Anarchaeologies: Reading as Misreading (Lit Z) By Erin Graff Zivin Cover Image


How do we read after the so-called death of literature? Graff Zivin elaborates anarchaeological reading: reading for the blind spots, errors, points of opacity or untranslatability. Through interdiscursive exposure between continental philosophy and Argentine literature, art, and film, Graff Zivin shows how anarchaeological reading radicalizes the possibility of justice.
