I am in the process of compiling an anthology of writing from expatriate Americans. There has already been some interest from a university press, and a number of contributors are already attached to the project. Depending on the type and number of submissions I receive, I may do this as two books: one volume as academic research and the other as creative nonfiction/ memoir.

Here’s a bit of background on the book:

"Politics and Ontology"

 

Organizer: Matthew Scully (Emerson College)

 

Politics, as that which relates to the organization of public life, and ontology, as the study of being, have long been intertwined. Left/right identity politics, for example, often ground themselves on an ontologized, or essentialized, identity. In contrast, many theorists view politics as the construction of identity. Jacques Rancière, for instance, insists that politics determines the ontological status of its subjects, rather than the reverse; no “human being” preexists the political act.

A few months ago, an Afro-Brazilian councilwoman investigating police brutality in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas was gunned down. Ballistics showed a match for the weapons used by military police. After a failed military coup in Turkey in 2016, thousands participated in overnight “Democracy Watches,” turning public squares into sites of mutual surveillance. And, in the US, nearly two decades after 9/11, the logic of the “war on terror” has spilled over into “wars” on drugs, illegal immigration, and inner-city violence.
