Sandra Cisneros: Intersections and Crossings

MELUS Annual Conference, Cincinnati, OH, March 21-24, 2019

Sandra Cisneros is perhaps best known for The House on Mango Street, a “little” book that explores the interior life of a Mexican American girl growing up in a Chicago neighborhood.  Although this close focus has tended to position Cisneros as a writer of the minor and the domestic, this panel will investigate the breadth and range of her work and career, positioning her and her work within an intersectional framework that attends in particular to ways in which Cisneros identifies herself and her work as expansively multi-ethnic and multi-national.

Anti-Oppressive Solidarities: "Third World" Feminism's Leadership against Imperialism

50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.

“Women Don’t Ask: Negotiating the Academy” [Women’s Caucus] Katarina Stenke, University of Greenwich, K.Stenke@greenwich.ac.uk AND Youmi Jung, Texas A&M University; youmi23@tamu.edu  For many women, the idea of negotiation provokes anxiety, as it implies conflict. Convinced that negotiation means one must be aggressive, self-absorbed, and dominant and that negotiation strategies are defined by assertive language, distrust, and uncertain boundaries, many women tend to avoid negotiating.

In Stephen King’s Gothic (2011) John Sears asserts that rereading King represents ‘an exercise in the extension of repetition, in the act of rereading an oeuvre already deeply structured … by its own engagement in the Gothic habit of rereading … To reread King would be to enter … and perhaps to become lost within, a labyrinth of intra- and intertextual relations, an immense and complex textual space’ (2). Sears’s framing of King’s writing is a critical response to David Punter’s question about the susceptibility of King’s writing to rereading (1996).
