Roundup – Sebald, Books, Speculative Realist Literary Criticism, Occupy Wall Street, Zizek on TV

Some interesting stuff I’ve recently come across…

A retrospective ten years after W.G. Sebald’s death in The Times Higher Education (via Continental Philosophy). Interesting reading, especially on his resistance to the bureaucratisation of higher education.

Jeffrey Jerome Cohen offers some interesting thoughts on book publishing over at In the Middle.

His collaborator on that blog, Eileen Joy, recently gave a talk in New York entitled ‘Towards a Speculative Realist Literary Criticism’. The audio is available here. Levi Bryant at Larval Subjects has an interesting reaction.

And shifting gears somewhat, an interesting post linking the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ demonstrations with extra-judical killings, over at Space and Politics. On the first, Lenin’s Tomb is also worth a look.

Finally, thanks to Clare for sending me this – a Q&A on Australian TV, with Jon Ronson, Kate Adie, Slavoj Žižek and others.
