Call for Papers
Annual ACLA Conference
March 26-29, 2009
Harvard University

Papers are invited for an ACLA seminar on “The Male Empire under the Female
Gaze”.

Imperialism is undeniably a male-oriented and male-dominated affair.
However, the ‘female’ element in the process cannot and should not be
overlooked. The womenfolk made their own contribution â"€ seemingly
insignificant, yet indispensable in reality â"€ to the construction and
consolidation of the Empire. Mary Procida rightly reminds us that the
‘empire may have been masculine, but it certainly was not exclusively male’.

the nineteenth-century novel. Novels have participated in directing and
redirecting the discourse of the “human”â€"the human as closed system, as
biopolitical species-being unit, as rational individualâ€"by charting
interiorities that are deemed to constitute a “human.”

Hugo Rios

Whether committed to “clear the ruins” of a traumatic and guilty past or
simply in an outburst of youthful energy determined to do away with “le
cinéma du papa,” new waves embody a paradox: they want to break away from
an exhausted filmic language which has colonized the “old” national
cinema and give voice to an aesthetically and politically new, local
language which would, nevertheless, reintegrate them within a global
