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

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2015 - 11:40am
ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association

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.

[UPDATE] Special Topic: Faith and Violence in Literature (Spring 2016)

Julie Ooms / Intégrité: A Journal of Faith and Learning (Missouri Baptist University)

Intégrité (pronounced IN tay gri tay) is a scholarly journal published twice a year by the Faith & Learning Committee and the Humanities Division of Missouri Baptist University, St. Louis, MO. Published both online (http://www.mobap.edu/integrite) and in print copy, it welcomes essays for a special issue (Spring 2016) on "Faith and Violence in Literature."

Essays may explore the interaction between Christian faith and violence in individual works or writers, in issues concerning teaching such works and writers, and in the pedagogical tasks educators at faith-based institutions of higher learning face when discussing and reflecting on the use of violence.
