  • Editorial Statement
    • Abstract: Cultural Critique provides a forum for creative and provocative scholarship in the theoretical humanities and humanistic social sciences. Transnational in scope and transdisciplinary in orientation, the journal strives to spark and galvanize intellectual debates as well as to attract and foster critical investigations regarding any aspect of culture as it expresses itself in words, images, and sounds, across both time and space. The journal is especially keen to support scholarship that engages the ways in which cultural production, cultural practices, and cultural forms constitute and manifest the nexus between the aesthetic, the psychic, the economic, the political, and the ethical intended in their widest ...

  • 1968 Now, Then, and Again: An Opening
    • Abstract: Before it was a queer art, “failure” was a concept/event mobilized by parties to the subaltern historiography debate. In that context “failure” was roughed up for presupposing a certain temporal logic of “transition” (for example, from colonialism to nationalism), but in the hands of Gayatri Spivak it also took on a certain deconstructive cast, evoking less a methodological maneuver that belonged to the fraught predicament of postcolonial India and more a thought experiment dedicated to grasping the unsettled restlessness of “spacing” (l’espacement) itself. Aware of such precedents, we nevertheless open with “failure” for other reasons.A revolution that failed is always at the very least a revolution that was ... Read More

  • “It’s 1968, All Over Again”
    • Abstract: “It’s déjà vu, all over again.”How I wish I were writing about home runs! Instead, I must write about how the consequences of 1968 survive today, largely as residues of historical disasters that are still wreaking havoc.January 30, 1968. The Tet (or Lunar New Year) offensive by the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong rebels begins in South Vietnam, undermining public support for this undeclared war.2018. The “Vietnam Effect” continues in our Afghanistan and Middle East military strategies and foreign policies. President George H. W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq in the First Gulf War, President George W.

  • “What Use Is Althusser'”
    • Abstract: Louis Althusser spent much of 1968 hospitalized in a Paris suburb for a bout of depression.1 Perhaps it was his removal from the events of that May that sent him into a manic period of some weeks during which he wrote a book-length sequence of essays.2 We know only that these essays preserve that moment as one that afforded him new insight into how it was that political societies govern best when they appear not to be governing at all. It struck him that on both sides of the Atlantic something had happened to university education that opened up a gulf so deep between those who made political decisions and those who had to live and die by them that the educational apparatus could never be restored to a state quite ...

  • Was “1968” Sublime'
    • Abstract: As a response to the question of how “la pensée 1968” guides the project of cultural critique today, my title appears to present a false problem. To resuscitate a question that Jean-François Lyotard not only posed but also answered is “false” if it implies a finite referent that hails an audience for whom an historical event could be sublime, or not, depending on how one defines it. Yet this referent is not finite, and its unfulfilled possibilities continue to spur faith in the value of contemporary cultural criticism. Questions pertaining to whose “1968” as well as its when and where cannot be sidestepped. Born in Los Angeles in 1965, I was too young to discern the impact, aesthetic or otherwise, of “May 1968” as ... Read More

  • Let It Burn (Gillo Pontecorvo’s 1968)
    • Abstract: Nostalgic commemoration of the glories of the 60s and abject public confession of the decade’s many failures and missed opportunities are two errors that cannot be avoided by some middle path that threads its way in between. . . . Its opportunities and failures were inextricably intertwined, marked by the objective constraints and openings of a determinate historical situation.The time period—it seems—is the early nineteenth century. The setting is the Caribbean island and Portuguese colony of Queimada, which owes its name—“burnt”—to the circumstances of its conquest: when faced by indigenous resistance, its would-be colonizers set it ablaze, thereby christening it and exterminating its entire native population at ...

    • Abstract: There is still an immeasurable amount of unused dreams, of unsettled historical content.In January 1969, Daniel Cohn-Bendit stood trial for his role in the May events that had brought Paris to a standstill the previous spring. Asked by the judge to state his name, the student militant identified himself as “Kuroń Modzelewski.” His response confounded many in the courtroom, but Cohn-Bendit’s comrades would have understood the reference to Jacek Kuroń and Karol Modzelewski—two revolutionary Marxists whose critique of the Polish socialist state, “Open Letter to the Party” (“List otwarty do Partii”) had been translated into French and circulated at the Sorbonne during the ’68 student occupations.1 Cohn-Bendit’s gesture ...

  • The Prehistoric Left Wing at the End of the World: A Protest from
           Argentina’s Last Dictatorship
    • Abstract: “Rock is dead” is rarely a good place to start. But so begins a black-and-white mimeographed magazine, The Zangandongo: An Organ for Artistic Expression, published by teenagers midway through Argentina’s last, deadly military dictatorship (1976–1983). “Zangandongo,” a word that in Spanish means “lazybones-lay about-ne’er-do-well,” is used by a group of young writers who tried to make shocking statements but who also reiterated old news. “The di Tella is dead,” the first page continues, referring to the legendary Buenos Aires institute that was the heart of the Argentine avant-garde throughout the 1960s. “Dada is dead. Surrealism is dead. BUT THEY DID NOT DIE IN VAIN! . . . They gave birth to The Zangandongo” ... Read More

  • “Gucci Dans Les Rues” or May ’68 as Political Kitsch
    • Abstract: Without a doubt, the fiftieth anniversary of May ’68 is a dangerous moment. While the crisp symbolism of a half century necessarily invites a renewed spirit of critical reflection, it also opens the door to historical fetish and ideological capture. The risk, of course, is that the injunction to remember is itself a form of capture: under the guise of memory, the past comes to dominate the vicissitudes of the present by transforming its material potency into a nostalgic stream of revolutionary clichés. Indeed, how better to declare a politics dead than to suggest we must now give accounts of its storied legacy as one might give a eulogy for a life well lived' In a year filled with dedications and remembrances, such ...

  • Digital Graffiti Posters
    • Abstract: May 1968 has largely been positioned and remembered as a student movement; young unruly university students dominate both the contemporary imagery and the popular memory of the general strike in France. Kristin Ross has additionally argued that a romanticization of the “poetic graffiti” of the Paris streets overshadowed the fact that nine million workers participated in the general strike that reached virtually every aspect of French life. This willful forgetting of the larger context of the 1968 general strike reframes sincere complaints regarding objective injustice as the gripes of a few rebellious teenagers protesting the Beaux Arts education. Ross’s argument could be made, mutatis mutandis, for the way “the ... Read More

  • Nationalism, an Emancipatory Project' 1968 and After
    • Abstract: During the summer of 1968 I was employed as a student assistant in the office of the local hospital in a small southern Ontario city. There was one other student, a young woman who would be entering her senior university year in the fall. I had just finished my first year at the University of Toronto, and we spent coffee breaks in conversation sharing impressions and experiences. Her major was French, and one day she commented that she had just spent her third year abroad in Paris. I imagine my eyes must have widened: “You were in Paris in May'!” “Yes,” her answer came, “and it was horrible. I was fortunate to get a flight out before the airport closed.” It’s hard to believe my disappointment was not palpably ... Read More

(Then there were those who could not avoid the draft or did not want to do so. “Apocalypse Now”: “The horror, the horror.” John McCain—“Hanoi Hilton.”) Escape; draft dodging; public resistance; pacifism (and the Conradian specter). A mere sample of the various strategies employed by Americans to avoid the Vietnam draft; or to register opposition to U.S. militarism; or to remain true to one’s religious convictions. One way or another, the goal was simple: evade conscription ... Read More

    • Abstract: Adam Pendleton, Black Dada Flag (Black Lives Matter), 2015–2018. Digital print on polyester. 72 × 108 in (182.88 × 274.32 cm).It is 2018.1 The flag is almost illegible (fig. 1). It has been tied so tightly, hoisted up, held out to be a willing victim to hard sun and harsh winds. Tattered by vicious thunderstorms, violent rains, and the skin-cracking cold of the coldest of cold spells. It looks tattered. Tired. Worn and worn out. Torn almost asunder. Looking nearly ripped apart. Yet it still flies. Flutters in the breeze. Struggles to fight back. It is a marker of past horrors and, oddly also, a beacon for the hopes of the future. Pensive. Optimistic. It says a great deal about the seemingly overwhelming struggles ... Read More

  • Digital Redlining: The Nextdoor App and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe
    • Abstract: In the so-called long, hot summer of 1967, more than 150 riots took place throughout America—from Detroit to Tampa, Minneapolis to Newark. President Lyndon B. Johnson established the Kerner Commission to investigate the causes of the widespread unrest. The Commission researched and deliberated for about seven months before releasing the Kerner Report, an instant best seller. Among other things, the report argued that the protests were not a conspiracy planned by black communist agitators, as Johnson and others had suggested, but rather the inevitable outcome of long-standing discrimination and segregation.1 As the report explained, the cities the uprisings had occurred in had largely been abandoned by white ...

  • From the Assassinations of the 1960s to Stoneman Douglas: Guns, Violence,
           and White Masculinity in Crisis
    • Abstract: Six days after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that claimed seventeen lives and launched the #Never-Again movement, Oprah Winfrey joined a host of other celebrities in pledging $500,000 for the upcoming “March for Our Lives” planned for the U.S. Capitol. In her tweet, Winfrey lauded the students’ efforts, writing: “These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” The following week, presidential historian Jon Meacham made a similar analogy on Politically Incorrect, comparing the students to the civil rights activists he encountered in the 1960s. “There was explicit apartheid in my native region, in the ...

  • Take No Interest
    • Abstract: The basic organization of American society is the thing that has Negroes in the situation that they are in and never let us lose sight of it.In “The Other America,” a strained and disjointed speech delivered in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, just south of Detroit, on March 14, 1968, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reprised and updated themes most famously articulated five years earlier in his keynote address at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. By way of “a radical conception of the social gospel” (Cook 2016, 75), he characteristically linked the leveling spirit of the Christian prophetic tradition with progressive aspects of the American Revolution in order to indict the fundamental bifurcation of ...

  • Number Nine
    • Abstract: When asked by “Desert Island Discs” host Kristy Young why she had selected the Beatles’ cover of Chuck Berry’s “Roll Over Beethoven” to take with her to her desert island, Christine McVie (of Fleetwood Mac renown) responded by emphasizing what she called the “space” audible in the track. Like many Western composers of her generation, she valued this “space” for its potential, the invitation to experiment with musical expression. Or so McVie said. But, as a cover of Chuck Berry, this space might also be heard as separation, that is, as the racialized difference, the dermal schema structuring the loop between rock and roll and rock. However, in listening to the track as engineered by George Martin, one also senses ... Read More
