Ecofeminism and Xenofeminism

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

Environmentalists frequently describe the planet as “Mother Earth,” decry the “rape” of the planet, and call on humans to “love your mother.” But why is the earth seen as a woman? Should it be?

The Book of Job: Punishment and Reward

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

In its stark portrayal of the quest for meaning amidst great suffering, the book of Job stands alone not only in the Hebrew Bible, but also among the wisdom literature of the ancient Near East. A work of magnificent poetic beauty, it raises the perennial question of why bad things happen to good people—but with surprising responses. The character...

Across an oeuvre stunning in its scope—including fiction, drama, theory, and criticism—the work of Jamaican writer Sylvia Wynter represents one of the greatest contributions to Black radical thought in the twentieth century.

Schelling: Nature, Philosophy, and Existence

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

F.W.J. Schelling is (in)famous for his seemingly ever-changing views and proliferating “systems.” But underlying his philosophizing was a single obsession: to heal the rift between nature and reason that had been newly ruptured in the work of his immediate and venerable predecessor, Immanuel Kant.

What is Autofiction? Beyond Truth and Fiction

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

On the face of it, autofiction appears self-explanatory—a simple combination of two familiar genres, autobiography and fiction. But the simple combination is also an uneasy one. Part of what makes autofiction so thrilling—and so controversial—is the challenge it poses to the readerly expectations that are established in no small part by generic...
