Aestheticizing Politics/Politicizing Aesthetics: St. Louis Symposium on Radicalism in U.S. Arts

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.

In July 2023, a tech startup called “Simulation Inc” released an AI technology that the company claims will make it possible to generate entire t.v. episodes—including dialogue, voice acting, animation, and editing—from nothing more than a two-sentence prompt. Somewhat oddly—and provoking suspicion that the project might be a hoax or internet prank—Simulation Inc’s website lists a fake address under their contact info: 500 Baudrillard Drive, San Francisco, CA.

Cinephile 18.1 – (Un)recovering Lost Futures

The late cultural theorist Mark Fisher asks, “how long can a culture persist without the new?” For Fisher, the postmodern future under capitalist realism, “harbours only reiteration and re-permutation” (6-7). In capitalism’s inability to look beyond itself, media culture has become excessively nostalgic and “incapable of generating any authentic novelty” (63). Accordingly, one can observe a certain malaise surrounding media’s inability to imagine new and alternative futures.

From North Carolina Out: Charles Olson, Black Mountain Poetics, and the Later Years

Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2024

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Chicago, May 23-26. This year, the Society is interested in abstracts that examine the later periods of Black Mountain Poetry. After the closure of Black Mountain College, the liquidation of the property in 1957, and the folding of the Black Mountain Review in the same year, poets like Olson, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, Ed Dorn, and Larry Eigner had to find new centers of community where they could continue the advances of their experimental poetics. Gloucester, Buffalo, San Francisco, New York, Boston, and New Mexico – different locales became important for fostering exchange for these poets.

Jazz and American Poetics: From The New American Poetry to Contemporary Verse

Friday, January 26, 2024

The Charles Olson Society and the Amiri Baraka Society will co-sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Chicago, May 23-26. This year, our two societies are pleased to announce a collaboration around the theme of jazz and its relation to the development of experimental American poetry. As Charles Olson once stated in a series of talks titled “On Black Mountain”: “Boy, there was no poetics. It was Charlie Parker. Literally, it was Charlie Parker.” Olson was thinking back to his 1950s correspondence with Robert Creeley, who consistently wrote to Olson about the importance of Parker’s bop rhythms for his own poetics. In the talk, Olson equates the entirety of the New American Poetry with just Charlie Parker.

Rhetoric After Identification

Edited by David R. Gruber (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) & Jason Kalin (DePaul University)

 

Rhetorical identification seeks a common ground of existence in which divided individuals can mediate their differences. Perhaps, for this reason, either explicitly or implicitly, identification has become a commonplace of rhetorical theory and criticism. As Diane Davis (2010) writes, “Identification is not simply rhetoric’s most fundamental aim; it’s also and therefore rhetorical theory’s most fundamental problem” (p. 33). Any rhetoric, it seems, must pass through rhetorical identification.
