Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks
Insistence of the Material engages with theories of materiality and biopolitics to provide a
radical reinterpretation of experimental fiction in the second half of the
twentieth century. It examines this literature's focus on the material conditions
of everyday life and rethinks contemporary understandings of biopolitics,
affirming the importance of forms of materiality that refuse full socialization
and resist symbolic manipulation.
Christopher Breu is associate professor of English at Illinois State University. He is the author of Hard-Boiled Masculinities (Minnesota, 2005).
