Publishers Weekly: One Summer Up North
Review of One Summer Up North by John Owens
Critical Inquiry: Hermeneutics can still be a site where politics occurs at its most minute yet prolific.
A rich account of postsocialist intellectual history as well as a nuanced study of film and literary works that have thus far received scant attention, Information Fantasies also gestures at new directions for future Chinese film and media studies. Among its several achievements is the identification of TV, rather than cinema, as the medium central to the popular imagination of information platforms and digital convergence. This observation joins recent scholarship such as Thomas Lamarre’s study of Japanese anime and its televisual distribution in enlarging a field previously focused on cinematic representations.

Liat Ben-Moshe on Rising Up With Sonali
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recently voted unanimously to close the notorious LA Men’s Central Jail – part of the largest jail system in the country that prison abolition activists have often dubbed the nation’s largest psychiatric ward. A whopping 20% of inmates have struggled with mental illness in what may be the strongest indication of the intersection of disability and incarceration. Now a new book tackles how the discourse on mass incarceration needs to be centered on disability.
