In Le Surréalisme et l’après-guerre, Tristan Tzara asked:

Have we found a solution to the problems that brought about this war? Where is the end of this war, this shredded end that prolongs itself in each individual, bringing about new questions and temporary solutions and necessary but makeshift repairs and the crushing weight of pains and destructions and the gravity of wounds that are still raw? There is no war now, but there is no après-guerre yet.

Coriolanus in Focus -- NeMLA 2017 Baltimore

Shakespeare's late play Coriolanus at first glance seems to be a straightforward case of a haughty patrician whose own pride leads to his loss of stature and life—a tragedy in the classic mold. The majority opinion echoes Olivier who likened him to "a very straightforward, reactionary son of a so-and-so" whose "thoughts are not deep" and Curry who labelled him as "one of the hardest characters to like." However, interesting characters—Shakespeare raised many—resist categorizing.

Writing has been part of human history for 5,000 years, give or take a few hundred. It developed independently in more than one part of the globe which speaks to its fundamental quality as a truly human capability. And it has shaped cultures, thought processes, knowledge, and how all of these get transmitted from one person, one generation, one era to the next. Writing in a very real sense is reflexive of, and instrumental in the continuance of culture.

Lisbon, Portugal

 

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies in the past few decades. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

Roots at 40: Reflections and Remembrances

In the final week of January, 1977, the ABC miniseries Roots became the most-watched television program of all time. To the surprise of the show’s producers, Roots became not only a ratings windfall, but a cultural phenomenon, articulating an African-American counter-narrative of American history, provoking a dialogue about the legacy of slavery, and presenting African-American characters with a dignity and integrity that differed sharply from the caricatured representations common to television up to that time. In many ways, the response to the show by the media and the general public constitutes the first of many “conversations about race” that have punctuated the Post-Civil Rights era.

“If I had to choose between the Doors and Dostoyevsky, then—of course—I’d choose Dostoyevsky. But do I have to choose?” –Susan Sontag

There seems to be no end to the anxieties, fantasies, pleasures, and possibilities of pop culture—how we consume it, avoid it, appreciate it, and allow it to inform our identities. Yet, can we theorize pop today? And if so, to what extent are we obligated to do so?
