Post-Crisis Poetics essay

Editor Brian Ang’s “Post-Crisis Poetics”:

“Post-crisis poetics: desire for a poetics adequate to the present, the world since the 2008 economic crisis.” Analyzing David Lau, Josef Kaplan, Brian Ang, Steven Zultanski, Maya Weeks, Wendy Trevino and Dereck Clemons, Jasper Bernes, Joshua Clover, Anne Lesley Selcer, and Rob Halpern, and with an invitation for further views. “Post-crisis poetics: construction of a network of practices adequate to writing the present, the post-crisis period in progress. Toward its construction, I’ve analyzed practices investigating multiple dimensions of the post-crisis world-system, suggesting lines for multiplying the communization of knowledge within the unfolding present. To continue construction and encourage discussion, readers are invited to give their views of what writing can contribute to further investigating the post-crisis present for a series that I’m editing to be published over the course of a month. Submit to by the end of July 2016 for consideration. The series will be published at”
