Post-Cinematic Affect

The new issue (14.1) of the open-access journal Film-Philosophy is now online.

Featured in this issue as an “extended article” (it comes out to 100 pages!) is my latest: “Post-Cinematic Affect: On Grace Jones, Boarding Gate and Southland Tales.”

The article is freely available for download; it comprises about two thirds of my forthcoming book Post-Cinematic Affect, appearing sometime later this year from Zero Books. (The book version will include two additional chapters: one on Neveldine/Taylor’s Gamer, and a general conclusion).

  1. Steven,

    I read the entire essay last night and I really love it. The section devoted to Southland Tales, which I also share your enthusiasm for, is particularly interesting for me. And, as usual, I found a number of really interesting philosophy-related leads. Really looking forward to the entire book, too.

  2. Great chapter Steve. Very clearly spelled out and provacative distictions. Important work. I’ll assign it to the students in our new graduate program who are reading Baudrilliard, Benjamin, Deleuze this semester.

  3. Severely off-topic, but I was wondering if you’d be interested in a project I’m aiming at a number of the blog authors in the continental philosophy blogosphere. Specifically, I’m interested in developing a mailing list that would act as a “back channel” for discussion across a range of minds, the virtue of which is on-going, long-form discussion that bridges the gap between blog comments sections and email. If this interests you, let me know at what[dot]is[dot]ground[at]gmail[dot]com.
