Goldsmiths Press / Unidentified Fictional Objects
Academic output is outgrowing standard disciplinary and literary genres. This is at least in a part response to a more generalized hybridity: individuals become collectives; human agency diffused through machine and network; society increasingly reliant on and responsible for the contingencies of an unstable planetary situation. We urgently need new ways of thinking, working, naming, being, and writing that engage with what we are becoming, and the changes we face as an intellectual community.The Unidentified Fictional Objects series offers books that will disturb and provoke, offering purposeful and pointed responses to the present situation.These are texts that trouble the assumptions of mainstream academic and literary writing: inventing new hybrid genre fictions, new essayistic forms, and employing methods of fiction to do critical work and critical methods to push fiction to new capacities.
