About this product
- DescriptionTraditionalists insist that literature transcends culture. Others counter that it is subversive by nature. By challenging both claims, Genealogy and Literature reveals the importance of literature for understanding dominant and often violent power/kwledge relations within a given society. The authors explore ways in which literature functions as a cultural practice, the links between death and literature as a field of discourse, and the possibilities of disseminating modes of bodily regulation. Through wide-ranging investigations of writing from England, France, Nigeria, Peru, Japan and the United States, they reinvigorate the study of literature as a means of understanding the complexities of everyday experience.
- Author BiographyDr. Lee Quinby is visiting professor at William E. Macaulay Honors College at CUNY. She is author of, among other books, Anti-Apocalypse: Exercises in Genealogical Criticism (Minnesota, 1994).
