Literature & Cultural Theory

Literary and cultural study (LCS) puts subjectivity at the center of economics, technology, society, and development.

Our general investigations

  • LCS offers deep understanding of language, expression, affect, intersubjectivity, and identity. What is it now saying about innovation crisis and economic decline?
  • What are the cultural sources of the U.S.'s disappointing version of democracy? How can these be reversed?
  • Were post-capitalist society to be defined by literary theorists, what would it look like?
