    Abstract [en]

    This essay offers a new reading of two post-war working-class British novels, Barry Hines's A Kestrel for a Knave and Ron Berry's So Long, Hector Bebb, in light of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's ideas about the body and subjectivity. What is at stake in these narratives, as in the theoretical edifice constructed by Deleuze and Guattari, is a possibility of being in this case, of social, class-marked being that does not necessarily commence and conclude with fixed positions and functional roles, or with already formed subjectivities and identities. The class figures that we encounter in these novels call for a careful reappraisal of political agency outside of these sanctioned parameters, and for an alternative understanding of marginality in a context of crisis of Fordist social and productive relations.

    Monstrous Contemplation: Frankenstein, Agamben, and the Politics of Life2018In: Textual Practice, ISSN 0950-236X, E-ISSN 1470-1308, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 611-628Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In his recent book L'uso dei corpi, Giorgio Agamben investigates the philosophical genealogy of his central concept of inoperosita through a reconsideration of the classical notion of chresis or 'use'. According to Agamben, the latter points to an alternative constitution of human nature, one that would not be guided by a principle of necessary actualisation (energeia), would not exhaust itself in the realisation of an end (ergon), but would rather preserve its potentiality in a thoroughly non-subjective ('contemplative') relation of the body to itself. For Agamben, it is only through the recognition and mobilisation of this alternative foundation of the human, that the pervasive division of life (between natural and political, 'bare' and 'autarchic', zoe and bios) upon which modern politics is premised, can be overcome. In this article, I propose to read in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein an instructive rehearsal of these fundamental concepts, focusing on the possible meanings that the notion of monstrosity may acquire when placed against the backdrop of modernity's commitment to energeia and its associated biopolitical mechanisms.

    Sketches of Autonomy: Capitalist Subsumption and Working-Class Resistance in Alan Sillitoe's Early Fiction2015In: Genre: Forms of Discourse and Culture, ISSN 0016-6928, E-ISSN 2160-0228, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 435-459Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Alan Sillitoe's Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and “The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner” offer a fresh perspective on the endurance of class antagonisms in the Britain of the 1950s. These texts' radical import rests on their rejection of consensual discourses and on their fundamental insistence on working-class difference. Instead of offering a gradualist argument in the mold of much socialist writing of the period (whether revisionist or “New Leftist”), Sillitoe's fictional engagements point to a persistent rift, to a lasting separation that may effectively lead the working-class subject to a sense of self-worth without subordination. This article contends that in these classic pieces of British working-class literature Sillitoe sketches—in a sequential and incremental manner—a “strategy of refusal” of the conditions of incorporation defined by postwar capitalism. Following the theoretical analyses developed by the Italian school of Marxist workerism (operaismo), it is claimed that the increasing “socialization” of capital in the postwar period did not mark its waning or disappearance but rather a widespread effort to absorb or “subsume” the entire society in its value-producing logic. This came as a specific response to working-class struggles and subjective assertions and was therefore a confirmation of the working class's increasing autonomy rather than of its fading. Sillitoe's fiction is a potent illustration of the tension between capitalist subsumption/incorporation and working-class resistance/autonomy in this period—a tension that reaches a breaking point in the passage from Saturday Night and Sunday Morning to “The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner.”
