  • Life(and)death in Harry Potter: The Immortality of Love and Soul
    • Abstract: <p>By Andrea Stojilkov</p> Today, when one hears the name Harry, the most immediate association which comes to mind is probably either Prince Harry of Wales, or the hero of seven J.K. Rowling novels—our well-known and beloved Harry Potter. It is hard to say who of the two would win the flattering title of Britain’s most popular Harry. While Prince Harry’s official name is Henry Mountbatten-Windsor, his fictitious namesake is presented to us simply as Harry Potter—bearing a common, inconspicuous name. However, some critics suggest that there is possibly much more to the meaning of Harry Potter’s name. Could this actually be an allusive wordplay on the true nature of the character? According to John Granger, toward the end of the series, the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Lines of Flight of the Deadly Nightshade: An Enquiry into the Properties
           of the Magical Plant, its Literature and History
    • Abstract: <p>By David M.J. Carruthers</p> Thanks to the plant, fixed in place by its roots, dead plants, animals, and humans are unmoored from their “resting places”; they travel or migrate, just as in certain non-Western religions souls can find their reincarnation in plants. Unlike the crypt, supposed to keep (though it never lives up to its mission) its inhabitant place, surrounded by inorganic matter, the grave covered by a flowerbed is always already opened, exceeding the domain of the earth and blurring the boundaries between life and death. Michael Pollan, in an interview for the documentary film of his non-fiction book, The Botany of Desire, treating “plants so compelling and useful and tasty they would inspire human beings to seed ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • L’apoptose selon Claude Régy : un dispositif scénique
    • Abstract: <p>By Cyrielle Dodet</p> Ou mieux un état de vie et de mort à la fois. Découverte depuis une quarantaine d’années, l’apoptose est un phénomène de mort cellulaire programmée qui permet la vie. Par cette imbrication fondamentale, c’est une toute nouvelle représentation de la vie qui émerge, comme l’explique le médecin et chercheur immunologiste français Jean-Claude Ameisen qui a contribué à sa découverte. Dans La sculpture du vivant, ce dernier précise le processus mis au jour : toute cellule contient des exécuteurs moléculaires pouvant précipiter sa fin et des protecteurs moléculaires, qui sont eux capables, un temps, de neutraliser les exécuteurs. Deux données qui paraissent contre-intuitives en découlent : la vie résulte « ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “A vital, unliveable force”: Rhythm through Nathalie
           Sarraute and Schizoanalysis
    • Abstract: <p>By Fernanda Negrete</p> Rhythm is the force that in the work of Nathalie Sarraute, Gilles Deleuze, and Félix Guattari sustains a non-oppositional relationship between life and death. In Deleuze’s Logique de la sensation, rhythm constitutes “a vital power [puissance] that exceeds every domain [of the senses] and traverses them all” (Logic 42). He is quick to add that this rhythmic unity of the senses invokes, beyond the “lived body” (le corps vécu), “a more profound and almost unliveable Power [Puissance],” and that it must only be sought “at the point where rhythm itself plunges into chaos” (44). Rhythm’s necessary interplay with chaos unleashes an at once vital and deadly power, traversing the senses, with their corresponding organs ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Queer Children, Queer Futures: Navigating lifedeath in The Hunger Games
    • Abstract: <p>By Riley McGuire</p> It has been a decade since Lee Edelman published his scathing polemic grounded in Lacanian psychoanalysis—No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive. A lot can happen in a decade. A decade ago, I was a teenager; two decades ago, I was a child. I hope to begin making sense of the ways in which Edelman’s work resonates in our contemporary moment, and I mention my decades-long removal from childhood because this is the aspect of Edelman’s work with which I am most preoccupied: the Child. Of course—as Edelman repeatedly insists throughout No Future—I am here referring to the Child with a capital “C,” not the lived historical realities of any “actual” children; to the social symbolic function of the Child, a figure ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Lifedeath and Suicide
    • Abstract: <p>By David Farrell Krell</p> In her recent book How Are We to Confront Death? Françoise Dastur discusses some ways we ought not to confront it. She mentions the current mania for high-risk behaviours and extreme sports, both of these related, as she says, to our mindless worship of celebrity. These are mere evasions of death, evasions posing as courageous confrontations. Dastur then goes on to include suicide among these evasions of our mortality. Before I had a chance to think, I found myself disagreeing with her, even in print, and I rarely disagree with her about anything, since that would be high-risk behaviour— she has an uncanny knack for getting things right. It isn’t so much that I had arguments or ideas about suicide’s not ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • A Sense of Time: Aristotle, Nietzsche, and Heidegger on the Temporality of
    • Abstract: <p>By William McNeill</p> The phenomenon of movement in the broadest sense appears to be essential to any and every understanding of life. Movement or kinēsis in the broadest sense, as Aristotle explained, means not just movement in space (kinēsis kata topon), but encompasses the movement intrinsic to the nutrition, growth, and decay of an organism. These, indeed, are the most fundamental characteristics of everything that lives. “Among bodies of natural origin, some have life, while others do not,” remarks Aristotle in the De anima. “By life we mean self-nourishment, growth, and decay” (Soul 412: a13). While the capacity for self-nourishment, growth, and decay may exist separately from other capacities (such as the capacity to move in ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Between Life and Death: Representing Trafficked Persons in Chris
           Abani’s Becoming Abigail and Justin Chadwick’s Stolen
    • Abstract: <p>By Pamela McCallum</p> A young Black girl comes toward you with what seems to be an eerie combination of motion and stillness. She is standing on an airport moving walkway, clutching her travel documents. Adults stride past her, perhaps eager to get to their destination, perhaps impatient at the seemingly endless spaces of terminal corridors. These images are familiar to anyone who has experienced the global network of air travel: from security and border controls to check-in counters and boarding lounges, to cafés, kiosks, and duty-free shops. Then the girl—she cannot be more than nine or ten years old—does something unexpected. She turns into a washroom, enters a cubicle, and flushes her now-torn passport down the toilet. Without ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne McCance</p> From October 1–4, 2014, at the University of Manitoba, Mosaic hosted its fourth international interdisciplinary conference, A matter of lifedeath. Over the months since the conference, I have come to appreciate, increasingly, just how fine an event it was. In part, my appreciation owes to memory—of the sessions I attended and of the many wonderful people I met. Some 108 presenters (50 of them students) representing 13 different countries participated in the conference, along with five featured keynotes speakers: Andrea Carlino, Histoire de la Médecine, Université de Genève; Françoise Dastur, Archives Husserl, École Normale Supérieure de Paris; David Palumbo-Liu, Department of Comparative Literature, Stanford ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Ages of Cruelty: Jacques Derrida, Fethi Benslama, and their Challenges to
    • Abstract: <p>By Elisabeth Weber</p> Cruelty: Philosophy In 1968, Jacques Derrida succinctly named the stakes implied in the neographism which gave his most famous text its name, La différance. This word, he wrote, had “imposed itself” out of a double necessity: the necessity to think “what is most irreducible about our ‘era,’” and the necessity that thought be “maintained in [. . .] a relationship with the structural limits of mastery” (Margins 7). All of Derrida’s conceptual “provocation[s]” (“Provocation” xv) that followed in La différance’s wake obey the same impetus: “Not only is there no kingdom of différance, but différance instigates the subversion of every kingdom. Which makes it obviously threatening and infallibly dreaded by ... <a href="">Read More</a>
