Revisiting the Elegy: Mourning and Resistance

“And there is pause, a breathspace in the strife;/A spirit brave has passed beyond the mists/And vapors that obscure the sun of life./And
Ethiopia, with bosom torn,/Laments the passing of her noblest born.”

Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

 Time, Space, and Epistemic Violence in Hemispheric American Literature

This panel seeks papers that explore the depiction of time and space in hemispheric American Literature and the ways in which traditional conceptualizations may be read as a form of epistemic violence. How do the depictions of physical spaces in works from the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States interact with complex configurations of time as progressive, circular, or even anti-linear and irregular—narrative time as composed of a randomized trail of apexes and abysses? How does this literature address/redress/move beyond the concepts of time and space and the harm caused by the imposition of Western paradigms?
