So deeply sad to hear of Lauren Berlant’s death. Her work on effect, laughter, humorlessness, comedy, feminist theory, the slapstick of survival, cruel optimism, & the aesthetic/collective politics of fantasy have been such touchstones for me. RIP to a brilliant feminist scholar; she tweeted.

I am devastated by Lauren Berlant’s passing. Their brilliance changed the world. I wrote a review of The Hundreds last year titled Worldmaking In A Shitstorm which is actually what Lauren did for so many of us: creating worlds out of the disasters of the present.
I had the incredible pleasure of reviewing the manuscript of Lauren’s next book for Duke U Press, On The Inconvenience Of Other People, and I desperately hope that book will be published. We all need to be inconvenienced by Lauren’s breathtaking brilliance, again and again. RIP.
