Rendering Rituals: On Memory and Memorializing

updated: 
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 1:15pm
English Graduate Student Association at Louisiana State University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Mardi Gras as an event, a reiteration of experience across time, and a kind of ritual renders the new and the old as occurring simultaneously: our past always directly affects our present. This temporal boundary crossing reiterates and simultaneously invokes the past in every instance. In Gender Trouble, Judith Butler describes ritual as related to the repetition of gender performance across time, which denaturalizes the concept and instantiates gender as socially constructed. What if we apply Butler’s logic of the ritual to other concepts of human experience, such as race, religion, sexuality, and disability? Orienting ourselves within this Butlerian logic, we as scholars might think about how to interpret these ritual practices in memory.
