According to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, rural areas cover 97% of the land area of the U.S. and are inhabited by 60 million people—about 19% of the U.S. population (“New Census Data Show Differences Between Urban and Rural Populations,” Dec. 2016). In an age of heightened political rhetoric and deepened ideological divide, what does it mean to identify as a feminist in a rural community? What does it mean to practice feminism in a rural community? How do those of us who teach in rural communities engage with the various definitions and practices of feminism in ways that best benefit our students?

CFP Panel at the 2019 South Atlantic MLA conference (Atlanta, GA: Nov. 8 - 10) Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become a central tenet of American life. Neoliberal thought subsequently spread across the globe in a variety of forms (via channels including Hollywood and regulatory bodies such as the International Monetary Fund). Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists. This panel will investigate symptoms of – and responses to – this shift in the areas of literature and media studies.

Proposed book on Margaret Atwood's Borders and Intersections of Languages, Cultures and Peoples

Margaret Atwood is a world-renowned writer who has always identified herself specifically as a Canadian writer, even at a time when it was argued (even within Canada) that Canadian literature didn't exist.  Her identity as a Canadian is very important to her but, over the course of her career, her work reveals a progression to a more global viewpoint.  Atwood's earlier work invites an examination primarily of internal borders (between Canadian provinces, between urban and natural spaces and in the psychic spaces of her characters) where her later work more obviously offers opportunities to examine intersections of transnational spaces.

This session seeks papers on the relationship between literature and healing, broadly conceptualized.  As theories and practices such as catharsis and bibliotherapy suggest, literature has functioned, over the course of its history, as a source of healing in times of need; “We need elegies,” Countee Cullen writes in the closing line of a poem entitled “Threnody for a Brown Girl.”  The expositions on literature and healing date back to ancient times and continue up to the present:  Apollo is not only the god of poetry but also of medicine; Aristotle’s theory of catharsis portrays how tragedies allow readers to experience extremities in safety, as part of the purification of their soul; D. H.
