Ed Simon

In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.

Goddess Studies Unit Call for Papers: Loyola Marymount University, March 2017

updated: 
Monday, April 25, 2016 - 5:54pm
American Academy of Religion, Western Region

The Goddess Studies Unit seeks to retrieve the narrative importance of female figures in mythology and religion and works to infuse equity into the nature of exclusion. How does this year's theme, "Religion, Race, and Racism," intersect with female (cis/LGBTQ/inclusive) figures and the study of women in narrative and in culture? Are there goddesses, goddess scholarship, or goddess-centric worship that subvert racialization and/or colonization? Are there figures that have subverted demonization due to race or gender or who have been claimed to combat such "Othering"? Contrarily, are there figures that have been suppressed or marginalized due to race and/or gender that are currently being reclaimed, reinterpreted, or re-discovered? How?

This panel aims to celebrate Butler's life and works by presenting on a variety of topics, particularly the conference's theme of Utopia/Dystopia. Other possible paper topics include a pedagogical study of Butler's work, a theological approach to Butler's most celebrated works (Kindred and the Parable series), and an analysis of Butler's treatment of space and migration throughout her oeuvre.

'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)
