From the earliest traces of etchings on stone tablets to the emergence of Kindles and e-readers in contemporary society, humans have invented platforms for the creation and dissemination of text. Implicit in each textual object are the figures of the reader and writer and their differing engagement with the work. But what does it mean to be a reader or a writer, and how does each role play a part in the shaping of a text?

The interrogation of wide-ranging labor and political-economic issues has long provided cultural and literary studies with a foundational motive. Not much has been said about maintenance—at least not directly. Against modernity’s celebration of progress, development and productivity, and against neoliberal incantations of innovation and creative destruction, attending to maintenance reveals a devalorized and oft-hidden form of labor, one on which productivity happens to depend. And, against that most fundamental drive in all forms of capitalism—growth—maintenance may offer a workable alternative.
