Death, Desire, Fury, and Delirium: Feminism in the Worlds of Neil Gaiman

Edited by Tara Prescott and Aaron Drucker

Broadly lauded as a landmark writer in comics and fantasy fiction for his depiction of powerful and independent female characters, Neil Gaiman's uses of feminist tropes and ideologies deserves further exploration. This collection, due to be published in early 2012, looks carefully at the broad spectrum of Gaiman's work and how he interacts with "feminism" through his oeuvre.

Throughout history, the notion of 'party' has served as a site for exploring prevailing liminalities: from ideological display to decorous intimacies to social multitudes, the party has served as a means of further repressing or extolling self within private and public domains, projecting identity formations of the other, or combating the enigmatic reflections of the public world. The dialectic of inclusion and exclusion—who is invited into a space, a sphere, an identity—has been used as a social tool and political wedge while at once advancing the bounds of restraint within prescribed modes of behaviour.

More than fifty years after the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the attainment of universal human rights remains elusive. The persistence of repressive and discriminatory national policies, cultural practices, wars, genocide, ethnic cleansing, terrorism, rape, and other forms of violence threaten the maintenance of human rights.

Tuesday, February 8, 2011 - 12:08pm
Modern Horizons Journal

For the April 2011 edition of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various intellectual, artistic, emotional, and political manifestations of kitsch in our time.

In our current culture, the word 'kitsch' has come to be associated often with tacky souvenirs and cheap trinkets. However, there is a thicker sense given to the word by various thinkers and authors in the twentieth century, even if it is regularly connected with an idea of culture.
