Announcing a competition:
Which scholars should be on the list of “Top humanists of the last century” but are not?
The person who names the greatest number of such names by the end of the day (12 midnight) EST next Sunday — using the methodology specified there (a simple Google Scholar search) — will win a copy of my book Ecologies of the Moving Image.
The rule is that the names must be listed first in the comments section of that post.
With one exception: James Stanescu, who blogs at Critical Animal, has already named Walter Benjamin, Emile Durkheim, and Antonio Gramcsi, so they are out of the running — and he is in the lead at 3, since the prize was first announced on Facebook. It’s now gone public.
