Speculative Realism in Television and Literature

Organizing Committee:

A few sessions dedicated to parsing through exactly what speculative realism is and why it is significant for contemporary television. Readings to draw on both philosophy and literature, including Meillassoux's "Science Fiction and Extro-Science Fiction", Alenka Zupancic's "Realism in Psychoanalysis", Peter Gratton's "Speculative Realism: Problems and Prospects", Eugene Thacker's "After Life", Kobo Abe's "The Ark Sakura" and essays, and Danilo Kis' "Encyclopedia of the Dead." These will be discussed in the context of contemporary T.V. including True Detective, Mr. Robot, The Man in the High Castle, and The (old) X-Files.
