THE LAWLESSNESS OF DEMAND BEFORE SUPPLY. It is the winter of 1991–92 within a memory-poor social geography of faded yellow ribbons and televisionary tales of recession-driven death squads, straight whitemale corporate gang sexual violence and economic harassment, and the always only apparent triumph of CAPITAL (almost) world-wide. Within this geography, within and along the borders of this New World Order, I’m trying to collage together a sociological story about some of the critical possibilities and limitations of social science in a world gone ultramodern. By employing collage (w)riting strategies I sometimes feel as if I’m inviting a dialogue between constructionism, as a potentially critical sociological perspective, and constructivism, as a militant “art form” committed to blurring the distinction between critical research and performative remembrance and to the political denaturalization of seemingly real social facts by such strategies as synchronic juxtaposition, montage, and noticeably open-ended assemblage demanding active audience engagement and participatory re(w)ritings. Sometimes I feel like I’m repeating myself.
