Trans-spaces in 19th Century France

19th-century France is known as a time of transgression, an upheaval of societal norms. But aside from the multiple political revolutions, this time period also gave way to figures that managed to exist between the binaries of society. Examples of transgression, transformation, and transgender can be found throughout the century, ranging from Romanticism’s “génie sans sexe”- George Sand- to J.K. Huysman’s decadent, androgynous, dandy- Des Esseintes. This proposed session invites papers that examine representations of these trans-spaces in and around the literature of the 19th century. Papers could consider biographical, literary, or historical moments of “trans”.

Visualizing Change: Graphic Arts and Literature in the Contemporary Arab World

Eid Mohamed and Barkuzar Dubbati (Guest Editors) / Arab Studies Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic literature and arts in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of means of production of these works. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and independent media for publishing. It proved that seekers of political change do not need the sponsorship of traditional media.

An important wave of this reassessment has focused on film, and on Hollywood film in particular, challenging the notion that women were powerless pawns in silent and classical Hollywood and beyond.
