Virgin Envy: Contemporary Approaches to Virginity in Literature and Arts

updated: 
Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 10:08am
Canadian Comparative Literature Association/Canadian Association of Hispanists, New Brunswick, Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences

Virginity has long been a trope found in literary and cultural texts, however, how do we understand virginity and why does it matter become two questions worthy of consideration. This joint-panel between the Canadian Comparative Literature Association and the Canadian Association of Hispanists aims to work through the poetics and politics of virginity in narrative, poetry, cinema, graphic novels, and popular culture. In many regards, though virginity has been studied, particularly in Medieval Literature, and aspects of Renaissance and Classical Literature, we have yet to see much consideration of virginity as a theoretical problem in modern texts.
