Africa and the World: Literature, Politics, and Global Geographies

The theme chosen for the 2017 conference at Yale seeks to engage with and interrogate recent shifts in critical and theoretical frameworks from regional, national, and “postcolonial” models towards “world literature” as a framework for understanding the literatures of the Global South. How useful is the category of world literature in our ongoing contestation of Eurocentrism in the interpretation of African literatures and cultures? What possibilities are offered by African literatures and cultures for (re)imagining the world, including the “world” posited by recent theorizations?

For the last two decades, critical approaches to literature of the global south have taken for granted the importance of history in shaping the present. The ongoing consequences of colonialism, nationalism, partitions, civil wars and other forms of actual and epistemic violence have been taken as key optics for understanding the crises and possibilities of the present. On the other hand, in many cases the discourse of futurity has been usurped by the proponents of neoliberalism who imagine that capitalism will release the formerly colonized countries from history’s handcuffs and pave the way toward a bold new future.

NeMLA 2017: Le corps masculin arabe comme objet de désir dans la littérature et le cinéma queer francophone

From Baudelaire to Genet, a great number of Caucasian Europeans have been attracted to the ideal the Arab man presented to them, whether it be because of his exotic nature, or because the masculine ideal associated with the Arab man was an impetus of objectification. This objectification can also be found in the pornographic industry. Jean-Daniel Cadinot is a porn director famous for producing a great number of movies glorifying as well as objectifying Maghrebian men, making them the object of the desire of young Caucasians.

Theorizing Reading and Activism in Environmental Literature 

This seminar will explore how theories of reading and reception—important to recent work in critical race studies, cognitive narratology, and new formalism—can inform ecocriticism. Building on the large body of scholarship attending to problems of reading, reception, race, and ethnicity, the seminar in particular invites papers on literatures of environmental justice or postcolonial environmentalism.

Monster Man: The effect of Romantic masculinities in Frankenstein

This paper expounds on masculine tropes in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in an attempt to identify a root cause for the various oppressions at work in the novel--the oppression of women, indigenous people, and animals. In analyzing these oppressions, readers can see that they begin and are perpetuated by the novel's masculine figures, namely Victor Frankenstein. I also argue that Mary Shelley was aware of the intersectional politics she wrote into her novel, as much of her political life has been erased by the dominant, mascuine literary tradition. Thus, this analysis of Romantic masculinity is not limited to its fictional representation, but also extends to its historical real-life counterparts.
