Brian Massumi’s Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation, has become a classic text in cultural studies and affect theory. We’ve just released a twentieth-anniversary edition featuring a new preface and a gorgeous new design. If you’ve been meaning to pick up this important text, now’s the time! Massumi also has a brand new book out, Couplets, which presents twenty-four essays that represent the full spectrum of his work during the past thirty years. Conceived as a companion volume to Parables for the Virtual, Couplets addresses the key concepts of Parables from different angles and contextualizes them, allowing their stakes to be more fully felt.
In To Make Negro Literature, Elizabeth McHenry recovers a hidden genealogy of Black literature by examining African American authorship in the understudied decade following the 1896 legalization of segregation. By prioritizing overlooked archives, McHenry reveals a radically different literary landscape.
Moving Home by Sandra Gunning also draws on lesser-known African diasporic texts, in this case travel narratives, to explore the conditions and possibilities of race, gender, sex, and class that early black Atlantic travel enabled.
Celeste Day Moore’s Soundscapes of Liberation traces the popularity of African American music in postwar France to outline how it came to signify both state power and liberation for Francophone audiences throughout the world.
Nature’s Wild by Andil Gosine revises understandings of queer desire in the Caribbean, showing how the very concept of homosexuality in the Caribbean (and in the Americas more broadly) has been overdetermined by a colonially-influenced human/animal divide. You have several chances to catch Gosine at events in October!
