Hopelessness

There is a widely held assumption that any intellectual or artistic labor oriented towards liberation must have the function of increasing the amount of hope in the world: that it must be motivated by hope, and must produce hope in its interlocutors. But what do we lose, and lose sight of, when hope is our sole criterion for what motivates people to action and what makes cultural production worthwhile?

If literary scholars have traditionally wielded theory, not least the legacies of ideology critique, to relate cultural production to transformations in the capitalist lifeworld, historians have long avoided political economy as a core analytic in favor of concepts like “markets” and “societies.” Since the 2008 financial crisis, historians have drawn on previous work in the areas of social, economic, business, legal, and labor history, to develop a new subfield, “history of capitalism.”

In her groundbreaking book titled Women in the Nineteenth Century, Margaret Fuller suggests a remedy for the degradation of work for women stating, “Women are the best helpers of one another” (117). Fuller’s statement has reflections in many works written at the end of the nineteenth century such as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, The Silent Partner (1871),  Alcott’s Work (18739, and Blake’s Fettered for Life (1874) all of which focus on sisterhood, solidarity, and feminine bond among women across class, race, and nationality as a survival mechanism within capitalist economy.
