New Eng­lish­es, New Meth­ods
BuchcoverThere is an ever-grow­ing body of work on New Eng­lish­es, and the time has come to take stock of how research on vari­eties of Eng­lish is car­ried out. The con­tri­bu­tions in this vol­ume crit­i­cal­ly explore the gamut of famil­iar and unfa­mil­iar meth­ods applied in data col­lec­tion and analy­sis in order to improve upon old meth­ods and devel­op new meth­ods for the study of Eng­lish around the world. The authors present nov­el approach­es to the use of the Inter­na­tion­al Cor­pus of Eng­lish, crit­i­cal insights into phono­log­i­cal analy­ses of New Eng­lish­es, appli­ca­tions of lin­guis­tic dialec­tol­ogy in ter­ri­to­ries in which New Eng­lish­es are used, improve­ments on atti­tu­di­nal research, and an array of mixed-meth­ods approach­es. The con­tri­bu­tions in this vol­ume also include a range of Eng­lish­es, con­sid­ered not only in situ but also in online and dias­po­ra set­tings, and thus ques­tion received under­stand­ings of what counts as New Eng­lish­es.

How to Do Things with Dead Peo­ple: His­to­ry, Tech­nol­o­gy, and Tem­po­ral­i­ty from Shake­speare to Warhol
BuchcoverHow to Do Things with Dead Peo­ple stud­ies human con­trivances for rep­re­sent­ing and relat­ing to the dead. Alice Dai­ley takes as her prin­ci­pal objects of inquiry Shakespeare’s Eng­lish his­to­ry plays, describ­ing them as repro­duc­tive mech­a­nisms by which liv­ing repli­cas of dead his­tor­i­cal fig­ures are regen­er­at­ed in the present and re-killed. Con­sid­er­ing the plays in these terms expos­es their affin­i­ty with a tran­shis­tor­i­cal array of tech­nolo­gies for pro­duc­ing, repro­duc­ing, and inter­act­ing with dead things—technologies like lit­er­ary dop­pel­gängers, pho­tog­ra­phy, ven­tril­o­quist pup­petry, X‑ray imag­ing, glitch art, cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment machines, and cloning. By sit­u­at­ing Shakespeare’s his­tor­i­cal dra­ma in this inter­me­di­al con­ver­sa­tion, Dai­ley chal­lenges con­ven­tion­al assump­tions about what con­sti­tutes the con­text of a work of art and con­tests foun­da­tion­al mod­els of lin­ear tem­po­ral­i­ty that inform long-stand­ing con­cep­tions of his­tor­i­cal peri­odiza­tion and tele­o­log­i­cal order. Work­ing from an eclec­tic body of the­o­ries, pic­tures, and machines that tran­scend time and media, Dai­ley com­pos­es a search­ing explo­ration of how the liv­ing use the dead to think back and look for­ward, to rule, to love, to wish and cre­ate.
