  • The Innovative University: Changing the DNA of Higher Education from the
           Inside Out by Clayton M. Christensen and Henry J. Eyring (review)
    • Abstract: A few years ago, the administration at the university of alberta sent copies of The Innovative University: Changing the dna of Higher Education from the Inside Out by Clayton M. Christensen and Henry J. Eyring to various faculty members. Whether we were meant to be introduced to the miraculous ways of professional administration or whether they wanted to give us warning as to governmental and therefore administrative vision, I do not know. It matters little. By now, we are all aware of the growth of the corporate university, and this institution is much like many others in which the public university—and perhaps the public sphere—is coming under increasing stress from government and corporate interests. This book ... Read More

  • For the Love of Doll(s): A Patriarchal Nightmare of Cyborg Couplings
    • Abstract: Thirty years after the publication of Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto, machine-human couplings have manifested in a subculture of men who love dolls. More than sexual objects, these increasingly lifelike machines serve as intimate companions. Self-identified iDollators offer a case study in the potential mutations of Haraway’s vision, revealing what can happen when cyborg technologies are controlled by those invested in conventional social boundaries. The capitalist-patriarchal culture is a stark contrast to Haraway’s socialist-feminist utopia. The innovations she hoped would lead to a postgender dream world have instead resulted in a hyper-gendered nightmare.The centre of iDollator culture is the RealDoll, “the ... Read More

  • “More Human Than Human”: “Flattening of Affect,” Synthetic Humans,
           and the Social Construction of Maleness
    • Abstract: We’re all schizophrenic, with defective emotional lives—flattening of affect, it’s called.What I’ve done … that’s become alien to me. In fact everything about me has become unnatural; I’ve become an unnatural self.In philip k. dick’s novel, androids are unable to empathize with or feel for others. Their absence of spontaneous emotional response to hypothetical scenarios is the diagnostic used to distinguish them from humans. Androids’ disconnection from others and lack of affective response constitute the “affective flattening” to which Pris, an android, refers, understood in Dick’s novel as a defect that, when unattributable to mental illness, marks one as other than human. Thus, above, Pris lies to her human ... Read More

  • Introduction: Our Automated Bodies/Our Selves
    • Abstract: What is an automated body? What constitutes automaticity or makes an action or an impulse automatic? What is the difference between an automatic—or reflex—response to stimulus and an automated—machinic—response? What is the difference between a body that is constituted as a machine and a body that is self-acting in the way we understand the human body to be? Is an automated body always a machine? Is a human body always not a machine? Or always one? This special double issue of English Studies in Canada arises in response to a recent proliferation of narratives in which automated bodies call into question the nature of humanness, both as it is comprehensible in relation to the machinic and to “artificially” ...

  • Depersonalized Intimacy: The Cases of Sherry Turkle and Spike Jonze
    • Abstract: What i call “depersonalized intimacy” posits modes of being with one another that are not predicated on a self that is in control of its own value, its own self-knowledge, or its own interpersonal interactions. The demand to be a knowable, self-aware, and authentic self thwarts many a friendship, love affair, and intimate conversation, and yet we continue to turn to the self-help aisle or Oprah to learn to be better at expressing and knowing ourselves. When that fails, we lament that we are misunderstood, unheard, and unmet by the other. This disappointment suggests that there is a transparent, authentic, and real self that needs recognition and mirroring. But this self is, I believe, a product of the neoliberal ... Read More

    • Abstract: In the 1960s, media theorist marshall mcluhan posited the impossibility of understanding a culture without understanding its technologies. He argued that “culture and technology are inseparable because the effect of any new technology is so far-reaching as to reshape the culture that embraces it” (Gordon 14). Half a century later, David Bell similarly observed that in order to understand how “people and digital technologies interact, how we live together […] we need to look at the stories that are told about these ways of life; stories that have material, symbolic and experiential variants” (5). Given the recent ubiquity of online communications tools like Facebook, Twitter, and blogging in urban Canadian culture ... Read More

  • Stephen Harper as Killer Robot
    • Abstract: Stephen harper is not a killer robot,” claims a Tumblr blog that was active in 2011 to 2012. The subheader stresses the blog’s ironic tone: “Why would you even think that?” (Caribou). In popular culture and public discourse, especially on the Internet, the image of Canada’s former Prime Minister Stephen Harper is conspicuously characterized and caricatured as robotic and sinister. The critical popular representations of Harper that have proliferated in memes, social posts, and websites, as well as citizen journalism and mainstream news media, have prominently featured tropes of automation and automatism: zombies, Frankenstein monsters, cyborgs, and, above all, robots. Amidst popular culture’s hordes of ... Read More

  • “Anthropomorphic Drones” and Colonized Bodies: William
           Gibson’s The Peripheral
    • Abstract: William gibson is known as “the godfather of cyberpunk” and is most well known for his part in revitalizing science fiction in the 1980s, particularly with his influential debut novel Neuromancer (1984) in which he coined the term “cyberspace” and wrote about virtual reality in terms of a “matrix” that inhabitants would experience as spatial and visual.1 Gibson tends to write in trilogies, as his first nine novels show. These series—the Sprawl, the Bridge, and the Blue Ant trilogies—are set in three different time periods and are populated by characters who reappear from one book to the next. Each trilogy moves closer to our contemporary time; the Sprawl trilogy (1984 to 1988) is set in a future very far ahead of ... Read More

  • We Can Rebuild Him and Her: Bionic Irony, Hysteria, and Post-Fordism’s
           Technological Fix in The Six Million Dollar Man
    • Abstract: Silvia Federici and George Caffentzis have observed that, when it comes to utopian visions regarding the societal benefits of space travel, it is not so much the alleged reasons for making a journey to Mars that matter but “what they can do to you on Mars when they get you there” (58). Programs such as the Apollo missions or even current speculation about manned missions to Mars, whatever scientific benefits might be expected, simultaneously generate a host of less obvious outcomes that are nonetheless useful from the point of view of social control, nation building, and ideological reinforcement. Collecting moon rocks might have added to the storehouse of human knowledge, but the Apollo missions were also ... Read More

  • Northrop Frye’s Uncollected Prose ed. by Robert D. Denham (review)
    • Abstract: Does literature have a social function? If so, what? Or—wait—that’s a stupid question. Literature must have a social function—otherwise, why would it exist—and in every culture in human history? But if literature has a social function, what is it? What is literature “for”? Then there is that other question: What is literature, anyway? If “literature” is a legitimate category, something that corresponds to a reality, then what characterizes it? Or is the category just a mystification, a kind of illusion? Academics are not that interested in these questions. But the questions are there, in the manner of the elephant in the room. In the manner of the elephant in the room, to ignore it just makes it more pressing ... Read More

  • Shakespeare and the Performance of Girlhood by Deanne Williams (review)
    • Abstract: In her new book Deanne Williams helps to amend the traditional belief that medieval and early modern English families placed little value on girls. Indeed, while girls were certainly victimized within early modern patriarchal social structures, many enjoyed affectionate relationships with their kin. Girls were also productive, necessary members of domestic economies and, at times, at least minimally educated. More specifically, Williams corrects what seems to be an unbelievable omission: a total lack of lengthy academic studies on girlhood in William Shakespeare’s plays. Although billed as a book on Shakespeare, half of Williams’s work here draws connections to other early modern professional playwrights and ... Read More

  • Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing into Thunderbird by Armand Garnet Ruffo
           (review)
    • Abstract: Perhaps it should not have come as a surprise that the growing presence of indigenous people in Canadian cultural and academic life would not only add new perspectives to scholarly discourse but also challenge the very notion of what constitutes scholarship. This is certainly the case with Armand Garnet Ruffo’s Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing into Thunderbird, a learned biography that does not include a single citation and tests the distinction between the factual and the fictive and the empirical and the mythical.An Anishnaabe from the northern Ontario town of Chapleau, Ruffo is a poet-academic who has made a reputation for himself primarily with biographical long poems about figures like the conservationist and ...

  • Modernism: Keywords by Melba Cuddy-Keane, Adam Hammond, and Alexandra Peat
           (review)
    • Abstract: Modernism: Keywords opens with a direct gesture to its predecessor, Raymond Williams’s 1976 Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society, while also marking out its principal differences: the narrower focus on modernism, the integration of digital technologies used in a manner loosely akin to Moretti’s distant reading, and a rich hyperlinking (in print) of the thematic nodes of each alphabetized entry. That is, the print book adopts the curatorial and editorial elucidation of each topic that would be expected from a tertiary source while drawing inspiration from the humanities computing scenarios in which alternate relations might emerge through digital technologies. The accomplishment here is akin to the ... Read More

  • Identity Technologies: Constructing the Self Online ed. by Anna Poletti
           and Julie Rak (review)
    • Abstract: The collected essays in Identity Technologies provide not only a timely examination of contemporary digital identity practice but serve as “an experiment in interdisciplinary dialogue” (Poletti and Rak 3). Contributors come from diverse academic backgrounds including (but not limited to) auto/biography and new media studies, borrowing theories and methodologies from each other’s fields as means of interrogating the potentially limiting assumptions of their respective areas of expertise. The volume’s commitments are largely concerned with interdisciplinarity: to demonstrate how auto/biography studies’ recent troubling of notions of subjectivity and concern with how the “self” is produced through representation (5) ...

  • A Special Hell: Institutional Life in Alberta’s Eugenic Years by
           Claudia Malacrida (review)
    • Abstract: A Special Hell is an important contribution to scholarship on eugenics that both supplements and extends our understanding of the broad spectrum of eugenics in Canada. Malacrida’s primary interest is in what she calls “a passive form of eugenics,” namely the “lifelong internment of ‘mental defectives’ ” (4) at the Michener Centre, a provincially-run institution located outside of Red Deer, Alberta. Although described by the province as a centre for “the residential care and training of mentally defective Albertans” (3), Malacrida’s analysis leads her to conclude that Michener is more akin to a “gulag” (30) or prison than a care facility. Founded in 1923 as the Provincial Training School, at its peak in 1970 the ... Read More

  • Postcolonial Life Narratives: Testimonial Transactions by Gillian Whitlock
           (review)
    • Abstract: The introduction of Gillian Whitlock’s Postcolonial Life Narratives: Testimonial Transactions immediately alerts readers to its impressive scope. The book successfully draws connections between life writing produced and read in disparate places at disparate times by disparate audiences in order to demonstrate the ways in which life writing can articulate the impact of conflicted human subjecthood on bodies, lives, and peoples. The book is divided into two parts along a temporal logic, but variations on the term “divided” are inappropriate descriptors for Whitlock’s text, given its constant attention to unexpected connections between groups of texts.Part 1 focuses on what we might broadly call “pre-contemporary” ...

  • Mechanized Bodies, Human and Heavenly: Melancholia and Thinking Extinction
    • Abstract: Something is taking its course.Thinking has interests that do not coincide with those of living.In his 2011 film melancholia, lars von trier posits an intractable problem: the extinction of all living bodies as the result of Earth’s inevitable collision with a heavenly body, a rogue planet named Melancholia. Melancholia is a science fiction masterpiece, yet there are none of the robots, cyborgs, or prosthetics often characteristic of hard sf, new wave sf, and cyberpunk fiction concerned with the human body. Instead, von Trier’s film considers mechanical philosophy and mechanism to pose uncomfortable questions recently examined by speculative realist philosophers: “how does thought think a world without thought?” ...

  • Becoming an “Automatic Gesticulator”: Hollywood’s Mechanized Threat
           in American Modernist Fiction
    • Abstract: In 1933, nathanael west left his job as a New York hotel clerk to join a wave of westward migration. Spurred by faltering publishing and theatre industries in the east and lucrative offers from Hollywood studios, West was one of hundreds who packed their bags in the early 1930s and boarded trains for Hollywood. A latecomer within a generation of American modernist writers who sought to create a new literature to capture the tumultuous spirit of a new industrial, mass-mediated century, West’s early novels had failed to find an audience beyond a select group of fellow avant-gardists. Although he had published three critically praised novels, as biographer Joe Woodward recounts, West had at that point made only $780 ... Read More
