  • Cinematic Past Lives: Memory, Modernity, and Cinematic Reincarnation in
           Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past
    • Abstract: <p>By Anders Bergstrom</p> Cinema is like memory in its ability to organize temporal experiences and allow viewers to make sense of past experiences, even ones which they themselves did not live. For instance, Alison Landsberg’s concept of “prosthetic memory” emphasizes cinema’s ability to make “available images for mass consumption” (176), images of which the viewer has no lived experience yet that play a role in the production of viewers’ identities. Such personal memories underpin the human relationship to temporality. Cinema as cultural memory emphasizes the role it can play in the transmission of collective stories and chains of tradition. In both its individual impact and cultural functions, cinema fulfills many of the same roles in ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne McCance</p> With this, the third Mosaic special issue featuring papers presented at the October 1-4, 2014 A matter of lifedeath conference, I continue to be astonished at the diversity of presentations the conference attracted, and to be grateful to presenters who have given so much care and patience to converting their conference presentations into publishable essays, eleven of which are gathered here. No doubt, with this issue, Mosaic staff and student interns will breathe a sigh of relief: over two years of their dedication contributed crucially to making the conference a great success and now, with this third proceedings issue, they can celebrate bringing the conference to a most satisfying end. For me, the moment is ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Lived Exemplarity of HeLa: A Matter of Lifedeath
    • Abstract: <p>By Vincent Bruyere</p> Matters of life and death are routinely invoked—and once they are, it is too late. There is not much time left for reflection. By contrast, in the eventuality that thought happens and that a form of reflexivity is sustained within a state of affairs—no matter how disruptive or unnoticeable this form is—it will be under the guise of matters of lifedeath. As such, and in tension with a certain understanding of the mission of bioethics and medical humanities, I invoke lifedeath to name what puts into question engendering techniques and other logics of transmission, starting with forms of historiography predicated upon a caesura between past and present, corporality and personhood, death and aliveness. Thus, in an ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Ghost Dance: Derrida, Stiegler, and Film as Phantomachia
    • Abstract: <p>By Garry Sherbert</p> Aphantomachia, or battle of phantoms, is staged in the book Echographies of Television between the co-authors Bernard Stiegler and Jacques Derrida, who do not agree on how to expose the “reality” of the photographic, or cinematic, referent as a fiction, as something made. The point of contention between Stiegler and Derrida emerges most sharply in the chapter entitled “Spectographies,” in which Stiegler launches a series of questions regarding Derrida’s critique of Karl Marx in the movie Ghost Dance, filmed in 1983 by director Ken McMullen. Although the theme of mourning and melancholia borrowed from Freud also dominates Ghost Dance, the dialectical materialism of Marx takes centre stage in “Spectographies” when ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Mortality Project
    • Abstract: <p>By Salomé M. Krell</p> It may be the curse of being a philosopher’s daughter, but I found myself having an existential crisis. What is the meaning of life? What is the point to all of this cyclical stuff? Generation after generation, year after year, season after season, day after day, minute after minute. Then one day I had the thought that perhaps it is in this “middle” stage of life, where one is most distant both from the beginning and (as far as I know) from the end, that it is particularly difficult to incorporate the value and the lessons of those bookends: birth/childhood and old age/death. I experimented with connecting more to childhood; a fun, liberating exercise. I had no steady work at the time and lived alone, so every day ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • More than Life: Human Dignity and the Problem of Rights
    • Abstract: <p>By Stella Gaon</p> Early on in The Animal That Therefore I Am, Jacques Derrida draws attention to what he describes as “a subjection of the animal” of “unprecedented proportions” (25, emph. Derrida’s). It entails a level of violence and cruelty, he says, that “some would compare to the worst cases of genocide.” And, he adds in parentheses, “there are also animal genocides: the number of species endangered because of man takes one’s breath away” (26). I cite these lines to indicate right away my sympathy with them, but also because, as Derrida goes on to argue, these facts open up immense questions of compassion, ethics, and responsibility. No one can deny, he says, that animals can suffer. They can experience terror, or panic, or ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “Killing the Indian in the Child”: Death, Cruelty, and
           Subject-formation in the Canadian Indian Residential School System
    • Abstract: <p>By Bryanne Young</p> On New Year’s Day in 1937, four boys run away from the Lejac Indian Residential School. Instead of following the railway, they walk across Fraser Lake, bound for the Nautley Reserve—“straight towards the light that was the village” (Milloy 142), across the vast and planar flatness of the frozen water. What the Medical Examiner report says they were wearing that day: underwear, blue denim shirts, overalls, heavy woolen socks, low-cut rubber boots, and no caps. The report makes no mention of mittens, gloves, or scarves. By the time the boys are found frozen and dead (again, from the Medical Examiner’s report): One boy has lost one rubber and a sock. His foot is bare. Three are lying huddled together. The fourth ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Against ‘vital materialism’: The Passive Creation of Life in
    • Abstract: <p>By Joseph Barker</p> A recent publication on bioethics and biopolitics begins with the claim that “we seem to have reached a moment in history where every distinction and opposition is made no longer in relation to life, but within it, and where life is a problem inextricably theoretical and practical, ontological and political” (Bianco and Beistegui 5). One of the most well-known proponents of the centrality of “life” is Gilles Deleuze. Deleuze’s work has helped to spark an interest in life, a concept which has become paradigmatic in the humanities today. Deleuze’s concept of life has been used to collapse the oppositional distinction between a “passive” matter and an “active” life-force and to grant a specific type of activity to ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “Courriers de la mort”: Denis Thériault, Sigmund Freud,
           and Jacques Derrida
    • Abstract: <p>By Kathryn Droske</p> With its focus on dreams, doubles, and desire, and a protagonist with the sobriquet “Libido,” the novel Le facteur émotif by Denis Thériault nods to the work of Sigmund Freud and lends itself to a psychoanalytic approach. This essay proposes a reading of Le facteur émotif with Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle, but rather than espousing a purely psychoanalytic methodology, I propose a comparative literary interrogation of Thériault’s and Freud’s texts through and with Jacques Derrida’s “Spéculer — sur ‘Freud’.” Derrida’s text (which constitutes part two of his three-part work La carte postale. De Socrate à Freud et au-delà and offers a close reading of Beyond the Pleasure Principle that deeply informs my own) ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Temporal Exile in the Time of Fiction: Reading Derrida Reading
           Blanchot’s The Instant of My Death
    • Abstract: <p>By Christopher Langlois</p> One of the tasks that Martin Hägglund sets out to accomplish in his highly influential publication Radical Atheism is to rescue the Derridean deconstructive relation to justice and alterity from being conceptually perverted by ethical metaphysicians like Robert Bernasconi, Drucilla Cornell, and Simon Critchley. Hägglund is particularly hostile toward attempts in the secondary literature of deconstruction to align Derrida’s writing with the transcendental ethics of Emmanuel Levinas. What such attempts fail to appreciate is that nowhere does Derrida’s thinking pursue the “ideal justice” embedded in what Hägglund severely criticizes as a Levinasian pre-temporal economy of alterity, ethics as metaphysical “first ... <a href="">Read More</a>
