What or who is the Production Team?

Bad Subjects is a collective, organized somewhat differently than other magazines because of the shared labor and noncommercial status. Because we cannot pay our authors, editors, or production staff for their labor, we have chosen to organize our magazine somewhat differently than the alienating hierarchy common in the publishing industry. Our editors are called the Production Team (PT). Each issue is edited by two or three "issue editors" from the PT. The editorial work of preparing articles for publication is shared by the issue editors. Issue editors make decisions about which submissions will be included in any issue, though they may ask for advice from the Production Team as a whole. The Team currently includes:

Bad Subjects #86:
The End of Memory


Neither history nor literature have ended, but memory is fading fast. Francis Fukayama wrote in 1992 that history had ended because global techno-capitalism had silenced all opposing ideologies, but global techno-capitalism was, in fact, only doing so much, for so few. The end of memory does not signify the end of any ideology or the supremacy of any ideology, but merely the end of being interested in or able to remember, which means the end of any usuable critique of Market Rule. The end of memory has already made "the new Viet Nam war", this century's US war in Iraq, possible. It has also made possible the reappearance of the extreme Right behind the 1990s Contract with America, now called The Tea Party.
