The essay will connect new materialisms back into the foundational readings. Think about ways the new materialisms complicate theories, reveal tensions, and/or open new possibilities. Foundational Readings Wimsatt and Beardsley â€œIntentional Fallacyâ€Wimsatt and Beardsley â€œAffective Fallacyâ€Rosenblatt â€œThe Literary Transactionâ€ New Materialisms Readings Bennett â€œThe Force of Thingsâ€ ( http://film.ncu.edu.tw/word/Vibrant-Matter.pdf ) Bennett â€œThe Agency of Assemblagesâ€Haraway â€œSympoiesisâ€How does a new materialist perspective consider agency in a new/different way? More specifically, why/how does this shift in understanding matter for texts and textuality?
