The Punisher: Judge, Jury, and Executioner

Edited by Matthew McEinry, Alicia Goodman, Ryan Cassidy, and Robert G. Weiner

 

With Netflix’s The Punisher being released in November 2017, it is apparent that a character like the Punisher has a certain kind of widespread appeal. The Punisher was played with great acclaim in Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 by Jon Bernthal. There were, however, three previous Punisher movies of varying quality dating back to 1989. None of the previous Punisher films did blockbuster business, although 2004’s The Punisher and The Punisher War Zone (2008) were successful on home video.

Rendering Rituals: On Memory and Memorializing

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Mardi Gras as an event, a reiteration of experience across time, and a kind of ritual renders the new and the old as occurring simultaneously: our past always directly affects our present. This temporal boundary crossing reiterates and simultaneously invokes the past in every instance. In Gender Trouble, Judith Butler describes ritual as related to the repetition of gender performance across time, which denaturalizes the concept and instantiates gender as socially constructed. What if we apply Butler’s logic of the ritual to other concepts of human experience, such as race, religion, sexuality, and disability? Orienting ourselves within this Butlerian logic, we as scholars might think about how to interpret these ritual practices in memory.

Science fiction is a genre inherently replete witha multitude of systems. From computers, robots, cyborgs and androids to human-animal studies, ecological systems, management practices and (agro-)industrial systems, science fiction has portrayed a variety of different and sometimes interlocking sets of physical systems. Ideas of knowledge generation and systematisation are also central to the genre, from the social and hard sciences, art, language and communication, right through to the systematisation and dissemination of knowledge.
