Sunday, September 30, 2018

 

This roundtable will discuss practices of teaching the literary-cultural portrayal of modern global (ethno)nationalisms and the concurrent rise and proliferation of terrorism as well as the role that the “terror threat” plays in contemporary reactionary politics and policies. Our focus will be on the teaching of texts—both literary and cultural--written not by mainstream western authors and theorists, but by non-Western/diasporic writers and commentators so as to foreground the perspective of the Western Other(s).

Classical Greek Female Archetypes in Latin American Literature

updated: 
Friday, August 24, 2018 - 12:33pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Latin American poets, dramatists, and narrators, especially female ones, have appropriated the classical Greek heroines (Antigone, Clytemnestra, Medea, etc.) and adapted them to a Latin American social and political context to protest government violence and abuse, machismo and the victimization of women, and the male-female love relationship, among other themes. This panel will examine these works and see how classical Greek heroines have been transfigured and remodeled to fit a Latin American context.
Latin America has always been characterized by a dialectic of tradition and innovation. Revisiting and reconfiguring the classics has been a technique to elude censorship and address sensitive issues. This is an area that deserves further study.

“I could conceive of another Abraham,” Kafka writes in a letter to a friend, “who was prepared to satisfy the demand for a sacrifice immediately, with the promptness of a waiter, but was unable to bring it off because he could not get away, being indispensable; the household needed him, there was perpetually something or other to put in order, the house was never ready; for without having his house ready, without having something to fall back on, he could not leave. This the Bible also realized, for it says: ‘He set his house in order.’”
