    Beschreibung "In his article "Necropolitics and Contemporary Hungarian Literature and Cinema" Ryan
    Michael discusses aspects of the concept of necropower (Mbembe) applied to contemporary Hungarian
    literature and cinema. Kehoe argues that his analysis provides models of postcolonial "aesthetic acts"
    that disrupt, destabilize, and ultimately subvert the global regimes to which Achille Mbembe refers.
    Accordingly, Hungary's status as a postcolony is discussed within the context of Steven Tötösy de
    Zepetnek's and David Chioni Moore's contention that the parameters of postcolonial cultural analysis
    need to be expanded to account for Central and East Europe's transition out of the Soviet sphere of
    influence. Further, Kehoe incorporates models of "transitology" from the discipline of comparative
    politics to the study of culture and literature of the region. Through an analysis of two contemporary
    Hungarian texts — László Krasznahorkai's novel War and War and Nimród Antal's film Kontroll —
    Kehoe analyses narrative strategies at work in not only the interrogation of necropower but also the
    construction of a politics of resistance." (Information des Anbieters)
