In an episode of a British TV series Black Mirror called “Crocodile, set some time in a near future, memories, both human and nonhuman, become recordable and viewable on a simple, portable device. This unassuming gadget seals the future of the protagonist—a murderer—who, while eliminating all human witnesses to her crime, forgets the nonhuman witness, a guinea pig, whose memory the police is then able to view to promptly identify the suspect. In the 2017 Blade Runner, androids have childhood memories that they know to be fake, implanted by the manufacturer. In turn, cli fi and environmentalist writers inscribe elements, such as water, air, soil, or dust, as memory devices, creating nonhuman archives for posterity.

Lenin 2020 

Editors: Alla Ivanchikova and Robert Maclean 

Abstracts due: October 31, 2018 

This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?
