Special Issue of Parallax

Memory after Humanism

Memory after Humanism is a Special Issue of Parallax 23.4 (2017), co-edited by Susanne Knittel and Kári Driscoll.

What would a posthumanist memory studies look like? This is the question behind the special issue of Parallax, edited by Susanne C. Knittel (Utrecht Young Academy, Department of Languages, Literature, and Communication) and Kári Driscoll (Department of Languages, Literature, and Communication). The contributions to this special issue bring memory studies into conversation with the fields of disability studies, animal studies, ecocriticism, new materialism, and decolonial critique. The issue features a combination of full-length essays and short responses by leading scholars and early career academics in these diverse fields. This groundbreaking publication is indispensable for anyone interested in cultural memory in the 21st century. 

Several researchers from Utrecht University contributed to this issue of Parallax: Birgit M. Kaiser and Kathrin Thiele, as well as Ann Rigney.
