ACLA Seminar: Worlding Sexual Difference (March 22-25, 2016)

Worlding and sexual difference are generative forces that imply a process of appearance and concealment. For Martin Heidegger, worlding is the process by which something becomes unconcealed through its passing from earth to world. This aesthetic and phenomenological passing is constituted by strife. For Luce Irigaray, sexual difference is that which remains concealed through patriarchy. For psychoanalysis, sexual difference responds to the specular logic of sameness and is produced by the resolution of the castration complex. Elizabeth Grosz, on the other hand, understands sexual difference as irreducible to all humans insofar as human reproduction is only possible through the encounter of two gametes.

ACLA panel

In Speech Genres and Other Late Essays, Mikhail Bakhtin insists on the "sharp and categorical boundary line between the actual world of representation and the world represented in the work of art." Yet in no genre is this line more regularly blurred than the many forms that can be loosely grouped together under the label of autobiography. While all literary texts contain within them some ideological engagement with reality, the particular tensions that define many of the urban centers of the Global South often move this relationship to the forefront of the narrative.

Session details

I am organising a session around the broad topic of 'The Medieval Imaginative Landscape', which is seeking collaborators working in any area which touches on medieval discourses about the strange or the supernatural. I would like to encourage a holistic approach to this topic, thus papers could draw upon a wide range of sources including, but not limited to: altarpieces, tapestries, tombs, archaeological finds, sagas, romances, chronicles, exempla, saints' lives etc. Participants might approach the sources from a variety of perspectives including cultural history, art history, literary analysis etc.

Feminist Pedagogy in the Two-Year College

How do two-year college instructors put feminist theory into pedagogical practice? This roundtable discusses forms of feminist pedagogy in the community college classroom. Participants are invited to share methods and ideas of pedagogy for teaching in women and gender studies and/or feminist approaches to learning and classroom strategies across the disciplines. Papers should aim to address gender and sexuality issues, along with race and class, within and outside the rapidly transforming academic space of the two-year college.
