Walter Benn Michaels is just completing a project, The Shape of the Signifier, on literary and theoretical writing since 1967. His new project - its working title is "The Beauty of a Social Problem" - will be about art and inequality between WWI and WWII, and his teaching over the next few years will probably focus on this period while continuing to engage the issues raised by some more recent texts.
