Atopian Limits

Questions of Self, Complexity, and Contingency in Postmodern American Narrative

Salah El Moncef

This comprehensive study of postmodern subjectivity explores some of the most significant challenges confronting the individual in the third millennium – from the role of ethnic difference and immigration in the public sphere, to questions of sexual politics in the work- and marketplace, to the effects of technological interference with human and animal bodies, to the increasing unpredictability of global economics. What emerges from the analysis of these issues is a work of unique foresight, clarity, and scholarly integrity – a relentlessly meticulous scrutiny of our complex and uncertain world. In its treatment of the most pressing questions of our times, Atopian Limits is a gripping attempt to anticipate and understand the different forces of evolution looming on the horizon of our socioeconomic destiny, the future waves of change coming upon us fraught with their catastrophic as well as their emancipatory possibilities.

Présence et représentation

Colloque du Centre de Recherches sur les Conflits d’Interprétation, Université de Nantes, 2001

Jacques Gilbert and Salah El Moncef

Présence et représentation relèvent chacune d’une appréhension différente dont les choses se donnent. Leur relation est dès le départ problématique et c’est autour de ce débat que se sont construits certains des conflits les plus vifs de la période moderne. Cet ouvrage propose plusieurs analyses de la question dans des champs aussi divers que la littérature, le théâtre, la peinture, et la philosophie.
