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.

One of the most obvious examples may be the ways in which place is archival in post-9/11 literatures, but this panel welcomes varied and original interpretations of place as archive.
