  • Editor's Column: On the Use and Abuse of Analogy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Afropessimist Frank Wilderson warns against what he calls "the ruse of analogy," urging us to learn to differentiate between anti-Blackness and all other forms of racism. Blackness is not just another difference to be accounted for, something that an intersectionally-inclined critic might in principle be able to accommodate. Blackness is deeply linked to what it means to be a human: to be human is to not be Black (synonymous with the positionality of the slave). For this reason, Afropessimism and other currents in Critical Black Studies display suspicion about the move to analogize. A refrain in the works of Afropessimists is that Black slavery is "without analog" (Wilderson, Red 38). To this point, Wilderson moves ... Read More

      Abstract: [Racism] is rather more like Freud's dreamwork than anything else … racism expresses itself through displacement, through denial, through … the capacity to say [or represent] … contradictory things.In an instructive outline of Afro-pessimism written in 2016, Jared Sexton stresses that this emerging mode of radical critique effects a shift from the empirical to the structural, and, concomitantly, a shift from the experiential (and thereby also the phenomenological and psychological) to the realm of political ontology. Afro-pessimism, in addition, jettisons any reference to racism as a general phenomenon, preferring instead to focus on what, with good reason, it takes to be a far more precise and urgent analytical ...

  • Slave/Animal/Labor: Marxist Incapacity and The Direction Analogy Flows

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This series of meditations takes as its starting point Frank B. Wilderson III's "ruse of analogy" (35–53) to reconceptualize slave, animal, and labor relations under capitalist and Marxist signs of human capacity. Wilderson's "ruse" is often read as a transcendental objection to analogizing slavery in social contexts, from the tyranny of British taxation to the drudgery of housework, that spin away from actually existing slaves and the concrete black experience. Against the brush of rhetorical concealment, an Afro-pessimist orientation might be expected to respond to Marjorie Spiegel's collapse of animal and slave in The Dreaded Comparison, for example, with defense and disaggregation. Spiegel's variety of animal ... Read More

  • Racial Capitalism and the Grounds of Contradiction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The approach here is to understand comparative racism within forms of contemporary capitalism and the logic in which it has lived and lives. Comparative racism attends to the production and reproduction of race, racialization, and racism as a global analytic with specific formations. Difficulties abound at the level of comparatism, not just because of how race is defined and historicized at different locations, but because of the complex formations of knowledge implied, crisscrossed by modes of epistemic violence contrasted with community agency unassimilable to standard cognitive "maps" of globality. In understanding the relationship of these processes within capitalism, I am influenced by Cedric Robinson, and ... Read More

      Abstract: On August 8th, 2001, Keith and Mendi Obadike posted on eBay for a starting bid of $10 "Keith Obadike's Blackness." This conceptual and performance work is titled Blackness for Sale and remains all too relevant two decades later. Native to the bidding platform, the work addresses the ongoing commoditization as well as violence experienced by blacks in the United States.1 From slave auctions to sports drafts, from jazz to hip hop, Blackness remains for sale (McGuigan 5). And, conversely, without value, as made evident by the numerous innocent deaths to police brutality, which Black Lives Matter echoes for those who will listen. The Obadikes' auction was meant to last ten days, but eBay removed it after four days. The ... Read More

      Abstract: [Tenure is the difference between] first-class citizenship and second-class citizenship in the academy. I refuse to go through the back door.It's not enough that your courses are expendable; your scholarship inessential; and your discipline is not worth saving. Nor is it enough that you are subjected to continuous micro-management and maximal measurement. When assessment became your culture, at least you did not have to worry about an audit of your values and ideas. But neoliberalism now wants these too.To be sure, research in neoliberal academe is still expected to raise revenue. And ranking, the ultimate mark of prestige, remains a prime directive. Moreover, professional performance continues to involve only that ... Read More

  • Ornamentalism in the French Empire

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Ornamentalism, Anne Cheng theorizes the "yellow woman" in the American context. The yellow woman, Cheng argues, names the process of racialization by which the Asian/Asian American woman has been constructed in Western discourse: not via her biological skin but by the ornaments she dons, including ceramic, jewelry, and clothing. Cheng calls this phenomenon by the name of ornamentalism, "whereby personhood is named or conceived through ornamental gestures, which speak through the minute, the sartorial, the prosthetic, and the decorative" (18). She continues: "To attend to ornamentalism is to ask how racial personhood can be assembled not through organic flesh but instead through synthetic inventions and designs ... Read More

  • The Fancy Girl Episteme: Tracking the Legacy of Master-Slave Rape in the
           Evolution of the Tragic Mulatto Trope

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Writing mixed race female protagonists during the abolition movement and the Harlem Renaissance, the 1853 novel Clotel: or, The President's Daughter by William Wells Brown and 1928 novella Quicksand by Nella Larsen together offer a rich entry point into the development of the tragic mulatto trope in literature. Cited as the first novel written by an African American, Clotel sets up conventions of the trope while Quicksand portrays it through a revisionist lens almost a century later. These two novels exploit the popular sentimental genre in order to engage with the less socially acceptable topics of abolition, racial pride, and feminism. This paper focuses on the convergences and critical dissonances of the texts ... Read More

In 2018, historian Fred L Johnson III wrote, "American race relations are taking two very different paths at the same time. On the one hand, we're seeing growing mainstream acknowledgment of black pride projected through art. […] On the other, racism and xenophobia are exerting tremendous influence in national politics."

  • Žižek's Jews

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In memory of Dennis W. AllenJews are everywhere in Slavoj Žižek. Jewish jokes are among his most vibrant textual examples; anti-Semitism is one of his most insistent themes, not to mention a tendency of which he himself is sometimes accused. His passionate engagement with theorists both Jewish (Marx, Freud, Benjamin, Levinas, Arendt, Eric Santner) and Jewish-agonistic (Hegel, Nietzsche, Carl Schmitt, Heidegger) places identitarian issues front and center. From his earliest English writings onward, the figure of "the Jew" epitomizes for Žižek the convergence of capitalist ideology and psychical fantasy in the modern European imagination. More recently, and in dialogue with thinkers such as Alain Badiou, Judith ... Read More

  • The Language of Flowers in Henry James's In the Cage: Mrs. Jordan's
           Ecological Message

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Against the modern industrial backdrop of the late-Victorian culture, Henry James places Mrs. Jordan in the middle of a highly technologized London society as a florist whose aesthetic work in upper-class houses encodes sharp criticism of people's negative attitude to nature and the ecological system they control and live in. Working as a florist, in other words, functions as an invitation to readers to reflect on the possible dangers and persistent horrors of the late-Victorian wasteland of prevalent industries of technological communication, here telegraphy. James employs Mrs. Jordan in his narrative to affirm and defend the transcendental ideals of a bygone eco-friendly human environment that discloses the ... Read More

      Abstract: What is Hell' Your definitions.In 1965, LeRoi Jones offered a paradox for our consideration. In the "SOUND AND IMAGE" postscript of The System of Dante's Hell, Jones tells us, Hell is definitions. Parts of that work were previously published in the Jones and Diane Di Prima editions of Floating Bear (1961–62) during a massive cultural-political and social identity shift in the U.S. Their publishing it resulted in them being arrested for obscenity charges in 1961. This history lends itself to our treatment of the logic of identity by considering one's position amongst others with respect to identity assertions. Our treatment is made by analyzing this puzzle through the philosophy language. We take on those tools to ... Read More

  • "God is everywhere": What Muriel Spark Is Up To in Robinson

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Why did Muriel Spark undertake a rewriting of Robinson Crusoe (1719, 2003) in her second novel, Robinson (1958, 2003)'1 Of all earlier novels available to her for such a purpose, this one, with its Presbyterian, extremely masculine protagonist and his masculine world, would seem antithetical to her firmly Catholic foundation and predilection for centering on women and their society.2 In her essay "How I Became a Novelist" (2014), Spark writes that "When I started my next novel [after her first, The Comforters] I was in an adventurous mood and I wrote a desert-island story called Robinson" (45).As elegant as this explanation is, others surface—for example, that a book without women, like Crusoe, all but begged for a ...

  • Countermapping and Temporal Borders in Rachid Boudjedra's: Topographie
           idéale pour une agression caractérisée

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Rachid Boudjedra's 1975 novel, Topographie idéale pour une agression caractérisée, a small-town Algerian migrant descends into the unfamiliar space of the Parisian metro. Dragging an overstuffed suitcase and clutching a scrap of paper with the address of his destination, the protagonist confronts what, from his perspective, is a labyrinth of escalators, hallways, impatient commuters, and lewd advertisements. Time dissolves for Boudjedra's traveler. As Parisian commuters hurry along trajectories they take for granted, the novel's protagonist confronts a slower, more disorienting route. He waits, departs, arrives, changes trains, and departs again.This article examines Boudjedra's novel as a countermap of the ... Read More

      Abstract: When I was invited to give this talk, I definitely wanted to come speak to you here. But I was put off—I hesitated—because of this year's topic, "Spaces." I felt I had nothing to say about the topic. Over five decades of writing about theory, I had never really focused on space. Whereas, in contrast, I have frequently written about time. My 1992 book on feminist literary theory was called "Around 1981," because it centered on that particular moment. My 2011 book The Deaths of the Author is subtitled "Reading and Writing in Time," because time is absolutely central to its retheorization of the death of the author. And my most recent book, Sexuality, Disability, and Aging, is subtitled "Queer Temporalities of the ... Read More

      Abstract: Crowd behavior has proven difficult to understand. So difficult that some contend that there has been no substantial progress in understanding crowd behavior since the first major study of the subject was published by Gustave Le Bon in 1895.In Crowds, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht "immodestly claims to facilitate such intellectual progress by developing a number of pertinent new concepts and angles of reflection in relation to crowds" (viii). While one can debate the "progress" Gumbrecht makes on this topic relative to his predecessors, there is no denying that the absence of crowds during the coronavirus pandemic has only made the hearts of many yearn to again be among a multitude of bodies. The question of why many are ... Read More

      Abstract: In the conclusion to "What is an Author'" Michel Foucault singles out Karl Marx as one example of an "uncommon kind of author" whose name is not merely attached to a set of texts, a system of belief or a scientific discipline. Whereas these more common forms of authorship treat the author of a text or theory as an originary point that can be imitated, challenged, or discredited, Marx functions instead as someone who produces a set of "rules for the formation of other texts" that render his thinking internally heterogeneous, "creat[ing] a possibility for […] texts, concepts and hypotheses" that differ from Marx's while nonetheless belonging to the discursive field he founded. This sense of internal heterogeneity ... Read More

      Abstract: In an impressive work of interdisciplinary scholarship, Gayle Rogers traces the notion of "speculation" and terms denoting it from their origins in Greek and Latin philosophy through their evocations in Christianized medieval and early modern thought to their later fortunes. "Speculation" becomes a suspect and valorized agent in finance and most recently has been separated from direct human control with the advent of computer-driven algorithmic equations regulating investments. The term of choice to describe both sublime religious wonder and calculation of odds in dice games, speculation's gyrations from positive to negative connotations and back again correlate with major shifts in intellectual history, material ...

      Abstract: J.M. Coetzee: Truth, Meaning, Fiction by Anthony Uhlmann approaches literary signification in the Nobel Prize-winning novelist's corpus, looking at the published works and their archival avant-textes. It focuses on the philosophical problem of intuition as a starting point for thought to demonstrate how Coetzee's fictions create meaning. The book concerns the way literature produces particular "forms," "techniques," "methods" and "processes" of thinking in the composition, the comprehension and the reception that becomes the interpretive afterlife of texts.How does fiction create truths by constructing meaning through thinking' Both the introduction and the first chapter address this epistemological question.

      Abstract: The anxiety about the untamable "other" delegitimizing territorial boundaries of nation-states and culturally or racially bounded communities that propel the production of identities is perhaps the most tenacious affective register of the twenty-first century. The "anxious mastery" over the "other" that building walls, anti-immigration laws, and state-sponsored violence betray is put along a comparative axis with the anxiousness of the narrator losing control over the heterogeneity of the text in Mara de Gennaro's Modernism after Postcolonialism: Toward a Nonterritorial Comparative Literature (2020). An insurmountable abyss between the narratorial desire for complete control and the swelling boundaries of the text ... Read More

      Abstract: In the first line of the introduction to her study New Ecological Realisms, Monika Kaup asks her principal theoretical question: what comes after poststructuralism' The parallel literary question her study poses is what comes after apocalypse, and how do the protagonists of post-apocalyptic narratives learn to navigate their worlds. Through a sudden epidemic of blindness, extreme violence and social breakdown, a nuclear holocaust, or a mass poisoning by pharmaceuticals, post-apocalypse narrates the end of one world and the assembly of a new. Via a discussion of four fictional post-apocalyptic scenarios, Kaup demonstrates that reconceptualizing the subject is a primary concern in each. When apocalypse has exposed ... Read More

      Abstract: In 1970, the Gaullist government of Georges Pompidou, in the aftermath of the 1968 Paris student rebellion, declared the Maoist party with which many student leaders and others outside the traditional left were affiliated, the Gauche Proletarienne [Proletarian Left] or GP illegal. Its leaders were rounded up and imprisoned. Immediately, those leaders sought to continue the struggle inside prison, even as various intellectuals came to their defense outside, with Jean-Paul Sartre, for example, assuming the editorship of their banned newspaper, La cause du peuple [The People's Cause] and distributing it in the streets. Within prison, the initial goal of the GP was to have the party leaders declared political ... Read More
