Keynote speech by Jasbir Puar

Master class by Marlon Ross

Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?

This Rough Magic / www.thisroughmagic.org

This Rough Magic (www.thisroughmagic.org) is a journal dedicated to the art of teaching Medieval and Renaissance Literature.

All too often, the same canonical works and authors find their way into Medieval and Renaissance Literature courses.
