Dad bods. Father knows best. Cats in the Cradle. Father of the Bride. The embarrassing dad. The absent father. There is no shortage of clichés, stereotypes, cultural representations, tropes, and ideas about dads. There is not, however, a significant body of academic writing on dads.
The crisis and collapse of Marxism as the dominant paradigm of left intellectual thought undoubtedly remains one of the most seismic shifts in the ideological history of the late twentieth century. With the collapse of actually existing socialism in the Soviet Union, the pressure of postmodern concepts, and the rise of new social protest movements in the spheres of race, gender, and sexual orientation, Marxism came to appear the ‘signifier par excellence of theoretical hubris, redundancy and error’ (Pendakis and Szeman, 2014). In the twenty-first century however, precipitated by the succession of economic and ecological crisis scenarios, Marxist criticism has experienced a critical resurgence.
