The Anthology of Babel

Imprint:

FORTHCOMING Summer 2018

Why should there only be literary scholarship about authors who actually lived, and texts which exist? Where are the articles on Enoch Campion, Linus Withold, Zelda Calhoun, Redondo Panza, Darshan Singh, or Heidi B. Morton? That none of these are real authors should be no impediment to interpreting their invented writings. In the first collection[…]

Disrupting the Digital Humanities

FORTHCOMING Winter 2017/2018

All too often, defining a discipline becomes more an exercise of exclusion than inclusion. Disrupting the Digital Humanities seeks to rethink how we map disciplinary terrain by directly confronting the gatekeeping impulse of many other so-called field-defining collections. What is most beautiful about the work of the Digital Humanities is exactly the fact that it[…]

Trouble Songs: A Musicological Poetics

FORTHCOMING Winter 2017/2018

Trouble Songs is a hybrid serial work that tracks, dramatizes, and explores the appearance of the word trouble in 20th- and 21st-century American music. It reads (and sings) particular songs and poems, with reference to cultural events ranging from the death of a pop singer to the growth of popular resistance movements. The trouble singer invokes[…]

Echoes of No Thing: Thinking between Heidegger and Dōgen

FORTHCOMING Spring 2018

Echoes of No Thing seeks to understand the space between thinking which Martin Heidegger and Eihei Dōgen enunciate in their writing and teachings. Heidegger most clearly attempts this in Contributions to Philosophy (of the Event) and Dōgen, the 13th-century Zen patriarch, does this in his Shōbōgenzō, a collection of fascicles which he compiled in his[…]

Rhetorical Agency

FORTHCOMING Summer 2017

In recent accounts of rhetoric’s storied productivity, commentators have implied, along systematically Kantian lines, albeit with the occasional protestation, that agency must be coextensive with subjectivity. But is that all there is (to 2,500 years’ worth of hypothesizing about the ways in which communication might promote social change)? Les Belikian’s answer, drawing not only on[…]

The Pedagogics of Liberation: A Latin American Philosophy of Education

FORTHCOMING Autumn 2017

Enrique Dussel is considered one of the founding philosophers of liberation in the Latin American tradition, an influential arm of what is now called decoloniality. While he is astoundingly prolific, relatively few of his works can be found in English translation—and none of these focus specifically on education. Founding members of the Latin American Philosophy[…]

Covert Plants: Vegetal Consciousness and Agency in an Anthropocentric World

Imprint:

FORTHCOMING Autumn 2017

Covert Plants contributes to newly emerging discourses on the implications of vegetal life for the arts and culture. This stretches to changes in our perception of ‘nature’ and to the adapting roles of botany, evolutionary ecology, and environmental aesthetics in the humanities. Its editors and contributors seek various expressions of vegetal life rather than the[…]

Manifesto for a Post-Critical Pedagogy

FORTHCOMING Fall 2017

The belief in the transformative potential of education has long underpinned critical educational theory. But its concerns have also been largely political and economic, using education as the means to achieve a better – or ideal – future state: of equality and social justice. Our concern is not whether such a state can be realized.[…]
