Burn After Reading free pdf The essays, manifestos, rants, screeds, pleas, soliloquies, telegrams, broadsides, eulogies, songs, harangues, confessions, laments, and acts of poetic terrorism in these two volumes - which collectively form an academic "rave" - were culled, with some later additions, from roundtable sessions at the International Congress on Medieval Studies in 2012 and 2013, organized by postmedieval: a journal for medieval cultural studies and the BABEL Working Group ("Burn After Reading: Miniature Manifestos for a Post/medieval Studies," "Fuck This: On Letting Go," and "Fuck Me: On Never Letting Go") and George Washington University's Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute ("The Future We Want: A Collaboration"), respectively. Gathering together a rowdy multiplicity of voices from within medieval and early modern studies, these two volumes seek to extend and intensify a conversation about how to shape premodern studies, and also the humanities, in the years ahead. Authors in both volumes, in various ways, lay claim to the act(s) of manifesting, and also anti-manifesting, as a collective endeavor that works on behalf of the future without laying any belligerent claims upon it, where we might craft new spaces for the University-at-large, which is also a University that wanders, that is never just somewhere, dwelling in the partitive - of a particular place - but rather, seeks to be everywhere, always on the move, pandemic, uncontainable, and always to-come, while also being present/between us (manifest). This is not a book, but a blueprint. TABLE OF CONTENTS Vol. 1: Miniature Manifestos for a Post/medieval Studies, edited by Eileen A.

About Babel Working Group

Jeffrey Jerome Cohen is Professor of English and Director of the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute (MEMSI) at George Washington University. His research explores what monsters promise- how postcolonial studies, queer theory, postmodernism and posthumanism might help us to better understand the literatures and cultures of the Middle Ages (and might be transformed by that encounter)- the limits and the creativity of our taxonomic impulses- the complexities of time when thought outside of progress narratives- and ecotheory. He is the author of three books: Of Giants: Sex, Monsters and the Middle Ages- Medieval Identity Machines- and Hybridity, Identity and Monstrosity in Medieval Britain: On Difficult Middles and the editor of four more, including Prismatic Ecology: Ecotheory Beyond Green (Minnesota, 2014).
