In the spirit of the April Fool’s Day release date, this episode is themed around ‘humor,’ featuring conversations with Heidi Hakkarainen, author of Comical Modernity: Popular Humour and the Transformation of Urban Space in Late Nineteenth Century Vienna and Veronika Pehe, author of Velvet Retro: Postsocialist Nostalgia and the Politics of Heroism in Czech Popular Culture. We’ll close today’s salon with a reading of a poem by Colin James, “The Betrothal of a Semi Compliant Therefore Semi Coherent, Narcissus,” previously published in Critical Survey.
