Abstract

In this article I explore the “promise” of a posthumanist or non-representationalist approach to the entanglement of objects-materials, transnational circulations and cosmopolitan subjectivities. In a piece of experimental writing, I use an extract from the Wellesley News, a fragment from an autobiography by Mishima Sumi, traditional academic conventions (of secondary citation), alongside imaginative questioning and personal asides. I begin by outlining elements of a non-representational approach to materiality, on which I draw, and selected scholarship on the place of materials in relation to analyses of materiality. The postscript replacing a conclusion acts as a form of commentary on the risk of non-referential accounts.
