Teaching Loads

heavy loadA random discussion on Facebook inspired me to write a post on teaching loads. There’s this moment in one’s grad career when one learns what a “two-two,” a “three-three,” or a “four-three,” for instance, means, and these seem to become magical incantations thereafter. ... read more »

For this panel I’d like to look at the relevance to media studies of three ideas associated with the work of Slavoj Zizek: cynical reason, apocalypse as utopia, and the theological turn. As I started putting this paper together, I realized that Zizek himself is actually not the originator of any of the three concepts, […]
