(Bio)politics, affects, and emotions in literature and performance since WWII

The conception of biopolitics and the constitution of biopolitical power have become increasingly important for the study of political science, especially in the wake of one of the biggest shifts in population in modern history. Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Michel Foucault and the consequent development of this problematic in a variety of theoretical schools, political scientists have started addressing rationalities of power that go beyond traditional sovereign-territorial logics. Indeed, political categories such as that of population are now treated as affective structures. Affects have entered the extended definition of the political, investigated both as unmeasurable forces and as discreet emotions.

X Marks the Spot: Lyric Chiasmus and Chiastic Lyrics

For a moment in time, a generation ago, apostrophe became for some scholars the embodiment of the lyric gesture itself. In Jonathan Culler’s words, apostrophe signals “not a moment in a temporal sequence but a now of discourse, of writing,” typified by the poetic “O.” Long the neglected step-sibling of lyric apostrophe, chiasmus (“a crosswise placing” from the Greek letter chi) embodies the boustrophedonic turns of repetition and reversal, which also might be seen at the heart of the lyric. Where apostrophe involves a turning away to address an absent person, thing, or idea, chiasmus seems to turn inward—to sound, form, image.

Turning to the artistically fruitful “wrong” of unrequited love as imagined by George Herbert, Seamus Heaney redresses the utter capriciousness of the art: “I want to profess the surprise of poetry as well as its reliability; I want to celebrate its given, unforeseeable thereness, the way it enters our field of vision and animates our physical and intelligent being….” Poets and writers, artists and musicians have all celebrated the error as evoking the unforeseen possibilities of their craft. (One might be reminded of Elizabeth Bishop’s “Man-Moth.”) Why ought the reader be excluded from the joy, the new knowledges, and the potential political subversiveness of the mistaken reading?

In today’s global landscape, the category of the “human” has assumed a principal position not simply in terms of its ontological centrality but also in relation to surrounding nonhuman worlds. At stake are questions ranging from the impact of humans on the biosphere (the Anthropocene) to their involvement in the virtual world (Knowledge Commons and Ergodicity) to their experiences of the “inner life” of things (Object-oriented ontology and Affect Theory) to the ethical politics over the Other (the terrorist, the refugee, the queer).
