Centuries ago, Aristotle fashioned a term that brought literature and psychology face to face: catharsis (psychological or mental purification of the feelings). From that time onwards, literature and human psyche have been correlated either by various writers, philosophers, critics, or by means of several techniques or movements. Not only was it tragedy that combined the elements of psychology with literary production, it was also novel, poetry, short story and even some psychoanalytical theories that brought psyche and literature together.

The goal is to create a space wherein concepts that seem to linger at the edge of the digital humanities like race, gender, power, and disability may be explored in light of the new methods and perspectives that the application of digital tools furnish.

Achille Mbembe (2003) used the term ‘necropolitics’ to account for the existence of ‘death worlds’ within postcolonial geopolitical spaces. While work in biopolitics has privileged the dynamics of ‘making live and letting die,’ Mbembe highlights the importance of both, extending lives and making deaths.

Gendering PostNature

Genders Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This special issue of Genders invites essays, reviews, roundtables, and creative work that address the emergent category of “postnature” in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene. We seek interventions across local and global frameworks that consider the ways postnature is informed by gender identities, norms, discourses, and practices, as well as their socio-political, scientific, popular, and aesthetic regulation. As a disciplinary norm deployed to police the “unnatural,” nature has proved to be a labile signifier used to endorse or discredit a wide spectrum of cultural formations.
