  • Abolish the University: Build the Sanctuary Campus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The pursuit of knowing was freedom to me.We must work and insist and repeat and invent and never give up.As a longtime professor of humanities who has taught in five universities in two countries, it may seem strange to call for the abolition of the very institution that has given and continues to give so very much to me. But that is precisely what I am saying. Why' Simply put, universities are facing unprecedented levels of agonized distress: anxious and dispirited students, precariously employed faculty, and overworked and underresourced staff all make for a disillusioned and disillusioning mess. Manifestly unjust structures of oppression that thrum through Canadian society also mar campus life. As far as ... Read More

  • The Survival of Religion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "A major problem in modern thought is … the survival of religion" (Firth 1996, 1).The question of survival has woven itself into the rhetorical fabric of debates surrounding the history of secularization and has, in turn, become an almost inescapable issue for those concerned with the meaning and end of religion. Scholars ask: Does religion survive' Must it survive' If so, how' By what contingencies, strategies, or duplicities has the survival of religion been made possible' If not, where has religion gone' Why has it failed to survive' And is it coming back' "In the modern era can religious concepts survive or are they irrevocably lost'" (Gordon 2020, 2).According to Marcel Gauchet's well-known argument, we are ...

  • Byung-Chul Han's Negativity; or, Restoring Beauty and Rage in Excessively
           Positive Times

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Smart power with a liberal, friendly appearance—power that stimulates and seduces—is more compelling than power that imposes, threatens and decrees. Its signal and seal is the Like button. Now, people subjugate themselves to domination by consuming and communicating—and they click Like all the while."Are you a happy person'" ask Niels Boeing and Andreas Lebert in an interview with the South Korean-born German philosopher Byung-Chul Han. The question risks dismissing Han's insightful critique of neoliberalism as little more than the scribblings of a maladjusted philosopher. Han replies, "I don't ask that question." When the interviewers inquire about what brings him joy, his immediate response is: "I can't enjoy the ... Read More

  • Naruto's Right to Singularity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2018, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Naruto, a crested macaque, did not have statutory standing to sue for copyright infringement regarding photographs he took (the "monkey selfies") because the Copyright Act does not explicitly grant such standing to animals. While nominally a "defeat" for Naruto, the case is remarkable for how much it conceded to him and animals generally, both in the logic of its decision and in secondary comments incidental to the decision. For starters, the court found Naruto to be the owner of his photos and to have suffered economic damage in not profiting from them,1 and it reaffirmed (albeit begrudgingly) the precedent of Cetacean Community v. Bush, which stated that ... Read More

  • From Ratiocination to Globalization: Poe, Borges, BolaƱo, and the Complot
           of the Novela Negra Neoliberal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Detective fiction became a popular genre throughout the Anglophone world in the nineteenth century, yet it was slow to emerge in the Latin American context. When it did, the traditional triad of crime-criminal-detective was adopted by authors across the region, not as mere genre fiction but more often as a critical literary intervention deployed to critique the Latin American nation-state. The present study traces the development of detective fiction in the region, from Borges's ratiocinative "narrativa de enigma" to the more critical modalities—novela policial, neopoliciaco, and novela negra—which have been wielded by authors like Ricardo Piglia and Paco Ignacio Taibo II in the late twentieth and early ...

  • Looking at Law: Refusals of Settler Colonial Politics in Nadia Myre's
           Indian Act

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A row of red and white rectangles, framed in black, extends horizontally around the perimeter of a white gallery room, hung with just a few inches between them. Behind glass, each frame holds a work of red and white beads, stitched onto white paper, the paper sutured to black broadcloth. These 56 hand-beaded pages are Nadia Myre's confrontation with state legislation: Indian Act (2000–2003). A visual artist from Quebec and an Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinaabeg First Nation, Myre lives and works in Montreal. Much of her art practice reflects on and intervenes in material traces of ongoing encounters between Indigenous nations and agents, practices, and logics of settler colonialism. With Indian Act ...

  • An Ethical Perspective on the Historical Development of Humanity in
           Patočka

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: First, couldn't one reproach Patočka for marginalizing the condition of plurality, which is so essential for the ethical dimension of humanity' In effect, by placing excessive value on the sacrifice of and devotion to the other, Patočka could be led to devaluing the necessity for everyone to affirm him- or herself just as he or she is with others and to overemphasizing self-forgetting for the benefit of others. Is the course of history, in which subjectivities can stand up for themselves, compatible with a strictly moral aspiration of humanity'Second, one may also wonder whether the moral valorization of sacrifice is sufficient for remedying the potentially violent conflicts that characterize human existence. Is it ... Read More

  • The Materiality of the Letter: Andrei Bely, Inscription, and the Escape of
           Figural Futures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What remains from writing—and what are its effects' As we stride headlong into an era of ubiquitous—but utterly ephemeral—writing on screens, it is worth asking what influence this saturation of the letter has on how we imagine the world (and its construction, history, and imagined disappearance). Marxist and deconstructive philosophies have often focused on the power writing has to shape the world, not only (strictly) ideologically but as its meanings disperse throughout ideology and emerge again in how we make sense of material objects. These approaches allow us to note the significant role cultural memory plays in determining what, and how, things take on unconscious or assumed meanings beyond their immediate ... Read More

  • Fungi Umwelt

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Fungi has awakened an ecological awareness of the fundamental role organisms have in our ecosystem.I walk in the forest every day in every season. There is so much to learn, it humbles me to think I'll never possibly comprehend how nature and the cosmos have an interconnectivity surrounding me from under my feet to the air I am breathing to the planets in the sky. It's a wonder that fungi, dead logs, leaves, plants, and trees have so much to do with our ability to live on this planet and even more so to teach us. I want to begin my essay by talking about my experience with mushrooms, ecology, and the relationship to soil while also focusing on how they are imperative to the health of humans and the condition of the ...

  • Trees, Fungi, and Humans: A Transspecies Story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Years ago, I had a terrifying nightmare. I was back in Konstanz, my German hometown, walking in a beautiful forest adjacent to the lake. Suddenly, the giant trees surrounding me ripped their roots out of the earth and began to run after me, chasing me all the way out of the forest. I ran and ran, fearing for my life. Later I learned that my dream had its roots in an ancient phobia of trees called dendrophobia, a primordial terror linked to a sense that trees are more alive than we think. For those suffering from dendrophobia, trees have a paradoxical mobility that enables them to use their roots to grab humans or even kill them by willfully dropping their branches on them. Dendrophobia, an officially recognized ... Read More

The journal’s primary emphasis is on the opening up of the possibilitiesfor a future Americas that does not amount to a mere reiterationof its past.
