Kriegsspiel is a blogging experiment to help me prepare for my comprehensive exams. Here I will map out some preliminary groundwork for a dissertation on the relationship between contemporary literature & theory and avant-garde concepts of military governance and administration. I will be writing a few times a week on various theorists and novelists, of greater and lesser renown, thinking about violence, war, technology and the state. A lot of this writing will persist in the mode of the “theorist-A-poses-this-problem-effectively-but-understates-this-more-primordial-problem-that-theorist-B-poses” blog style that is usually such tedium to read. I will try to leaven the vacuum-desiccated dryness of the material by posting customized Taylor Swift cyberwarfare memes. Lists to follow.
Dulce bellum inexpertis, baby!
