It’s been more than 20 years since the release of Danny Boyle’s cult classic adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s gritty novel about a group of heroin addicts in Edinburgh, Trainspotting, but the 2017 release of the follow-up, T2: Trainspotting, begs the question found in more than one headline “but did we really need a sequel?” Welsh’ oeuvre with and since Trainspotting has situated his work within the category of being what James Gardner describes as “transgressive fiction” or that which “violently attacks the center of culture” and is “literature of self-defined immorality, anguish, and degradation.” With this mission of transgression in mind, it seems odd that work by transgressive authors like Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk and

Encyclopedia of Sexism in American Cinema

This volume takes up the topic of sexism within American Cinema from its early days of film production to the present. Covering over 400 entries that include films, producers, directors, actresses, actors, genres, as well as conceptual and critical interpretations, the breadth and depth of this volume will generate some highly significant material for both academics and general audiences alike. The first of its kind—indeed there are no other encyclopedias that cover this topic anywhere on the market—The Encyclopedia of Sexism in American Cinema is a timely companion to the ever-growing field of critical film studies.

Bodies on the Line: Intersections between Gender and Dis|ability

gender forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

Thursday, February 15, 2018

For a long time the relationship between gender and dis|ability has been viewed in a subtractive or additive fashion, often pointing to the emasculation of men or double discrimination against women. The portrayal of dis|ability annihilating gender and exacerbating systems of oppression can be found in mainstream media and disciplinary scholarship alike. While identity is commonly explored through the axes of race, class, and gender, arguments have been put forward to include the category of the body or dis|ability (Smith & Hutchison 2006, Winker & Degele 2009, Walgenbach 2007).

Redefining Nation and Nationalism: A post-nineteenth century approach for a modern Medieval Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 5:37pm
International Congress on Medieval Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 10, 2017

The problematic use of ideas established in nineteenth century, using medieval literature and culture, to define nascent senses of nationalism lingers over the field of Medieval Studies. The nineteenth century saw the construction of Western European national identity using, for example, texts such as the Chanson de Roland, the Nibelungenleid, and the works of Thomas Malory. However, the biography of the French national hero Charlemagne was written by the German Einhard; the German national epic is about a group of Burgundians; and King Arthur has equal ties to his Celtic and French development as he does to his Englishness.
