Defining, Locating, and Addressing Bullying in the WPA Workplace

Given the prevalence of workplace bullying and the often unique and/or vulnerable position of WPAs (e.g., untenured WPAs; WPAs who have high campus visibility but lack the power to make hiring/firing/budget decisions; WPAs in literature departments, etc.), it is important to dedicate resources to defining behaviors and patterns of bullying and offer specific strategies for agentive responses. Much of WPA literature has addressed issues of power associated with WPA work (e.g., Dew and Horning; George; Mountford; Pauliny; Strickland and Gunner; Schell; White). However, workplace bullying has not yet received focused attention in WPA scholarship.

Comparative literature has long been a safe-haven for interdisciplinary practices in research and teaching. Although many in our field rightly worried that the popularity of interdisciplinary positions would just mean fewer hires in the humanities; scholars who wanted to voyage outside of traditional disciplines found encouraging communities in Comparative Literature rather than just the skeptical raised eyebrow of parochial disciplinarity.

Staging "America"

Narratives of U.S. nationhood have often been embedded in institutionalized cultural production, especially public performance or spectacle. Early networked television and radio broadcasting, debates over commissions for new theatres, and the extra-athletic spectacles of the Superbowl offer examples. The implicit stakes of nationhood also circulate in less commemorated modes of spectacle, such as prominent performance-based U.S. reality television competitions (America's Got Talent, and American Idol for example) that invest the relationship between cultural production and national identity in the bodies of "everyday" Americans, thus amplifying certain narratives of aspirational performance as incarnations of American optimism.

[UPDATE] ACLA Panel: "All In the Family: The Literary and Cultural Politics of Incest" - SEPTEMBER 23

On this panel, we would like to consider the concept of incest in relation to society across a number of time periods and cultural forms. Incest may stem from an impulse to purity–keeping bloodlines clean and families insular–and at the same time it may result in deformity and monstrosity. Regardless of the character of an incestuous liaison, incest is in every instance bound up with the patriarchal, heteronormative social structure of the family, either disrupting this order or constituting it.
