  • The End of American Literature
    • Abstract: "It was not a street anymore but a world."This is the opening line of Don DeLillo's 2007 novel, Falling Man, but it could also be the opening line of the new millennium.Bruce Robbins says this sentence can be read as a description of "lower Manhattan in the chaotic minutes after the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001." But so too, he continues, can it "also be read as a description of Falling Man itself, and perhaps of the contemporary American novel in general." "So read," resumes Robbins, "the sentence would suggest that the American novel has recently become more worldly, whether because of 9/11 or in response to larger causes that 9/11 stands in for."While Robbins calls this proposition ...

  • Introduction to Focus: Corporate Fictions
    • Abstract: Toward the end of William Gaddis's novel of American capitalism, J R (1975), a truck passes by on a Manhattan Street displaying five dwarves who are house painters and the words, "None of Us Grew but the Business." At the time of publication, readers might have taken this phrase and Gaddis's novel itself, as a corporate satire: one that traces (in grueling detail), the construction of a multi-billion-dollar empire by a solitary pre-adolescent, J R van Sant, who owns and operates a conglomerate from his grade school payphone. A handkerchief that he'd put over the mouthpiece makes him sound 'bigger,' or so he'd imagined—even as our handheld devices today allow us to continually update and reconstruct our own ... Read More

  • Love Your Corporation
    • Abstract: Most academics you and I know are deeply suspicious about corporations and so-called corporate culture, above all when it intrudes on the university and academic life. And for good reason: we can all identify changes in procedures, in employment practices, in values, in the very language and tone that speaks from the core of our own universities that reflect the influence of for-profit management practices and its "philosophy." The labor practices of the modern university and its attitude toward intellectual property are especially pernicious, since they undermine faculty autonomy and authority over policies pertaining to teaching, to research, and to the evaluation of these activities—they undermine the very ...

  • Before Corporate Monoculture
    • Abstract: In today's America the word "corporation" has a distinctly derogatory feel to it. Academics frequently deplore the "corporatization" of the American universities such as the increasing top-down mode of governance and the for-profit motive of upper administrations. In his ambitious and densely argued book The Corporate Commonwealth, Professor Henry Turner seeks to historicize the term and thus unshackle it from its modern negative connotations by exploring its complex and wide-ranging function in early-modern England.Turner argues that the joint-stock, limited-liability, for-profit type of corporation familiar to us today was a relative latecomer to western Europe, appearing in its modern form in England only in ...

  • Un/Official Worlds
    • Abstract: Having hoped for some time to write a book defining the "Unofficial World," I read Mark Seltzer's The Official World (OW) with gratitude as well as admiration. Any concept enjoys dynamic complementarity with its contrary, so I will use this review to inventory Seltzer's design with the intention of creating a template of sorts for my own use. Cicero observed that one could invent a new work by treating an individual text as a poetics. My purpose does not go that far, although part of my interest concerns heuretics (the logic of invention) as a mode of reading, or even of hermeneutics, in the spirit of Roland Barthes's proposal that the proper response to a text is another text (there is no meta-text).There is a ...

  • Towards Buen Vivir
    • Abstract: I'll hedge a bet: anyone who picks up Brian Massumi's Power at the End of the Economy is already open to the idea that rational choice is neither the subsequent nor the actant of neoliberal capitalism. Surely there are various exemplars of rationally based logics in the processes of the global economy. One only needs to mention the flows of exchange and debt, the complex algorithms, programs, and computer languages invented to place instantaneous trades, the high sophistication of investment vehicles of exchange traded funds, or the endless number of rational operators that take place at all levels and scales between people, industries, and computers in economic life. These processes are logical. They can be ... Read More

  • Ghostbusters 2.0
    • Abstract: In my book Fictions Inc.: The Corporation in Postmodern Fiction, Film, and Popular Culture (2014), I present a case for the original Ghostbusters (1984) as an allegory of the neoliberal transformation of New York City (and by extension America) in which the Ghostbusters themselves function as a kind of corporate savior. In the film, of course, the group is basically a small business on par with pest control exterminators, as one of the group's television commercials suggests. However, the Ghostbusters's business booms after the city finds itself unable to cope with the growing problem of paranormal activity—the ghosts that commit petty crimes, loitering/haunting, and comprise a troubling "otherness" that can be ...

  • Academia."edu"
    • Abstract: There is so much scholarly content posted currently on the site that Academia.edu has become difficult to avoid.The first question, "Why Are We Not Boycotting Academia.edu?", which was the title of a December 8, 2015 symposium organized by The Centre for Disruptive Media at Coventry University, is a crucial one. Unfortunately, it is also, at this moment in time, an apparently easy one to answer. The main reason "we" are not boycotting Academia.edu is because, as an organization backed by an estimated $17.7MM in venture-capital funding, Academia.edu has been able to successfully fulfill a need for a well-designed, easy to use, freely accessible, global repository of scholarly work across the disciplines. In fact ... Read More

  • A Digital Publishing Model for Publication by Writers (for Writers)
    • Abstract: In Chicago, the afternoon of 26 October 2016, I attended a showing of Hearts & Minds in the Electronic Visualization Lab of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Scott Rettberg, in collaboration with Roderick Coover, Arthur Nishimoto, and Daria Tsoupikova, created this 3D virtual reality theatre enactment of recollections by American soldiers who were active in the torture of political prisoners during the Iraq War. The project was based on interviews with soldiers conducted by collective violence researcher John Tsukayama. Though the identities of the soldiers were protected and their recorded words spoken by actors, the recollections took on a distinctive immediacy against the backdrop of desert landscapes ...

  • An Ontological Turn
    • Abstract: In a recent essay on the "contemporaneity"of contemporary literature, James F. English contrasts his "small-scale approach" of statistical analysis to Fredric Jameson's famous "large scale explanation" in Postmodernism (1991), stating that "[o]ne is tempted at every little step to take the familiar shortcut of appealing to 'larger social forces,' to 'the cultural logic of late capitalism,' to 'contemporary society' as a whole. But at this stage in the evolution of literary studies, that shortcut has begun to look like a dead end." English accurately summarises the burgeoning concern for many current literary scholars—that "large scale explanations" often oversimplify the complexities and aporias of contemporary ... Read More

  • The Economics of Book Reviews
    • Abstract: Book reviews are still one of the more effective ways to garner attention for individual titles. But it is no secret that the rise of the digital publishing world over the past ten years has brought about hard times for the printed book review. Not only have many print venues for book reviews disappeared, it has become increasingly difficult to find financial models for those that remain to persist.Costs associated with printed book reviews include editing, layout, proofing, printing, mailing, and fees for reviewers. Eliminating printing and mailing reduces the associated costs for these processes, but leaves the editorial, layout, proofing, and reviewer fees. While digital book reviews may be less expensive to ... Read More

  • Scorched Earth
    • Abstract: This collection contains some elements rare in contemporary poetry, but also an attitude, an atmosphere, quite familiar from Twentieth Century American culture.The fresh features include vivid imagery, with emphasis on visual experiences keenly observed and precisely captured in language. These scenes may be of human forms and human interaction, or aspects of nature—living creatures and the environment they inhabit. Thus the intense and careful scrutiny, together with a meticulous choice of words, gives the book a hard, sparkling quality.The more familiar trait is evident in the overall tone—sparse, restrained, laconic, hardboiled, skeptical, ironic. Even in the portrayal of what would seem to be deeply emotional ... Read More

  • Fighting Back
    • Abstract: Bronner offers insight into the hateful rhetoric, disregard for truth, and hysterical paranoia that have increased over the past year. The political atmosphere surrounding the election and reelection of President Barack Obama led Stephen Bronner to write this short but insightful examination of bigotry. The election of Donald Trump makes Bronner's study, and the solutions he offers, even more important now than when it first appeared in 2014. Bronner offers insight into the hateful rhetoric, disregard for truth, and hysterical paranoia that have increased over the past year and culminated into what was, for many, the shocking choice of American voters last November. He also shares his thoughts on resisting the ... Read More

  • Crime Puzzle
    • Abstract: He Comes in Fire delivers a satisfying journey through a suspenseful plot with many richly developed characters. Crime novels act as contract between writer and reader allowing engagement in plot and titillating paranoia surrounding each character until a successful resolution. Too much information confuses the reader, causing feelings of inadequacy. Too little information and the reader feels tricked; if there is a plot twist not deftly handled the reader feels robbed after entering this contract, as if there was no good faith. Aaron R. Even's novel, He Comes in Fire delivers a satisfying journey through a suspenseful plot with many richly developed characters.The narrative is character driven, suspense is built ... Read More

  • Land of Immigrants
    • Abstract: Juliet Shields is an Associate Professor at University of Washington and the author of the newly published book Nation and Migration: The Making of British Atlantic Literature, 1765-1835. Her field of interest is to explore the eighteenth and nineteenth century British and American literature and investigate its role and contribution in the formation of national identities. The book Nation and Migration: The Making of British Atlantic Literature, 1765-1835 deals with the dialectical relationship between nation and migration and the role played by the British migrants in legitimizing the American cultural identity and the formation of Trans-Atlantic literature. The book first unravels the impact of Ireland ... Read More

  • State of Loss
    • Abstract: Winner of the 2015 Iowa Poetry Prize, Lindsay Tigue's debut poetry collection System of Ghosts is indeed filled with ghosts and the feeling of being haunted, the sense that we live in a state of continual loss. Ghosts, after all, are reminders of people we have lost who have returned to tell stories from the other side of the grave, to settle scores, to be sure we remember that they once lived and that we, too, will die. But Tigue's poems also are filled with life, with the smell of Irish coffee and Noxzema face wash, with once-in-a-lifetime meals of wine and pasta, with a class trip to an aquarium, with bike rides and crying children and trains and mountain passes. These are poems grounded in daily living, which ... Read More

  • The Science of Relationships
    • Abstract: It was its fascinating cover and the explanatory note about it that first interested me in reading The Mathematics of Disengagement. To a large degree, the poems therein are faithful to the title's concept, which I loosely interpret as the science of relationships.Interspersed, however, and including one whole section, are what I will call the "word poems."The first few poems alone intimate this balance between persons and words. "Type of Arc" tells us to "Notice the voltage, the weight of certain moments…the evidence of molecular impact on // hidden agendas."

  • Who We intend to Be
    • Abstract: The House Across from the Deaf School presents us with a sui generis voice of hope, struggle, reminiscence, and despair. In his third collection of short stories, author Michael Gills engages readers with a psalm in one hand and bloody hunting knife in the other. The author's lexicon is raw-boned and muscular, insightful and severe. There is soulfulness at work here. This fiction blends the colloquial intuition of heartbreak with the physical fluency of a pugilist intent upon protecting his broken heart.Set in the backwoods of Lonoke County, Arkansas, "where every house had a vegetable garden growing up to its back door, and dead animals littered the roadside," protagonist and sometimes anti-hero Joey Harvell ...

  • The Eye Divine Measuring
    • Abstract: House of Sugar, House of Stone casts its spell wide into the darkness at the heart of mothering, as if to reduce the power of that darkness by naming it. The first poem, "Lullaby," in the tradition of Rock-a-bye Baby, is not especially comforting, beginning the book with the lines: "Where is the girl who hid in the woods / when wolves came." We get the sense there will be no sentimentality in this book. Emily Pérez uses all the old gifts of poetry—repetition, alliteration, rhyme and meter—to help us navigate the ferocity she approaches. Listen to how the second poem, "Under the Roof," begins:Under the roof, the shingled roof, nounder the eaves, the leaf-clawed eaves,no, under the clouds collecting slow ... Read More

  • Poems & Photos
    • Abstract: "Little Book" in Sharon Olinka's Old Ballerina Club gives the reader a clear sense of Olinka's style of writing poems. She speaks from the viewpoint of a small cookbook saved by chance or design from the Mosul Library in Iraq. The stanzas are brief, the lines telegraphic: "The spines of my / friends shake. // I am the lucky one... / Saved by a man's hand, / stuffed in a coat pocket."The small book seems to represent its author, who by the poem's end, speaks quite anthropomorphically.The small book seems to represent its author, who by the poem's end, speaks quite anthropomorphically: "Within me voices / whisper of flour, cinnamon and honey. // Who will see / my page on pudding, / and smile?"The endearing ...

  • The Old Neighborhood
    • Abstract: "A photograph never remains innocent. Just like a mirror is never innocent."Here Lies Memory is a book that skillfully braids myriad existential themes to form a multi-tiered narrative suspended between forms. Those in search of a Faulknerian novel set in Pittsburgh will find themselves easily absorbed by Doug Rice's lyrical meditation, Here Lies Memory, a book that skillfully braids myriad existential themes to form a multi-tiered narrative suspended between forms. From the relationship between identity and place to the speciousness of sight and words, Rice investigates how simulated realities and gentrification's continued oppression of already marginalized groups—minorities, the indigent, the addicted, and the ...
