Adrian Ivakhiv has added some thoughts here.
I’ll be interested to see how this develops. I have read the book and found it very interesting, beautifully written and full of ideas. But I am not sure how it should impact on my own work in the history of ideas. This is one of the reasons why the conference on Speculative Medievalisms will be interesting. I may post some more thoughts on this (I’m currently rereading the book).
