Theory's Empire Event
Back in the day, I participated in a blog-based dialogue that literary-studies group blog The Valve put on to discuss the book Theory's Empire - the discussion was an occasion to debate the larger role of critical theory as literary studies departments in particular understand it. John Holbo announces today that book version of this debate is out. This small-run book, Framing Theory's Empire, includes an entry by yours truly... nothing profound, but I wanted to call attention to film studies' potential contribution to the debate. It's flattering company to be in: Michael Berube, Brad DeLong, Tim Burke, and many others. Anyway, thanks to John for the dogged work in putting it together.
