An “Aesthetic Apartheid” occurs when the artistic innovations of a minoritized group are neglected due to their difference. [1] The focus on white and western innovations in literature have created the assumption that non-white avant-garde poetry, "however singular its ‘voice’ is not ‘formally innovative’.”[2] Examples of this bias are evident in monographs about the avant-garde, in which people of color are far too often excluded. Dorothy Wang writes that “anyone who has spent time in avant-garde poetry/and or critical circles in the States [….] knows that these circles are overwhelmingly unpigmented.”[3]

Seeking submissions for a collection of personal narratives that address and complicate Appalachian identities. Interested in voices that challenge and enrich simplistic valorizing or demonizing images of Appalachia. Contributors might range from scholars to poets to farmers to fiddlers—anyone who can add a voice to create a more full chorus—at times dissonant, at times harmonic.

Positionality: Place, Race, and Revolution in Indigenous Women’s Identity

updated: 
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 5:41pm
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Abstract:

This NeMLA panel will focus on the ways women have transformed space and place as central to their creation of a self-determined identity. In particular, it will focus on indigenous women’s relationship to geography and gender in the construction of self. Such an autonomous identity subverts the societal expectations and cultural geographies that have forced definitions of race and gender upon 19th- and 20th-century women. This panel would be an intersection of cultural geography, indigenous and ethnic studies, social justice issues, and eco/feminism.

Masculinity in Women’s Literature

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennett can never match the resourcefulness of his wife in her attempts to settle their five daughters in life; Edgar Linton in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is a caricature of manliness; in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, an only daughter, Molly Gibson, proves to be a better child to her father than a son, Osborne Hamley, who fails his parents; George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss presents Maggie Tulliver as a far stronger, braver and tougher character than her brother Tom.
