In outlining her presidential theme for the 2021 MLA Conference, Judith Butler writes of the precarity we face in the humanities and the vulnerabilities of human and nonhuman lives in the face of climate change and the “dominance of market values.” However, Butler’s outlook is not defeatist; her focus on persistence encourages reflections on alternative future possibilities centered on collective resistance and survival.

Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid: Representing Taboo in Contemporary Pop Culture

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 12:56pm
Dr. Christina Fawcett, Dr. Marc Ouellette & Dr. Delores Phillips
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 1, 2020

We are pleased to invite contributions to an edited volume that analyzes sexual taboo in contemporary popular culture, with an eye toward theorizing taboo sexual practices using frameworks that reveal the uncomfortable or silenced spaces that surround non-normative sexual desire. We seek chapters that focus on how different cultural products normalize the taboo, bringing deviant behavior into mainstream spaces that challenge the traditional relegation of non-normative behavior to fringe spaces. We invite readings of literary, film, interactive and fan-created works that reveal positive representations of taboo, opening our readers to a sympathetic experience of deviancy and socially proscribed behavior.

At its heart, this is a shift away from the exclusive focus on cultural ideas about the child in the work of scholars like Jacqueline Rose and Karín Lesnik-Obserstein toward scholarly work that also considers the lives, texts, and matter of actual children.
