Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences' expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and analytical tool to explore questions not only of sexual difference, but also of sexual orientation, race, class, or culture.

Material Religion and the Market

“The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year. Calculating how many Bibles are sold in the United States is a virtually impossible task” says “The Good Book Business” article published in The New Yorker in 2006, underlines the billion dollar industry of Bible-publishing in the U.S.

Panel description:

NeMLA 2020–Cowboys and Capitalists: Mythic Figures of Masculinity in Nineteenth-Century American Literature

updated:

Diana H. Polley, Professor of English/Southern New Hampshire University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This NeMLA roundtable will engage the subject of masculinity in nineteenth-century American literature and culture, specifically through the landscape of two opposing mythic masculine figures: the American cowboy and the American capitalist. This session invites proposals that focus on either or both of these two critical representations of masculinity. How does the image of the cowboy and/or capitalist function in nineteenth-century American literature and culture and, more broadly, allow us to understand the complexities of masculinity and gender in nineteenth-century American society? Furthermore, how might we begin to trace these nineteenth-century cultural constructions in current conversations surrounding toxic masculinity in America?
