Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

updated:

New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.

[ACLA 2018] Postcolonial Autopoiesis: Literature, Materiality, Experience

In critiquing the efforts of new materialists (Bennett, Coole and Frost, and others) to develop a concept of agency that accounts for the emergent properties of matter, Hannes Bergthaller argues that the preoccupation with blurring boundaries between human and nonhuman matter has made it difficult to draw legitimate and necessary distinctions between subjects in the world. The danger, for Bergthaller, is a kind of ethico-fatalist surrender to the contingency of matter that leaves us with no reason to preserve any species, even human beings. Bergthaller thus proposes autopoiesis — the concept of a self-limiting and self-organizing system, borrowed from biology — as a solution to the problem of limitless materiality.

“Progress means: humanity emerges from its spellbound state no longer under the spell of progress as well, itself nature, by becoming aware of its own indigenousness to nature and by halting the mastery over nature through which nature continues its mastery.” — Theodor Adorno, “Progress” (p. 62)

“This future is unthinkable. Yet here we are, thinking it.” — Timothy Morton, Dark Ecology (p. 1)
