nonsite.org announces Issue #4: No Quarrel (Part 2) by Oren Izenberg, UIC and Rob Chodat, Boston University
This issue presents the continuation of a conversation between literary scholars and philosophers, revisiting the ancient quarrel between literature and philosophy in a modern disciplinary context. These essays are revised and extended versions of papers originally delivered at No Quarrel: Literature and Philosophy Today, a conference organized at Boston University in April, 2011 by Robert Chodat and Oren Izenberg, and sponsored by the BU Humanities Foundation.

nonsite.org is a quarterly journal of art, philosophy and politics affiliated with Emory University. It is edited by Jennifer Ashton, Todd Cronan, Michael Fried, Oren Izenberg, Brian Kane, Ruth Leys, Walter Benn Michaels, Charles Palermo, Robert Pippin, Victoria H.F. Scott, and James Welling.
nonsite.org emerges in part out of interest in a set of theoretical topics the ontology of the work of art, the question of intentionality, the imperative to historicize, the ongoing appeal of different and sometimes competing materialisms and in part out of opposition to the dominant accounts of those topics.
Today, the various theoretical forms of neoliberalism from the postmodern to the posthuman, from the new historicism to the new pluralism have become so pervasive that they are nearly invisible. nonsite.org seeks first to make them visible and then to make them less pervasive. Our goal is to criticize what is and replace it with what we think ought to be.
The site contains a peer-reviewed quarterly journal with editorials, reviews, poetry and other features, including the tank, an on-line forum for solicited work in progress and for comment on it.
