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).

Neil Cocks/The University of Reading, UK
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?

In light of the current discourse surrounding the Anthropocene, and the growth of its popularity in the ecological conversation, this seminar seeks to unpack the various understandings and responses to the human-dominated geological age, specifically through the lens of the fantasy genre. The Anthropocene refers to “The Age of Man” and includes all aspects of the evolution of man, including the exploitation of resources as well as technological progress. Through its very identity, the Anthropocene question exists among the ranks of the current political and cultural crisis of the 21st century.
