Futures of the Archive: Theory, Criticism, Crisis

Series edited by Arthur Bradley and Simon Swift

What will be the future of critical theory’s past? This series offers a set of radical interdisciplinary interventions which explore how the history of critical theory can contribute to an understanding of the contemporary. By returning to classic critical debates in philosophy, politics, aesthetics, religion and more, the volumes in this series seek to provide a new insight into the crises of our present moment: capitalism, revolution, biopolitics, human rights, the anthropocene. In this way, Futures of the Archive shows that the past – and in particular critical theory’s own past – is not a dead letter, but an archive to which we still belong and which continues to shape our present and future.

This series is published in partnership with the Northern Theory School.
