Essay Collection: Representations of Beauty and Violence

updated:

We are seeking essays that theorize the relationship between and inter-implication of beauty and violence in literature, film and art. While inquiring into the discursive constructions and multi-layered cultural re-enactments of the "violence mythos" (Whitmer), we are interested in the mechanisms of conversion whereby the seductive powers of aestheticized violence allow a reader/viewer to move past a "front-line vocabulary of cruelty" (Ackley) and become captivated by the beauty of such representations. How, in other words, do aesthetics intersect with violence?

Questions we would like the contributors to consider include, but are not limited to, the following:

Teaching American Ethnic Literatures

American ethnic authors are literary conjurers of memory and imagination, creating each character full of spirit and consequence, joy and irreversible pains. These authors interpret and provoke self-legitimization of the varied realms of ethnic experience and memory in American society. American ethnic literatures present an ongoing dialogue between ethnic individual and mainstream culture, history, class, religion and sexuality. All of these issues are at play for teachers attempting to establish ethnically inclusive literary curriculums. Teaching American ethnic literatures requires that instructors decide and develop a philosophical stance and pedagogical framework for their classrooms.

Memory matters. It is crucial to some of the fields of scholarly inquiry that have been most prominent in recent years: the study of nationalism, questions of ethnic identity and the politics of recognition, in which groups are given recognition not least for the past experience of exclusion and suffering. Moreover, there have been numerous studies of cultural memory as expressed in monuments, memorials, works of art, and school textbooks.
