Bodies that Sell: Commodification and Cultural Marketplaces

University of Massachusetts-Amherst (English Graduate Organization)

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

What Lies Beneath the Clothes of Culture? Cannibalism in Fiction

From ancient Greek myths to 21st century post-apocalyptic novels, cannibalism abounds, forcing us to reconsider easy binaries of self and other or civilized "us" and a savage "them." As Maggie Kilgour argues in From Communion to Cannibalism, incorporation—the most basic example of which is eating—"depends upon and enforces an absolute division between inside and outside; but in the act itself that opposition disappears, dissolving the structure it appears to produce" (4). What, then, when the food being eaten is human flesh?

After Extinction

Center for 21st Century Studies

A conference at the Center for 21st Century Studies (C21), UW-Milwaukee
April 30-May 2, 2015

What comes after extinction? Our predominant understanding of extinction today relates to natural species extinctions caused largely by human actions. But in the twenty-first century categorical distinctions between humans and nonhumans or culture and nature are no longer tenable—if they ever really were. Indeed as Darwin was not even the first to note, mass extinction events preceded the appearance of humans on the planet.
