Hair as a source of a serious study and research is often trivialized and overlooked. The Foreword to the volume entitled Hair: Styling, Culture and Fashion (2008) expresses the idea that “hair [has] exciting and diverse potential as an academic topic […], so critical analysis of its practice and experience provides a fascinating and engaging entry point to contemporary debates around the body and its fashioning” (ix).  It calls for “a serious approach” to hair, as “a subject area richly deserving of new research” (ix).  Indeed, hair is an exciting field of research that recently, mostly due to the rise of fashion and hairstyles of African diaspora, has started to get more recognition.

The Materiality of the Word (NeMLA 2019)

In a letter to his friend Axel Kaun, Samuel Beckett once described the “terrible materiality of the word surface” that faces every writer as they set pen to page. Their goal, Beckett claims, is to puncture this surface, boring holes into the word so that a different materiality “lurking behind” it might seep through. When the word is filled with holes, when what is said is ineffable and indescribable, it is no longer subordinated to its representative function. Rather, the word reveals its own sense and sensuousness, its materiality entirely distinct from that of its referent. The “sounding of impossible bodies” of the voices of the dead in M.
