Judith Butler’s Notes Toward a Performative Theory of Assembly (2015) might best be illustrated as a treatise on the political, social, and ethical stakes—drawing from moral philosophy’s elementary question ‘how best to live?’—of the conditions of livable life. Butler writes, “it may be that the question of how to live a good life depends upon having the power to lead a life as well as the sense of having a life, or indeed, the sense of being alive” (212). In a similar vein, evoking Achille Mbembe’s deployment of the necropolitical, the chasms between rich and poor, human and non-human, citizen and non-citizen, the sovereign, “define[s] who matters and who does not, who is disposable and who is not” (27).

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 12, 2018

We welcome early expressions of interest for this one-day conference will take place at The University Reading, UK in Fall 2018. More details to be posted soon.

Email Dr. Neil Cocks at n.h.cocks@reading.ac.uk

Presentations will be of either 20 or 40 minutes duration. Although the conference is primarily concerned with literature, any approach to Ayn Rand from the Left is welcome.

ABOUT: 

Literary criticism on the Left has ignored Ayn Rand. Why engage work that is clearly so politically irredeemable? Especially when it is also so vulgar, so confused, so…silly?

Call for Chapter Proposals (due 9/15/17): Edited Collection, The Material Culture of Writing

Cydney Alexis and Hannah Rule, editors

Deadline for Chapter Proposals: September 15, 2017

We invite proposals for chapter contributions to an edited collection on the material culture of writing. In particular, we are interested in work on the nature, histories, and roles of writing objects, read through a material culture studies (MCS) and consumer research lens. By putting MCS into conversation with writing and rhetorical studies, this collection aims to magnify the focus on the material things that sustain writerly acts and identities.
