Taking Drugs Literally — Troping the Human and Turning a Phrase

A satirical post on a bulletin board in a hallway of a university arts building condemns the literary genius — citing Shakespeare, Coleridge, Yeats, Baudelaire, Poe, Hemingway, the Beats, and others — for the use of performance-enhancing drugs, proposing that we take anti-doping measures to cull the canon of those who would cheat at their craft.  Jesting aside, however, such satire points not only toward the near-ubiquity of psychotropic plant use to the literary imagination, but also to the cultural expectation placed upon the artist to trope, to turn the mind as well as the word.

Friday, September 30, 2016

In the United States, an unprecedented presidential election season is drawing to a close. For good or for ill, it has seen the arrival or return of beliefs which the neoliberal consensus had long ago dismissed as irrelevant: ideologies ranging from a vibrant socialism on the left to a frightening chauvinism on the right, and with an anti-corporate populism seemingly everywhere. To take stock of the rise of these “political heresies,” the editors of exCommunicated are looking for articles and essays that deal with the relationship of the political to the heretical, whether in the context of the current U.S. election or more broadly.
