CFP for the 2018 ACLA Panel: Tattoos as/in Literature: Beyond the Semiotic and the Bodily.  After the “linguistic turn,” and at the intersection of (post)structuralism, deconstruction, and the evolving series of critical discourses on materiality, bodies, the non-human, theory and literary criticism have discovered a need to read beyond words and purely linguistic signification in general. Images and bodies appear no longer as limits of discourse, or as what needs to be translated into words, but as surfaces of signification in themselves. Derrida’s own spatial and visual experimentation in his writing pointed towards the need to consider the inseparable links between words, images, and bodies, not only in literature, but also in theory and philosophy.

The term ‘generation’ has played a formative role in literary histories of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to articulate notions of evolution, rupture, and continuity. Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy. The first term indicates how generations define themselves or are defined on the basis of a shared ‘space of experience’ (Koselleck); the second term points at the relation generations maintain to what or who precedes them.

Jordan Peele’s horror film, Get Out (2017) just became the highest-grossing debut project for a writer-director with an original screenplay (beating out the prior holder of that record, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez’s 1999 film The Blair Witch Project).

 

Get Out is not only an enormous box office success but it has won a critical acclaim unusual for a horror film—currently (as of early April, 2017) standing at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes with 225 positive and only one negative review.
