Dear Friends, I am delighted to share with you our Spring 2018 catalog with the #LookItUP graphic boldly displayed on the cover. This decision made by the Marketing Department was a way to maintain the successful momentum achieved during this past University Press (UP) Week, November 6-11, when we used this as our theme accompanied by the term “Knowledge Matters.” I have been on the UP Week task force for the past three years, the last two as chairperson. This was by far our most successful campaign. The topic of expertise resonated with people and received strong support from a wide spectrum of stakeholders including independent booksellers, major wholesalers, and the publishing media. The standing-room only panels at the major city book festivals tied to the importance of university press publishing and its commitment to vetted expertise. The nationwide indies’ first campaign, and the promotions and curated lists at regional trade shows were all initiatives that helped us to accomplish our mission of reaching beyond our community and attracting core constituents in creative and collaborative ways. On social media we saw a spike in awareness: 24 million impressions across the three hashtags #ReadUP, #UPWeek, and #LookItUP. This not only is a testament to the popularity of the campaign but proves that promoting the UP world to a broader audience tied to political, cultural, and social awareness is an important and useful endeavor and a tool for advocacy for our parent institutions. Briefly, I’d like tell you about some new initiatives at FUP. First, check out our brand new website at fordhampress.com. It looks modern and clean and has a much faster search capability. We are excited to have this new digital face of the Press to show off to our readers and potential authors. See page 15 for the announcement about the Press’s new series Polis: Fordham Series in Urban Studies, focusing on digital works in both full-length monographs and essay-length pieces focusing on topics with global resonance. This spring the first two digital essays will publish: The Real Fake looks at a British themed-village in China and Zonas Peligrosas explores the challenge of creating safe environments in El Salvador. Stay tuned for more ebooks from Polis offering innovative and unique explorations in urban studies scholarship. As of July 1, 2017, we are being distributed by Ingram (Two Rivers). FUP is thrilled to be represented by a super client-relations team and have the power of seasoned and creative sales reps to champion our books. With our digital assets already managed by CoreSource, this arrangement made perfect sense. We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership. Last, we changed our internal database from FileMaker to Virtusales so that internal and external systems were compatible and the flow of data from one to the other would be much less cumbersome and require minimal manual intervention. After a few glitches, we are operating at full speed. The year 2017 certainly brought about many changes at the Press, but we are confident that they will allows us to operate more efficiently and continue publishing boundary-breaking books that make a difference and prove that facts do matter. Here’s to a happy and successful New Year. #LookItUP.

“A lyrical, moving collection. DeSalvo performs a complex inquiry that examines the personal, familial, social, ethnic, and historical dimensions of identity. We realize we are not reading to find out about DeSalvo’s life and times, but our own.” — RI CHA RD HO FFMA N , Half the House: a Memoir

The House of Early Sorrows

As the child of children of immigrants, Louise DeSalvo was at first reluctant to write about her truths. Her abusive father, her sister’s suicide, her illness. In this stunning collection of her captivating and frank essays on her life and her Italian American culture, Louise DeSalvo centers on her beginnings, reframing and revising her acclaimed memoiristic essays, 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 second-generation American, a writer, and a scholar. Each essay is driven by a complex inquiry that examines the personal, familial, social, ethnic, and historical dimensions of identity. Collectively, they constitute a story significantly different from DeSalvo’s memoirs when they were first published, where the starkness of their meaning became blunted by the material surrounding them. DeSalvo has also restored material written and then deleted—experiences she was too reticent to reveal before, in writing about her sister’s suicide, her husband’s adultery, her own sexual assault. The essays also include new material to shift the ballast of an essay as her life has changed significantly through the years. The House of Early Sorrows is a courageous exploration of not only the DeSalvos’ family life and times, but also of our own. LOU ISE DESALVO started the MFA in Memoir Program at Hunter College, where she held the Jenny Hunter Endowed Chair for Literature and Creative Writing until her retirement in 2017. She is the author of several books, including Virginia Woolf, Vertigo, and The Art of Slow Writing.

The high cost of building affordable housing in New York, and in cities like it, has long been a topic of urgent debate. Yet despite its paramount importance and the endless work of public and private groups to find ways to provide it, affordable housing continues to be an elusive commodity in New York City—and increasingly so in our current economic and political climate. In a timely, captivating memoir, Carol Lamberg weighs in on this vital issue with the lessons she learned and the successes she won while working with the Settlement Housing Fund, where she was executive director from 1983 until 2014. Lamberg provides a unique perspective on the great changes that have swept the housing arena since the curtailment of the welfare state in the 1970s and spells out what is needed to address today’s housing problems. In a tradition of “big city” social work memoirs stretching back to Jane Addams, Lamberg reflects on the social purpose, vision, and practical challenges of the projects she’s been involved in, while vividly capturing the life and times of those who engaged in the creation and maintenance of housing and those who have benefited from it. Using a wealth of interviews with managers and residents alike, alongside the author’s firsthand experiences, this book depicts examples of successful community development between 1975 and 1997 in the Bronx and on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In the “West Bronx Story,” Lamberg details the painful but ultimately exhilarating development of eighteen buildings that make up New Settlement Apartments—a dramatic transformation of a devastated neighborhood into a thriving community. In “A Tale of Two Bridges,” the author depicts a different path to success, along with its particular challenges. The redevelopment of this area on the Lower East Side involved six different federal housing programs and consisted of six residential sites, a running track, and a large-scale supermarket. To this day, forty years later, all the buildings remain strong. In Neighborhood Success Stories, Lamberg offers a roadmap to making affordable housing a reality with the key ingredients of dogged persistence, group efforts, and creative coalition building. Her powerful memoir provides hope and practical encouragement in times that are more challenging than ever. CAROL LAMBE RG was executive director of the Settlement Housing Fund from 1983 until she retired in 2014.

Counter Institution

Activist Estates of the Lower East Side NANDI NI B AGCHE E

In the midst of current debates about the accessibility of public spaces, resurfacing as a result of highly visible demonstrations and occupations, this book illuminates an overlooked domain of civic participation: the office, workshop, or building where activist groups meet to organize and plan acts of political dissent and collective participation. Nandini Bagchee examines three repurposed buildings on the Lower East Side that have been used by activists to launch actions over the past forty years. The Peace Pentagon was the headquarters of the antiwar movement, El Bohio was a metaphoric “hut” that envisioned the Puerto Rican community as a steward of the environment, and ABC No Rio, appropriated from a storefront sign with missing letters, was a catchy punk name that appealed to the anarchistic sensibility of the artists who ran a storefront gallery in a run-down tenement. In a captivating discussion of buildings and urban settings as important components of progressive struggles in New York City over more than a century, Bagchee reveals how these collectively organized spaces have provided a venue for political participation while existing as a vital part of the city’s civic infrastructure. The “counter institution” explored in this book represents both a conceptual and a literal struggle to create a space for civic action in a city that is built upon real estate speculation. The author reveals the fascinating tension between the impermanence of the insurgent activist practices and the permanent but maintenance-heavy aspects of architecture. The actors she vividly describes—the war resisters, the Puerto Rican organizers, the housing activists, the punks and artists—all seized the opportunity to create what are seen as “activist estates,” at a time and in a place where urban life itself was under attack. And now, when many such self-organized “activist” buildings are imperiled by the finance-driven real estate market that is New York City, this book takes stock and provides visibility to these under-recognized citizens’ initiatives. Counter Institution is an innovative work that intersects architecture, urban design practices, and geography (cartography) on the one hand, with history, politics, and sociology on the other. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of activism in New York City and how the city can inspire and encourage political engagement. Through its beautifully illustrated pages—where drawings, maps, timelines, and photographs underline the connections among people, politics, and space—readers will discover new ways to imagine buildings as a critical part of the civic infrastructure and a vital resource for the future. NANDINI BAG CHE E is Associate Professor of Design and History at the Spitzer School of Architecture at CCNY, CUNY and Principal of Bagchee Architects.

“Blocked from publication in the 1960s and then hidden in a warehouse in London, Michael Dillon’s autobiography moldered away for decades in the darkness. Now, for the first time ever, it has burst into print. The book illuminates the life of one of the groundbreaking transgender pioneers of the twentieth century. Just as important, it is a suspenseful and heartbreaking tale that begins at the English seaside and ends with a mysterious death in the Himalayan mountains. In his gripping autobiography, Dillon finds new answers to enduring questions about gender. At the same time, he never manages to solve the puzzle of his own identity and dies in the pursuit of transcendence. Dillon’s memoir deserves a place alongside the great spiritual narratives, from Augustine to Merton. This edition is beautifully put together, with an Introduction and notes supplied by a trio of scholars who have immersed themselves in Dillon’s life history.” — PAG A N K EN N EDY, author of The First Man-Made Man M I C HA EL D I LLO N/LOBZANG J IVAKA (1915–62) was an English physician, the first femaleto-male post-operative transsexual, and a Buddhist monastic novice.

The Corporate University and the Fate of the Humanities With a New Introduction F R A NK D O NOGHU E

“How is it that the number of students attending American universities has surged in recent decades, but the number of professors—especially humanities professors—has dwindled? The perplexing institutional dynamics of the modern university come in for penetrating scrutiny here.” — B O O K L I ST The rise of the American university has been defined by the tenured professor who is both scholar and teacher. Yet in today’s market-driven, rankings-obsessed academia, corporate logic prevails: Faculties are managed for optimal efficiency, productivity, and competitive advantage; casual armies of adjuncts and graduate students now do the teaching. Bypassing the culture wars and other distractions, Donoghue elaborates higher education’s structural changes—the rise of for-profit universities, the frenzied pursuit of prestige, brutal job markets—that threaten the survival of professors as we’ve known them. Since being published in 2008, Donoghue’s account of a dwindling professoriate has been borne out. With a new Introduction tracing the past decade’s developments, The Last Professors continues to offer tough analysis that will be crucial for today’s academics to heed. FRANK D ONOGHUE

On April 4, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered an antiwar speech, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence,” in New York City at the Riverside Church. At the time, the United States framed its intervention in Vietnam as a mechanism to protect democracy worldwide. While this supposed defense of democracy raged on thousands of miles away, social protests for racial equality, political representation, and an economic livelihood for the country’s most disenfranchised communities spread across the United States. Highlighting this contradiction in his antiwar speech, King presented his doubts regarding the government’s ability to eliminate the materialism, militarism, and racism that built the nation, a plight that continues today. Written from the perspectives of education practitioners and scholars who have personal histories with global war via (settler) colonialism, immigration, and subsequent disenfranchisement in the United States, Education at War addresses the vestiges of war that shape the lives of youth of color. This thought-provoking collection of essays reveals how the contemporary specter of war has become a central way in which racism and materialism are manifested and practiced within education. Education at War asserts that the contemporary neoliberal characterization of education and school-based reform is situated within the global political economy that has facilitated growth in the prison and military-industrial complex, and simultaneous divestment from education domestically. Essays examine antiwar projects across the K–20 education continuum with chapters from educators who are from and/or work directly with the communities often pathologized in “damage-centered” educational discourse. The authors frame the conditions faced by our communities as not just state-mediated but also as collectively resisted. They place war, surveillance, and carcerality at the center of critical race analysis in education. Each of the chapters includes a pedagogical component, including lessons and comments for educators and youth workers. In cultivating this text, the editors have contributed to building a community of educators, activists, teachers, and scholars who collectively explore how resistance can produce the opportunity for rich, diverse, and transformative learning for marginalized students and communities.

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 virulent direct attack for carrying out its watchdog duties. Upending the traditional media narrative that watchdog accountability journalism is in a long, dismaying decline, The Watchdog Still Barks presents a study of how this most important form of journalism came of age in the digital era at American newspapers. Although the American newspaper industry contracted significantly during the 1990s and 2000s, Fordham professor and former CBS News producer Beth Knobel illustrates through empirical data how the amount of deep watchdog reporting on the front pages of the newspapers studied generally increased over time despite shrinking circulations, low advertising revenue, and pressure to produce the kind of soft news that plays well on social media. 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 to paint a broad portrait of how public service journalism has changed since 1991 as the advent of the Internet transformed journalism. This portrait of the modern newspaper industry shows how papers of varying sizes and ownership structures around the country marshaled resources for accountability reporting despite significant financial and technological challenges. The Watchdog Still Barks includes original interviews with editors who explain why they are staking their papers’ futures on the one thing that American newspapers still do better than any other segment of the media: watchdog and investigative reporting.

Napoli/ New York/ Hollywood Film between Italy and the United States

GI U LI ANA MUS CI O

Napoli/New York/Hollywood is an absorbing investigation of the significant impact that Italian immigrant actors, musicians, and directors—and the southern Italian stage traditions they embodied—have had on the history of Hollywood cinema and American media, from 1895 to the present day. In a unique exploration of the transnational communication between American and Italian film industries, media, or performing arts as practiced in Naples, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, this groundbreaking book looks at the historical context and institutional film history from the illuminating perspective of the performers themselves—the workers who lend their bodies and their performance culture to screen representations. In doing so, the author brings to light the cultural work of families and generations of artists that have contributed not only to American film culture, but also to the cultural construction and evolution of “Italian-ness” over the past century. Napoli/New York/Hollywood offers a major contribution to our understanding of the role of southern Italian culture in American cinema, from the silent era to contemporary film. Using a provocative interdisciplinary approach, the author 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 (theatrical venues, music records, radio, ethnic films). Each chapter synthesizes a wealth of previously under-studied material and displays the author’s exceptional ability to cover transnational cinematic issues within a historical context. For example, her analysis of the period from the end of World War I until the beginning of sound in film production at the end of the 1920s delivers a meaningful revision of the relationship between fascism and American cinema, and Italian emigration. Napoli/New York/Hollywood examines the careers of those Italian performers who were Italian not only because of their origins but also because their theatrical culture was Italian, a culture that embraced high and low, tragedy and comedy, music, dance, and even acrobatics, naturalism, and improvisation. Their previously unexplored story—that of the Italian diaspora’s influence on American cinema—is here meticulously reconstructed through rich primary sources, deep archival research, extensive film analysis, and an enlightening series of interviews with heirs to these traditions, including Francis Ford Coppola and his sister Talia Shire, John Turturro, Nancy Savoca, James Gandolfini, David Chase, Joe Dante, and Annabella Sciorra.

This book is addressed to “lovers of paradoxes,” and the editors have done their utmost to assemble a stellar cast of Neapolitan and American scholars, intellectuals, and artists/writers who are strong and open-minded enough to wrestle with and illuminate the paradoxes through which Naples presents itself. Naples is a mysterious metropolis. Difficult to understand, it is an enigma to outsiders, and also to the Neapolitans themselves. Its very impenetrableness is what makes it so deliriously and irresistibly attractive. The essays attempt to give some hints to the answer of the enigma, without parsing it into neat scholastic formulas. 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.

Italian adventurer and sea captain Celso Cesare Moreno traveled the world lying, scheming, and building an extensive patron/client network to establish his reputation as a middleman and person of significance. Through his machinations, Moreno became a critical player in the expansion of western trade and imperialism in Asia, the trafficking of migrant workers and children in the Atlantic, the conflicts of Americans and Native Hawaiians over the fate of Hawai’i, and the imperial competitions of French, British, Italian, and American governments during a critically important era of imperial expansion during the nineteenth century. Oh Capitano! teases out Moreno’s enormous peculiarities and fascination as well as his significance. Celso Cesare Moreno was simultaneously toxic, deceitful, and charming in equal measure. He wandered, adventured, cheated, exaggerated, promoted (mainly himself ), and continually created newly invented past lives. He repeatedly sought with gusto a role at the center of a globalizing world and had no qualms about lying or betraying others. He claimed at times to be the ruler of a Southeast Asian island that he then offered for sale to several Western nations. He briefly became prime minister of Hawai’i. He testified before the U.S. Congress as an expert witness. He sought to promote a transpacific cable project. He fought with the ministers and leaders of many countries (and with his fellow Italians and Catholic churchmen almost everywhere) but was more often ignored and rejected than feted. He was accused, probably with good cause, of abusing his obligations after claiming guardianship of the sons of King David Kalakaua of Hawai’i. Dragged by his uncontrollable polemical passions, the old Captain died alone, unloved by anyone and with no significant relations to others. With its focus on Moreno, Oh Capitano! illustrates some of the most puzzling cultural traits of emigrant Italian elites. Called a “carpet beggar,” “land pirate,” “extinct volcano,” among many other derogatory monikers, Moreno emerges in this fascinating biography as a multifaceted, chameleon-like personality not reducible to a single epithet.

“Finance Fictions is a remarkable achievement. Arne De Boever blends detailed attention to high finance with close readings of an unexpected array of contemporary novels. Along the way he touches on work by many of the leading figures in contemporary literary studies and theory, from American Psycho to Quentin Meillassoux’s writings on science fiction. The book offers an original and necessary perspective on the fate of the realist novel in an age of collateralized debt obligations and raises provocative questions about what De Boever calls the ‘financialization of the novel itself.’” — DAVI D GO LUMB I A , author of The Politics of Bitcoin: Software as Right-Wing Extremism

Finance Fictions takes the measure of what it means to live in a world ruled by high finance by examining the tension between psychosis and realism that plays out in the contemporary finance novel. When the things traded at the center of the economy cease to be things at all, but highly abstracted speculations, how do we come to see the real? What sorts of narrative can accurately approach the actual workings of a neoliberal economy marked by accelerating cycles of market crashes, economic and political crisis, and austerity? Revisiting such twentieth-century classics of the genre as Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities and Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho, De Boever argues that the twenty-first century is witnessing the birth of a new kind of realistic novel fit for digital algorithms operating at speeds faster than what human beings or computers can record. If in 1989 Wolfe could still urge novelists to work harder to “tame the billion-footed beast of reality,” today’s economic reality confronts us with a difference that is qualitative rather than quantitative: a new financial ontology requiring new modes of thinking and writing. Mobilizing the philosophical thought of Quentin Meillassoux in the close reading of popular novels and conceptual writing, Finance Fictions argues that realism is in for a speculative update if it wants to take on the contemporary economy—an “if” whose implications turn out to be deeply political. Part literary study and part philosophical inquiry, Finance Fictions seeks to contribute to a new mindset for creative and critical work on finance in the twenty-first century.

Since the 1990s, there has been unparalleled growth in the literary output from an ever more diverse group of Latinx writers. 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 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?” From this question others emerge: What does Latinx allow or predispose us to see, and what does it preclude us from seeing? If the grouping—which brings together a heterogeneous collection of people under a seemingly homogeneous label—tells us something meaningful, is there a poetics we can develop that would facilitate our analysis of this literature? In answering these questions, Latinx Literature Unbound frees Latinx literature from taken-for-granted critical assumptions about identity and theme. It argues that there may be more salubrious taxonomies than Latinx for organizing and analyzing this literature. Privileging the act of reading as a temporal, meaning-making event, Ralph E. Rodriguez argues that genre may be a more durable category for analyzing this literature and suggests new ways in which we might proceed with future studies of the writing we have come to identify as Latinx.

Key moments of our lives, especially at the beginning and end, are marked by gentleness—but the simplicity of that concept is misleading. Gentleness is an active passivity that may become an extraordinary force of resistance within ethics and politics. In this powerful rethinking by a renowned philosopher and psychoanalyst whose untimely death captured worldwide attention, gentleness becomes a series of embodied paradoxes: power that is also soft, nobility that is also humble, sweetness that is also intelligent, subtlety that is nevertheless striking, fragility that has the potential to subvert the status quo. Across Western and Eastern religion, philosophy, literature, and art, gentleness is marked by the complexities and ambivalences characteristic of that which we experience through the senses. Yet today, we are most familiar with a gentleness sold to us in the diluted form of mawkishness. This is how we try to evade its subtlety—no longer by fighting it, but by enfeebling it. In the name of our highest values—happiness, truth, security—we enforce “gentle” safeguards against hurt and are persuaded to participate in our era’s three divinities: efficiency, speed, and profitability. But in doing so we seal ourselves off from the life-affirming gamble that a true gentleness affords. True gentleness entails an ethic of desire. Against a society that crushes human beings “gently” through consumerist logic and the illusion of total transparency, Dufourmantelle celebrates the uncompromising gentleness discovered by Gandhi and other revolutionaries. At the same time, within the despair confided by her patients, she traces the force of resistance and intangible magic that gentleness offers in the lived experience of ordinary women and men who fully embrace the risk of living. (1964–2017), philosopher and psychoanalyst, taught at the European Graduate School and wrote monthly columns for the Paris newspaper Libération. Her books in English include Blind Date: Sex and Philosophy and, with Jacques Derrida, Of Hospitality.

Portrait

JE AN-LUC NANCY translated by SA RAH C LIFT and SIMON SPARKS introduction by JE FFREY S. LI B RETT

Portraits, this book suggests, unlock the paradoxes of subjectivity. Nancy shows how the portrait, far from conveying a sitter’s self-sameness, is suspended between proximity and distance, likeness and strangeness, representation and presentation, the faithful and the forceful. A portrait can identify an individual, but it can also express a more complex double movement of approach and withdrawal. Portrait comprises two extended essays in close conversation, written a decade apart, in which Nancy considers the range of aspirations articulated by the portrait. Accompanied by three dozen illustrations, it also includes a new Preface written for the English-language edition and a substantial Introduction by Jeffrey Librett that situates the work within a range of religious, aesthetic, and psychoanalytic accounts of the subject. Portrait is grounded in a bold and searching engagement with the traditions out of which our thinking about the subject has emerged. It is also a playful series of readings that draws on a wide range of portraits: from carvings on ancient drinking vessels to recent experimental or parodic pieces in which sitters are rendered in the “media” of their own blood, germ culture, or DNA. Photos are ubiquitous today, but Nancy argues that this in no way makes thinking about the portrait an idle pursuit. On the contrary, the forms of appearing (and disappearing) that mark portraits—old and new—can serve to renew our exploration of the human figure today. At stake is what Nancy calls “the very possibility of our being present.” is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Université Marc Bloch, Strasbourg.

Secular Lyric interrogates the distinctively individual ways in which Poe, Whitman, and Dickinson transformed classical, romantic, and early modern forms of lyric expression to address the developing conditions of Western modernity, especially the heterogeneity of believers and beliefs in an increasingly secular society. Analyzing historically and formally how these poets inscribed the pressures of the modern crowd in the text of their poems, John Michael shows how the masses appear in these poets’ work as potential readers to be courted and resisted, often at the same time. Unlike their more conventional contemporaries, Poe, Whitman, and Dickinson resist advising, sermonizing, or consoling their audiences. They resist most familiar senses of meaning as well. For them, the processes of signification in print rather than the communication of truths become central to poetry, which in turn becomes a characteristic of modern verse in the Western world. Poe, Whitman, and Dickinson, in idiosyncratic but related ways, each disrupt conventional expectations while foregrounding language’s material density, thereby revealing both the potential and the limitations of art in the modern age. is Professor of English and of Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester, where he is also Director of American Studies.

Comparing radical experiments undertaken by Trinidadian writer C. L. R. James and Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, Experiments in Exile charts their common desire to reconceive citizenship. Laura Harris shows how James and Oiticica gravitate toward and attempt to relay the ongoing renewal of dissident, dissonant social forms that constitute what she calls “the aesthetic sociality of blackness,” in the barrack-yards of Port-of-Spain and the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, the assembly lines of Detroit and the streets of the New York, ultimately challenging rather than rehabilitating normative conceptions of citizens and polities as well as authors and artworks.

The Real Fake explores how T H E R E A L FA K E the users of Thames Town—an English-like village built in AUTHENTICITY Songjiang New Town near AND THE Shanghai—transform a themed space into something more than PRODUCTION a “fake place.” Piazzoni examines OF SPACE how the notion of authenticity affects the production, consumption, and contestation of urban spaces. Authenticity at once excludes the users of the city through hegemonic control and incorporates their ideas and everyday activities by encouraging spontaneous appropriations of space. Corporations have made MARIA FRANCESCA PIAZZONI theming, originating in the postwar United States, a central strategy in the development of orderly, Disney-fied urban communities. The Real Fake complicates this view by focusing on the relationship between theming and authenticity. Tourism studies tell us that we authenticate places through affective and embodied experiences as evidenced by the data collected through qualitative methods in Thames Town. Although the exclusionary character of theming remains apparent in Thames Town, it is precisely the experience of “fakeness” that allows the users to develop a sense of place.

On March 4, 1865, the day Abraham Lincoln delivered his second inaugural address, Reverend Doctor George Peck put the finishing touches on a collection of his sermons that he intended to send to the president. Although the politically moderate Peck had long opposed slavery, he, along with many other northern evangelicals, was not an abolitionist. During the Civil War he had come to support emancipation, but, like Lincoln, the conflict remained first and foremost about preserving the Union. Believing their devotion to the Union was an act of faithfulness to God first and the Founding Fathers second, Our Country explores how many northern white evangelical Protestants sacrificed racial justice on behalf of four million African American slaves (and then ex-slaves) for the Union’s persistence and continued flourishing as a Christian nation. By examining Civil War–era Protestantism in terms of the Union, Grant Brodrecht adds to the understanding of northern motivation and the eventual “failure” of Reconstruction to provide a secure basis for African Americans’ equal place in society. Complementing recent scholarship that gives primacy to the Union, Our Country contends that nonradical Protestants consistently subordinated concern for racial justice to what they perceived to be the greater good. Mainstream evangelicals did not enter Reconstruction with the primary aim of achieving racial justice. Rather, they expected to see the emergence of a speedily restored, prosperous, and culturally homogeneous Union, a Union strengthened by God through the defeat of secession and the removal of slavery as secession’s cause. Brodrecht eloquently addresses this so-called proprietary regard for Christian America, considered within the context of crises surrounding the Union’s existence and its nature from the Civil War to the 1880s. Including sources from major Protestant denominations, the book rests on a selection of sermons, denominational newspapers and journals, autobiographies, archival personal papers of several individuals, and the published and unpublished papers of Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, and Ulysses S. Grant. The author examines these sources as they address the period’s evangelical sense of responsibility for America, while keyed to issues of national and presidential politics. Northern evangelicals’ love of the Union arguably contributed to its preservation and the slaves’ emancipation, but in subsuming the ex-slaves to their vision for Christian America, northern evangelicals contributed to a Reconstruction that failed to ensure the ex-slaves’ full freedom and equality as Americans.

Contested Loyalty

Debates over Patriotism in the Civil War North

Embroiled in the Civil War, northerners wrote and spoke with frequency about the subject of loyalty. The word was common in newspaper articles, political pamphlets, and speeches; appeared on flags, broadsides, and prints; was written into diaries and letters and the stationery they appeared on; and even found its way into sermons. Its ubiquity suggests that loyalty was an important concept, but what did it mean to those who used it? Contested Loyalty examines the significance of loyalty across fault lines of gender, social class, and education, race and ethnicity, and political or religious affiliation. These differing vantage points reveal the complicated ways in which loyalties were defined, prioritized, acted upon, and related. While most of the scholarly work on Civil War–era nationalism has focused on southern identity and Confederate nationhood, the essays in Contested Loyalty examine the variable, fluid constructions of these concepts in the North. Essays explore the limitations and incomplete nature of national loyalty and how disparate groups struggled to control its meaning. The contributors move beyond the narrow partisan debate over democratic dissent to examine other challenges to and competing interpretations of national loyalty. Today’s leading and emerging scholars examine loyalty through the frame of politics at the state and national level; the viewpoints of college-educated men as well as the women they courted; the attitudes of northern Protestant churches on issues of patriotism and loyalty; working-class men and women in military industries; how employers could use the language of loyalty to take away the rights of workers; and the meaning of loyalty in contexts of race and ethnicity. The Union cause was a powerful ideology that committed millions of citizens, in the ranks and at home, to a long and bloody war. But loyalty to the Union cause imperfectly explains how citizens reacted to the traumas of war or the ways in which conflicting loyalties played out in everyday life. The essays in this collection point us down the path of greater understanding. CONTRIBUTORS: Gary W. Gallagher, Judith Giesberg, Ryan W. Keating, Melinda Lawson, Julie A. Mujic, Timothy J.

This volume invokes the “postcolonial contemporary” in order to recognize and reflect upon the postcolonial character of the contemporary conjuncture, as well as to inquire into whether postcolonial criticism can adequately grasp it. Neither simply for nor against postcolonialism, the book seeks to cut across this false alternative and to think with postcolonial theory about political contemporaneity. Many of the most influential frameworks of postcolonial theory were developed from the 1970s to the 1990s, during what we may now recognize as the twilight of the postwar period. If forms of capitalist imperialism are entering into new configurations of neoliberal privatization, wars-without-end, xenophobic nationalism, and unsustainable extraction, what aspects of postcolonial inquiry must be reworked or revised in order to grasp our political present? In twelve essays that draw from a number of disciplines—history, anthropology, literature, geography, indigenous studies—and regional locations (the Black Atlantic, South Africa, South Asia, East Asia, Australia, Argentina) The Postcolonial Contemporary seeks to move beyond the habitual oppositions that have often characterized the field: universal vs. particular; Marxism vs. postcolonialism; politics vs. culture. The essays reckon with new and persisting postcolonial predicaments, doing so under four interrelated analytics: postcolonial temporality; deprovincializing the global south; beyond Marxism versus postcolonial studies; and postcolonial spatiality and new political imaginaries. From the book’s powerful and substantial Introduction through its dozen compelling chapters, The Postcolonial Contemporary will be a landmark volume for reassessing a crucial critical framework for today’s world.

PAPERBACK

On the Nature of Marx’s Things is a major rethinking of the Marxian tradition, one based not on fixed things but on the inextricable interrelation between the material world and our language for it. Lezra traces to Marx’s earliest writings a subterranean, Lucretian practice which he calls necrophilological translation that continues to haunt Marx’s inheritors. This Lucretian strain, requiring that we think materiality as dynamic, aleatory, and always marked by its relation to language, raises central questions about ontology, political economy, and reading. On the Nature of Marx’s Things establishes new concepts and procedures for dismantling the system of objects on which neoliberal capitalism stands, whether concrete things like commodities, conceptual “objects” such as debt traps, austerity programs, and the marketization of risk, or the pedagogical, legal, even familial institutions that produce and reproduce inequities today.

During a tumultuous period when financial speculation began rapidly to outpace industrial production and consumption, Victorian financial journalists commonly criticized the instability of what they called “fictitious capital,” a notion whose artifice was, as the century progressed, to become naturalized in the fascinating metaphor of “psychic economy.” In close rhetorical readings of financial journalism, political economy, and Victorian novels, Anna Kornbluh shows how the Victorians’ psychological framing of economics bequeaths as its legacy our own dominant paradigm for understanding financial crisis. In the displacements and ironies of the Victorian novel, Kornbluh traces the ideological grappling that gives today’s financial thinking a history of its own. Understanding Marx and Freud as inheritors of this novelistic project, she shows how they advance a critique of psychic economy that refuses to naturalize capitalism. is Associate Professor of English at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and a founding member of the V21 Collective.

“Reified Life brilliantly brings together seemingly opposing strands of contemporary theory: Marxist accounts of neoliberalism and financialization on the one hand and posthumanist accounts of the decentering of human life on the other.

Even as the 2008 economic crisis solidified the dominion of neoliberal and financial capital to organize human societies, much to the detriment of the world’s populations, important questions remain. Among them, what forms of life are free and what forms are perceived legally and economically as surplus? Which of them, human and otherwise, are most expendable? Reified Life theorizes the dangerous social implications of a future where human agency is secondary to algorithmic processes, digital protocols, speculative financial instruments, and nonhuman market-based technological forces. Employing new readings of Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault, Marx, Gramsci, and others, J. Paul Narkunas contends that it is premature to speak of a posthuman or inhuman future, or to employ any sort of “ism,” given how dynamic and contingent human practices and their material figurations can be. Over several chapters he diagnoses the rise of “market humans,” the instrumentalization of culture to decide the life worth living along utilitarian categories, as well as the varied ways in which discourses of human rights and humanitarianism actually throw members of the species—refugees, for instance—outside the human order. To combat this, Reified Life argues against posthumanist calls to abandon humanism, proposing instead the category of the ahuman. Doing so offers us a way to think alongside the human and to argue for the value of speculative fiction as a critical mechanism for envisioning alternative futures and freedoms from the domineering forces of speculative capital, whose own fictions have become our realities. To that end, Narkunas provides a novel interpretation of the postanthropocentric turn in the humanities by linking the diminished centrality of humanism to the waning dominion of nation-states over their populations and the intensification of financial capitalism, which reconfigures politics along economic categories of risk management.

This volume brings together scholars of philosophy, law, and literature, including prominent Derrideans alongside activist scholars, to elucidate and expand upon an important project of Derrida’s final years, the recently published seminars he conducted on the death penalty from 1999 to 2001. The contributors offer remarkable insight into Derrida’s ethical and political work and establish his importance for continuing debates on capital punishment, mass incarceration, and police brutality. By deconstructing the theologico-political logic of the death penalty, they work to construct a new, versatile abolitionism, one capable of confronting all forms the death penalty might take. 296 pages 9780823280117 • Paperback • $35.00 (SDT), £28.99 9780823280100 • Hardback • $125.00 (SDT), £103.00 Simultaneous electronic edition available JULY

Eco-Deconstruction marks a new approach to the destruction of our natural environment. While the work of Jacques Derrida has already proven highly influential in posthumanist and animal studies, the present volume brings deconstruction to bear on the most pressing environmental issues of our time. Whether exploring an originary environmentality that marks the constitutive ecological embeddedness of mortal life, examining such remains of human culture as nuclear waste, or articulating an ecological demand for justice, Eco-Deconstruction will resonate with readers not only of philosophy, but across the humanities and the social and natural sciences. 334 pages • 2 illustrations, black and white 9780823279517 • Paperback • $32.00 (SDT), £25.99 9780823279500 • Hardback • $125.00 (SDT), £103.00 Simultaneous electronic edition available Groundworks: Ecological Issues in Philosophy and Theology MARCH

Advertising, Urban Space, and the Moral Law of the Image E M A NU E L E CO CCIA translated by M ARISSA GEMMA

“This short, unsettling book offers new perspectives on the moral place of things in the cosmology of industrial modernity. In making his radical argument, Coccia questions many of our habits of thought, by showing that the love of things—crystallized in fashion, advertising, and consumption—reflects a search for a form of political normativity which has for too long been seen as illicit, illusory, and immoral.” —A RJ U N A P PA DURA I , New York University

Objects are all around us—and images of objects, advertisements for objects. Our relation to objects, this provocative book argues, is what makes us human. Against a facile materialist critique, Emanuele Coccia shows how things become the medium through which a city enunciates its ethos, making available an ethical life to those who live among objects. No longer merely physical or economic entities, objects, within the visual economy of advertising, become inescapably moral. Goods offers a radically political rethinking of the power of images, showing how advertising and fashion are the primitive, sometimes grotesque, but ultimately irrepressible prefiguration of a new politics to come.

The arrival of the Anthropocene brings the suggestion that we are only now beginning to speculate on an inhuman world that is not for us, only now confronting extinction. In romanticism’s quieter, non-emphatic modes of thinking the end of human thought, Jacques Khalip explores lastness as what marks the limits of our life and world. Acknowledging a lastness we do not wish for, Khalip refuses to elegize or celebrate our ends, instead positing romanticism as a negative force that exceeds theories, narratives, and figures of survival and sustainability. Shuttling between romantic and contemporary philosophy, poetry, painting, and photography, Last Things undertakes an original reorganization of romantic thought for contemporary culture.

How did we arrive at our contemporary consumer media economy? Why are we now fixated on screens, imbibing information that constantly expires, and longing for more direct or authentic kinds of experience? The Mediated Mind answers these questions by revisiting a previous media revolution, the nineteenth-century explosion of mass print. Like our own smartphone screens, printed paper and imprinted objects touched the most intimate regions of nineteenth-century life. The rise of this printed ephemera, and its new information economy, generated modern consumer experiences such as voracious collecting and curating, fantasies of disembodied mental travel, and information addiction. Susan Zieger demonstrates how the nineteenth century established affective, psychological, social, and cultural habits of media consumption that we still experience, even as pixels supersede paper. Revealing the history of our own moment, The Mediated Mind challenges the commonplace assumption that our own new media lack a past, or that our own experiences are unprecedented.

She is the author of Inventing the Addict: Drugs, Race, and Sexuality in Nineteenth-Century British and American Literature.

Tractatus Poetico-Philosophicus L AU R E NT D U BREU IL

“The astonishing range and acuity of Dubreuil’s poetic readings show how seriously the author takes his contention that poetry, if read attentively, jostles the cerebral cortex.” — J O H N M OWI T T, University of Leeds

Humanists cannot afford to ignore the past decade’s work in psychology, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience. At the same time, poetry allows us to move beyond the limits of thought—to think differently. A joint commitment to literary, philosophical, and scientific insights animates this remarkable account of poetry’s centrality to cognition. The book is developed through brief, eloquent logical elaborations punctuated by thirty close literary readings, ranging from Sophocles to Gertrude Stein, from Wang Wei to Aimé Césaire, from cuneiform tablet to rap music. Poetry—a perhaps universal phenomenon among humans—arises through syntactic structures, cognitive binding, and mental regulations but, in going through them, also exceeds them. For theorists of literature and for logicians and cognitive scientists alike, the book offers a novel and sophisticated account of the extraordinary regimes of human mental experience.

Plato and the Invention of Life M I C H A E L NAAS

“This book offers a novel, timely, and provocative reading of the pervasive theme of life in Plato and its significance for the history of Western thought. Naas highlights the dialogue that Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Giorgio Agamben, and others have carried on with Plato—offering his own supplements and corrections along the way. The result is a compelling and thought-provoking reading of Plato’s contribution to what is perhaps the most vital and volatile concept in contemporary theoretical discourse.” — SA R A BR I LL, Fairfield University

The question of life, Michael Naas argues, though rarely foregrounded by Plato, runs through and structures his thought. By characterizing being in terms of life, Plato begins to discover—to invent—a notion of true or real life that would be opposed to all merely biological or animal life. Lucid yet sophisticated, Naas’s account offers a fundamental re-reading of what the concept of life entails, one that inflects a range of contemporary conversations, from biopolitics, to the new materialisms, to the place of the human within the living world.

Trauma and Transcendence Suffering and the Limits of Theory

E R I C B OY NTO N and PET ER CAPRET TO, editors afterword by M ARY-JANE RU BENST EIN

Trauma theory has become a burgeoning site of research in recent decades, often demanding interdisciplinary reflections on trauma as a phenomenon that defies disciplinary ownership. While this research has always been challenged by the temporal, affective, and corporeal dimensions of trauma itself, trauma theory now faces theoretical and methodological obstacles given its growing interdisciplinarity. Trauma and Transcendence gathers scholars in philosophy, theology, psychoanalysis, and social theory to engage the limits and prospects of trauma’s transcendence. This volume draws attention to the increasing challenge of deciding whether trauma’s unassimilable quality can be wielded as a defense of traumatic experience against reductionism, or whether it succumbs to a form of obscurantism. 304 pages 9780823280278 • Paperback • $35.00 (SDT), £28.99 9780823280261 • Hardback • $125.00 (SDT), £103.00 Simultaneous electronic edition available AUGUST

Inner Animalities Theology and the End of the Human E R I C DA RY L MEYER

“What does it mean to be a creature in the proximity of the realm of God? Meyer makes an elegant case that the idea of human uniqueness is a sign of human fallenness. This book offers that rare gift: a theological way out of the protracted, defensive need to keep humanity from its God-given animality. In its important theological conceptualizations, in its vivid and visionary discussions, this book gives me hope.” — C A R O L J. ADA MS, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat

Most theology proceeds under the assumption that divine grace works on human beings through our uniqueness among Earth’s creatures—our freedom, self-awareness, language, or rationality. Inner Animalities draws creatively on historical and scriptural texts to imagine instead an account of human life centered in creaturely commonality. Bringing a theological perspective to the growing field of critical animal studies, Inner Animalities puts patristic sources in conversation with modern theology and philosophy to offer a counterintuitive account of human life in relation with nonhuman neighbors and a new angle into ecological theology.

“There really is nothing new about anti-Semitism in the age of today’s white ethno-nationalism. Freud and Monotheism brings the debate about Sigmund Freud’s last work on the origins of anti-Semitism up to the present day.” — SA N D E R G I LMA N , Emory University

Over the past few decades, vibrant debates regarding postsecularism have found inspiration and provocation in the works of Sigmund Freud. A new interest in the interconnection of psychoanalysis, religion, political theory, and modernity has emerged, with Freud’s controversial final book, Moses and Monotheism, taking a central role. Highlighting the broad impact of Moses and Monotheism across the humanities, contributors from philosophy, comparative literature, cultural studies, Jewish studies, psychoanalysis, and Egyptology come together to illuminate Freud’s book and the modern world with which it grapples.

The Self-Emptying Subject Kenosis and Immanence, Medieval to Modern

A L E X D U B I L ET

“The Self-Emptying Subject is a fantastically worthwhile book—lucid, timely, and important. Dubilet explores kenosis as a radical possibility for life, where we may find an immanent joy not dependent on a future redemption.” — KA RMEN MACK EN DRI CK “In this important book, Dubilet recharges immanence via Deleuze and Laruelle to fashion a kenotic subject without transcendence. Based on cutting-edge scholarship, these groundbreaking interpretations of Eckhart, Hegel, and Bataille constitute a significant intervention into contemporary continental philosophy of religion and theology.” — C LAY TO N CRO CK ET T

Against the two dominant ethical paradigms of continental philosophy—Levinas’s ethics of the other and Foucault’s ethics of self-cultivation—The Self-Emptying Subject theorizes an ethics of selfemptying, or kenosis, one that reveals the immanence of an impersonal and dispossessed life without a why. Engaging Christian mysticism, modern philosophy, and contemporary philosophy of religion, Dubilet shows how we might encounter a yet unmapped theoretical fecundity of self-emptying that frees life from transcendent powers that incessantly subject it to their own ends. is Senior Lecturer in English and Political Science at Vanderbilt University and co-translator of two books by François Laruelle.

Denying legal and moral existence to those who do not belong to a land, while tolerating diversity of those who do, stabilizes a political order—or does it? Revisiting this core problem of political theory, Other Others turns to the Talmud as an untapped resource for political thought. Sergey Dolgopolski introduces the concept of “other others,” those who do not bear any “original” belonging to a recognized land and thereby trouble our territorially marked conception of friend and enemy. Dolgopolski powerfully shows how modern political theory and the thought registered in the Talmud can inform each other, developing alternatives to the us/them dichotomy that continues to plague even the most liberal conventional accounts of politics.

Pathological Realities

Essays on Disease, Experiments, and History MI RKO D. GRME K edited, translated, and with an Introduction by PIER R E - OLI VIE R MÉTHOT foreword by HA NS -JÖRG RHE INB E RGE R

Mirko D. Grmek (1924–2000) is one of the most significant figures in the history of medicine and has long been considered a pioneer of the field. The singular trajectory that took Grmek from Yugoslavia to the academic culture of postwar France placed him at the crossroads of different intellectual trends and made him an influential figure during the second half of the twentieth century. Yet scholars have rarely attempted to articulate his distinctive vision of the history of science and medicine with all its tensions, contradictions, and ambiguities. This volume brings together and publishes for the first time in English a range of Grmek’s writings, providing a portrait of his entire career as a historian of science and an engaged intellectual figure. Pathological Realities pieces together Grmek’s scholarship that reveals the interconnections of diseases, societies, and medical theories. Straddling the sciences and the humanities, Grmek crafted significant new concepts and methods to engage with contemporary social problems such as wars, genocides and pandemics. Uniting some major strands of his published work that are still dispersed or simply unknown, this volume covers the deep epistemological changes in historical conceptions of disease as well as major advances within the life sciences and their historiography. Opening with a classic essay—“Preliminaries for a Historical Study of Disease”—this volume introduces Grmek’s notions of “pathocenosis” and “emerging infections,” illustrating them with historical and contemporary cases. Pathological Realities also showcases Grmek’s pioneering approach to the history of science and medicine using laboratory notebooks as well as his original work on biological thought and the role of ideologies and myths in the history of science. The essays assembled here reveal Grmek’s significant influence and continued relevance for current research in the history of medicine and biology, medical humanities, science studies, and the philosophy of science.
