Description
Fall 2013

Edited by Christine Davis and Scott MacKenzie

This issue brings together an international array of scholars and artists to examine the current political and cultural fascination with material and symbolic representations of “The End.” From the end of Communism to the end of higher education, the end of the environment to the end of life, our writers and artists examine what is currently ending, and what popular, philosophical and political discourse claims to be at an end. This issue foregrounds not only the contemporary political and environmental disasters that are taking place around us, but also offers entry points to engage with these postulated ends, allowing one to imagine a future that is not an endpoint. To do so, one must firmly place oneself in the present, without naïve nostalgia for the past, or abject resignation about the future. For there to be a future, our contributors, in different ways and from different philosophical, critical and artistic points of view, argue for a citizenship fully engaged in the present. The issue also includes Slavoj Žižek’s keynote address from the Until the End of The World Symposium, held at Toronto’s City Hall Council Chambers in September 2012.
