Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

“The philosophy of lying can be full of dark corners” (Saint Augustine, On Lying, 395 A.D.). Over time, in all spheres of the human experience, the attempts to define the concept of ‘lying’ have been numerous and have resulted in a dichotomous relationship with either ‘truth’ or ‘reality’. Both elusive and tempting, lying is a mode of communicate and influence others’ beliefs and behaviours which reveals itself in a wide range of forms: imagination, creation, invention, artifice, (dis)simulation, omission, pretence, change, disfiguration, deception, forgery, manipulation, etc.

TRUTHINESS

April 29, 2017 @ Stanford University 

“Fiction must stick to facts, and the truer the facts the better the fiction...” -Virginia Woolf

Nietzsche defines truth as “a mobile army of metaphors, metonymies, anthropomorphisms, in short, a sum of human relations…which, after lengthy use, seem firm, canonical and binding to a people.” For whom is it binding, and in what sense are they bound?
