  • Palestinian Postmemory: Melancholia and the Absent Subject in Larissa
           Sansour's In Vitro, Saleem Haddad's "Song of the Birds," and Adania
           Shibli's Touch

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The dystopic film In Vitro, by Palestinian artist and filmmaker Larissa Sansour, takes place in a bunker many years after an eco-disaster in the West Bank city of Bethlehem. The protagonist, Alia, is a clone that was created after the traumatic event but has been implanted with the memories of those who lived through it. Consequently, she bears the effects of the trauma as a transgenerational transmission: "I was raised on nostalgia … My own memories replaced by those of others … The pain these stories cause are two-fold because the loss I feel was never mine." Calling her existence a "congenital exile," she argues that constant recounting of traumatic history reduces it to "symbols and iconography," such that her ... Read More

           Violence: Koffi Kwahulé's Les Recluses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To say that Koffi Kwahulé's 2010 play Les Recluses is unconventional would be a dramatic understatement. Rather than having followed even the most avant-gardist theatrical modes of the twentieth century as seen in the post-Brechtian esthetics of Antonin Artaud's Theatre of Cruelty, Martin Esslin's Theatre of the Absurd, or Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed, Kwahulé's esthetics inherently rely on a multimodal approach to representation that blends cinematographic and theatrical modes of artistic expression. More specifically, Les Recluses relies on a juxtaposition of ten vignettes that are alternatively composed of six live theatrical performances and four prerecorded audiovisual recordings—hereunto my ...

  • Testimony, Aporia, and the Holocaust in the Poems of Dan Pagis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It was by seeking, by probing silence that I began to discover the perils and power of the Word.This essay explores the aporia of testimony in a number of Holocaust poems by the Israeli poet Dan Pagis.1 These poems are a form of heightened articulation of a version of empty presence and, for that reason, an accomplished "disarticulation," showing a "disjunctive gap" between historical narrative and reference, according to Perry Yakov.2 The reasons for the empty presence are the discursive conditions as well as effects of dispossession of home in a supposed homeland, death and the disenfranchisement of the Jews as the nonhuman others, and their ethical imperative to testify against the Holocaust crimes when the ...

  • Trauma and Colonial Specters in Assia Djebar's Fiction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Assia Djebar's L'Amour, la fantasia (1985) opens with an autobiographical childhood memory: "Fillette arabe allant pour la première fois à l'école, un matin d'automne, main dans la main du père." (An Arab girl going for the first time to school, one autumn morning, hand in hand with her father.)1 When taken in the colonial context of the author's childhood, this opening line suggests underlying traumatic and "orientalist" connotations: a young "Arab" girl removed from the household by her assimilated schoolmaster father and taken to a colonial school, which would uproot her from the language of her mother and the culture of her ancestors. In other words, the "hand in hand" and (colonial) "school" images of beauty ... Read More

  • A Russian Poetics of Trauma: Encounters with Death and the Literary
           Reclamation of the Individual

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent Russian literary works illustrate a keen understanding of lingering transgenerational traumas experienced both collectively and individually. Twentieth-century totalitarian regimes' terror tactics and attempts to destroy individual personality created cultures of trauma that left their traces across generations through practices of dominance and mistrust reiterated in private lives. These tactics also fomented lingering internalized and symbolized residues of death anxiety. Soviet Russia is a case in point. Even as totalism receded in the post-Soviet era, premature death has persisted, particularly among men, and it has brought long-term psychological and cognitive stases that have prevented social and ...
