  • The Death of Social Death: Im/possibility of Black Maternity in Angelina
           Weld Grimké's Rachel

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Only in the chamber of death writhed the world's most piteous thing—a childless mother.We begin with a question: can people die if they were never born at all' This question might seem facetious, but it is a question that Angelina Weld Grimké's 1916 play, Rachel, posits to its audience. This question is particularly important with regard to the Afro-pessimist concept of Blackness as social death, which theorizes that Blackness, and therefore social death, precede the body—a positionality always already carried in the mother's womb, an ontological objecthood that erases gender and even the potential for human categorizations. Afro-pessimists argue that this is what is meant during discussions of anti-Blackness as ... Read More

  • A Twitch, a Twitter, an Elastic Shudder in Flight: Kinesthetic Empathy in
           D. H. Lawrence's Bat Poems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In one of his final seminars, The Beast and the Sovereign, Jacques Derrida discusses D. H. Lawrence's poem "Snake"—published, as the bat poems, in the collection Birds, Beasts, and Flowers in 1923—as an exploration of ways in which Emmanuel Levinas's notion of hospitality between human beings can be extended to characterize human‒animal relations, too. Criticizing Levinas's refusal to grant animals a 'face'1 and thus to make humans ethically responsible towards animals, Derrida argues that Lawrence, through his poetic portrayal of his encounter with a snake, stages a powerful scene of human‒animal hospitality and offers insights into how an inter-species ethical relationship may function.Thus, the leading question ...

  • Nicholas Winding Refn's Abject Male: Inhibiting Spectator-Identification
           in Bronson (2008) and Drive (2011)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nicolas Winding Refn once claimed in an interview, "I always set out to make films about women, and I always end up making them about violent men" ("Drive + Q&A"). This may seem a disingenuous claim given his films' central characters. Existential, aggressive, and vengeful men constitute the majority of his protagonists, most notably in the Pusher trilogy (1996, 2004, 2005), Fear X (2003), Bronson (2008), Valhalla Rising (2009), and Drive (2011). Women, on the other hand, are frequently relegated to the margins of his stories. The protagonist's wife is murdered at the beginning of Fear X. In Bronson, the title character's wife and mother appear fleetingly, and Irene (Carey Mulligan) is progressively sidelined in ... Read More

  • Reading's Residue

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For it is humanly certain that most of us remember very little of what we have read. To open almost any book a second time is to be reminded that we had forgotten well-nigh everything that the writer told us. Parting from the narrator and his narrative, we retain only a fading impression; and he, as it were, takes the book away from us and tucks it under his arm.Melbourne, Australia. A man stands before his bookshelves, letting his eyes pass from one title to another. He is testing the titles—trying to find out, in each case, something about the book, and about himself. He is asking, "What does this title evoke' What do I remember about this book'"The man is Gerald Murnane, a writer who is fascinated by what ... Read More

  • Anthropocene Horcruxes: Toward a Theory of Distributed Identities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Since Paul J. Crutzen and Eugene F. Stoermer introduced the terminological invention 'the Anthropocene' back in 2000 as the proposed term for the current geological epoch due to mankind's dominant impact on earth and climate, the scholarly literature on this topic has witnessed a great acceleration of its own. With the launch of the Anthropocene, the natural sciences seem to have re-installed the human (Anthropos) back at the center of Earth history and planetary time, while the humanities and social sciences in turn, has worked so hard to finally debunk human exceptionalism (Colebrook; Dibley). The debate can be grouped into two main approaches concerning 1) the rise and 2) challenge of the Anthropocene.The first ... Read More

  • Dondog and the Post-Exotic After All

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nearly twenty years after SubStance devoted a special issue to the contemporary French writer (and translator) we know as Antoine Volodine, we are thoroughly pleased to be publishing in this issue the opening of Dondog, a novel that Ben Streeter has translated with inspired exactitude and brilliant tonal precision. In English or in French, entering Dondog is not unlike entering any other "post-exotic" text (I will come back to this label shortly). One has to learn how to orient oneself to the ruination of Modernity, within the dysfunctional memories of post-traumatic subjects, between dark humor and luminous despair, in the liminal space between life and death, between humanity and animality, and, in the odd beauty ...

  • Dondog (excerpt)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The tin can rolled across the grimy tiles of the hallway. Dondog barely grazed it, with his left foot, I think, yet there it rolled. The thick cover of darkness made it impossible to know if it was a can of beer or of Coke. Empty, light, the tin cylinder followed its noisy course then stopped, no doubt because it had come up against heavier, grimier trash.The floor slanted. Like everywhere in the City, the masons who added blocks of housing on top of existing ones had little regard for horizontality. They were of the mind that the cement would hold and, what's more, the walls would sink and undo any effort at getting it right. The hallway therefore had the look of a sordid and shabbily dug trench. It reeked of fish ... Read More

  • The Force of Nonviolence: An Ethico-Political Bind by Judith Butler
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Judith Butler's The Force of Nonviolence attempts a creative mapping of the forces of nonviolence. With leading thinkers of the world coming up with creative cartographies of violence, Butler's mapping of nonviolence doesn't stand as an exercise in altering or undermining such cartographies. While these thinkers work with what stands as a categorical understanding of violence while reconstructing it as a destructive force innate to every being in the world, Butler departs from reiterating such understandings. However, with her mapping, Butler doesn't seek to problematize the orientation of such understandings either—an orientation that lies in explaining the incurable fascist leaning of humans. Rather, she releases ... Read More

  • Distributed Cognition in Classical Antiquity ed. by Miranda Anderson,
           Douglas Cairns, and Mark Sprevak (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Patrick Colm Hogan announced in 2002 that "cognitivist methods, topics, and principles have come to dominate what are arguably the most intellectually exciting academic fields today" (1). Today, what dominates those "cognitivist methods, topics, and principles" is likely to be Distributed Cognition. The term was initially addressed by Edwin Hutchin in Cognition in the Wild (1995) and currently has been developed to encompass an intertwined group of theories including embodied cognition, embedded cognition, extended cognition, and enactive cognition (together also called "4E Cognition"). The distributed views of cognition generally hold that mind is "spread out over the brain, the non-neural body and an environment ... Read More

  • Documents of Utopia: The Politics of Experimental Ethnography by Paolo
           Magagnoli (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Documents of Utopia: The Politics of Experimental Ethnography, Paolo Magagnoli has undertaken the complex task of linking different aesthetic contexts through a study of experimental documentary audiovisual projects, treating the work of contemporary artists such as Hito Steyerl, Joachim Koester, Tacite Dean, Matthew Buckingham, Zoe Leonard, Jean-Luc Moulène, Ilye and Emilie Kabakov, Jon Thompson and Alison Craighead, and Aniri Sala. In what follows, I wish to develop three critical arguments that I hope will illuminate the book's central claims. Magagnoli's main goal is to understand how these artists' utopian vision has undergone a temporal shift that is more preoccupied with remembering the past than ... Read More
