Rendering Rituals: On Memory and Memorializing—Feb. 7-9th

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - 12:13pm
English Graduate Student Association at Louisiana State University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 12, 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.

Science fiction is a genre inherently replete witha multitude of systems. From computers, robots, cyborgs and androids to human-animal studies, ecological systems, management practices and (agro-)industrial systems, science fiction has portrayed a variety of different and sometimes interlocking sets of physical systems. Ideas of knowledge generation and systematisation are also central to the genre, from the social and hard sciences, art, language and communication, right through to the systematisation and dissemination of knowledge.
