The Splendor of the Real: Disrupting The Narrative Agency of Modernism
What is the central narrative agency of Modernism? Is it mind or matter? Or is it neither? Should we anchor Modernism in the elaboration of inwardness (as we may find it in Henry James, Ford Madox Ford, James Joyce)? Or does it lean upon an implicit appeal to the sovereignty of "indifferent" Nature (for instance, in Flaubert, Conrad or Virginia Woolf)? What if modernism were seen to actualize an even more estranged notion of the Real, one that is best captured under the heading of the "Copernican" Real in Alexandre Koyré's definition, later taken over by Jacques Lacan and Jean-Claude Milner?

Recuperation is an inexorable feature of late capitalism, as modes of art and cultural expression that once were resistant, oppositional or antagonistic from the 1960's and 70's have been gradually absorbed by
capitalism and its attendant apparatus, such that a certain generation has no idea what even constitutes "political dissent" because they have never seen examples of it. Land art which once rejected the
From its flawed notion of "separate but equal" to the rampant violence against black bodies throughout the twentieth century, the United States faced a clear racial divide perpetuated by its Jim Crow culture and the disenfranchisement of blacks. In response, on August 28, 1963, noted American civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, urging radical social and political change in a society marred by a rich history of segregation and discrimination. Since then, we have recognized this speech as a symbol of the enduring struggle for equal civil rights and the pursuit of the core values upon which the United States was based.
Chapter proposals are invited for a new interdisciplinary and transnational volume focusing on the social and cultural contexts of vegetarianism throughout history. This volume will represent the first scholarly collection of essays that critically considers vegetarianism as both a worldwide phenomena and an aspect of the longue durée of history, and seeks to explain vegetarianism as a global, social, and historical continuity. Taken as a whole, the essays will provide an answer as to how and why vegetarianism has been a constant throughout human history despite continuous social challenges.
