Roundup

Very interesting interview with Jeffrey Jerome Cohen here. Beowulf and Grendel; why ‘speculative realism’ is more use for medieval studies than Agamben; race, gender, nationalism; and contemporary politics like the ‘war on terror’.

Over at the Society and Space blog, Bradley L. Garrett engages with Luke Bennett’s paper ‘Bunkerology’ in the current issue of the journal. Bennett replies. We’ve made the ‘Bunkerology’ paper open access for a limited time.

Adam Kotsko reflects on Žižek’s back cover publicity blurbs here.

And Jonathan Simon briefly discusses the Foucault Effect conference here.
