  • "Dreaming on Behalf of the Community": A Conversation with Nuruddin Farah
    • Authors: Garuba; H.
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: "Dreaming on Behalf of the Community" presents the edited transcript of a conversation I had with the Somali writer Nuruddin Farah in his Cape Town home a few months before the publication of his latest novel, Hiding in Plain Sight. The previous novel, Crossbones, marked the end of his third trilogy of novels known as the Past Imperfect trilogy. The end of one cycle of novels and the beginning of another provided an opening to ask him questions about his next project and its relation to his earlier work. In this conversation, the author sheds light on these and other issues that have been central to his writing career. He discusses, among other things, his dreams for his country, the Somali diaspora, the place of African writing in the world, the question of literary prizes and their influence on writers and in setting agendas for the literary world, and so on. It is a rare glimpse of a writer's reflection on his work and the literary world.

  • Teacherly Texts: Imagining Futures in Nuruddin Farah's Past Imperfect
           Trilogy
    • Authors: Garuba; H.
      Pages: 15 - 30
      Abstract: This essay attempts to locate the work of the Somali novelist Nuruddin Farah within a tradition of African and postcolonial critical thought that privileges "teacherliness" as a measure of value and significance in its discourse and as an aesthetic principle in literary texts. It argues that for most postcolonial literatures or literatures from emergent literary spaces (to use Pascale Casanova's term), literary value inheres as much in the teachability of the text as in whatever other aesthetic qualities it may possess. This means that the text's ability to illustrate, rework, or represent some theme or issue considered to be of major significance and to open it up for teaching is as much a source of literary value as any of its other formal qualities. In locating Farah's latest cycle of novels within this intellectual genealogy, I read Farah's Past Imperfect trilogy as consisting of novels that depict the movement from the teacherly texts of decolonization to the teacherly texts of postcolonial globalization.

  • The Authoritarian Personality Revisited: Reading Adorno in the Age of
           Trump
    • Authors: Gordon; P. E.
      Pages: 31 - 56
      Abstract: The landmark 1950 study in social psychology The Authoritarian Personality represents a significant attempt to correlate right-wing political orientation with psychological or characterological dispositions. As a collaborator and coauthor of the study, Theodor W. Adorno brought to the research project a unique set of philosophical and social-theoretical concerns that were not always consonant with the stated aims or underlying assumptions of the group. In his "Remarks on The Authoritarian Personality" (a text that was not included in the published 1950 work), Adorno laid out a series of objections that call into question the notion of an underlying personality structure; they suggest that under the modern conditions of the late-capitalist culture industry, the individual as a psychic unity is beginning to dissolve. This dissenting perspective deserves notice, especially in an age that has seen the reemergence of authoritarian politics in the United States.

  • Ishiguro's Diptych: Art and Social Democracy in The Unconsoled and Never
           Let Me Go
    • Authors: Ryle; M.
      Pages: 57 - 73
      Abstract: In making aesthetic performance and aesthetic education central to his dialectical evaluation of social democracy, Kazuo Ishiguro especially addresses teachers of culture. The Unconsoled and Never Let Me Go explore the position of art in European social-democratic society since 1945. To read these works in that historicist spirit (despite their nonrealist genre) is to identify social referents of central importance to their meanings. The city of The Unconsoled is typical of post–Cold War Europe in its emphasis on "culture," in a world where civic mutuality coexists with economic inequality. The novel considers the relationship between the pianist Ryder's art and his apparent indifference to "deep-seated, intractable" social problems. Never Let Me Go explores the contradictions of the welfare state from the vantage point of a later neoliberal Britain: from here, despite those contradictions, the experiment of giving "clones" an aesthetic education can be seen to have had a progressive aspect.

  • The Speech of Dasein: Heidegger and Quotidian Discourse
    • Authors: Gelley; A.
      Pages: 75 - 93
      Abstract: Martin Heidegger's denunciation of Gerede (idle talk) in §35 of Sein und Zeit is scathing: "Idle talk is constituted in this gossiping and passing the word along, a process by which its initial lack of grounds to stand on increases to complete groundlessness." But how might this concept be understood in relation, for example, to Mikhail Bakhtin's idea of the dialogic and heteroglossia or to the notion of discours as it has been developed by Émile Benveniste, Roland Barthes, and Gérard Genette? This essay undertakes a reading of the "lapse" or entanglement of Dasein that situates the place of Gerede in its sense-making capacity. This potential of Gerede—one that is based on the covering/uncovering mode of Erschlossenheit and of truth as a-leitheia—draws out an implication of Sein und Zeit that in part runs counter to its explicit argument and to Heidegger's later work on language.

  • The Spring and the Reel: On Film and Revolution
    • Authors: Chrostowska; S. D.
      Pages: 95 - 125
      Abstract: This essay deals with the problem of filmically representing political revolutions. In working out what film can do with and for revolution, it argues that the representation of revolution is not as powerful or mobilizing as the reflection of revolutionary practices and ideas, always at a distance from the realm of representation. Documentary practices, I contend, can serve active reflection on the side and site of struggle. The concept of reflection leads to a deeper phenomenological and historical understanding of such documentary footage, as well as an understanding of the dynamics of revolutionary events themselves. The essay responds to political-theoretical discourse positing the "invisibility" of politics and the People. Its central claim is that film, but also more broadly audiovisual media in all their current proliferation, can have a revolutionary function that is usefully distinguished from the old one of symbolically representing revolutionary unity. Film need not be reduced to a medium of collective self-representation, of imagining the people as "One," when it is also engaged in the diffuse work of creating revolutionary subjects out of the process of collective reflection. As both a record and a means of this reflection, film can be revolutionary in ways that are as far from the practices of Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov as they are from those of Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong.

  • Musical Affordance and the MP3
    • Authors: Randall; R.
      Pages: 127 - 143
      Abstract: The materialization of music by means of notation and recording has had a number of consequences. On the one hand, it facilitates the transmission of music across space and time. On the other hand, formats have allowed music to become an excludable and rivalrous good. Formats embody a tension between music as an emergent social practice and music as means for controlling social practice. Jonathan Sterne's recent book, MP3: The Meaning of a Format, explores the subject of digital audio formats in general and the MP3 in particular. This essay problematizes Sterne's ideas of perceptual coding, compression, and format in an attempt to place them in a broader cultural and psychological context. By doing so, I hope to provide a clearer picture of who we are as musical beings and offer an alternate view of how musical formats serve us. I refine Sterne's format theory to include the idea of affordance and argue that the MP3 facilitates a new era of participatory media.

  • Unintelligent Design
    • Authors: Tenen; D.
      Pages: 145 - 156
      Abstract: The Infinite Monkey Theorem (IMT) is a familiar trope (involving monkeys and typewriters), meant to explore the limits of randomly generated composition. In this essay, I draw a brief genealogy of the trope in philosophy and in fiction, discuss its relevance to several major conversations on aesthetics, science, and creationism in the twentieth century, and finally examine an actual text written by a troupe of Sulawesi macaques.

  • Frontier Anthropology and Chinese Colonialism in the Southwestern Frontier
           during the Second Sino-Japanese War
    • Authors: Yen; H.-p.
      Pages: 157 - 186
      Abstract: This essay explores the connections between colonialism, nationalism, and anthropology in China's southwestern frontier. During the Second Sino-Japanese War, the pressing problem of national survival encouraged the Nationalist state and anthropologists to collaborate in an effort to civilize and develop the southwestern frontier area. Intensive investigations into the non-Han frontier societies and proposals to assimilate these peoples and their cultures produced during this time helped set the foundation for the aggressive and complete colonization of the area by the Communists later. This essay makes clear how colonial activities, including employing anthropological knowledge as a tool of control, were often legitimized by the state and the intellectual as efforts of "nation building." The legacy of Chinese colonialism of the frontier—as well as its continuing impact—is reflected in increasing conflicts between the dominant Han and the non-Han and the militant separatist activism of the latter in today's China.

  • Our "Most Signal" Failure: Henry Adams, Ulysses S. Grant, and the
           Transformation of Political Temporality
    • Authors: Carter; S.
      Pages: 187 - 212
      Abstract: This essay treats a question addressed by many readers of Henry Adams: How should we understand his response to the administration of Ulysses S. Grant? Though some critics suggest that Adams's reaction is misguided, petty, or even irrational, analysis of his postwar writings indicates that his critique of Grant rests upon a diagnosis of a shift in the temporality of politics following the US Civil War. Taking Grant as exemplary of this more thoroughgoing historical transformation, Adams examines the intertwining within the administration of two seemingly contrary politicotemporal imaginaries: a stagnant time of political repetition—associated here with a Weberian rationalization and disenchantment of the world—and an anarchic time of disorienting economic growth—the volatile temporality of capitalist creative destruction, here captured by Paul Valéry's notion of "unpredictability." In contrast to both these senses of political temporality, Adams represents the persistent absence of a time of intelligently directed social change. Articulating the period's shifting relationship between time and politics thus defines a consequential problematic that illuminates the deeper historical significance of Adams's critique. Further, by locating in these early writings inchoate concerns that, more fully elaborated, also inform his later works, the essay emphasizes a consistent line of development within Adams's thought and sets the stage for its reassessment taken as a developing whole. Finally, with an eye toward resurgent considerations of politics and time in the present moment, the essay closes by suggesting how Adams's oeuvre, so reconceived, might speak to these contemporary concerns.

  • Postdigital Global Literary History: On the Fourth Edition of The
           Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics
    • Authors: Reed; B.
      Pages: 213 - 239
      Abstract: This review essay takes the occasion of the publication of the Fourth Edition of The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics to ask what it might mean, in the digital present, to use print as a medium for trying to speak comprehensively and authoritatively about the history of poetry around the world from beginning to present. It argues that this particular reference work is a "postdigital" creation that makes use of the format of the print codex to suggest that its plethora of authors and entries, whatever their disagreements and failings, have been assembled into a global community of scholars collectively capable of recounting the whole of poetry's history as an art form. Particular attention is paid to The Princeton Encyclopedia's coverage of poetry by North American indigenous writers.

      Abstract: In "Did the Digital Age Kill the Literary Star?" Richard Purcell looks back on Adam Bradley's Ralph Ellison in Progress: From "Invisible Man" to "Three Days before the Shooting" in light of Edward Snowden's revelations that the White House and the National Security Agency have been secretly collecting metadata on private citizens. The essay asks what Bradley's book and Ellison's fiction have to say about the role of the critic and literature when faced with the undemocratic forces of technology and progress.
