For many Latinx communities, the contemporary period can best be described as disastrous:  natural disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in 2017, followed by the equally disastrous federal response; the sustained crisis at the US southern border, created through a series of cruel, inhumane, extra-legal, and illegal policies; ICE raids at workplaces that force children to come home from their first day of school to find their parents gone; indefinite separation and detention of children and families; US response to the crisis in Venezuela; detention of US citizens for suspicion of being undocumented; mass deportation with no promise of due process.

The past few decades have been crucial for the dismantling of theory, formerly understood as a monolithic concept, applicable to a wide range of epochs and regions. Rather than a timeless or non-spatial concept, theory represents “a historically circumscribed mode of thinking about literature” (Galin Tihanov). Researchers informed by Edward Saidʼs “traveling theory” (James Clifford, Caren Kaplan, Mieke Bal) have also insisted on the enormous pressure of context in shaping and reshaping theory. Convincing metanarratives of itinerant international canonization in the 20th century literature (Mads Rosendahl Thomsen) have opened the theoretical debate.

Making Space: Literary Constructions of Identity and Community

April 24, 2020

A Graduate Conference in the Department of English, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

The concept of “making space” is both powerful and problematic. Making space for different identities and communities feels necessary—as Virginia Woolf so importantly emphasizes, a “room of one’s own” is imperative for claiming, creating, and expressing intellectual identity. Yet mere rhetoric about making space for difference risks condescension and absolution from the difficult work of community formation. This tension encourages us to ask: who is making space for whom? Who is included and excluded in this space-making?
