Introducing the Third World Archives Solidarity Project — Tropics of Meta

UC San Diego’s Lumumba Zapata Collective is happy to announce the Third World Archives Solidarity Project. We are seeking to develop a network of scholars and community members who may be interested in offering material support to DIY archives in the Global South which center the historical experiences of subaltern groups. It is summer now, […]

America and Russia: The Real Story Is Not What You Think — Tropics of Meta

We here at Tropics of Meta—and our sister podcast Doomed to Repeat—have been thinking about Russia for a while. Remember when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried a goofy PR gesture of handing Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov a «reset button,» meant to symbolize a desire to renew relations between the US and Russia? (The […]

Spend Your Dog Days with Barbara Fields and HP Lovecraft — Tropics of Meta

Way back in 2011, RR and I conceived the idea of a new series where writers would look back on, reread, and reassess the books that they loved or that influenced them over the years. Since then, many of our best contributors have revisited books by the likes of Roberts Caro and Wiebe, Barbara Fields, H.P. […]

Got Revolution? Jefferson Airplane’s Surrealistic Pillow, the Summer of Love, and Hippie Commercialism — Tropics of Meta

Don’t underestimate the Airplane, even if it’s easy to do. Sure, none of their other music exceeds the concise psychedelia of their best-known songs. Yes, they morphed into progressively lame versions of themselves throughout the seventies and eighties. And yes, their final iteration, Starship, inflicted the world with “We Built This City”, which might objectively […]

What Smokey & the Bandit Can Still Teach Us about the «New South» — Tropics of Meta

In the summer of 1977 a movie hit the multiplexes, twin cinemas, and dwindling drive-ins of America like a storm, making over a hundred million dollars (in 1977 dollars at that!) and leaving a lasting mark on the pop cultural landscape. The film I am talking about, of course, is Smokey and the Bandit. Overshadowed […]

A Hard Man in a Hard Time: Joe Manchin and the Fight for West Virginia — Tropics of Meta

First of all, as a Democrat, this needs to be said: to Hell with Joe Manchin. He has long been a member of the party in name only, and is to put it charitably, a toady for the coal industry and the NRA. As West Virginia has shifted even further to the right, Manchin has […]
