From Being to Unrest, from Objectivity to Motion—A Race for Theory

(p.291) Conclusion
Thinking Through Crisis

James Edward Ford III

Fordham University Press

Thinking Through Crisis argues for the 1930s as a crucial instance of black writing that rethinks the agency irrupting from traumatization. Ford seeks to recalibrate cultural theory’s relation to the practical, exploring the relation between theory and practice by focusing on the work of Barbara Christian and Hortense Spillers.

Keywords:   Barbara Christian, race for theory, Cedric Robinson, Hortense Spillers, trauma theory
