Serial Forms (ACLA Seminar)

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 - 11:58am
ACLA 2016

In response to an echoing call for a renewed attention to form, this ACLA seminar will examine a particularly rich formal classification: the serial. Conceiving of serial form broadly to encompass a variety of sequential and collected narratives, from installments and episodes to versions, revisions, witnesses, releases, copies, variations, collections, and cycles, we will ask how narratives in parts challenge and invigorate our critical approaches to narrative form. While criticism of serial form tends to center on Charles Dickens and look forward to twentieth-century radio and television, the formal conventions of seriality – the sequence and collection of narratives – extends far beyond this fictional field.

Between Vulnerability and Resilience: Representations of the Veil in Literature, Film, and Fine Arts

Umme Al-wazedi and Afrin Zeenat

The veil's ancient and modern history and its resurgence in our time is an important subject for discussion for those of us posing new questions about women and Islam in literature, film, and fine arts. In Europe and the U.S., the veil is often presented through errors of conceptualizations. The frequent and numerous discussions on the veil's role and function prove that the media, in particular, seems to be obsessed with it. Recurrently, these discussions run along essentialist and ahistorical lines associating Islam with the ideology of shame and honor. Moreover, the Muslim immigrant "problem" in Europe and the U.S. and the fear of Islam and Muslims in connection with terrorism has heightened the controversy on the issue of the veil.
