  • The holy family: Neoliberalism and neoconservatism in the current
           far-right: Interview with Melinda Cooper

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bruna Della Torre, Melinda Cooper
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      Interview with Melinda Cooper about her 2017 book Family Values: Between Neoliberalism and the New Social Conservatism. The interview addresses neoliberal gender politics, Cooper’s critique of the separation between politics of “distribution” and “recognition,” contemporary politics in America and the question of reproductive labor.

  • Introduction: Neoliberalism in the Americas. Brutal experiments,
           distressful realities, and conspicuous contestations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Eduardo Altheman, Mónica González García, Ximena Martínez
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      This special issue was originally conceived as a conference organized at Duke University in January 2019, entitled “Neoliberalism in the Americas: Brutal Experiments, Distressful Realities, and Conspicuous Contestations. Re-thinking the South in the North and the North in the South.” The premise that inspired this reunion was, since Milton Friedman used dictatorial Chile as a laboratory for his monetary theories, neoliberalism has always been a matter that concerned the Americas as a continent. It has bound together Chicago and Santiago in one single package of authoritarian rule and unfettered capitalism, blemished with Nobel prizes, wealth concentration, and always-renewed, never-fulfilled promises of freedom and economic growth. Most of the articles were originally presented at the aforementioned conference, including a piece shared by one of the keynote speakers, Brazilian philosopher Vladimir Safatle. Nonetheless, we have also incorporated other contributions, such as an interview with Australian scholar Melinda Cooper. These works address neoliberalism from literature to psychoanalysis, from politics to gender and sexual identities, from historical and present-day investigations. The result is a multinational, transdisciplinary volume centered on the experiments of neoliberalization which, since the 1970s, connect the entire continent—ultimately reaching the extent of a truly global experience.

  • Neoliberalism and neocolonialism in Nadia Prado’s @Copyright (2003):
           Towards a decolonial reading

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bárbara Fernández-Melleda
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      This paper reads Nadia Prado’s poetry collection ©Copyright (2003) from a decolonial perspective, based on Walter Mignolo’s conceptualization of history as heterogeneous and decentred, aspects that I argue also permeate subjectivity and poetic expression. The poem delves into criticism of both Chilean neoliberal reality and a wider Latin American context in which the US has become a new economic and cultural hegemonic entity to be resisted from the margins. As a follow-up from the poetry/performance work Poesía es + (2002), co-authored with Malú Urriola, ©Copyright explores expression or its lack thereof within a profit-driven Chilean democratic transitional moment. Prado’s poetry opens up space that paves the way for a deep critique of neo-colonialism and neoliberalism. At the same time, this poem becomes part of a larger corpus of poetic, narrative and critical work that has compiled concerns and discontents since neoliberalism was imposed in Chile.

  • The return of neoliberalism in Argentina: Towards a critical theory from
           (and for) the global south

      Authors: Santiago M. Roggerone
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      The victory of Mauricio Macri in the 2015 Argentine presidential election led to a kind of return of neoliberalism, soon resisted by the people and the political opposition. In this paper I will address the question of how recent regressive neoliberal policies and austerity agenda have been defied and counteracted by progressive forces and the Argentine left-wing movements. To do so, I will periodize this country’s recent history and map the positions occupied by the local left in order to argue that neoliberalism has never been entirely hegemonic in Argentina. By doing this, I hope to contribute to the development of a critical theory from (and for) the global south.

      Authors: Vladimir Safatle
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      The article aims to discuss some psychic consequences of the emergence of neoliberalism. I seek to understand the major changes presupposed by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder III upon the rise of a neoliberal subjectivity. If we want to have a real idea of the disciplinary process immanent to neoliberalism, we need to understand how it changed our way of describing categories of psychic suffering and disease.

      Authors: Hassan Mbiydzenyuy Yosimbom
      First page: 63
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      This essay discusses colonialities of power, knowledge, being, gender, language, nature, Anglophones, and victimhood as constitutive elements of a national/global Cameroonian coloniality in Nyamnjoh’s Married but Available. I contend that the sustainability of Cameroon’s future depends on struggles against colonialities as constitutive elements of a national/global coloniality that hangs over Cameroon’s political development like the Sword of Damocles. Borrowing critical perspectives from Quijano, Grosfoguel, Maldonado-Torres, and Blaut, I assert that the emergence of colonialities of Anglophones by Francophones and Anglophones of Northwest origin by those from the Southwest have balkanized Cameroon and weakened its attempts at countering global coloniality. I conclude that for Cameroonians to nurture a sustainable political future, they need to adopt/adapt unremittingly anti-Eurocentric and anti-Francophone-centric decolonial struggles/strategies. Thus, the cosmic vision of either Francophones or Anglophones should not be taken as national Cameroonian rationality because that would amount to imposing provincialism as universalism.

  • Of vigils and vigilantes: Notes on the white witness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kathryn Bedecarré
      First page: 82
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      This ethnographic study examines what happens when white allies bear witness to Black suffering. Through participant observation of Black Lives Matter Austin vigils for African Americans killed by police (2016–2018), I found that, while bearing witness, white and non-Black allies at times centered our own pain; criminalized insurgent forms of Black dissent; and engaged in a metaphorical slipping-on of blackface, in which activists imagine ourselves occupying the Black body. My findings suggest that allies’ gestures of solidarity may lead to the unintended consolidation of anti-Blackness. I offer the framework of vigilante racial justice for considering the tenuousness of bearing witness as a practice of allyship.

      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      This essay is a commentary on Dorinne Kondo’s Worldmaking: Race, Performance, and the Work of Creativity. I consider how Kondo’s definition of worldmaking and reparative creativity can be useful concepts for anthropologists contending with the ongoing debate on anthropology’s colonial roots, postcolonial anxieties, and the abolition of the discipline. D. Soyini Madison and Erin Manning in dialog with Kondo provide a generative space to reflect on worldmaking as an anthropological endeavor, or anthropology as an act of worldmaking.

      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      A meditation on Dorinne Kondo’s Worldmaking, this essay attends to the work of reparative creativity in Kondo’s text. Revisiting Melanie Klein’s theory of reparation alongside Kondo’s rich discourse on racialization, repair, and creativity, the essay follows Kondo to insist upon a framing of reparation that attends to both its creative and destructive psychic, political, and social effects.

  • Dancing in the rain

      Authors: Dorinne Kondo
      First page: 112
      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      Worldmaking is a genre-bending ethnographic/theoretical analysis of labor and race-making in the US theater industry, grounded in Kondo’s full participation in theater as anthropologist, performance studies scholar, dramaturg and playwright. The narrative trajectory toward what Kondo calls “reparative creativity,” inspired by Kleinian theory and its appropriations in queer of color critique, grounds her analysis of the work of artists of color Anna Deavere Smith, David Henry Hwang, and her own full-length play. She disrupts the theory/ practice binary by spotlighting creative labor and race-making, and destabilizes the personal/structural divide through her concepts of “racial affect” and “affective violence.” Theater and the arts are more than second-order representation; they are zones of public existence. Kondo locates shared themes of destruction/creation, genre-bending, and embodiment/ affect/ movement as she “dances in the rain” with her interlocutors Joshua Chambers-Letson and Aimee Cox.

      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      We examine the impact of class and racial discrimination on Afro-descendant women social welfare beneficiaries in Brazil and the USA. We focus on the cities Salvador, São Paulo, Charlotte, and Milwaukee. We find that in all these cities, more than a majority of social welfare beneficiaries ate dark skinned thus showing that both countries are pigmentocracies where disadvantage is based on skin color, class, and gender. We find that of those admitting they experienced skin color discrimination more than a majority ate dark skinned. Women in the USA are generally more likely to acknowledge skin color discrimination while women in Brazil are more likely to acknowledge class based discrimination.

      Abstract: Cultural Dynamics, Ahead of Print.
      Die the Long Day narrates the 24 hours following the flight, capture, and brutal murder of Quasheba, a fugitive slave, on an 18th-century Jamaican plantation. Quasheba is remembered, retroactively, for her defiance of, despite ultimate defeat by, both the extreme gendered violence of the plantation and the paternalism of the narrative. The climax of this novel is Quasheba’s funeral, on which her community insists in accordance with their communal, African religious (Myal) rites. In these following pages I will consider how Quasheba’s spirit galvanizes this community as much as it may threaten to destroy it, and how this narrative places Obeah/Myal at the center of spiritual survival in the face of ever-present physical—and social—death during and after slavery, and at the center of strategies for the survival of its aftereffects.

      This article aims to demonstrate the documentary value of Zora Neale, Hurston’s descriptions, in her novel Seraph on the Suwanee, of the condition of the poor white US Southerners known as “crackers.” By, depicting a “cracker” woman’s upward social trajectory through, marriage, Hurston reveals the social and existential reality of this, segment of the white population. Her novel presents an objective, analysis of the crackers as a socio-historical group distinct from other, whites. However, Hurston also explores the subjective side of belonging to this discredited group by offering an account of her heroine’s experience of stigmatization.
