UPDATED Not-So-Dead Women: Renegotiating Femininity and Death in Literature and Pop Culture

updated: 
Friday, September 13, 2019 - 5:08pm
NeMLA 2020 (Boston)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Women’s corpses, such as those of Snow White or Ophelia, are often depicted as a beautiful and passive objects, which has led scholars to posit cultural reflections concerning tacit assumptions in the link between femininity and death. In relation to modern literature and art, scholars such as Elizabeth Bronfen (Over Her Dead Body), Elizabeth Grosz (Volatile Bodies), Sarah Goodwin (Death and Representation) argue that dead women are an nexus of morbidity, alterity, and beauty that unconsciously encapsulates the anxiety of the inexpressible event of death, and, as such, dead women are given the value of the “other” in the most macabre fashion.
