Recent populist movements in the U.S., U.K., and around the globe suggest that the practices and theories surrounding dissent and civil disobedience are now more relevant than ever. With the Women’s March reaching nearly five million people world-wide, sparking protests not only across the United States, but in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, Australia, and even Antarctica, it is clear that the praxis of protest will be a hallmark of this period in the twenty-first century.

In the face of the recent proliferation of the term “Anthropocene” in literary and cultural studies, how might we account for this geological epoch and its subsequent catastrophic environmental realities? As scholars of literature, we do not lack for theoretical models, both in and out of our “field.” Moreover, some of the most energetic and useful perspectives have taken up, broadly, a Marxian dialectical framework. Such perspectives include world-systems theory, ecological-materialisms, and in the field of literary studies and the humanities broadly, a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches framed under the banner of energy and/or environmental humanities.

Teaching 'Fake News'

Over the last several years, the issue of “fake news” – misleading or outright deceptive reporting designed to advance a particular agenda – has become a prominent feature of our media ecology. The Oxford Dictionary chose “post-truth” as its Word of the Year for 2016, Time Magazine ran a full-cover headline in 2017 asking the question “Is Truth Dead?,” and the term “fake news” has been employed liberally by both spokespeople for the Trump administration and its critics. The debate has particular ramifications for higher education, and particularly for instructors of Composition and Humanities classes, which generally provide college students with their most explicit training in how to evaluate sources of information.

Figural Discourse and the Moving Image

 

“Here, then, is a paradox: how can a figural discourse—invested by the forms of desire, offering the illusion of fulfillment—perform the function of truth?”

Jean-François Lyotard, Discourse, Figure, 277.

 

“Perhaps it is no more than an accident that in our two oldest examples figura occurs in combination with nova; but even if accidental, it is significant, for the notion of the new manifestation, the changing aspect, of the permanent runs through the whole history of the word.”

Erich Auerbach, “Figura,” Scenes from the Drama of European Literature, 12.
