The School of History: Athens in the Age of Socrates
The School of History: Athens in the Age of Socrates

Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics (Routledge Critical History of Victorian Poetry)
Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics (Routledge Critical History of Victorian Poetry)
To my mind Armstrong's book makes its contribution to the study of Victorian Literature in two key ways. I expect I will return often to her very sophistocated consideration of that old chesnut, the Victorian crystallization of lyric subjectivity in a political-poetical dramaturgy of self-spectatorship. And I find an extraordinary resonance in her...

Blog Theory: Feedback and Capture in the Circuits of Drive
Blog Theory: Feedback and Capture in the Circuits of Drive

The challenge of this book is thinking critically about media practices in a setting where they are fast, fun, and ubiquitous. As an avowedly engaged and political approach to thought, critical theory of any sort encounters challenges. Attempting to analyze and intervene in the present, it nonetheless adopts a backward gaze, an idea G.W.F....
