(Deadline Extended) Man and the Machine: Exploring the Future of AI Literature

The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

Sacred Cultures in Politics, a collection of scholarly articles, seeks to reveal sacred and/or religious rhetoric serving as persuasive tools in the vast arena of political activism. In his Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life, Giorgio Agamben challenges religious institutions to use their persuasive powers not for priestly privilege but “to make a new possible” for humanity. In a similar spirit, this collection seeks to make transparent both the rhetorical systems and their use in local, national, regional, or global political arenas.

What cultural objects and phenomena are designated to be ugly, bad, unacceptable, and monstrous, especially in relation to gender, sexuality, disability, race, class, and caste? Whose histories are marginalized or overlooked because of their perceived bad taste, abject existence, and the taint they leave on supposedly beautiful, grand narratives of nationhood, well-being, or progress? How do kitsch, camp, and excess function in the realms of activism in contemporary politics? How do nasty, revulsive art, literature, and performances act as sites that engender questions that push boundaries of societal mores and cultural hierarchies?

The past seven years have seen a resurgence of the radical right. In this resurgence, art and literature have played a prominent role. Senior advisors to the Trump administration cited novels as specific influences on federal policy; Jordan Peterson has disguised right-wing manifestos as self-help volumes, hoodwinking young men to the tune of millions; the internet has seen an overwhelming explosion of white supremacist digital art. Walter Benjamin’s dictum that fascism seeks to “aestheticize politics” endures.

Since the fin de siècle, the ubiquity of the camera has disrupted notions of gazing at others and ourselves. Moving from the 20th century to the 21st, the camera’s gaze has taken on many overlapping and at times antagonistic roles: it archives, captures, testifies, interrogates, interrupts, imagines, distorts, exposes, imposes, and surveils.
