Abstract or Summary
  • Modern Apostles actively attempts to blur the line between academic scholarship and narrative fiction for the purpose of satirizing the social and the political assumptions of its contemporary moment. By appropriating the loudest voices in dominant American culture, the inter-textual narratives (1) call attention to the voices that go unheard, ignored, while (2) recognizing that there is an abundance of absurdity in what contemporary culture simultaneously produces and consumes; there is no need to create make more absurdity, and finally (3) are transparent about their dialogic nature—how they instantly are added to the cacophony of voices they mock. Humor and levity, the brand of these narratives, make the intolerable palatable in a culture that touts itself as tolerant.
