St John's Humanities Review Spring 2016 Issue: Change and Interpretation or, a Marxist Approach to Art and Politics

updated: 
Sunday, January 31, 2016 - 5:22pm
St John's Humanities Review

Slavoj Žižek has suggested that, after the spectacular failure of party-states in the twentieth century, it is no longer time for the Left to change the world, but again to interpret it. Of course, Žižek's directive comes in the wake of popular anti-capitalist and anti-racist revolts around the world which have reinvigorated militants and scholars alike: from New York to Cairo, Kobanî to Ferguson. There is, evidently, no easy division between action and interpretation, even in the absence of any major world power designating itself as Communist. And yet, Žižek's plea must be a tempting one for those working in the current, increasingly globalized university system.

Women and Work in Literature: Special Session, Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association Conference, November 11-13, 2016, Pasadena, California

Session Description:
How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? How do race, class, sexuality and national identity affect women's ability to define both the meaning of their work and their ability to engage in work?
