  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Along with publishing four issues annually, each on time and up to the highest standards, Mosaic runs a successful student intern program, training each intern in all aspects of academic journal publishing, organizes an international interdisciplinary conference approximately once every four years, and regularly welcomes Distinguished Visiting Lecturers to the University of Manitoba. Each Distinguished Visiting Lecturer presents a public lecture, conducts an interview with Mosaic, and leads an open seminar. Most recently, Dr. Rebecca Comay travelled to Manitoba as the journal's and the University's distinguished guest. Her interview is published in the journal's March 2017 special issue: The Mosaic Interviews. This ... Read More

  • Testament of the Revolution (Walter Benjamin)
    • Abstract: I've often thought it odd that the posterity of the Frankfurt School has always measured itself in terms of generations—first generation, second generation, and so on.1 (By some counts we are now up to the fourth or even fifth generation, which means that they must breed them very young.) While feminism surges forward in waves (first-wave, second-wave, third-wave), and Hegelians procreate through mitosis, splitting off horizontally into rival wings or factions (left and right), or vertically (young and old), critical theory for some reason seems to want to propagate dynastically along patrilineal lines.I'm not sure where exactly Walter Benjamin fits into this line of filiation or if he is even really part of the ...

  • Bodybuilding
    • Abstract: There are no wall texts in Expansion Field—no map, no signage, no words in sight. And that's a nice touch, if only because it blocks the nervous shuttling from pillar to post, from work to caption—the hypnotic tug of title, description, explanation, interpretation that can be so blinding in every museum. Who hasn't had that sinking feeling upon leaving an exhibition of having spent more time in the gallery reading than actually seeing' Antony Gormley's decision to withhold textual apparatus might forestall death by caption—the avalanche of language that can so easily smother a work by turning it into an illustration, allegory, manifesto, message from the beyond—what Robert Morris once described, in his own somewhat ...

  • Jorie Graham's Passion for the Reel: The Lyric Subject Encounters the
           Image
    • Abstract: In "Fission," the opening poem from Jorie Graham's Region of Unlikeness, a young woman sits in a darkened movie theatre. It is 1963. Suddenly a stranger appears. He stands in front of the screen, waving his arms and "screaming that the President's been shot" (5). When the sound shuts off, and as the film (Stanley Kubrick's Lolita) flickers silently in the background, the distraught poet in the guise of a young girl contemplates what has suddenly been revealed to her. Evoking the title, Graham shows in the lines that follow that this trauma stems from a narrative fission effected by the confluence of image and event, here a gap in lived history itself. The poem suggests that the overlapping of the cinematic ... Read More

  • Imitative Identity, Imitative Art, and AI: Artificial Intelligence
    • Abstract: Early in Steven Spielberg's AI: Artificial Intelligence a stereotypical college professor, Alan Hobby (William Hurt), explains to his admiring research team the historical context of his ambitious next project: "To create an artificial being has been the dream of man since the birth of science," he proclaims: "Not merely the beginning of the modern age, when our forebears astonished the world with the first thinking machines: primitive monsters that could play chess." In the Professor's telling, this still-unfulfilled "dream" accompanied the birth of science, rather than the more recent invention of computers. AI deals with what W. J. T. Mitchell refers to as a "biocybernetic" artificial human, one that could only ... Read More

  • DHTML Dynamics: The Stir/Fry/Texts and the Networked Combinatorics of the
           Wreader
    • Abstract: In an e-mail exchange with Leonardo Flores, Jim Andrews makes what some could call a contradictory statement on the relationship between a work and its reader in relation to "born-digital" writings such as his Stir/Fry/Texts. Andrews writes, "X does not mean whatever we want it to mean," explaining that while there may be a range of valid interpretations of a work, "this range is limited" and can form "a combinatorium of possibilities." He explains that such limitations "[evoke] the sense of a space, a set of combinations distributed over a (limited) space" (Flores 134). Given what the Stir/Fry/Texts allow a reader to do in terms of reorganizing a number of source texts into seemingly endless combinations of new ... Read More

  • Comment y faire face: La parole faite chair de Virginie Despentes
    • Abstract: Virginie Despentes est une écrivaine-cinéaste française dont l'œuvre porte principalement sur la sexualité et les genres médiatiques. La nature intermédiale1 de ses livres et films est autant thématique que formelle : Despentes reconnait que « la femme »,2 figure centrale de son œuvre, est à la fois concept et être ; elle utilise texte (roman, essai) et image-son (films, clips vidéo) pour remettre en question le féminin. C'est justement l'interaction entre ses livres et ses films qui crée un troisième genre, le livre-film, une chimère constituée de deux moitiés dont la forme et l'essence restent intactes, et dont chaque moitié gagne de sa complémentarité avec l'autre. Despentes se sert des deux médias pour ... Read More

  • Intimate Practices: Music, Sex, and the Body in J. M. Coetzee's Summertime
    • Abstract: In one of the undated fragmentary notes that conclude Summertime—the final instalment of J. M. Coetzee's autofictional trilogy Scenes from Provincial Life—the author's alter ego narrates an incident that took place in his seventeenth year and that has beset him with bitter remorse ever since.1 John recounts how his father, who had been in Italy as a corporal in the Allied army when the war ended and there acquired a love for opera, buys an album of Renata Tebaldi singing famous arias. The teenage boy, however, professes to despise the music for its "sensuality and decadence" (472) and insists on playing J. S. Bach's B-minor Mass. In a fiercely patricidal act, he draws a deep score in the Tebaldi record with a razor ... Read More

  • Echoes of Celilo Falls and Native Voices in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's
           Nest
    • Abstract: The native voice in American literature is indispensable. There is no true literary history of the United States without it, and yet it has not been clearly delineated in our scholarship.When N. Scott Momaday emphasized the importance of acknowledging the Native voice in American literature in The Man Made of Words, he was undoubtedly referring to the rich body of oral and written stories that have been told in Native communities across the continent since time immemorial; surely he was not referring to Bromden's voice (or lack thereof) in Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Approaching Cuckoo's Nest from an American Indian Studies perspective, however—that is, listening closely to Bromden's voice and ... Read More

  • Surveillance and Counter-Surveillance in Philip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly
    • Abstract: In June 2013, details of PRISM, the United States National Security Agency's (NSA) electronic surveillance programme, leaked to the public. For many, PRISM was shocking in both its secrecy and its wide reach, encompassing dominant technological companies including Facebook, Microsoft, and Google. The revelations about the NSA's PRISM program, situated in a moment of widespread corporate tracking and state surveillance, ask us to grapple with both the contours of the contemporary subject of surveillance and questions of "what now'" and "what next'" This essay takes up these questions by turning to Philip K. Dick's 1977 A Scanner Darkly, a novel written in an earlier moment when heightened surveillance and secrecy ... Read More

  • Reading Race and "Rita" in The Lady from Shanghai: Decrypting the Mogul,
           the Star, and the Auteur
    • Abstract: Even the greatest stars change themselves in the looking glass….Fredric Jameson posits that works of mass culture "cannot manipulate unless they offer some genuine shred of content as a fantasy bribe" ("Reification" 29). The unconscious "bribe" in question here is the "fantasy" of total autonomy that, instead of being confined to the director, circulates, as I will argue, between the director-actor, Orson Welles, the star-actor, Rita Hayworth, and the mogul, Harry Cohn, the head of Columbia, the company that produced the actor-auteur's The Lady from Shanghai in 1947. A re-reading of the ideological function of this capitalist fantasy in Welles's Hollywood oeuvre complicates recent analyses of race in The Lady by ... Read More

  • "Qui est là'": Negative Personhood in Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso
           Sea
    • Abstract: While Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea (1966) is widely acknowledged as an incisive example of "the Empire writing back," critical approaches in this vein have focused primarily on the role of Rhys's polyvocal narration in realizing her postcolonial rewriting of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre (1847). Shifting focus from "who speaks" to "who is there" (Qui est là') and following Gayatri Spivak's injunction that we read legal codification as a constitutive part of imperial violence, this essay interprets Rhys's novel as an exacting meditation on the violence of legal discourse on personhood in the 1830s and 40s.1 In Rhys's novel, British legal fictions proliferate examples of "negative personhood," rendering former slaves ...

  • Mourning, Memorial, and the Yizkor Books in Eli Mandel's Out of Place
    • Abstract: Canadian and Saskatchewan poet Eli Mandel's 1977 booklength long poem Out of Place is a complex and nuanced engagement with personal and communal loss, memory, and writing. In the presence of physical sites, artefacts, and memories relating to a childhood in various parts of southern Saskatchewan that are linked to Jewish communities, a process of mourning is catalyzed. Mandel explores a span of history, reaching into the nineteenth century and the migration of his parents from Russia along with other persecuted Jews to establish six main farmingbased settlements that dwindled and then disappeared as their inhabitants moved on to urban centres. The result of this work of mourning is the production of a physical ... Read More

  • On Comic Modernism: Impersonality in Eliot and Keaton
    • Abstract: Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in the theoretical doctrine of impersonality as it pertains to Anglo-American literary modernism in particular and cultural practice in general. Inspired in part by the work of Sharon Cameron and Tim Dean, the New Modernist Studies of Rochelle Rives and Christina Walter have convincingly moved the discussion of impersonality beyond the decadesold condemnation of it as a politically reactionary and ethically reprehensible compositional priority. No longer satisfied simply to condemn the rhetorical method as being either complicit with authoritarian social structures or as functioning as a means of evading responsibility for behaviour of which one should be ashamed ...

  • Warwick Thornton's Mother Courage: A Battle Cry for Aboriginal Art
    • Abstract: Visitors to dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany encountered a battered van parked in public spaces throughout the city, including the forecourt of an exhibition hall and Kassel's central station. The van, moved daily to different locations as a roving exhibit, was the Australian film director Warwick Thornton's intercultural installation, Mother Courage (2012). The installation was prompted by the modern German classic, Bertolt Brecht's Mutter Courage und Ihre Kinder (Mother Courage and Her Children [1939]). From Kassel, Thornton's Mother Courage moved to Melbourne, where it was exhibited in the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in 2013. The installation is richly textured, complex, and multivalent. ... Read More

  • On Transience, Transcendence, and Sublunar Metaphysics: Seamus Heaney's
           Spirit(ual) Level
    • Abstract: The Irish poet Seamus Heaney has argued about his own poetry: "there is a phrase, 'everywhere and nowhere,' but I would like the poems sometimes to give the feeling of 'everywhere and somewhere'." These words suggestively encapsulate Heaney's attempt at reconciling the ethereal supra-nature of that everywhere with the concrete, earthy root of somewhere. In other words, the spiritual transportation of the former is only attainable thanks to the launch pad offered by the latter, so that all transcendent perfection1 is apprehended in transience,2 is contingent upon a space and time. "That is the kind of poem I would like to write" (Carvalho Homem 29), argues the poet. In the light of this appreciation, the essay will ... Read More

  • Langage, subjectivation et identité chez Seamus Heaney
    • Abstract: L'une des conditions les plus importantes de la subjectivation, ou la construction du sujet dans la poésie de Seamus Heaney est la création d'une nouvelle langue, distincte du langage des prédécesseurs. Ainsi, de nombreuses références au langage,1 à la langue et à leurs implications dans la construction du sujet et de l'identité sont présentes dans sa poésie et sa prose ; ces conceptions constituent une poétique linguistique qui définit le processus de subjectivation. En effet, l'enthousiasme du poète pour l'examen du langage naît du rôle que la langue joue dans la création de l'identité et dans la subjectivation. La poétique linguistique et la subjectivation dans son œuvre sont étroitement liées et imprégnées ... Read More
