Disruptive fluidity; the poetics of the pop cogito.


Disruptive fluidity; the poetics of the pop cogito.

Chromik, Anna.

Peter Lang


164 pages



Literary and cultural theory; v.38


Chromik (English cultural and literary theory, U. of Silesia, Poland) explores the textual modes in which the phenomena of fluidity and solidity are represented in the context of contemporary reconstructions of modern subjectivity. Her underlying assumption is that such dichotomies as containment/incontinence, interior/exterior, cleanliness/contamination, and demarcation/boundlessness serve as culture-creating functions and are based on a conviction that categories traditionally identified with corporeality do not exist separate from the discourse of subjectivity. There is no index.
