  • Repurposing the Ruin to Remember: Multimodal Rhetoric and Cultural Memory
           in the Post–Soviet Memorial Museum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Marcia Clare Allison
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      The memory turn in the humanities has been crucial for understanding the rhetorical work memorials and museums perform for the state. However, the postmodern development of the hybrid memorial museum remains underexamined as a unique rhetorical artifact. In this article, I combine postmodern museology with material rhetoric and multimodal argumentation to critique the particular trend of repurposing historical buildings from the commemorated moment in question into the physical memorial museum itself. Building from previous literature exploring juxtaposition as argument, I contend that repurposing ruins into memorial museums uses authenticity to create a kisceral rhetorical juxtaposition between the ruin’s former and current life as an argumentative strategy. Such work thus makes the repurposed memorial museum both a container and rhetorical object of memory. To exemplify this, I perform a rhetorical critique in situ of the Memorial Museum of the German Division of Marienborn (Gedenkstätte Deutsche Teilung Marienborn [GDTM]): a former East German border crossing. I show how GDTM leverages its architectural authenticity through this Janus-faced juxtaposition to curate cultural memory discourses regarding German unification. In conclusion, I posit how further post-Soviet infrastructures and other repurposed memorial museums offer a critical rhetoric that in our political climes is never more needed.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Direct[Message], a community-based research (CBR) project developing a digital platform supporting older adults engagement with the arts through digital technologies, faced the challenge of redesigning the research protocol after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March 2020. The redesign, which brought challenges and opportunities, allowed the research team to embed the project with process goals considering older adults’ experiences of social isolation, and exploring how these experiences might be mitigated by greater access to the arts through technology. This article explores the redesign process undertaken by the Direct[Message] team and presents preliminary findings from this multiyear study.

  • Silent Footsteps: Renga Poetry as a Collaborative, Creative Research
           Method Reflecting on the Immobilities of Gender-Based Violence in the
           Covid-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mel Parks, Amanda Holt, Sian Lewis, Jessica Moriarty, Lesley Murray
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In the Covid-19 global crisis, gender-based violence (GBV) has been reshaped and reconfigured, with increases in some places and decreases in others. During our exploration of the changes in GBV through trans/feminist collaborative reflexive storying, we noticed the fragmentary nature of our storied recollections, which both represented and heightened the emotions in the work. With an intention of distilling the words even further, we challenged ourselves, as transdisciplinary researchers, to create a collaborative renga poem, which we titled, “Silent Footsteps.” An ancient Japanese form, the renga is a series of short, linked verses. This article demonstrates that renga offers an accessible, collaborative poetic research method, not only for research teams but also for non-academic groups to connect with each other. It has the ability to convey deep emotion, with an authentic personal voice, while being confined to structure and rules. Along with creating two stanzas each turn in a round of emails, we all wrote a reflection to engage with the process that identifies this method of writing research as holistic and creative, able to further connect the authors, reflect on the new knowledge and meaning that this work has motivated. Based on these reflections, which are woven throughout and on the renga poem, which is presented in full at the end, we argue that (a) renga is a timely poetic form, (b) it enhances transdisciplinary collaboration, and (c) that it offers both resistance and catharsis.

  • Chasing the Dragon (Magazine): Gender Erasure Through Discourse in Dragon
           Magazine, 1978–2005

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steven L. Dashiell
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the methods of discursive erasure of gender occurring in gaming spaces dominated by men. Tom Digby postulates a warrior masculinity honed among boys throughout their early experiences of gender socialization. This indoctrination valorizes manhood acts encouraged in male-dominated spaces. I use critical discourse analysis to examine 45 articles from Dragon magazine, a popular periodical associated with Dungeons & Dragons. I highlight textual characteristics of gender erasure, including pronoun usage, characterization of women as sources of protection, and humor surrounding women’s issues to illustrate how women were sidelined in early gaming subculture. I argue a historical reduction of women’s participation and a persisting male preserve set the stage for the contemporary concerns about gatekeeping and poor treatment of women in gaming and other fandoms.

      Authors: Anne E. Martin, Janice B. Fournillier
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      One viral video emerging from the January 6th, 2021 attempted insurrection showed a White woman crying about being maced upon her unlawful entry into the U.S. Capitol. We used intersectional and critical discourse methods to analyze 127 Twitter replies to the video constructing the Revolution Elizabeth meme. Twitter users alluded to popular culture to garner shared understanding and used sarcasm to interrogate White women’s privileges, often in contrast to the treatment of Black people. Absent from replies were nuanced considerations of racialized sexism. We argue that the discursive use of humor undercut the agentive possibilities associated with the meme.

  • Praxis-Oriented Research Toward a Liberatory Disability Politics: A
           Contemplative Inquiry Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sara M. Acevedo
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Knowledge extraction and the absence of reciprocity between scholars and grassroots practitioners in mainstream disability research are topics of concern for scholar-activists committed to disability justice in cultural and social studies research. Critical methodologies such as praxis-oriented research and scholar-activism in disability studies have sought to decenter Euro-American notions of expertise and nondisabled expert knowledge by centering disabled grassroots knowledge and leadership in all aspects of the disability experience. Overall, the literature demonstrates that emancipatory methods such as scholar-activism and praxis-oriented research have had a liberatory effect on disability studies inquiry. It also suggests that nondisabled researchers in other areas have yet to critically examine their role in perpetuating systemic ableism in their research practices. This article builds upon and extends the existing literature by considering disability studies scholars’ methodological interventions in traditionally dominant fields such as anthropology and policy studies. To keep with a praxis-oriented approach to research, the article uses a contemplative inquiry approach to discuss these interventions. Concluding remarks discuss the political significance of praxis-oriented research and its role in subverting unbalanced power dynamics between academic researchers and disabled grassroots practitioners, thus enabling a move toward a liberatory disability politics.

  • From Critical Race Theory to the January 6th Insurrection Speech: The High
           School Classroom and the Politics of Division

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Katrina M. Walker
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In the spring of 2021, conservative pundits and politicians renewed a decades-old attack on Critical Race Theory (CRT). Per usual, the attack intentionally misrepresented the nature and impact of CRT with the goal of derailing efforts to address systemic racial inequality. This push to maintain the status quo power structure is echoed in former President Trump’s January 6th speech urging his supporters to forcefully overturn the 2020 presidential election. In both cases, the politics of division and purposefully used misinformation are key tools. The high school classroom highlights these tools’ use. It is both a proxy space where larger social issues are focused and an actual space in which students are prepared to counter the pernicious effects of stoked division and misinformation. Based on experiences in a public high school’s 11th-grade World Literature class, this article explores how engagement with topical issues can equip students to recognize the politics of division and to be analytical and engaged citizens.

  • Show Up, Don’t Just Check In: A Comparative Study of Institutional
           Statements Released in “Unprecedented Times”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alexandria Johnson, Alexa Justice
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      University leaders frequently release statements following social, racial, and/or political events that affect the university population. Using Critical Discourse Analysis and Intersectional Analysis, this study offers a comparative exploration of institutional responses to two central and conflicting events that took place in the final year of the Trump administration: the murder of George Floyd in May 2020 and the insurrection at the Capitol in January 2021. In comparing how institutions addressed both events, we found that the statements issued in 2020 were what we defined as “transformational” while the 2021 statements engaged less with systemic injustice. This analysis provides a useful guideline for future studies to address the responses of administrators to national events that have had polarizing or psychological impacts on the higher education community and offers support for institutional leaders who wish to put their holistic selves in their writing to serve the institution’s more progressive diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.

  • Syllabus as Crisis Autoethnography: Performance in Extraordinary Times

      Authors: Judith Hamera
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This personal essay examines entanglements of contemporary crises and pedagogical routines using the syllabus as autoethnography. Syllabi are an intrinsically autoethnographic genre: combining personal and disciplinary ideals, scoring contributing voices via course materials, and operating within the realities of academic labor. The syllabus for “Performance in Extraordinary Times” organizes reflections on the ways COVID-19, lethal U.S. anti-Blackness, shocks to U.S. performing arts communities, and crises of student mental health unfolded between 2020 and 2021. The essay invites questions about the ways syllabi operate as crisis management strategies and how they sometimes succumb to the very dynamics they aspire to address.

  • The Big Lie(s): Situating the January 6th Coup Attempt Within White
           Supremacist Lies

      Authors: Andrea M. Hawkman, Sarah Diem
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Donald Trump’s attempts to retain power despite losing the 2020 presidential election by engaging in a wide-ranging mis/disinformation campaign has been framed as The Big Lie. By framing Trump’s attempts at stealing the election as The Big Lie, it erases the systemic presence of white supremacy and situates all other lies as truths. We utilize critical discourse analysis to construct an intersectional understanding of how Trump utilized lies in preparation for his attempted insurrection. In doing so, we situate these claims within the network of larger lies used to protect whiteness within the United States. Through this work, we highlight how educators can situate white supremacist lies within historical and contemporary racial realism in pursuit of anti-racist civic understanding.

  • I Didn’t Ask for Any of This: (White) Privilege, the American
           (Dream) Family, and Health Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ryan King-White
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      As a cisgendered White male who emerged from a decidedly working-class family, the national fantasy of achieving the prototypical “American Dream” (i.e., working a white-collar job, getting married and raising children in “good” neighborhoods, and an opportunity at a better quality of life for our offspring) has long been socialized into my life. However, as I have reached the supposed mountaintop both personally and professionally to become part of what Stewart terms the “New American Aristocracy”—that is, the so-called 9.9%—so too have I become increasingly discomfited by that which it represents. In this autoethnographic narrative accounting, I offer a critical yet necessarily confessional look back at the concessions, complications, and privileges my family’s subjective performances of Whiteness have revealed about the ever-growing toxic class divide in the United States. The results of our exchange will and cannot be perfect, but, hopefully, a step in a better direction.

      Authors: Helen Owton
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Through a series of vignettes, this article offers an insight into the intense embodied and sensorial experiences of motorcycling via “sudden moments.” I reflect on the phenomenological interconnectedness of environment and the fragility of the motorcycling body–self via the exploration of “thrownness” and “sudden moments.” These intense embodied moments of “thrownness” can disrupt the feelings of pleasure and enjoyment from being “in the zone.” Surviving the threat, the body may experience a renewed positive heightened corporeal sense of “aliveness,” elation, and relief working at an intense level, with positive effects on one’s mental health.

  • (Re) Stor(y)ing Class: Working-Class Women, Smartness, and Higher
           Education

      Authors: Erin Tomlinson, Marnina Gonick
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      For Canadian-born working-class women, university is often characterized through the axioms of “expanding one’s mind,” “bettering one’s life,” and “saving oneself from a life of hardship.” Associated with these adages is “smartness,” a signature orientation of the academy and a designation that has often excluded the working-class. Our article asks: What does it mean to be a working-class woman in higher education in Canada' How do working-class women negotiate competing notions of “smartness” existing between the university and their home communities' In what ways do these women resist their exclusions from “smartness” and the university project' We answer these questions by drawing on memory stories written by six working-class women who attended or were attending university. The memory stories were written at a series of workshops that one of the authors organized employing the feminist research methodology of Collective Biography. Our analysis illustrates some strategies that working-class and racialized women may use in their encounter with the university including downplaying the value of their working-class backgrounds to make way for the new knowledge to be gained in university, drawing on the strength of community for support, and positioning working-class common sense knowledge as superior to the book knowledge privileged in university. Each story involves the necessity of navigating competing notions of smartness that marks belonging within the university, family, and community.

      Authors: Erica B. Edwards, Jennifer Esposito
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      The insurrection that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 is distinct because of its deep ties to White supremacist rhetoric and mobilization. What is also significant is the undeniable role of popular media in establishing the discourse, leadership, and plans that made the event possible. This special issue uses intersectional analysis to interrogate why/how the uprising occurred, and to imagine education as a critical intervention toward countering the bigotry at the day’s root. Together, the articles advance the argument that what the world witnessed that day was White privilege, real or imagined, fighting to preserve itself.

      Authors: Rachel N. Hastings
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In 2020, the CoronaVirus Global Pandemic pressed pause on basic, everyday human activities all around the world. Except online. Hastings draws upon the power of performative writing and autonarratives to stitch together her memories of living and teaching online during a pandemic. By using digital communication tools and social media platforms, Hastings shows how she engaged in a new-age form of performative decolonization that is carried out through dramatic acts of digital advocacy. She presents both a snapshot of the past and a glimpse of how we might use digital resources to move forward—virtually and culturally.

  • U.S. Gun Culture as a Martial Culture Within a Weberian Framework:
           Disrupting the State’s Monopoly on Force

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Josephine Harmon
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This article proposes a new analytical framework to understand U.S. gun culture and its attendant cultural identifiers. It uses the Weberian concept of the state, in which the state’s monopoly on force is the basis of its legitimacy. Using this theory of the state, my key theoretical contribution is that gun culture is a contestation of the state’s monopoly on force. Relatedly, I argue that the system of cultural identifiers attached to gun culture competes with state power. In this way, gun culture asserts a devolved, local and patrimonial system of social power. I use this synthetic context of U.S. gun culture to understand theoretical issues of citizen–state relations and the role of identification in envisaging local power while offering narcissistic compensations to disenfranchised people. This descriptive theory argues that the state monopoly on force constitutes a central clause of the social contract between state and citizen, and the breach of this monopoly within gun culture challenges the contract itself. Identity and its conceptual markers, then, have a political end as a surrogate for social authority and personal-local power. This political function is hinted at but not adequately theorized in gun culture literature, certainly not using a Weberian, ‘monopoly on force’ framework. I propose that gun culture signals an antagonism within the social contract, in which citizens cede use of force to the state. This antagonism is activated in this case but theoretically latent in citizen–state relations. This article builds on the Hobbesian–Weberian premise to propose a model of Martial Culture Theory (MCT) to describe U.S. gun culture and those political movements that seek to reduce through force the state monopoly on power by diminishing its legitimacy and claiming theirs as a legitimate exercise of force.Through this process occurs a renegotiation of socio-political power distribution with the state. I submit this insight has valuable implications for state theory and citizen–state relations. In addition, it offers the most complete theory of how small government conservatism aligns with identity politics in U.S. gun culture, and how the prevailing mode of identitarian politics can manifest and be harnessed toward contestations of state power in Hobbesian-Weberian thought.

      Authors: Arthur D. Soto-Vásquez, Mariana Sánchez-Santos
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      The January 6 Capitol insurrection highlighted the central role conspiracy and disinformation play in motivating political violence among the right wing in the United States. In this article, the spread of Spanish-language disinformation by right-wing media in the United States is explored from a cultural and intersectional perspective. We analyze the mythological and dramatic narratives in content from a Spanish-language conspiracy website posted between the 2020 election and the Capitol insurrection. These narratives are explored through the lens of the deep story, which is the epistemological basis of U.S. conservatism. We argue that the deep story and right-wing conspiracy culture are highly flexible and can appeal to certain non-White audiences online. We then interrogate right-wing U.S. Latina/o/x political identity through an intersectional analysis of the conspiracy culture exemplified in the disinformation from the website.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This article was written as part of an academic project about the autoethnographs of the times of crisis that academic teachers from several universities in Poland took part in. From the collected stories about experiencing the pandemic, we singled out the thread of distance learning. We created a multivoiced narrative and then submitted it to a collective reflection. Collective autoethnography made it possible not only to recognize changes in the thinking about the self, academic culture, and teaching itself but also to pose questions about the possibility of transformation.

      Authors: Anjuliet G. Woodruffe
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In this essay, I engage with and extend the work of Black feminist scholars and poets Audre Lorde, June Jordan, Patricia Hill Collins, and Patricia Williams by examining the ways that Black mothers use anger to make sense of their lives amid the continuous law enforcement sanctioned killing of Black men by White police. Using poetry, I interweave with the Black feminist voices of the past and present to reconstruct a narrative about Black mothering and Black boyhood amid the spirit murders in communities of color in the United States. I use a conversation with my 5-year-old son as the genesis of this intellectual stimulation to construct a poetic autoethnography of Black mothering experiences as a generative rescripting of Black lives. This work is an impassioned, critical, and necessary mode of inquiry that speaks about the daily realities of Black mothers raising Black sons in America.

      Authors: Lorien S. Jordan, Dewey Dykes
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Donald Trump turned the presidency into a live-action reality television series comprising a chaotic blend of televised and tweeted intrigue. The nation’s collective anxiety coalesced in a nationalistic, authoritarian denouement on January 6, 2021. During Trump’s speech at the Save American Rally, he returned to familiar themes, telling the story of a ravaged America and his role as its victimized hero. As Trump concluded his speech urging supporters to “fight like hell,” rioters assailed the U.S. capitol revealing the violence of colonial invasion. To understand and, thus, respond to the insurrection, we must first recognize the dominant structures that create the conditions of its perpetration and excusal. This intersectional analysis addresses the colonial impulse for violent exclusion through the interpretive framework of settler colonialism. Examining four interlocking themes, we incorporate historical and contemporary popular culture rhetorical devices to triangulate our findings. We illustrate how social identity and settler colonialism occur in popular culture at the intersections of American, Christian nationalism, racialization, hetero-genderism, and ableism. Overall, our analysis explores how Trump prepared his base through years of cultural manipulation, promoting a populist, White vision of the world with Trump symbolic of its savior. To subvert these exploitations, we must participate in their deconstruction to destabilize the power of colonial institutions.

      Authors: Polina Golovátina-Mora
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      The article explores rhizomatic poetic practices of Medellín-based graffiti artist Señor Ok. His work is the city revealed as a relational, multidimensional texture. It transforms striated urban space to smooth by bringing other meanings from the periphery to the surface and decentralizing the dominant image of the city. I look at his work as poetry as an entanglement of his relationship and his daily life in the city, in the country, in the broader world. I argue that as an assemblage that forms assemblages within the urban textures, his art becomes methodology for critical non-representational affective inquiry of urban spaces.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This piece reflects on how training in critical qualitative research impacts the academic work and lives of female qualitative researchers. In a higher education system dominated by quantitative logics of productivity and daily life, the possibilities of promotion and permanence in the academy are conditioned. Therefore, we consider necessary to better understand the experiences of crossing academic cultures that impact both, in first person and in the academic communities of qualitative research focused on social transformation. This piece seeks to contribute to the relevance of qualitative research training processes from postmodern paradigms toward the recognition of politically defined academic positions.

      Authors: Julie-Ann Scott-Pollock
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This reflective autoethnographic essay grapples with how the January 6 insurrection challenged our progressive, White, middle-class, privileged family in our relationships with those who support the insurrection and former president Donald J. Trump in our southern coastal city. Our children navigate new realizations about other White, privileged children who they never realized did not share their values. I struggle with how sensing the difference in another family’s values, I still allowed relationships to grow. After our children’s friend began arguing about the legitimacy of the election and vocalizing his dislike of our gender creative son’s chosen aesthetic, we re-evaluate the safety of the friendship. The January 6 insurrection intensified our children’s fear and concern. They collectively became uncomfortable around people they now tangibly understand desire leaders that will target their beliefs, their marginalized friends, and for our gender creative son, his safety. I explore the balance of values, personal protection, consequences, education, hope, growth, and forgiveness through personal narrative.

I also consider in this performative text, the way a researcher’s thoughts whirl around and respond to what is being shared, although never voiced at the time.

           Response to DEI-A Work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bryant Keith Alexander
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This short piece was originally conceptualized as a response and support of a young tenure-track faculty-of-color who was experiencing academic bullying and threat of recrimination for her unwavering work in DEI-A (diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism) in an academic unit that claims to support the work of decolonizing its curriculum. But also, a unit in which some seemingly resist personal challenge and the necessary self-work that differentially inconveniences majority students and faculty. The response of resistance becomes the vernacular of dis-ease that interrupts DEI-A work in a liberal economy. This commentary, which extends beyond the place and space of this encounter, speaks to what might be national tensions between the cultural sustainability of privilege and cultural transformation for social justice. This piece also evidences the importance of academic administrators being able to articulate and strengthen their own commitments to DEI-A, to support faculty in the collective struggle of our academic and political defensive labor for social justice. This recognizing that none of us are immune to the sting of critique in defense of our convictions and that of our university values.

      Authors: Lore/tta LeMaster
      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Content warning: This relational meditation centers suicidality including suicidal talk (as well as talk by currently suicidal people) and suicidal ideation. Dear reader, approach this piece with compassion and care. Seek the support and care you require—ideally on your terms and in a community of care. In this relational meditation, I offer a performative response to Alexander Baril’s (2020) “suicidal manifesto” in the hopes of “building relations with suicidal people” (sec. 2.3.2, para. 2). Of the current crises we are navigating, suicidality persists. Be it through the recent loss of a dear queer mentor and friend to suicide, the suicidal student whose means of relating evade the violence of mandated reporting over mandated care, or the mundane suicidal ebbs and flows that have long organized my own lived experience, suicidality is a fact of my life and I would venture to suggest yours as well. I performatively engage Baril’s “critical suicidality” in the hopes of inviting further and even more complex dialogues around mental health, wellness, and suicidality free of stigma and shame. While we theorize, organize, and perform means by which to survive our current crises, destigmatizing suicidality must be of paramount importance. This was not easy to write; it may not be easy to read.

      This article is an exploration of the zine as a form of practice that is radical and disruptive. It takes the form of six sections and has its own zine armature. It describes a zine workshop held in Kampala, Uganda, during lockdown, and constitutes a record of that event. The authors argue that zine-making is itself a form that can offer a queering of the status quo and can make authors of us all. It invites the reader into the space of the zine as a form that is both materially grounded and epistemologically challenging.

      This article is written as and ethnodrama. Approaching memory work as decolonial practice, we aimed to multiply stories of Cold War childhoods while simultaneously making the politics of collective biography processes explicit. The script is based on nonfictional reality and is expanded by both researched and speculative elements to compose an evocative text and the characters of the drama. Ethnodrama offers a sense of how it was to “be there,” attending to unspoken and embodied knowledges, questioning habits and assumptions, and making visible the hierarchies and power, and the intricacies and coloniality of knowledge production that emerge in research practices.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In the context of an alarmingly sped up “slow death” for disabled people living under emergency COVID-19 medical triage protocols in Ontario, Canada, that produce, naturalize, and weaponize our vulnerability, we assert that slow digital story-making opens a threshold space filled with complex, relational, lively collaborative worldmaking. Here, we analyze videos made by three digital/multimedia story-makers, known as experimenters, who express the turbulence they lived through via storywork that described their unique yet entwined vantage points. Following Rosi Braidotti’s caution against capitalizing on tragedy, we offer Donna Haraway’s “compost writing” as an alternative to building theory. By compos(t)ing online multimedia stories that straddle digital/human/more-than-human realms, we take up “digital composting” as an unfinished methodology wherein we move collectively, even from the isolation of our own homes. We posit slow digital story-making as a way of “staying with the trouble” as we find ourselves worldmaking at the complex threshold between life/death, vulnerability/resistance, individual/relational, human/nonhuman. To compost digital multimedia stories is to leave them to ruminate in the complex entanglements of posthuman existences in urgent times.

      Over the last 30 years, Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been applied successfully as an analytical framework, through which, to explore matters of “race,” racialization, and subordination in numerous fields. For CRT to continue to be relevant, there is a need to reorient it as a guiding analytical framework, to account for the ubiquity of digital technologies across liberal Western democracies and the ways in which they have radically changed social and cultural production. During this article, we wish to extend this argument further and encourage the development of critical race methodologies (CRMs) fit for the (hyper)digital moment, so we are equipped better to challenge the persistence of racialized hierarchies and the emerging cultural circumstances in which they operate. It identifies the philosophical principles that underpin CRMs and concludes by outlining critical race semiotics (CRS) as an analytical tool dedicated to human emancipation, particular to our highly visual culture.

      Through the use performative writing and autoethnography, this piece reflects on the current state of collective crises and social science to reinvigorate our approaches to building more equitable futures. More specifically, I push back on the politics of violent visibility for marginalized subjects both inside and outside the academy. I argue that texts and images of minoritarian trauma and violence reify the structures of power that created those material conditions to begin with. Utilizing the process of queer of color worldmaking, I suggest that centering minoritarian joy becomes a tool for speaking back toward our current climate of collective crisis. The piece concludes displaying the potential of experiencing and writing through collective joy.

These communities have always been there, but our collective gaze has, over a long period of time, persistently turned outward. Taking the term public, this article examines how iterations of the public realm reveal authority and the circulation of knowledge. We suggest two instances of the public realm “ephemeral” and “migrating” to draw attention to the inherent possibilities for communities to speak on their own authority. In so doing, this article draws on Hannah Arendt, Michel Foucault, and Nancy Luxon to offer a particular theoretical framework to recognize the appearance of what we term the educative agent. We are concerned with who has the authority and can enact the self as a speaking subject. We argue that power is increasingly standing in place of authority. A new concept is offered, that of the educative agent, which highlights the possibilities of the public. To understand how a sense of authority can be reinstated and recognized, we look to the work of Luxon.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This article brings together discourse analysis, Foucauldian genealogy, and frame analysis to propose frame genealogy. Frame genealogy is an interdisciplinary approach that allows us to trace processes of socioeducational change and uncover relationships between the educational past and present. After outlining the approach, we present its application in a study of Christian Right educational discourse. We demonstrate that frame genealogy can be used to identify discursive regularities between current educational discourse and policy and historical discourses of White and male supremacism while at the same time noting transformations and modifications related to the historically specific contexts. Frame genealogy also supports tracing elements in current educational discourse (e.g., discourses of choice and school failure). Such work exemplifies what Foucault understood as the meticulous work of rediscovering the historical, sociopolitical struggles enacted through policy discourses.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      This autoethnography pays homage to my mother and all the women who supported each other through the act of abortion. Coming of age in the era of Roe v. Wade, I accessed a legal and safe abortion with my mother’s help. My mother who became a nurse during the era of illegal abortions witnessed young women dying at the hands of the state. My mother, like many women before her, acted to help another woman terminate an unwanted pregnancy, an act of resistance to a system that devalues women by privileging the fetus over the body that supports its existence.

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      In this essay I address insights gained during pandemic isolation in contrast to core assumptions of my professional discipline of communication. Drawing on perspectives from feminist studies of health and medicine, disability studies, and queer studies, I examine my increased health and productivity during social distancing. This is followed by a revised excerpt of an essay written to colleagues during our annual meeting, which had moved online. I conclude interrogating the ideology of beneficent connectedness.

  • “Seven Days in Lockdown”: A Performance Autoethnography of Physical
           Activity and Mental Health

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      COVID-19 increased anxiety levels worldwide. Significant mental health consequences are becoming evident across society, from children to seniors. The pandemic left millions of people out of work or unable to work. It simultaneously increased stress levels for many who remained in work. It made day-to-day life worse—much worse—for a lot of people. I was not immune to these difficulties. Yet, paradoxically, I found that lockdown also offered circumstances to support a degree of recovery or healing. This performance autoethnography draws on diary excerpts I wrote during lockdown in 2020 to explore how various forms of physical activity can help mental health. It offers an alternative perspective on a question that researchers have investigated for decades: When it comes to mental health recovery, what actually works'

  • Dream Time With Dad: Autoethnography as Ritual in the Time of COVID-19

      Authors: Christopher C. Collins

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      The following autoethnography is a death ritual for my father. The ritual enacts my father’s process of artmaking and his request to preserve his story through an act of poiesis. The text constellates themes of generational psychic inheritance, polytheism, and an orientation toward death. These subjects are framed by the larger context of a global pandemic and a health care system under duress. Autoethnography as ritual provides a method for transforming relationships, integrating experiences of death, and honoring the life of the individual.

  • Heidegger and the Technocratic Warping of the COVID-19 Pandemic

      Abstract: Cultural Studies ↔ Critical Methodologies, Ahead of Print.
      Martin Heidegger notably argued that modern technology differs from technology of the past because it constitutes an ontological condition that is shaped by technological structures which determine our views of the world as being scientifically dependent on ordering. This study engages with Heidegger’s philosophy on technology to investigate the basis of the COVID pandemic response in liberal democratic contexts. It argues that attempts at controlling the virus represent a newfound technocratic effort to re-optimize human beings as resources and fungible raw materials based on their biological characteristics. In the trajectory of responding to public health crises, governments carried out tech-aided restrictions and policies that produced (and will continue to produce) adverse outcomes for large portions of society that will likely end up surpassing the virus in total hazard ratio.
