  • Editorial Statement
    • Abstract: Cultural Critique provides a forum for creative and provocative scholarship in the theoretical humanities and humanistic social sciences. Transnational in scope and transdisciplinary in orientation, the journal strives to spark and galvanize intellectual debates as well as to attract and foster critical investigations regarding any aspect of culture as it expresses itself in words, images, and sounds, across both time and space. The journal is especially keen to support scholarship that engages the ways in which cultural production, cultural practices, and cultural forms constitute and manifest the nexus between the aesthetic, the psychic, the economic, the political, and the ethical intended in their widest ...

  • Jokes and the Performative in Austin And Derrida; or, The Truth is a
           Joke'
    • Abstract: There are disadvantages in being excessively solemn.Through comedy then.The genealogy of this essay on jokes comes not so much out of a happy, laughter-filled context, but in the context of a death—most specifically, Jacques Derrida's death. I was asked to write something about Derrida's legacy on the tenth anniversary of his death in 2014, and the initial impetus on such an occasion is to follow out a trajectory that one learns from Derrida himself: when asked to mourn someone in print, immediately double down on the question by looking at how the topic of mourning is treated in his or her texts. And that could indeed present a rich itinerary: few people have engaged the work of mourning as centrally as ... Read More

  • Indigeneity, Apartheid, Palestine: On the Transit of Political Metaphors
    • Abstract: Israel is an apartheid state. Israel is a settler-colonial state. Are these statements the same' Are they compatible' What is effaced, displaced, and/or forgotten in the conceptual, rhetorical, and institutional movement between these formulations' These two political metaphors—apartheid and settler colonialism—suggest different frames of reference and arise out of their own scholarly conversations and political contestations. Describing them as "metaphors," though, should not indicate their distinction from some "real" or "literal" state of affairs.1 The initial construction of the Israeli state, legal processes implemented over the course of its history, and current policy in the Occupied Territories and within ...

  • The Inaudible Nation: Music and Sensory Perception in Postapartheid South
           Africa
    • Abstract: In both the social sciences and humanities, it is something of a truism that nations are not only audible but downright loquacious. From a basic phenomenological perspective, this position seems accurate: from the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games to State of the Nation addresses and seasonal national music festivals held in many countries around the world, the ubiquity of national or nationalist sound is a contemporary commonplace, or even a cliché. In addition to the proclamation that nations resound, a number of detailed studies in history, anthropology, sociology, and ethnomusicology have traced the mechanisms by which states employ sonic and musical material. At the risk of oversimplification, the most ... Read More

  • Magical Modernity: The Fallacy of Affect in Ritwik Ghatak's Ajantrik
    • Abstract: An innocent child, completely oblivious of the world around him, plays with a car horn that was left behind after the actual automobile has been decimated and taken away. As the child blows on the horn, the familiar shrill sound startles the car's owner who is devastated after the demise of his beloved possession. Bemused by the child's juvenile unawareness, he comes out of his pensive trance and smiles at the child. This scene of infantile play marks the end of Ritwik Ghatak's Ajantrik (The Pathetic Fallacy, 1957),1 which is a tale of a lonely taxi driver Bimal's obsession for his dilapidated car, Jagaddal (literally meaning "immovable"). A film of painful and futile attachment ends with an innocent smile.The ... Read More

    • Abstract: How does a study of national culture refrain from committing to the nation as a natural or given form of political and social life' From the standpoint of a critical method, how might the cultural and textual effects of nationhood be seen not through the acceptance or refusal of nations but rather through learning to read the nation as a difficult and pervasive figure' What is the possibility or impossibility of postnational literary and cultural analysis in a world that can no longer accept the nation as a privileged prior object but that cannot afford to ignore the nation's concrete and ideological force' In responding to these questions, I would test a reading strategy derived from the modernist literary and ...

  • Dating Markets and Love Stories: Freedom and Fairness in the Pursuit of
           Intimacy and Love
    • Abstract: Do you know that saying of Saint Augustine: "The measure of love is to love without measure"'Must love be reinvented today' And is love in the process of reinvention, regardless' When the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy wrote his extraordinary love treatise—"Shattered Love"—in 1986, he suggested that, though love is often forgotten by philosophy, "one does not forget to return to it after a certain period" (83). For Nancy, his time of writing demanded a return to thinking love because the very concept, or affect, was undergoing radical change: "No longer the dominant theme of poetry," love was "threatened with falling into sexology, marriage counseling, newsstand novels, and moral edification all at once" (83 ...

  • Future Hospitalities
    • Abstract: Despite the fact that aphorisms about the relation between food and subjectivity are commonly rehearsed to the point of being cliché, there remains much to be said about how eating practices always anticipate unpredictable futures. Western thought has long signaled the constitutive relation between being and alimentarity. Louis Brillat-Savarin, the early nineteenth-century French gastronome, famously declared: "Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es" (Tell me what you eat, I will tell you what you are). Brillat-Savarin's formulation of food as that which reveals being as such is echoed by Ludwig Andreas von Feuerbach's commonly uttered maxim: "Der Mensch ist was er isst" (Man is what he eats). Today ... Read More

  • Sex and Negativity; or, What Queer Theory Has for You
    • Abstract: For readers uninitiated into the critical concerns of queer theory, the prospect of talking about sex might herald a thrilling departure from the conventions of everyday sexual and gender norms. Weird, wild, naughty, depraved: the adjectives proliferate against a background drawn in muted tones (straight, cis, domestic, uneventful, routine). But the stories that queer theory has learned to tell about the sex we might call its own are not always perversely pleasing. The showstopping example is Leo Bersani's opening line in "Is the Rectum a Grave'": "There is a big secret about sex: most people don't like it" (1987, 197). To elaborate what is now his most famous sentence, Bersani offers the word "aversion" to ... Read More

  • Why Does the West Need to Save Muslim Women'
    • Abstract: The discursive production of Muslim women as oppressed, backward, silenced, and invisible (secluded/veiled) has a long history in the popular imagination of and writings on Islamic societies in both the geographic West and elsewhere (Alloula; Khanna; Bullock; Hoodfar; Brenner). The dubious distinction of symbolizing the inferiority of entire cultures does not belong to Muslim women alone; the trope of "the subjugated native woman" has underwritten self-justifications of colonial discourses in much of the world. For instance, Dutch colonial accounts frequently portrayed Javanese women as "the silent suffering victims of barbaric cultures in need of European progress, enlightenment, and technology" (Gouda, 19), while ...

  • Announcing the End of the Film Era
    • Abstract: The titles of a great many—too many—recent film books are alarming, literally alarming. It was something of a shock when, two summers ago, I opened a package I received in the mail to discover a book with a dark cover blaring the following words in large type: The End of Cinema' The marketing offices at publishing houses (larger I suspect than their editorial corps) urge authors in every field to deliver headlines like this for titles, a strategy that has helped books on, say, ecology or cosmology take off in sales (like The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, or Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries). I confess to having contributed my loud voice to this trend, when, egged on by my own press's ... Read More

  • Accounting for Difference
    • Abstract: Is the financial crisis behind us' A host of politicians, economists, and statisticians would have us believe that, indeed, we are in "recovery." Never mind that the economic and racial disparity that caused the crisis has grown exponentially since 2008. We might say that recovery of the financial industry looks less like an addict who has finally come to terms with the toxic effects of his addiction than a boxer who, after near-defeat, revives himself before the ninth bell and continues swinging. As we transition from the moment of asking, what is the crisis' to wondering, what was the crisis' we might feel a strange sense of loss—regret for having missed opportunities for real change and nostalgia for the idea ...
