Table of Contents

TheHouseof EarlySorrows A Memoir in Essays Louise DeSalvo The House of Early Sorrows is a stunning collection of Louise DeSalvo?s significant and award-winning essays, many of which have been revised to contain new material. She reframes and revises these memoiristic pieces that were the seeds of longer collections, to reveal her true power as a memoirist: the ability to dig ever deeper for personal and political truths that illuminate what it means to be a woman, a child of Italian immigrants, a writer, and a scholar. Louise DeSalvo is Jenny Hunter Professor of Creative Writing at Hunter College and the author of several books, including Virginia Woolf, Vertigo, and The Art of Slow Writing.

DeliriousNaples A Cultural History of the City of the Sun Stanislao G. Pugliese and Pellegrino D?Acierno, Editors Difficult to understand, Naples is an enigma to outsiders, and also to the Neapolitans themselves. Its very impenetrableness is what makes it so deliriously and irresistibly attractive. A stellar cast of Neapolitan and American scholars, intellectuals, and artists/writers wrestle with and illuminate the paradoxes through which Naples presents itself. The essays attempt to give some hints to the answer of the enigma, without parsing it into neat scholastic formulae. In doing this, the book will be an important means of opening Naples to students, scholars, and members of the community at large who are engaged in ?identity-work.? A primary goal has been to establish a dialogue with leading Neapolitan intellectuals and artists and, ultimately, ensure that the ?deliriously Neapolitan? dance continues.

Napoli / New York / Hollywood investigates the work of Italian immigrant performers and the impact of the traditions of the Italian stage within the history of Hollywood cinema and of American media from 1895 to today. The book discusses the historical context and institutional film history, from the perspective of the performers? the workers, who lend their bodies and their performance culture to screen representations. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the book associates southern Italian culture with modernity and the immigrants?preservation of cultural traditions with innovations in the mode of production and in the use of media technologies. It deeply revises the relation between fascism and American cinema, and Italian emigration. The book examines the careers of those Italian performers who not only were born in Italy or were of Italian descent but who came either from the immigrant or the Italian stage, in order to be able to credit their influence on a cultural level. Giuliana Muscio is Professor in the History of Cinema at the University of Padova, Italy.

TheWatchdogStill Barks How Accountability Reporting Evolved for the Digital Age Beth Knobel Perhaps no other function of a free press is as important as the watchdog role? its ability to monitor the work of the government. It is easier for politicians to get away with abusing power, wasting public funds, and making poor decisions if the press is not shining its light with what is termed ?accountability reporting.? This need has become especially clear in recent months, as the American press has come under direct attack for carrying out its watchdog duties. This book presents a study of how this most important form of journalism came of age in the digital era at American newspapers. Based on the first content analysis to focus specifically on accountability journalism nationally, The Watchdog Still Barks examines the front pages of nine newspapers, located across the United States, for clues on how papers addressed the watchdog role as the Internet transformed journalism.

TheLast Professors The Corporate University and the Fate of the Humanities, With a New Introduction Frank Donoghue In this provocative book, Frank Donoghue shows how the growing corporate culture of higher education threatens its most fundamental values by erasing one of its defining features: the tenured professor. Taking a clear-eyed look at American higher education over the past twenty years, Donoghue outlines a web of forces? social, political, and institutional? dismantling the professoriate. Today, fewer than 30 percent of college and university teachers are tenured or on tenure tracks, and signs point to a future where professors will disappear. Why? What will universities look like without professors? Who will teach? Why should it matter? There are no quick fixes in The Last Professors; rather, Donoghue offers his fellow teachers and scholars an essential field guide to making their way in a world that no longer has room for their dreams. This revised edition includes a new, substantial Preface that elaborates on recent developments and offers tough but productive analysis that will be crucial for today?s academics to heed. 224 pages 9780823279135, Paper, $25.00

Freud?sJawandOther Lost Objects Fractured Subjectivity in the Face of Cancer Lana Lin

224 pages, 19 black and white illustrations 9780823277728, Paper, $30.00

What does it mean to live with life-threatening illness? How does one respond to loss? Freud?s Jaw and Other Lost Objects attempts to answer these questions and, as such, illuminates the vulnerabilities of the human body and how human beings suffer harm. In particular, it examines how cancer disrupts feelings of bodily integrity and agency. Employing psychoanalytic theory and literary analysis, Lana Lin tracks three exemplary figures: psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, poet Audre Lorde, and literary and queer theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. Freud?s sixteen-year ordeal with a prosthetic jaw, the result of oral cancer, demonstrates the powers and failures of prosthetic objects in warding off physical and psychic fragmentation. Lorde?s life writing reveals how losing a breast to cancer is experienced as yet another attack directed toward her racially and sexually vilified body. Sedgwick?s memoir and breast-cancer advice column negotiate her morbidity by disseminating a public discourse of love and pedagogy. Freud?s Jaw and Other Lost Objects asks what are the psychic effects of surviving in proximity to one?s mortality, and it suggests that violences stemming from social, cultural, and biological environments condition the burden of injury. Lana Lin is Associate Professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School, New York.

LatinxLiteratureUnbound Undoing Ethnic Expectation Ralph E. Rodriguez Since the 1990s, there has been unparalleled growth in the literary output from an ever more diverse group of Latina/o writers. The extant criticism, however, has yet to catch up with the diversity of writers we label Latinx and the range of themes about which they write. Little sustained scholarly attention has been paid, moreover, to the very category? Latinx? under which we group this literature. Latinx Literature Unbound, thus, begins with a fundamental question: ?What does it mean to label a work of literature or an entire corpus of literature Latinx?? Latinx Literature Unbound argues that there may be more salubrious taxonomies than Latinx for organizing and analyzing this literature. Following a neo-formalist interpretive model that privileges reading as a temporal, meaning-making event, the book argues that genre may be a more durable category for analyzing this literature. Finally, Latinx Literature Unbound suggests some ways in which we might want to proceed as we move forward with future studies of the writing we have come to identify as Latinx. 200 pages 9780823279241, Paper, $30.00

Religionof theFieldNegro On Black Secularism and Black Theology Vincent W. Lloyd In Religion of the Field Negro, Vincent W. Lloyd advances black theology immodestly, privileging the perspective of African Americans and employing a distinctively theological analysis. Religion of the Field Negro brings together vibrant scholarly conversations that have remained at a distance from one another until now. Weaving theological sources, critical theory, and cultural analysis, this book offers new answers to pressing questions about race and justice, love and hope, theorizing and organizing, and the role of whites in black struggle. The insights of James Cone are developed together with those of James Baldwin, Sylvia Wynter, and Achille Mbembe, all in the service of developing a political-theological vision that motivates us to challenge the racist paradigms of white supremacy.

Racial Worldmaking The Power of Popular Fiction Mark C. Jerng Racial Worldmaking argues that we do not just see race. We are taught when, where, and how to notice race by a set of narrative and interpretive strategies. As Mark C. Jerng shows us, these strategies find their most powerful expression in popular genre fiction: science fiction, romance, and fantasy. Taking up the work of H. G. Wells, Margaret Mitchell, Samuel Delany, Philip K. Dick, and others, Racial Worldmaking rethinks racial formation in relation to both African American and Asian American studies, as well as how scholars have addressed the relationships between literary representation and racial ideology. In doing so, it engages the questions: In what ways do we participate in racist worlds, and how can we imagine and build one that is anti-racist?

PoetryandMind Tractatus Poetico-Philosophicus Laurent Dubreuil What one cannot compute, one must poetize: This essay theorizes the extraordinary regimes of human mental experience by putting the emphasis on poetry. Poetry grants us the ability to move ?beyond the limits of thought? and to explore the beyond of cognition. It teaches us to think differently. An elliptic response to Wittgenstein?s point of arrival in the Tractatus, this book is first and foremost an interdisciplinary study of poetry, drawing on literary theory, philosophy, and cognitive science. The literary scope of Poetry and Mind is more than ?global?; it is uniquely broad and comparative, encompassing dozens of different traditions, oral or written, from all continents, from Ancient times to the contemporary era, with some thirty specific readings of texts, ranging from Sophocles to Gertrude Stein, from Wang Wei to AimĂŠ CĂŠsaire, or from cuneiform tablet to rap music.

Last Things Disastrous Form from Kant to Hujar Jacques Khalip With the ?arrival? of the so-called era of the Anthropocene, certain contemporary theoretical approaches have led us to think that we are only now properly beginning to speculate on an inhuman world that is not for us, as well as confronting our fears and anxieties around ecological, political, social, and philosophical extinction. Reflections on apocalypse and disaster, however, were not foreign to what we historically call romanticism, but in Last Things, Jacques Khalip begins with the ?end of things? differently, treating lastness otherwise than either a privation or a conclusion. Without fear, foreshadowing, or catastrophe, Khalip explores lastness as a form, structure, or unit that marks the limits of our life and world, and he reads the fate of romanticism (and romantic studies) within the key of the last. Shuttling between different temporalities, Last Things undertakes an original reorganization of romantic thought for contemporary culture. It examines an ?archive? that is on the side of disappearance, perishing, the inhuman, and lastness.

MonkeyTrouble The Scandal of Posthumanism Christopher Peterson The human has become a conspicuous blind spot for many theorists seeking to extend hospitality to animals, plants, and even insentient things. The displacement of the human is essential and urgent, yet given the humanist presumption that animals lack a number of allegedly unique human capacities, such as language, reason, and awareness of mortality, we ought to remain cautious about laying claim to any power to eradicate anthropocentrism altogether. Monkey Trouble argues that the turn toward immanence in contemporary posthumanism promotes a cosmocracy that absolves one from engaging in those discriminatory decisions that condition hospitality as such. Anthropocentrism, Peterson argues, cannot be displaced through a logic of reversal that elevates immanence above transcendence, horizontality over verticality. This decentering must cultivate instead a human/nonhuman relationality that affirms the immanent transcendency spawned by our phantasmatic humanness. 168 pages, 6 black-and-white illustrations 9780823277803, Paper, $28.00

In the current age, where democratic and egalitarian ideals have preeminence, Eastern Orthodox Christianity, among other hierarchically organized religious traditions, faces the challenging questions: ?Why is hierarchy maintained as the model of organizing the church, and what are the theological justifications for its persistence?? These questions are especially significant for historically and contemporarily understanding how Orthodox Christians negotiate their spiritual ideals with the challenges of their social and ecclesiastical realities. To critically address these questions, this book offers four case studies of historically disparate Byzantine theologians from the sixth to the fourteenth centuries? Dionysius the Areopagite, Maximus the Confessor, Niketas Stethatos, and Nicholas Cabasilas? who significantly reflect on the relationship between spiritual authority, power, and hierarchy in theoretical, liturgical, and practical contexts. Ashley M. Purpura is Assistant Professor in Religious Studies at Purdue University.

Other Others The Political after the Talmud Sergey Dolgopolski Denying recognition or even existence to certain others, while still tolerating diversity, stabilizes a political order; or does it? Revisiting this classical question of political theory, the book turns to the Talmud. That late ancient body of text and thought displays a new concept of the political, and thus a new take on the question of excluded others. Philosophy- and theology-driven approaches to the concept of the political have tacitly elided a concept of the political which the Talmud displays; yet, that elision becomes noticeable only by a methodical rereading of the pages of the Talmud through and despite the lens of contemporary competing theological and philosophical theories of the political. Other Others intervenes both to the study of the Talmud and Jewish thought in its aftermath, and to political theory in general.

GeorgesdeLaTour andtheEnigmaof the Visible Dalia Judovitz Not rediscovered until the twentieth century, the works of Georges de La Tour retain an aura of mystery. At first sight, his paintings suggest a veritable celebration of light and the visible world, but this is deceptive. The familiarity of visual experience blinds the beholder to a deeper understanding of the meanings associated with vision and the visible in the early modern period. By exploring the representations of light, vision, and the visible in La Tour?s works, this interdisciplinary study examines the nature of painting and its artistic, religious, and philosophical implications. La Tour?s emphasis on spiritual insight opens up broader artistic and conceptual reflections on the conditions of possibility of the pictorial medium. In the scrutiny of what is seen and how, and in the questioning of the position of the beholder, his works revitalize critical discussion of the nature of painting and its engagements with the visible world.

Derridaafter theEndof Writing Political Theology and New Materialism Clayton Crockett What are we to make of Jacques Derrida?s famous claim that ?every other is every other,? if the other could also be an object, a stone, or an elementary particle? Derrida?s philosophy is relevant not just to human ethical language and animality but also to profound developments in the physical and natural sciences, as well as ecology. Derrida after the End of Writing argues for the importance of reading Derrida?s later work from a new materialist perspective. In conversation with Heidegger, Lacan, and Deleuze, and critically engaging newer philosophies of speculative realism and object-oriented ontology, Crockett claims that Derrida was never a linguistic idealist. Here is a new reading of Derrida that moves beyond conventional understandings of poststructuralism and deconstruction, a reading that is responsive to and critical of some of the crucial developments shaping the humanities today. 200 Pages 9780823277841, Paper, $28.00 Perspectives in Continental Philosophy

Eco-Deconstruction Derrida and Environmental Philosophy Matthias Fritsch, Philippe Lynes, and David Wood, Editors Eco-Deconstruction: Derrida and Environmental Philosophy launches a new mode of philosophical and ethical reflection with respect to the challenges posed by the degradation of the natural environment, including habitat loss, species extinction, and climate change. While the work of French philosopher Jacques Derrida (1930?2004), with its relentless interrogation of the anthropocentric metaphysics of presence, has already proven highly influential in posthumanism and animal studies, the present volume, drawing on published and unpublished work by Derrida and others, builds on these insights in addressing and responding to the most pressing environmental issues of our time. The volume brings together fifteen scholars, many of whom have achieved world renown, from a wide variety of related fields, including eco-phenomenology, eco-hermeneutics, new materialism, posthumanism, animal studies, vegetal philosophy, science and technology studies, environmental humanities, eco-criticism, earth art and aesthetics, and analytic environmental ethics. 334 pages, 2 black-and-white illustrations 9780823279517, Paper, $35.00 Groundworks: Ecological Issues in Philosophy and Theology

Liturgical Theologyafter Schmemann An Orthodox Reading of Paul Ricoeur Brian A. Butcher, Foreword by Andrew Louth, FBA

336 pages 9780823278756, Paper, $45.00 Orthodox Christianity and Contemporary Thought

While only rarely reflecting on liturgy, French philosopher Paul Ricoeur (1913?2005) gave sustained attention to several themes pertinent to the interpretation of worship, including metaphor, narrative, subjectivity, and memory. Inspired by his well-known aphorism ?The symbol gives rise to thought,? Liturgical Theology after Schmemann offers an exploration of the symbolic world of the Byzantine Rite, culminating in a Ricoeurian analysis of its Theophany ?Great Blessing of Water.? The book examines two fundamental questions: (1) What are the implications of the philosopher?s oeuvre for liturgical theology at large? and (2) How does the adoption of a Ricoeurian hermeneutic shape the study of a particular rite? Taking the legacy of Orthodox theologian Alexander Schmemann as its point of departure, Butcher contributes to the renewal of contemporary Eastern Christian thought by engaging a spectrum of current theological and philosophical conversations. Brian A. Butcher is Assistant Professor in the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies at the University of St. Michael?s College, in the University of Toronto.

PlatoandtheInventionof Life Michael Naas Though the question of life (whether bios or z??) is not the explicit focus of any Platonic dialogue, it is, this book argues, an absolutely central and structuring question for all of Plato?s thought. This is nowhere more evident than in the Statesman, where the central myth of the two ages sketches out two very different kinds and valences of life and being. Plato and the Invention of Life offers a reading of Plato?s Statesman in order to ask about the question of life and being in Plato?s thought more generally. By characterizing being in terms of life, Plato in many of his later dialogues, including the Statesman, begins to discover? or, better, to invent? a notion of true or real life that would be opposed to all merely biological or animal life, a form of life that would be more valuable than everything we call life and every life that can actually be lived. Michael Naas is Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago.

TheForgivenesstoCome The Holocaust and the Hyper-Ethical Peter Banki Banki argues that, while forgiveness of the Holocaust is and will remain impossible, we cannot rest upon that impossibility. Rather, the impossibility of forgiveness must be thought in another way. Accompanied by Jacques Derrida?s thought of forgiveness of the unforgivable, Banki undertakes close readings of literary, philosophical, and cinematic texts that contend with the idea that the crimes of the Nazis are inexpiable, that they lie beyond any possible atonement or repair. Banki argues that the juridical concept of crimes against humanity calls for a thought of forgiveness? one that would not imply closure of the infinite wounds of the past. How could such a forgiveness be thought or dreamed? Banki shows that if today we cannot simply escape the ?worldwidization? of forgiveness, then it is necessary to rethink what forgiveness is, the conditions under which it supposedly takes place, and especially its relation to justice. 208 pages 9780823278657, Paper, $28.00 Just Ideas: Transformative Ideals of Justice in Ethical and Political Thought

StasisbeforetheState Nine Theses on Agonistic Democracy Dimitris Vardoulakis

168 pages, 5 × 7½ 9780823277407, Paper, $25.00 Commonalities

11

This book critiques the relation between sovereignty and democracy. Across nine theses, Vardoulakis argues that sovereignty asserts its power by establishing exclusions: the sovereign excluding other citizens from power and excluding refugees and immigrants from citizenship. Within this structure, to resist sovereignty is to reproduce the logic of exclusion characteristic of sovereignty. In contrast to this ?ruse of sovereignty,? Vardoulakis proposes an alternative model for political change. He argues that democracy can be understood as the structure of power that does not rely on exclusions and whose relation to sovereignty is marked not by exclusion but by incessant agonism. The term stasis, which refers both to the state and to revolution against it, offers a tension that helps to show how the democratic imperative is presupposed by the logic of sovereignty, and how agonism is more primary than exclusion. In elaborating this ancient but only recently recovered concept of stasis, Vardoulakis illustrates the radical potential of democracy to move beyond the logic of exclusion and the ruse of sovereignty. Dimitris Vardoulakis is Associate Professor and deputy chair of philosophy at Western Sydney University.
