Catherine Malabou opens Before Tomorrow (2014) with a striking yet seemingly simple question: ‘Why has the question of time lost its status as the leading question of philosophy?’ At one time, once upon a time, time led the way to the meaning of being, so why has no one ‘taken up the problem by trying to develop afresh a decisive concept of temporality?’ And, more, why does no one even ask this question anymore?

What is left of the AIDS crisis? What remains of the urgency with which critical discourses once contested dominant understandings of “AIDS”? In the first decades of the crisis, vital struggles over the meanings, definitions and representations of AIDS sought to unite cultural analysis with cultural activism. What remains now of such struggles? Has contestation become consensus?

What’s Missing in Shakespeare?
Shakespeare's plays are often complicated by what they lack. Key characters go missing from scenes or drop out of the action entirely; absent characters exert influence over those onstage; mislaid or immaterial objects are pivotal to the resolutions of plots; urgent questions are settled through silences; and plays are frequently haunted by untaken roads or abandoned plot threads. In addition, contemporary performances are shaped significantly by cuts to the script, with some scenes or characters rarely realized in performance, and some plays rarely performed at all.
