  • Yet Another One. . .

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We finalized the first issue of The Turn in 2020, a year of global upheavals: the year Covid-19 became a pandemic, but also the year in which the people came out in force, in person or virtually, both in the U.S. and globally, to support the Black Lives Matter movement after the death of George Floyd. Though not unprecedented, these two connected turns were, as my colleague Carlos Rojas writes in the introduction to the first issue of The Turn, momentous events.1 As turning points, they marked moments of change, even as their impact depended on a cumulation of factors and events, much as they themselves would trigger repetitions and lingering aftereffects.As I am writing this introduction, the entry point for the ...

  • Gender Before the Gender Turn

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The social history of our era cannot be written without naming gender, gender role, and gender identity as organizing principles.When we speak of the “gender turn” in feminist thought, we describe a shift in analysis from a focus on women within a male-dominated system of power to a concept that locates power in the construction of gender itself.2 Feminists think of gender as “a socially imposed division of the sexes,”3 to use Gayle Rubin’s early theorization of this gender concept. This use of gender intensified into gender’s second turn, generally dated to the 1980s, when preeminent feminist theory moved away from understanding women as the defining object for feminist scholarship to the construction of gender.4 ...

  • The Ethical Turn in Cinema

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this essay I offer some considerations about the move of cinema studies, following other literary and critical fields, towards disciplinary self-questioning through a more explicit engagement with ethics.1 I focus my examination on the availability of ethics to productively redefine ideological critique as what so powerfully shaped filmic analysis in the late 1960s and 70s. In their seminal 1969 Cahiers du Cinema editorial, Jean-Luc Comolli and Paul Narboni abjure the notion of film as what neutrally translates reality into images, insisting that “‘reality’ is nothing but an expression of the prevailing ideology.”2 Contending therefore that “every film is political, inasmuch as it is determined by the ideology ...

  • The Plastic Turn

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What kind of plastic does this essay turn to' What is the “plastic turn” that it declares' As part of our petromodern turn, plastic fixes and unfixes our energy regimes that expose us to certain conditions of materiality, sociocultural conditions of consumption, the politics of garbology, commodification and desire, and a globalization of mere need and disposibility. As extraction and extrusion, material acculturation and submission, egalitarian utility and waste-power, plastic—as oil-detritus—speaks in the language of profit and loss. It indexes a petrochemical living, a zone of survival, sacrifice, and extinction. Within certain eco-techno-cultural systems, plastic molds material into expression, and thus ... Read More

  • Turning the Tables: Derrida, China, and the Asia Turn

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One may recall that China and the tables began to dance when the rest of the world appeared to be standing still—pour encourager les autres.In the main body of Jacques Derrida’s Specters of Marx, the word “China” appears only once. In a discussion of the famous passage from Capital in which Karl Marx describes how, when viewed as a commodity, a wooden table may come to assume anthropomorphic qualities “far more wonderful than ‘table-turning’ ever was,” Derrida notes that Marx added a cryptic footnote in which he observes how “China and the tables began to dance when the rest of the world appeared to be standing still.”1 Derrida then explains, in a footnote of his own, that Marx’s editors interpret this remark as an ...

  • The Contortions and Convolutions of the “Speculative Turn”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One notable development in the theoretical humanities in the past few years has been the rapid rise of the “speculative turn,” a counterpoint to the supposed antirealism of continental philosophy and critical theory. Rather than recounting the tortuous trajectories of this loosely defined and heterogeneous movement, I will focus in this article on the theory of object-oriented ontology (OOO), as initially formulated by Graham Harman, insofar as it represents the most forthright and indefatigable rejection of Immanuel Kant’s “Copernican Revolution” (the archetypical and perhaps most momentous of all philosophical “turns”), striving to broaden the scope of philosophical enquiry beyond the supposedly blinkered outlook ...

  • Surface Turns

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the 1970s and 1980s, calls for attention to the surface thickened in theoretical thought. Surface phenomena were being turned into the grounds and foundations for conceptual work: from Möbius strips to simulacra, from skin to screens, from folds to planes. To invoke depth was becoming a suspect maneuver reeking too much of metaphysical trappings and a mistaken belief in core identities. In fact, by the 1970s and 1980s, to rely on depth seemed to have become squarely out of date.The year 1980 saw the publication of a couple of important texts for theorizing surfaces and for gauging the importance of a turn to the surface: Michel de Certeau’s The Practice of Everyday Life (L’invention du quotidien) as well as ...

  • A Turn to the Many: Ai Weiwei

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How should art react to a crisis' For Ai Weiwei (b. 1957), the answer would be to aim for the impossible—to document, evoke, and help, in real time and against all odds. When politicians and experts still appeared stunned by the global surge of COVID-19, Ai already sprang into action in multipronged ways. On May 21, 2020, he launched the Ai Weiwei MASK project in collaboration with eBay, selling disposable masks that were silk-screened with some of his most iconic images (see issue cover). Within a month, he sold thousands of masks and raised over 1.4 million dollars for COVID- and human-rights-related charities. By August 21, he released Coronation (2020), the first documentary on the initial outbreak in Wuhan ... Read More
