  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: This issue begins with a cluster of essays titled “Dwelling in a Global Age,” introduced by Alfred J. López. I would like to thank Grant Farred for initially proposing this topic as a special issue that he planned to guest edit with Professor López. Editorial differences, however, led to Professor Farred withdrawing from the project. Interested readers may find other essays on dwelling in Professor Farred’s new special issue, forthcoming in Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy. ... Read More

  • Dwelling in a Global Age: An Introduction
    • Abstract: What Heidegger invokes in this initially oblique passage are the interactions—really, the inextricability—of thinking, Being, and courage. What is at stake in the act of thinking is Being itself, and to fully claim Being requires, in Heidegger’s time as in our own, a measure of audacity and courage. I write these words in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, a moment every bit as portentous as the postwar time of Heidegger’s 1954 essay “Building Dwelling Thinking.” Notwithstanding every modern US presidential election’s hyperbolic claim to the status of most important election in our lifetime, the election of Donald Trump has undoubtedly and dramatically altered America’s—and arguably ...

  • Fantasies of Settlement: Heidegger, Tocqueville, Fichte, Faulkner
    • Abstract: Whereas we may think of human settlement as a simple fact of life, it is in many respects a far more imaginary conception than not. In his meticulous analysis of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Jacques Derrida never raises the question of whether the marooned man has settled the land, though much is said about Crusoe as a sovereign.1 Can one be a sovereign and not be settled? Can one build a permanent shelter, work the land, and stake out territory for hunting over considerable time without being settled? Or is settlement an impossibility for someone expecting rescue at any given moment and whose existence is therefore predicated on leaving a place where one doesn't want to be? The word “settlement” implies ... Read More

  • Wandering to Dwell: Heidegger and the Phenomenology of Dwelling in
           Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn
    • Abstract: Men alone, as mortals, by dwelling attain to the world as world. Full of merit, yet poetically, man / Dwells on this earth. In Heidegger’s writing dwelling—or the ways in which we live in the world—is suggestive of a unifying phenomenon pointing toward a place where things gather into what I will call an abiding wholeness.2 Abiding wholeness should not be taken to be the equivalent of sedentariness. It does not connote stasis. In other words, dwelling is the opposite of not being at home in the world and is neither akin to the mere occupation of space nor the forceful appropriation of it. Dwelling, as Heidegger suggests, may be actualized through a certain familiarity and intimacy with the ... Read More

  • Ruined Futures: Gentrification as Famine in Post-Celtic Tiger Irish
           Literature
    • Abstract: The relationship between representation and reality under capitalism has always been problematic. Debt relates to the future value of goods and services. This always involves a guess, which is then set by the interest rate, discounting into the future. Writing in a postausterity moment, the best way to address the lasting impact of the Celtic Tiger is to begin at its end. The year 2008 has come to signify a clear moment of demarcation for when the so-called New Ireland of the Tiger collapsed under the weight of speculative global capitalism.1 “Black 2008” has entered the timeline of Irish history as a moment of disaster that caused extensive damage to the fabric of the Irish economy and had major ...

  • Atlas Shrugged’s Shock Doctrine
    • Abstract: Naomi Klein opens the first chapter of her best-selling book The Shock Doctrine with an analogy. She compares the psychological hypothesis that an array of shocks “could unmake and erase faulty minds, then rebuild new personalities on that ever-elusive clean slate” (29) with Milton Friedman’s economic hypothesis that a course of painful policy shocks could similarly “depattern societies, . . . returning them to a state of pure capitalism, cleansed of all interruptions—government regulations, trade barriers and entrenched interests” (50).

  • Knowledge Work and the Commons in Barbara Kingsolver’s and Ann
           Pancake’s Appalachia
    • Abstract: Ann Pancake’s Strange as This Weather Has Been and Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior reconstitute the commons from the ground up. The novels’ women protagonists work on rural Appalachian land in response to the threats that privatization and extractive industry pose to ecosystems, cultural traditions, family, and finances. In these twenty-first-century narratives, working on the land encompasses agricultural labors such as gardening and foraging as well as intellectual labors of activism and scientific research. The forests of Tennessee and West Virginia were ‘everybody’s places before,’ one of Pancake’s aged characters explains (185); under the forms of enclosure that industry now practices, they are ...

  • Watching Time: Madison Smartt Bell’s All Souls’ Rising, Narrative,
           Historiography, and the Contemporary Historical Novel
    • Abstract: In his essay “Engaging the Past” Madison Smartt Bell addresses the issues involved in writing a historical novel about the Haitian Revolution. Bell refers to Michel-Rolph Trouillot’s work of Haitian historiography, Silencing the Past, in which, Bell writes, Troulliot argues that the ”overall image created by an historical narrative has more importance and plays a greater role in advancing the truth than the individual facts supposed to underlie it” (201). While more concerned with the silences history can render than with presenting an “overall image” of a historical narrative, Trouillot’s provocative thesis poses an interesting dilemma for the historical novel and the inevitable details that make up its ...

  • The Limousine and Technicity in Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis
    • Abstract: An author heavily associated with postmodern literature and, perhaps even more so, with postmodern theory, Don DeLillo occupies a complicated nexus in the second decade of the twenty-first century.1 Widely lauded for synthesizing and critiquing the media cultures of the eighties and nineties, as well as the Cold War that shaped and perpetuated such cultures, DeLillo reached something of a critical and literary apex with 1997’s Underworld, an achievement emphasized and mourned by the chilling symmetry between the novel’s cover image and the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, an event that—even more than the Kennedy assassination, which DeLillo dramatized in Libra —seems almost synonymous with DeLillo’s ...

  • Born Translated: The Contemporary Novel in an Age of World Literature by
           Rebecca L. Walkowitz (review)
    • Abstract: Serious readers are uneasy about reading in translation. They tend to assume that the nuances of a literary work are only recognizable in the language from which it originated. It would be limiting to read a translation. Ironizing this anxiety, Rebecca Walkowitz admits, “Some of my best friends read in translation. I bet some of your best friends do too” (171–72). In her wide-ranging new book, Born Translated: The Contemporary Novel in an Age of World Literature, Walkowitz challenges the distinction between original and translation by showing how a new kind of “born-translated” novel is mediated by and written for translation from the start. For many twenty-fist-century novelists, translation is not merely ... Read More

  • Planetary Modernisms: Provocations on Modernity Across Time by Susan
           Stanford Friedman (review)
    • Abstract: Susan Stanford Friedman’s name has become synonymous with the move to broaden modernist studies’ spatial and temporal borders, and Planetary Modernisms: Provocations on Modernity Across Time is her most sustained statement yet on the promises and pitfalls of the global turn in modernist studies. Part manifesto, part definitional excursus, and part cultural history, the volume asks readers to consider how modernism’s global turn has revolutionized the field of modernist studies. What periodizing concepts, geographic scales, and aesthetic criteria, Friedman wonders, allow us to see modernism on a truly global scale? And to what extent do such new lenses challenge our conventional understandings of what it ... Read More

  • Literature and the Creative Economy by Sarah Brouillette (review)
    • Abstract: In his final work, The Aesthetic Dimension (1977), the German philosopher and godfather of the student revolts in 1960s California, Herbert Marcuse, undertook a lucid analysis of the relationship between art and politics. While art is always necessarily entangled with the messy relations of capitalist production, he argued, it can transcend its material relations through formal innovation. Such aesthetic experimentation opens up another realm containing the seeds of a rebellious subjectivity that gives voice to a new experience of art and of truth. For Marcuse, this truth is the Marxist commitment to revealing advanced industrial capitalism’s exploitation of the individual. Caught on an endless treadmill of ... Read More

  • At the Violet Hour: Modernism and Violence in England and Ireland by Sarah
           Cole (review)
    • Abstract: Sarah Cole’s fascinating new study At the Violet Hour: Modernism and Violence in England and Ireland takes its title from The Waste Land. Optically and aurally close to “violent” yet also denoting spring flowers and the color purple, the word “violet,” Cole argues, “herald[s]” violence in Eliot’s iconic poem (74) while simultaneously “transform[ing]” and “beautify[ing]” it (75). Thus, “violetness” becomes an apt figure for what she names the “enchantment” of violence (75). However, because the words are so similar, the “violet hour” is always at risk of shading back into the “violent hour,” and thus violetness also serves as an evocative figure for the complex interplay explored throughout the book between ...

  • Miniature Metropolis: Literature in an Age of Photography and Film by
           Andreas Huyssen (review)
    • Abstract: Since 2003’s Present Pasts, Andreas Huyssen has been counted among the group of humanities scholars whose texts and ideas flourish naturally across the world thanks to the way they diffuse through many different fields of knowledge, from literature to media studies, architecture, and the visual arts. The reason for this adaptability and widespread interest is probably due to the way Huyssen’s essays reflect a shift in German scholarship since the mid-1920s, when modernist thinkers and writers such as Walter Benjamin, Siegfried Kracauer, and Theodor W. Adorno developed a new approach to understanding culture. Instead of focusing just on specific objects—as science often does—they started to create a ... Read More

  • American Road Narratives: Reimagining Mobility in Literature and Film by
           Ann Brigham (review)
    • Abstract: Trends in travel writing may change over time and circumstance, but, Ann Brigham argues in American Road Narratives, one crucial factor remains constant: narratives of travel articulate the meanings and functions of mobility in ways that negotiate shifting ideological currents molding national self-awareness. In other words, mobility is a mode of engagement with the tensions and anxieties that shape conceptions of America and Americanness. “The so-called freedom often associated with mobility,” Brigham suggests, “always occurs in relation to conflicts around the introduction of spatial and social otherness” (9–10). Instead of enabling freedom from the dominant order or escape into a new life, going on the ... Read More

  • Dreams for Dead Bodies: Blackness, Labor, and the Corpus of American
           Detective Fiction by M. Michelle Robinson
    • Abstract: Robinson’s Dreams for Dead Bodies offers an amended history of US detective fiction from the 1830s to the 1930s as an interracial genre that arose in conjunction with changing social structures of labor, economics, and industrialization. Setting itself apart from a growing body of scholarship on detective fiction’s relationship to literary modernism, Dreams devotes significant attention to nineteenth-century developments and the narrative devices of detective fiction, contending that “American authors seized these devices to represent a sociology of racialized labor, to challenge public fictions of racial separation, and to gauge prospects for interracial sociability” (202). Robinson chooses texts at the ... Read More

  • Yoknapatawpha Blues: Faulkner’s Fiction and Southern Roots Music by
           Tim A. Ryan (review)
    • Abstract: Tim Ryan’s Yoknapatawpha Blues is the first book-length study of Faulkner and the blues, and it is an insightful, original contribution to both Faulkner studies and music criticism. Ryan’s book continues the recent trend in Faulkner scholarship of situating and understanding Faulkner’s work in relation to the popular cultures of his era. The relationship of Faulkner and the blues artists working at the same time just down the road from Oxford in the Mississippi Delta, however, has been a neglected area of inquiry, as Ryan notes: “Very few articles in the vast and ever-expanding body of Faulkner criticism address the blues, and those that do are almost exclusively concerned with the author’s demonstrable ...

  • Designing Fictions: Literature Confronts Advertising by Michael L. Ross
           (review)
    • Abstract: Jean Baudrillard is the resounding influence in Michael L. Ross’s recent, concise analysis of transatlantic novels variously engaged with the advertising business. Though his work is never confronted directly, tidbits from The Consumer Society are sprinkled throughout to texture and drive Ross’s interpretive engine. This generally represents the relationship to cultural theory throughout the book: Ross is shooting toward a more general, interdisciplinary audience through detailed and compelling readings of fiction rather than their theoretical containers. Thus H. G. Wells “prefigures” Baudrillard by representing the wastefulness of promotion and consumption in Tono-Bungay (55) or Philip Larkin “anticipates” ... Read More
