The Anatomy of Inscription (Special Issue of Humanities)

In their 1910 essay ‘Poetic Principles’, Nikolai and David Burliuk describe poetry as ‘sensible’, arguing that the word ‘changes its qualities according to whether it is handwritten, printed or thought’. Jacques Derrida widens this claim in Of Grammatology (1967), writing that one of the ‘fundamental problems’ when coming to terms with signification is the deployment of ‘diverse forms of graphic substances (material: wood, wax, skin, stone, ink, metal, vegetable)’, as well as different kinds of styli. How do the material properties of writing feed back into its semantic sense, differing when engraved in stone or tattooed on skin?

This summer marks twenty years since J.K Rowling published her first Harry Potter novel in the U.S. Since then, readership of the novels has expanded continually; there has never been a more successful book series (450 million copies sold and counting) or a more culturally prominent literary phenomenon. “Muggle” is now in the Oxford dictionary, and still today the series holds a venerable place on the New York Times Bestseller List.

The Punisher: Judge, Jury, and Executioner

Edited by Matthew McEinry, Alicia Goodman, Ryan Cassidy, and Robert G. Weiner

 

With Netflix’s The Punisher being released in November 2017, it is apparent that a character like the Punisher has a certain kind of widespread appeal. The Punisher was played with great acclaim in Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2 by Jon Bernthal. There were, however, three previous Punisher movies of varying quality dating back to 1989. None of the previous Punisher films did blockbuster business, although 2004’s The Punisher and The Punisher War Zone (2008) were successful on home video.

Science fiction is a genre inherently replete witha multitude of systems. From computers, robots, cyborgs and androids to human-animal studies, ecological systems, management practices and (agro-)industrial systems, science fiction has portrayed a variety of different and sometimes interlocking sets of physical systems. Ideas of knowledge generation and systematisation are also central to the genre, from the social and hard sciences, art, language and communication, right through to the systematisation and dissemination of knowledge.
