The Male Empire under the Female Gaze
 
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’.

This proposed panel seeks papers that will analyze the "deep dish"
of "literary snap queens" in American literature, drama, or cinema. The
term "snap queen" generally refers to effeminate queer identities, who
wield words as subversive weapons against established authority. "Deep
dish" signifies linguistic acts laced with camp appeal and witticisms.
The discourse may be specifically rooted in gossip, routine conversation,
or instances of repartee, and its practice is not confined to queer
identities. Thus, characters possesing a camp appeal or the authors and
playwrights who give them their lines and personas may serve as points of
inquiry toward analyzing the verbal art and "deep dish" of literary snap

Gilman and Visual Culture: Beyond the “Florid Arabesque”

American Literature Association 20th Annual Conference
May 21-24, 2009
The Westin Copley Place - Boston, MA

In Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s corpus, “The Yellow Wall-Paper” may only be
the most obvious example of the relays between visual surfaces, politics,
décor, and words. From visual surfaces very clearly detailed (the titular
object in “The Rocking-Chair,” for instance) to visual information left
rather hazy (certain architectural details of Herland), Gilman used her
ekphrastic powers creatively and to various literary and political
effects.
