Abstract | Full Text

<span style="font-size: medium;"><span><span style="font-size: 13pt;">In a post-critical environment, literary and cultural analysis can find new directions through engagement with &lsquo;experiment&rsquo;, &lsquo;multirealism&rsquo; and &lsquo;reproduction&rsquo; as agents &lsquo;earn participation&rsquo; in collectives of humans and non-humans. Collectives of &lsquo;partners&rsquo; are necessary collaborators in the reproduction of cultural forms. This vitalist approach carries an experimental method, an expanded ontological field, and a relational subjectivity, which contrasts to the traditional humanities intellectual who aspires to the refinement of judgment.</span></span></span>
