  • Retro II: To Us To-Day

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Slowly but surely, we have been working on this issue since Summer 2020, which inevitably doubled. The Covid-19 pandemic remains challenging on all levels, and while we hope that by the time the issue appears in print the situation will have become at least more manageable, our hopes remain vulnerably our own and what we need, in (re)turn, in the face of this kind of epochal crisis and ecological disaster on a planetary scale, is a lucid humility, another form and phase of re-remembering: who we were and could become.This double issue, “To Us To-Day” as we “Return Forward (Retro I),” opens with Sara Ishi’s re(tro)articulation of Gloria Anzaldúa’s paradigm-shifting, artful insights into nonhuman subjectivity. ...

  • Applying Gloria Anzaldúa’s Creative Works to Speculative Realism:
           Bridging Jane Bennett’s Vital Materialism and Graham Harman’s
           Object-Oriented Philosophy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a 1983 interview with Christine Weiland, Gloria Anzaldúa posited that human and nonhuman connectivity exists outside hierarchical arrangements. She states: “Because we’re all from the same speck. We’re just different specks from this big fire. You know what I mean' We just have different forms. Some of us are black, some of us are white, some are short, some are tall. Some of us are in vegetable flesh, some of us are in animal flesh” (2000, 119). Like a mosaic composed of distinct tesserae yet forming a whole image, all forms of being make up a cosmic collective. Anzaldúa elaborates on this concept, further acknowledging the differences between various manifestations of these “specks” or “flesh”: “It’s a matter ... Read More

  • Retro-Sex, Anti-Trans Legislation, and the Colonial/Modern Gender System

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: But if I am right about the coloniality of gender . . . sex has to stand alone.In May of 2016, just months after the passage of North Carolina’s House Bill 2, the punk band Against Me!— led by trans woman Laura Jane Grace— played a sold-out show in Durham, North Carolina. Rather than canceling the performance, as many other musicians did, the band promised to create an event around the protests. Before the show started, Grace pulled out a lighter and burned her birth certificate in front of the crowd. “Goodbye, gender,” she said as it burned (Monroe 2016).North Carolina’s HB2 is widely cited as one instance of a larger trend in legislation often referred to as the “bathroom bills.” Initiated by a number of state ...

  • Revisiting Monique Wittig’s Lesbian for a Feminist Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ahmed’s statement provides us with an opportunity to revisit and investigate Wittig’s work in the face of obscurity and the justified criticisms she faced (which I address below), and also offer insight into why an author like Ahmed might seek to reclaim Wittig’s work. Specifically, given Ahmed’s commitment to the works of feminists of color (16), and her rejection of trans-exclusionary forms of feminism (269), we might ask what significance Wittig’s work might have for feminist theory today. While being attentive to the problematic aspects of Wittig’s work, I argue that Wittig develops various concepts and tools in her literary work that hold the potential to exceed the limits of her philosophical writing. It is ... Read More

      Abstract: Cristina told me: “Crime doesn’t pay. Does literature pay'” Absolutely not. Writing is a way of failing. Cristina was surprised. She asked me then why did I write. And I didn’t know what to say.“To the egg I dedicate the Chinese nation” (Lispector 1964, 82). I am consumed by this sentence. This sentence keeps me awake at night: What does it mean' What does it mean to dedicate an entire nation—the Chinese nation, no less—to a single egg' What color is this egg' And what does it even mean to utter the word “egg”' In Portuguese, the word “egg” (ovo) already looks like a chicken staring you straight in the eye. Is this the answer to the riddle' This sentence consumes me.“To the egg I dedicate the Chinese nation.” Other ... Read More

  • The Retrospective Glance in Soyoung Kim’s Exile Trilogy

      Abstract: What does it mean to represent while casting a retrospective glance on sites and people marked by historical forgetting' What does it mean to represent a historical subject not consecrated by national or transnational historiographies' Representation involves “taking the place of ” as a literal form of “standing for,” as Paul Ricoeur (2004, 279) writes, and attempts at historical representation have, perhaps unsurprisingly, triggered controversy and accusations of displacement, abuse, or erasure of the “other.” One of the most significant debates related to representation has occupied the field of memory studies and addresses the catastrophe of the Holocaust and the particular challenges it imposed, in particular ...

  • Representation of Diasporic Memories and Possibilities for Post–Cold War
           History: On the Documentaries of Soyoung

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Soyoung Kim’s documentary film Goodbye My Love, North Korea: Red Youth (2017) begins as follows: two persons, barely visible in silhouette, are standing on a wild plain in the sunset; one is looking into the camera lens and filming, while the other is on guard next to him. Taken with wide angles and extreme long shots, this first scene seems to suggest that the upcoming story in the film is set to capture these people as a small dot in a distant landscape of history. This introduction recalls the painting used by Cold War historian John Lewis Gaddis as a metaphor for a sense of history, Caspar David Friedrich’s “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” (1818). According to Gaddis, the painting shows dominance over the ... Read More

  • Analysis of Dasein in Kim Alex’s Story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is a story of a person, Kim Alex, a descendent of one of the Koryo (Central Asian Korean) families who were moved to Central Asia back in the late 1930s, who is the storyteller of the movie Kim Alex’s Place: Ansan-Tashkent (2014) by Kim Jeong. The movie begins on the road back then on the way to Central Asia; this road leads to the frosty road in Central Asia and to the road to the East Sea in Korea. The story begins with a nonchalant glance at Kim Alex who is sitting in a bus on the way to the East Sea in Korea with other Koryo people. A stranger, Kim Alex appears for the first time.It is about a person, a stranger. I go with him as the movie unfolds, even though I don’t know him yet. As the movie follows this ... Read More

  • The Poetics of Survival in Soyoung Kim’s Exile Trilogy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Disclaimer: Although the core of this essay will be conventionally academic/ critical, the framing of the piece is not. I have known Soyoung Kim since 2003 and have worked closely with her as a colleague and friend for many years, in both teaching and conference and events work, and have participated in her filmmaking. It has been an extraordinary experience. I was with the production team in Kyrgyzstan for a week during the filming there and was present for the interviews with the ninety-two-year-old survivor of the mass deportation, Chegay Yevgenia and her husband. I will never forget that, and I cannot bracket my “being there” from this response to the exile.1 One of the gifts the trilogy (and, indeed, all of ... Read More

  • Soyoung Kim’s Exile Trilogy: Retro toward an Affective Archive

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I first encountered the Exile Trilogy by Jeong Kim—the alias of Soyoung Kim—at the 2014 DMZ International Documentary Film Festival in the satellite city of Goyang, northwest of Seoul, where the audience saw a different edition of Heart of Snow, Heart of Blood (2014), screened under the title “Kim Alex’s Place: Ansan-Tashkent” (2014). Prior to this almost unexpected cinematic encounter, honestly, I knew hardly anything about the existence of ethnic Koreans in Central Asia (formerly the USSR)—who prefer to call themselves “Koryo Saram”—and possessed no knowledge of their diasporic trajectories, histories, and transformation in the post-Soviet, post–Cold War periods (G. Kim 1993, 47). As well articulated by ... Read More

  • Moments of Meaning-Making II: D–F

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Meaning is pervasive. The world around us habitually means something, but we don’t realize, question, or are even aware of it. We live by semantic routine. The unthinking attribution of meaning to what we see, hear, smell, and feel around us is necessary; it saves us from constant chaos, concern, confusion. Sometimes, however, the routine makes us miss moments of delightful wonder. Not-understanding can be an exciting experience. Seeing what is perhaps so routine that it is not visible can become a moment of meaning-making when it connects to you, when you are its “second person.” Second-personhood, combined with the multisensorial nature of all perceptions, compels a questioning of all certainty about meaning. ...

      Abstract: The spiraling back, the turn of the screw to take it out, to look at what happened, to break apart the cover, to disclose in reverse, recalibrate and recapitulate, to find points of composure and recognition—to view the news as what happened already but left the stain of reportage and evidence of fraud and failure. . . . The time we live in and the way we make use of our “screws” to construct a new stage to play on.All this is wobbly and dangerous because now we look at a group of kids as a throwback to another weather and drama. Five Black guys on a corner are spotted as fugitive slaves. Runaways from history, no matter what they are doing today. We have seen them. Same for women, parading around cities and ... Read More

      Abstract: Inaugurated in December 2011 in conjunction with the International Conference on Chinese Women and Visual Representation in Shanghai, WOMEN我們 (a Mandarin homophone meaning both “women” and “we”) was the first exhibition curated to address feminism and genderqueer equality in China at the time. WOMEN我們 has traveled to San Francisco and Miami in 2012, and is now an ongoing series at the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco (CCC), which explores feminism, gender diversity, and sexual equality.Visibility, Authority, and Possibility are the three threads that weave the foundation for WOMEN我們 (2012). The exhibition focuses on the exploration and expression in visual culture. Instead of emphasizing the gender of the ... Read More

  • Queer Chinese Feminist Archipelagos: Shanghai, San Francisco, and Miami

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Through the lens of Martinican-born poet and theoretician Édouard Glissant’s writings on the “archipelago,” I explore the exhibition WOMEN我們 , which toured from Shanghai (2011) to San Francisco (2012) and Miami Beach (2013). The archipelago refers to a specific geological formation: a chain or series of islands scattered in a body of water with no clear center. Much of Glissant’s thinking about creolization is linked to the physical geography of the Caribbean archipelago. Creolization refers to the incessant flux of entanglements that Glissant believed could create a broader set of sociocultural processes, not only in the Caribbean but also in tout-monde, or “all the world.” Of interest to him was the idea that ...

      Abstract: “Heirlooms,” the inaugural exhibition at the art and community space Loong Mah (210 Canal Street in New York City), featured a collection of family treasures from thirty-two artists, writers, curators, musicians, and individuals connected to Chinatown and the Asian American community. The conceit of the show was almost so simple to be obvious and yet, to our knowledge, there hasn’t been an exhibition like this before. Entering into a new environment, the heirlooms are simultaneously nurtured and reinterpreted, and they acquire a new valence and meaning.The show’s heartfelt rigor and timeliness (mid-pandemic, when so many families have been separated, and when Asians and Asian Americans have been subjected to ...

  • Wombs Unlinked: Trans-Saharan Afterlives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent trans-Saharan migrations have powerfully reawakened older imaginaries of travel and trade across the Sahara. Several years ago I set out to study the history of these imaginaries as a step toward understanding contemporary racial dynamics in North Africa. Little did I know how structuring trans-Saharan slavery had been for Moroccan society, or how my own family was implicated in it. In this essay I attempt to articulate the web of questions that arose from that process. Part of the piece was initially written in 2017 as an email letter to NourbeSe Philip, with whom I was then engaged in a collaborative writing project around the histories and afterlives of trans-Saharan slavery. The version below first ... Read More

      Abstract: For forty-seven years, every January 1st a gathering of poets and their accomplices have greeted the passage of the year with a daylong ritual of raucous, tender, wild experiments and offerings. The New Year’s Day Marathon was originally conceived as a fundraiser for The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s, a touchstone of downtown culture in New York City, whose expeditions in language and performance have radiated globally across many generations of avant-garde art. The idea: a cast of radical poets, music-makers, dancers, performers, and artists would each share work a few minutes in length, unrolling over the day in a kind of unruly and exuberant fever dream, with the ticket revenue from this public performance ...

  • Kant’s Nonideal Theory of Politics by Dilek Huseyinzadegan (review)

      Abstract: The opening pages of Kant’s Nonideal Theory of Politics present the controversial central claim of the book head on: Kant’s teleological arguments in political philosophy, which have a contentious reputation in Kant circles, not only should not be omitted from scholarly inquiry but form an essential part of what Dilek Huseyinzadegan calls “Kant’s nonideal theory,” or the second prong of his dual-focused political philosophy. Nonideal theory, a term Huseyinzadegan borrows from Charles Mills, is anchored, on her argument, in the regulative principle of Zweckmässigkeit, or purposiveness, and has as its purview the contingent variables of politics such as history, culture, and geography. Accordingly, she names ... Read More

           by Sarah Tyson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In where are the women' Why Expanding the Archive Makes Philosophy Better, Sarah Tyson considers how practices of exclusion direct and limit philosophical thinking. Tyson analyzes the problem that women’s work is largely absent from established European and Anglophone philosophical canons and asks how it can be reclaimed for philosophy. Those of us with a background in feminism can easily predict that the lack of women in philosophy is not universally recognized as a problem. Tyson, however, argues that the exclusion of women from the history of philosophy is in fact a complex philosophical issue encompassing the logics of authority used to construct and maintain disciplines, the ways that history is engaged within ...

           and: Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure by Eli Clare, and:
           Authoring Autism: On Rhetoric and Neurological Queerness by M. Remi

      Abstract: What connects the works of Matt Brim, Eli Clare, and M. Remi Yergeau is their individuated efforts to confront and grapple with the ways in which thought is implicated by the material and bodymind conditions of its imaginings. Collectively they illustrate the rhizomatic future of the discipline of queer theory/studies. Although they each have queerness as their primary conceptual interlocutor, Clare’s Brilliant Imperfection, Yergeau’s Authoring Autism, and Brim’s Poor Queer Studies, initially seem to be an ill-fitting triangulation. There is a sense that one of them does not belong with the other two, and which one that is changes depending on what criteria one embraces. What ultimately bridges these three works ... Read More

      Abstract: What connects Heyes’s, Guru and Sarukkai’s, and Burke’s works is their shared investment in the everyday phenomenological experience of the self as the possible site and means of liberatory transformation. Each of the three titles foregrounds different dimensions that constitute the experience of gender, caste, and race: their discursive and trans-discursive nature, their constitutive sociality, and their temporal determinateness, respectively. These dimensions are the prisms through which they understand experience and posit possibilities of the self ’s transformation.In her Anaesthetics of Existence: Essays on Experience at the Edge (2020), Cressida Heyes focuses on everyday experiences that exceed the control ...
