Transgressions

Steen Christiansen
contact email: 

As the boundaries between cultures and cultural practices become increasingly more permeable, the need to study, explain and analyze such phenomena only becomes greater. Transgressions and transgressive practices have often been at the forefront of seeking out and pointing to the presence of boundaries, whether we look at aesthetic practices, social conventions or national borders.

On the one hand, then, transgressions move beyond boundaries and easy categorization, usually in order to disrupt cultural order or question cultural, social or national divisions. Conceptual blurring is thus a key aspect of transgression.

"Subversive Texts/ Radical Readings" graduate student conference May 6-7th, 2011, proposals due March 13th

If every text is a product of an established tradition, written in a preexisting language, how does a text become subversive? Does subversion lie in the speaker's voice and his or her intent? Does it depend directly on that, which it means to undermine? Is subversion created in the interaction between different cultures, and if so, in a globalized society are all texts, by definition, subversive? Is it tied directly to the language that is being used, making literature written in dialect inherently subversive, while rendering texts written "in the language of the oppressor" less likely to undermine the dominant ideology? Or does it take a reading – radical in either its extreme or fundamental perspective – to make a text (any text) subversive?
