The Politics and Opacities of Grievability Abstract: The question of who constitutes the properly “grievable” subject has never been more important. With the racially and ethnically motivated attacks at the Christchurch Mosque in New Zealand and bombings in Sri Lanka, worldwide refugee crises, along with the #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo movements in the United States, the global politics of violence is increasingly visible and an important area of intervention.

The animal turn has become hugely influential in medieval scholarship over the last decade. However, the contributions of ecofeminism and queer ecology have often been side-lined. Nevertheless, scholars are increasingly finding these modes of analysis to offer useful ways of exploring the role of the animal in medieval romance texts.

In a 2009 article in American Literary History, Richard Gray critiqued the production of post-9/11 novels, writing that such literary works “simply assimilate the unfamiliar into familiar structures.” Yet scholarly work on contemporary U.S. fiction seems to return again and again to a focus on literary production in terms of its relationship to the 2001 tragedy. In this panel, we seek to interrogate the way the concept of “post” has come to influence and, perhaps, even define the American literary canon.
