Money Menace

NEW FORMATIONS 72: PSYCHOANALYSIS AND MONEY

Out now: new formations 72 Psychoanalysis and money
Guest editor: David Bennett

An international cast of psychoanalysts, cultural theorists, philosophers and critics explore aspects of the nexus between psychoanalysis, money and economics in the aftermath of the latest global financial crisis. Asking not only what psychoanalysis can tell us about financial crashes, but also what crashes may reveal about psychoanalysis, it stages a confrontation between two disciplines that have been mutually indifferent and mutually opaque for much of the past 100 years.

IMPERIAL ECOLOGIES

Issue 69 of ‘New Formations: A Journal of Culture/Theory/Politics’

Imperial Ecologies

Guest Editor: Ashley Dawson
New Formations 69 offers a timely and urgent set of contributions towards the development of ‘political ecology’. Despite a history of sporadic engagements, cultural theory and cultural studies has rarely dealt thoroughly with ecological issues, tending to retreat into its habitual scepticism regarding anything that might smell of naturalism. The fact that ecological questions frame all of the urgent political debates of our epoch, as well as animating some of the most dynamic areas of critical thought, surely means that this situation cannot continue. This collection begins to address the issues.

Gilles Deleuze

DELEUZIAN POLITICS?

Issue 68 of New Formations: A journal of culture / theory / politics

Guest Editors Jeremy Gilbert and Chrysanthi Nigianni 

New Formations 68 reflects on the turn to Deleuze in the English-speaking world (looking in particular, but not exclusively, at his work with Félix Guattari). The essays in this volume represent a range of work that demonstrates, and occasionally questions, the usefulness of Deleuzian ideas for addressing key cultural theoretical questions in novel and politically productive ways, addressing themes ranging from sexual politics through the ethics of vitalism to ideas of  political militancy.  It includes:

• Major new essays by three leading exponents of Deleuze’s work in English: Rosi Braidotti, Claire Colebrook and Nicholas Thoburn

•The first English translation of the work of Véronique Bergen, author of L’Ontologie de Gilles Deleuze (2001) and Résistances Philosophiques (2009)

•An impassioned round-table discussion by four leading commentators on Deleuze’s work: Éric Alliez, Peter Hallward, Claire Colebrook and Nicholas Thoburn

•An extensive critical review of current Deleuzian political and cultural theory

•Ground-breaking essays by Jorge Camacho, Patricia MacCormack and Chrysanthi Ngianni
