From a lost silent film to Japanese animation, LMM Montgomery’s Anne Shirley is one of the most enduring fictional characters, finding life on the shelves and screens of each generation since the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908.  The release of Netflix’s new adaptation, released internationally as Anne With An E, prompted a range of responses from generations who had grown up with the books and the iconic Kevin Sullivan/CBC mini-series from the 1980s. This new Anne was darker and edgier, her fragility rawer than before – but was she ‘our Anne-girl’?

Whether it is some sort of histrionic hyperbole or an actual description of our current state of affairs, it’s not a novel assertion to say that the West seems to be on the verge of collapse. If this is the case, the time and esotericism that psychoanalysis requires seems, yet again, to position it entirely on the axis of outdated luxury rather than sophisticated, trenchant, or even useful political analysis.

Evolving Women in Film

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 11:01am
Northeast MLA 2019 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Open discussion of how women are portrayed in film should examine how those portrayals evolve over time to reflect changing cultural values. Women have fulfilled roles that exhibit their historically subservient or sexualized positions in society, among others. Over the decades the gender identity of women has fluctuated to include powerful women, emotionally strong women, lesbian women, and even neurologically atypical women. These identities reflect the expanding possibilities that society recognizes as more likely and more mainstream.
