Description

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.
