Jon Greenaway - TheLitCritGuy
Jon Greenaway is TheLitCritGuy. He’s a horror fiction scholar, a media critic, and a political theorist, reader and writer who makes his living exploring the heaviest of important texts, contemplating the deepest of issues and explaining the Very Big Picture. And this seems like a very good time for that.
He talks about the reason contemporary politics is quite literally a horror show, our uneasy relationship between technology and the human body, what it means to make art in the age of late capitalism, the role of the public intellectual, the failings of the education system, what we should perhaps be doing with our brains (regardless of whether we are scientists, artists, academics, business people or ‘consumers’) and how to be hopeful in the face of it all.
