  1. Posthumanism.Neil Badmington (ed.) - 2000 - Palgrave.
    What is posthumanism and why does it matter? This book offers an introduction to the ways in which humanism's belief in the natural supremacy of the Family of Man has been called into question at different moments and from different theoretical positions. What is the relationship between posthumanism and technology? Can posthumanism have a politics—postcolonial or feminist? Are postmodernism and poststructuralism posthumanist? What happens when critical theory meets Hollywood cinema? What links posthumanism to science fiction. Posthumanism addresses these and other (...)

    The ‘Inkredible’ Roland Barthes.Neil Badmington - 2008 - Paragraph 31 (1):84-94.
    The opening of the fourth session of The Neutral — the course given by Roland Barthes at the Collège de France in 1977–8 — is marked by a dramatic spillage of ink. Rather than take this as an incidental, trivial moment, I read it as one of the many ‘ink blots’ that colour the work of Barthes. Tracing his ‘almost obsessive relation to writing instruments’ and the material act of inscription, this essay relates the ‘ink blots’ to the development of (...)

    Punctum Saliens: Barthes, Mourning, Film, Photography.Neil Badmington - 2012 - Paragraph 35 (3):303-319.
    In the light of the publication of Roland Barthes's Mourning Diary, this essay examines how the influential theory of the photographic punctum has cinematic roots which are repressed in Barthes's Camera Lucida. My aim is not to repeat familiar arguments about how Barthes's ‘The Third Meaning’ anticipates the photographic punctum in a cinematic context; it is, rather, to attend specifically to Mourning Diary as a much closer, more precise precursor which has been visible only since 2009, and which casts new (...)

    The bothersome details of the world: Richard Byrd, Little America, and the problem of retreat.Neil Badmington - 2017 - Journal for Cultural Research 21 (4):414-429.
    In 1934, Admiral Richard E. Byrd retreated from his crew at the remote Little America encampment in Antarctica to an even more isolated setting: a small underground shack on ‘the dark immensity of the Ross Ice Barrier, on a line between Little America and the South Pole’. Byrd remained there in solitude for a little over four months and later wrote about his ordeal in Alone. This essay considers Byrd’s account alongside his earlier Antarctic writings in order to ask what (...)

    An Undefined Something Else: Barthes, Culture, Neutral Life.Neil Badmington - 2020 - Theory, Culture and Society 37 (4):65-76.
    How might Roland Barthes’ posthumously published account of the Neutral invite us to rethink the very activity of cultural analysis? How did Barthes the cultural critic change when, towards the end of his career, he described and desired Neutral Life? Cultural criticism has often taken Barthes’ early semiological work as a guide, but this essay examines how we might need to reorient ourselves as critics, shift our stance, learn to look and live differently in the light of Barthes’ later focus (...)
