{UPDATE]--(Re)Constructing the American West--SAMLA 2010

Monday, May 10, 2010 - 12:47pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

In his essay "Walking," Henry David Thoreau says, "We go eastward to realize history and study the works of art and literature, retracing the steps of the race; we go westward as into the future, with a spirit of enterprise and adventure." Similarly, in All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren's protagonist remarks on a trip westward, "For West is where we all plan to go some day." Yet, Warren's west is starkly different from Thoreau's. The myth of the American West has provided a geographical space for philosophers, writers, artists, and filmmakers to interrogate, personal as well as cultural, ambivalence towards the promises of Manifest Destiny, the American Dream, capitalism, individualism, diversity, and community.

This panel seeks to analyze these cultural productions from a specifically Marxist and/or psychoanalytic perspective. That is, panelists may do a Marxist or psychoanalytic reading of a particular book, movie, etc., or they may do a Marxist and/or psychoanalytic explanation about the industry of 9/11 culture in general.

From the devastation of the Athenian polis during the Peloponnesian war to the decline of the Greek world in the era of the Stoics, from the enclosures of the commons under the Tudors to the religious wars of the reformation and counter-reformation, and from the decline of the ancien régime to the upheavals of revolution and class struggle in the 19th century, "Utopia" is a name that has always been linked to crisis: as a reformist or revolutionary response to antagonisms and contradictions in the social, political and economic order, as a means of contemplating and urging a world to come during a period of transition and uncertainty.

[UPDATE] Violent Masculinities: Early Modern Texts and Modern Images (SAMLA Nov. 2010; New Abstract Deadline = May 21)

Tuesday, May 4, 2010 - 10:43am
Catherine Thomas/College of Charleston

From Lavinia's rape and dismemberment in Titus Andronicus to the
decimation of villains in The Faerie Queene, early modern texts are rife with acts of spectacular violence in part because of the central role they play in constituting and contesting early modern masculinity. Similarly, modern popular culture has proliferated and valorized images of violent masculinity, both in adaptations of early modern works (e.g. Hamlet and The Revenger's Tragedy) and in later models of heroism (e.g. the Terminator films, superhero comics). This panel welcomes papers considering historical, theoretical, literary and/or aesthetic
aspects of violent masculinity, then and now. How do displays of
