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).

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.

Overpopulation has become the ‘third rail’ of contemporary environmentalism: no major organization wants to touch the issue anymore. While it had been one of the driving concerns of early environmentalism up until the 1970s, exemplified by such seminal texts as Fairfield Osborn’s Our Plundered Planet (1948), Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb (1968), and the Club of Rome’s The Limits of Growth (1972), concern with population control has since dropped off the list of popular environmentalist causes.
