Spring 2011 issue: Writing with Sound

Today we live in a society defined--in many senses, and by almost all the connotations associated with the word as well--by the word 'current'.... The old hierarchies of linear thought, sublime (and sublimated!) engagements with art, poetry, music, science, and history are no longer needed to do the ideological work now conducted again along the lines of 'current.'

[UPDATE] A (Post)Secular Age: Protestant Epistemologies and the American Novel - April 7-10, NEMLA 2011

Monday, September 27, 2010 - 12:28pm

Post-secular critics are currently challenging the theory that the rise of historical empiricism, as a mode of thought, replaced religious belief and praxis. According to theorist Benedict Anderson, the seventeenth century ushered in a break between a religious cosmology and history, creating a need to link fraternity, power, and time in new ways. Nationalism, an ideology that links subjective identity to a history unfolding in "homogeneous, empty time," filled this need. New literary genres like the novel presented stories that occurred in the time and space of the nation, offering readers a means of identifying as members of a community with a common, secular history.
