  • Editor's Column: Witnessing Catastrophe, Interpreting Catastrophe
    • Abstract: This issue focuses on catastrophe. It is a concept that calls out for a comparative approach; it compels and challenges us to think in an inter- and cross-disciplinary fashion. Thinking catastrophe today raises multiple questions. What constitutes a catastrophe' Is catastrophe another name for human tragedy, something to be feared and avoided' Or is it, from the perspective of neoliberalism, an opportunity to be exploited' Etymologically, catastrophe means an "overturning, sudden turn, conclusion" (OED), from the Greek kata, meaning "down" and strephein, or "turn." How do we interpret and bear witness to a catastrophe, to a sudden upheaval in the norm that creates a break with the interpretive habits through which ... Read More

  • Literature, Catastrophe, and Numbers: Saadat Hasan Manto and Tahar Ben
           Jelloun
    • Abstract: We are confronted every day with events that call for an ethically motivated response. To some extent this could be said of all events that affect human beings (and perhaps other species) for good or ill. But the events that strike most of us most insistently as calling for such a response are those that are painful, horrifying, and catastrophic. There is a broad assumption, tacitly underpinning most nations' support (however half-hearted or hypocritical it may be in practice) of institutions such as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice, encoded in religions, and implicit in cultural products that play on a thoughtful interest in the predicaments of real or imagined strangers, that people want ...

  • Racial Microbiopolitics: Flint Lead Poisoning, Detroit Water Shut Offs,
           and The "Matter" of Enfleshment
    • Abstract: In June 2013, the Detroit Water and Sewage Department (DWSD) cut off Flint's water supply in response to the city's proposal to reportedly save money by switching to The Karegnondi Water Authority (KWA). In the interim, the city made a contract for water with a private engineering firm. The Houston-based firm, Lockwood, Andrews & Newman, also had offices in Flint and began using the Flint River water instead of Lake Huron and Detroit River water. Meanwhile, in nearby Detroit and in April 2013, the DWSD entered a "contract with Homrich, a demolition company, to carry out 70,000 shutoffs in 730 days … sponsored by Rodney Johnson of Grosse Pointe" (Bellant et al.). The DWSD reportedly initiated this to do damage ... Read More

  • Carlos Mérida's "Goce Emocional": An Aesthetics Proposal Circumventing
           the Space of Catastrophe of Mexican Nationalism
    • Abstract: Toward the outskirts of Mexico City, a kind of monolith, serving as a memorial to Carlos Mérida's muralist art, replicates what were once the artist's "Leyendas mexicanas" (1950–52; Mexican Legends): a series of plastic architectural plates designed for the social interest housing complex called the Unidad Habitacional Benito Juárez. With a magnitude of 8.1, the 1985 Mexico City earthquake destroyed the murals in the Benito Juárez complex—and thus, too, the very last of Mérida's public art in Mexico, which had already suffered for decades from governmental negligence and indifference. The monolith's square shape and its location at Fuentes Brotantes, a remote housing complex in the city, evokes the Mexican state's ... Read More

  • Troubled Waters: Liquid Memory in the Wake of Disaster
    • Abstract: Artists who undertake the commemoration of a disaster are faced with a dizzying array of aesthetic choices that affect how a calamitous tragedy will be tacked to the fabric of collective memory. This essay considers the strikingly similar implications of compositional and formal choices in two visual representations of disaster which, at first glance, bear no resemblance: Théodore Géricault's 1819 tableau, The Raft of the Medusa [Le Radeau de la Méduse], and Michael Arad's Reflecting Absence, a memorial to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in Lower Manhattan.Géricault's Romantic painting (Figure 1) depicts a group of survivors of the shipwrecked Medusa ...

  • Goodbye Crude World: The Aesthetics of Environmental Catastrophe in Michel
           Faber's The Book of Strange New Things and Edward Burtynsky's Oil
           Photographs
    • Abstract: For Halloween in 2015, The Guardian published a piece on the fears of a range of authors including novelist Michel Faber. Faber recalled the sense of alarm he felt as a child while viewing a Christian inspirational film. It was set in a circus in which a Jesus-like clown takes on another's suffering as a magician saws his female assistant in half. Faber was frightened, he says, because as a nine-year old he was unable to read the film allegorically as a parable of Christ's passion redeeming humanity. He saw only the violence done to the woman fully felt by Christ-as-clown, whose face contorted with agonising pain during the performance. To those familiar with Faber's work, and perhaps especially his recent, and by ... Read More

  • Writing the Hyper-Disaster: Embodied and Engendered Narrative after
           Nuclear Disaster
    • Abstract: The accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on April 26, 1986 was caused by both faulty design and operator error (Kortov and Ustyantsev 12–13) and the resulting radioactive plume affected a broad swath of Europe, most dramatically in the area of Ukraine surrounding the plant. Approximately 120,000 people were evacuated from the area around the Chernobyl plant and it is impossible to know how many people across Europe were affected by radiation from that disaster. A United Nations study estimated that approximately 4,000 deaths might ultimately result from the drifting radiation, but a report commissioned by the Green Party members of the EU Parliament suggests that the numbers might actually reach into the ...

  • Overturning Catastrophes
    • Abstract: The word catastrophe is derived from the Greek word katastrephein, meaning a "sudden turn" or "overturn" (from kata=down and strephein=turn). In Greek theatre, it designated the last parts of a tragedy, the moment when the action begins to unravel and the protagonist has to face the consequences of their actions. In the 1700s, the meaning was extended to include any sudden disaster, leading to the now frequent conflation between disasters and catastrophes. Writing on theatre and catastrophe, Federica Bueti contends that "kata-strephein is, then, not the tragic death of the hero, but, rather, the moment when the ethical dilemma of the hero is made visible, a cue of further collective reflection" ("The Theatre of ...

The story of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the political agitator credited with having brought the British Raj to its knees through satyagraha, has been immortalized, inspiring 20th century civil rights movements around the world. The story of V.S. Srinivasa Sastri, diplomat, renowned writer and orator, leader of the Indian Liberal Party, and, at ten days his senior, Gandhi's "conscience-keeper" (Ramanan 24), is largely forgotten.1 If Gandhi, known as the "Mahatma," is the epic revolutionary hero of India's anticolonial ...

  • Catastrophic Education: Saving the World with H. G. Wells
    • Abstract: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe."Education is no less immune to catastrophe than any other area of life. A student who fails all of their courses because they are grieving the loss of a loved one, and another who drops out of school because they are in love, are both "educational catastrophes." So too is a teacher who becomes obsessed with their research and as a result neglects their students, friends, and family. And, to be sure, schools that fail to educate their students or that have a large proportion of them drop out are also educational catastrophes.There are of course many other examples of educational catastrophes like the ones described above.

  • Transculturality and the Gesta Romanorum in Light of Hartmann von Aue's

    • Abstract: We have long recognized the enormous literary productivity of the genre of late medieval verse narratives. Wherever we look, we discover significant processes of reception, translation, adaptation, and modeling of older sources for the own purposes. Marie de France, in her lais (ca. 1180–1190) indicates that she could have drawn from Latin sources, but that she preferred utilizing ancient Breton folk tales. Geoffrey Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales (ca. 1400) drew freely from Boccaccio's Decameron (ca. 1351), among many other sources. Those also included the rich corpus of fabliaux, twelfth- and thirteenth-century Old French ribald verse narratives that enjoyed great popularity all over Europe far into the early ... Read More

"You will greatly oblige me by informing me on this point," he writes, "for it is just this connection between the original and the translation that expresses most clearly the relationship of nation to nation and that one must above all know if one wishes to encourage a common world literature transcending national limits" (qtd. in Strick 349). Goethe's concern with the fate of his German work in English accentuates his insistence on seeing the processes underlying the creation and proliferation of world literature as ... Read More

As far as anthologies go, these allegations are difficult to deny. Past anthologies are disappointing: Queneau's three-volume history of literature (1958), which gave India and China two hundred and seventy pages in the final volume, or Hans Meyer's Weltliteratur, which made no mention of non-European literature at all (Fokkema 1290–91).

In the latter text, Poe explicitly connects the Canadian-American waterfall to the Scandinavian whirlpool. He was not the first author to do so: if not a standard ... Read More

  • Frank O'Hara: Salute to the French Negro Poet, Aimé Césaire
    • Abstract: In the opening lines of "Ode: Salute to the French Negro Poets" (1958), midcentury American poet Frank O'Hara beckons: "From near the sea, like Whitman my great predecessor, I call/to the spirits of other lands to make fecund my existence" (1–2). O'Hara's "call" at once registers an entreaty and a commandment, foregrounding a poignant contradiction: the harkening "I" requires external confirmation of its own "existence." Likewise, the speaker's concrete identification with "Whitman," from whom he derives poetic ancestry and voice, is undercut by the ambiguity of the remote "other lands" and airy "spirits" that must birth him. O'Hara's lines are rife with tension, collapsing spatial proximity and distance, finitude ... Read More

Since the 1990s, the hope invested in truth recovery has become tied to the conviction that building shared narratives can bring people together. Truth commissions prior to 1995, such as those held in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Uganda, sought to develop a historical record but did not include reconciliation as part of their mandate. The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), which operated from 1995 to 2002, introduced the widespread association between truth recovery and reconciliation, operating on the ...

Among its concerns, the journal hoped to highlight the problem of translating experience into language asking: "How does one translate their experience of Arabness into another language whose signifying capacities will always tend towards distortion'" Whether the language is a European one or British and American English, the particular power dynamics between languages are concerns posed within a post-colonial frame of imperial and non-imperial languages.

Expanded from Santner's Tanner lectures, delivered at Berkeley in April 2014, the book lays the groundwork for a political theory of the "flesh"—a "jointure of the somatic and the normative" (24) that sutures human bodies to the structures that enable them to make sense of their being in the world and motivate them to action. In keeping with both psychoanalytic and certain poststructuralist discussions of the ... Read More

Recent books by David Cowart and Brian McHale are a good case in point.

  • Of Reality. The Purposes of Philosophy by Gianni Vattimo (review)
    • Abstract: The touchstone for Gianni Vattimo's reflection in Of Reality is a saying of Nietzsche: "There are no facts, only interpretations." Nietzsche then adds, "And this too is an interpretation." Down the postmodern rabbit hole we go, vainly clutching at truths or facts, scrabbling for any toehold that might arrest the play of interpretations. It is an endless freefall of course—we should not expect to find our footing in reality, or finally reach a stable philosophical foundation for knowledge. But what is the status of Nietzsche's 'thesis'' Is it a fact to say there are no facts' Is this an unarguable, uninterpretable truth' Nietzsche's rider, "And this too is an interpretation," cannily refuses to let that putative ...

    • Abstract: To understand Melville's Intervisionary Network, one must recall the differences between comparative literature and source study. A. Owen Aldridge, who taught so many of us about comparative literature, makes a good guide. In the early twentieth century the historical approach shaped the development of comparative literature, and influence studies proliferated. The historical approach waned during the second half of the twentieth century in favor of an aesthetic approach, and influence studies gave way to affinity studies. In other words, students of comparative literature now sought to identify affinities between two authors coming from different nations and writing in different languages, not necessarily to see ...

  • The Intellective Space: Thinking Beyond Cognition by Laurent Dubreuil

    • Abstract: Laurent Dubreuil's recent book, part of the Posthumanities series at the University of Minnesota Press, seeks to push beyond cognition, defined as "the minimal level" of "mental operations," and into another territory altogether (3). Specifically, the book delineates (and celebrates) "the intellective space," the mental zone of cognitive excess and failure wherein "thought and knowledge are performed and shared" at the moment of the present (3). "The intellective," Dubreuil writes, is both "a possible name for the productive undoing of cognition per se" and a way of addressing "the potential journey of ideas" that go beyond the base-level cognitive processes that are the subject of the cognitive sciences (3). In ... Read More

In her beautifully written text, Gould moves through source material in Arabic, Georgian, and Russian and delivers not only a much needed work on the Caucasus but also an important addition to scholarship on imperialism, colonialism, and forms of resistance. Rooted in theoretical scholarship and empirical data, that is, the author's personal ... Read More

There has never been an equivalent of a Jean-Paul Sartre in the U.S., and various candidates for similar status among humanists—Edmund Wilson, Susan Sontag, Noam Chomsky, Edward Said, or Cornell West, say—have never had the sort of influence over policymaking or popular culture that philosophers and activists in some other countries have enjoyed.

Even most of those who acknowledge an influence of Nietzsche on modern drama tend to see it as philosophical rather than theatrical. Rarely is The Birth of Tragedy read as a text about theater. Kornhaber, highlighting the convergence of philosophy and theater, examines in the first half of the book Nietzsche's profound interest in and debt to drama and theater from The Birth of Tragedy through The Case of Wagner. In the second half, he reads the work of three modern dramatists—Strindberg, Shaw, and O'Neill—in the light of their reception of ... Read More

It is a study, however, that goes beyond the simple matter of childhood; rather, childhood and the matter of the medieval child become the starting point for a well-researched and deftly articulated discussion of ontology and ontogeny, the problem of being and becoming. In this series of essays, Mitchell investigates the various ways in which subjects and objects are linked, suggesting that human identity can be understood through various assemblages of the textual, visual and artefactual. As such, his discussion of morphogenesis through stories of hominization without homogenization ... Read More

French-language readers may know him as the author of La Psychanalyse du feu and L'Eau et les rêves, but English-language readers know him primarily as the author of The Poetics of Space. As Smith's subtitle indicates, in addition to his poetics, Bachelard also made significant contributions to the philosophy and history of science. Indeed, as Smith argues and demonstrates, Bachelard's writings on the literary imagination can be better understood in light of how knowledge works in a scientific context. Accordingly, he gives us a splendid overview of Bachelard's writings on the scientific mind as it was transformed by ... Read More

It was the favored style of absolutism and colonial capitals, and not surprisingly the totalitarian regimes of the thirties, whether the Rome of Mussolini, the urban fantasies of Hitler and Albert Speer, or the Soviet Socialist Cities of Stalin. In her compelling book Laura Chiesa examines an alternative vision of architectural, urban narrative, and modernist space, arguing for a "spatial turn" that reconfigures the assumptions of space and time. ...
