The Coming Woke Catastrophe: A Critical Examination of Woke Culture

Author: 

Heitzman, Chris

Credentials: 

Chris Heitzman has been a lawyer in private practice for the past 15 years and a keen observer of social and political affairs.

Widespread popular belief holds that woke culture, increasingly known as “wokeism,” is the great progressive awakening of our time. Its followers and proponents believe that their awakening is one of seeing a better world without discrimination, unfairness, or injustice. Those who refuse to subscribe to woke culture are seen as hateful people who must advocate the opposite of what woke culture claims to stand for. Increasingly anyone who questions the woke message is shouted down, de-platformed, and even cancelled. But is there something less attractive about woke thinking beneath the labels?

The Face: A Cultural Geography

Author: 

Roth, Marty

Credentials: 

Marty Roth is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Minnesota.

The face circulates through most things of this world: anything that has presence, that presents itself, that has a front, a surface, an appearance, an aspect, a reputation, or honor – anything that confronts, opposes, or defies – has a face. And the face is a front: from the back it is just a head, a radically different entity. In this exciting new book, distinguished philosopher Marty Roth pursues considerations of the human face in art, literature, philosophy, and other manifestations of human culture.

What is “cancel culture.” A new phrase in popular circulation for less than two years, it has provoked passionate denunciations from observers concerned with civil liberties, especially rights of free speech and expression, and apologetic defenses from opponents who advocate equity and accountability in light of new mores. Still others deny that “cancel culture” exists at all, while many claim never to have heard of it.
