We proudly announce the series “No Crisis,” a Los Angeles Review of Books special series on the state of criticism now. Caleb Smith, along with graduate student, Merve Emre and with LARB’s executive editor for the humanities, Sarah Mesle.
“No Crisis” is a Los Angeles Review of Books special series considering the state of critical thinking and writing — literary interpretation, art history, and cultural studies — in the 21st century. A new installment to the series will be released at the beginning of each month through the fall of 2015. Our aim, as our introductory essay explains, is to “show that the art of criticism is flourishing, rich with intellectual power and sustaining beauty, in hard times.”
