Opis produktu

'DIV''I'Conditions of the Present'/I' collects essays by the late Lindon Barrett whose scholarship centers African American literature as a site from which to theorize race and liberation in the United States. Barrett confronts critical blind spots within both academic and popular discourse offering readings of cultural and literary texts that transcend institutional divides and the gulf between academia and the street. Whether analyzing autobiographies by Lucy Delaney or Langston Hughes hiphop eulogies or the formation of U.S. nationalist discourse Barrett interrogates the mechanisms that shape social and subjective structures and that grant certain people power while withholding it from others. Deploying Marxist psychoanalytic feminist and queer theories Barrett explicates the interrelationship of desire and subjection to expose the violence and coercion embedded in narratives of ":progress.": Ultimately this collection emphasizes Lindon Barretts vital and enduring contribution to African American studies.'BR /''BR /' Contributors.
