Globalization and Cultural Production in the Maghreb

19th-century France is known as a time of transgression, an upheaval of societal norms. But aside from the multiple political revolutions, this time period also gave way to figures that managed to exist between the binaries of society. Examples of transgression, transformation, and transgender can be found throughout the century, ranging from Romanticism’s “génie sans sexe”- George Sand- to J.K. Huysman’s decadent, androgynous, dandy- Des Esseintes. This proposed session invites papers that examine representations of these trans-spaces in and around the literature of the 19th century. Papers could consider biographical, literary, or historical moments of “trans”.
In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.
Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."
