    Abstract [en]

    This essay offers a brief response to Johannes Voelz’s call for an engagement with the aesthetics of security and, in particular, insecurity. It raises the question of whether there exists a co-constitutive relationship between the politics and practices of security and its aesthetics, and, more broadly, seeks to identify some of the questions and areas of investigation that might result from a literary study of security and securitization.

    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a critical analysis of financialisation as a conceptual category for making sense of contemporary American fiction. Examining the rise of the figure of the creative entrepreneur as well as a range of contemporary fiction, the author argues that, to make sense of these developments and texts, we need to attend to how they reproduce the logic of finance, and in particular that of the financial instrument of the derivative. Like the financial derivative, the novels the author examines are future-oriented: they calculate and speculate on the ways they feed forward into new iterations and media. In addition, the texts and their authors are embedded within entrepreneurial networks within which different fields and competencies are brought into relation with one another. Through these conjunctures, the logic of finance becomes that of the contemporary novel.

    Failing States, Human (In)Security, and the American World Novel2019In: New Global Studies, ISSN 1940-0004, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 80-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a growing number of contemporary American novelists take the world and its socio-cultural and geopolitical complexity as their subject matter, the contemporary novel's form and sense of worldliness are shifting. Twenty-first century US fiction challenges normative models of the world proposed by theories of cosmopolitan relationality by projecting fragile worlds of strife and trauma, in which violence accompanies geopolitical turbulence. In these novels, discourses around human security-the everyday security needs of vulnerable populations-are increasingly prominent. Accordingly, contemporary US fiction often incorporates within its geopolitical imaginary such issues as human rights, humanitarian interventions, development, and how life is disabled by prejudice, civil war, scarcity, and health or other crises. In this essay, I range across a number of works by contemporary American novelists such as Dave Eggers, Jennifer Egan, Denis Johnson, Dana Spiotta, and Bob Shacochis in which state failures as well as human and geopolitical security concerns impact on the form given to the world by these novelists. In their novels, narratives concerning human security as well as threats to geopolitical stability produce transnational geographies in which global interconnections and circulation intensify feelings of insecurity.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay offers a critical analysis of the concern with large temporal scales in the contemporary American novel. I argue it has resituated human life within a vast temporal landscape - what I refer to as a timescape - that at its extremes relates the human to the nonhuman, and gives form to the possibility of species extinction. The temporal vastness of the contemporary American novel should be read as catastrophic; it even implicates the present in the slowly unfolding crises it seeks to capture. At the same time, this fiction, as I argue through readings of Don DeLillo's Point omega (2010) and Nathaniel Rich's Odds against tomorrow (2013), multiplies temporal scales, some larger and others smaller. It is through the imbrication of differently sized scales and timescapes that these novels articulate their central concern: how the present relates to the future.
