Monday, January 14, 2019

In 1974, in the shadow of the Vietnam War and amidst the economic and political retrenchments of post-1968, Ursula K. Le Guin published The Dispossessed. The novel’s radical innovation of the narrative utopia, with its unblinking acknowledgment of the form’s conceptual as well as practical limits, paradoxically revitalized and reactivated utopia’s uncompromising social vocation for an emphatically anti-utopian era.

Soapbox: Journal for Cultural Analysis
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Grids govern our landscapes and cityscapes, our paintings and grocery lists, our maps and our borders, both walled and imaginary. They get us our energy and water, they fuel our online social lives, and structure the ways we perceive and move through space. On the one hand, the grid is a representational mode, one of rendering the world under a Euclidean regime of points, lines, and areas. On the other, it is the material infrastructure of utilities, transit routes and architecture. In an increasingly networked control society, data, numbers, and figures are in a constant feedback loop with material reality.
