Returning after an extended and completely sold out run, Empire of the Son, written by and starring Tetsuro Shigematsu (former host of CBC Radio One’s The Roundup), is the story of two generations of CBC broadcasters and the radio silence between them. Shigematsu’s one-man show is this week’s feature story in the Georgia Straight. (Look for Tetsuro on the cover, dapper as ever.)

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
