Since Richard von Krafft-Ebing's first clinical naming of "masochism" as a perversion located in men in 1890, masochisms and masochists have been approached through a variety of lenses: scientific, sexological, artistic, literary, psychiatric, and dramatic. Importantly, the most prolific period regarding the circulation of ideas and theories about masochism is the same period that produced the modernist text.

In his Apology for Poetry, Sir Philip Sidney defines poetry as "an art of imitation", a form of "mimesis"; he describes it as not only a "representing, counterfeiting, or figuring forth" but more importantly as a "speaking picture." This attribution of aural and visual elements to the poet's pen delineates poetry as a medium able to integrate seemingly disparate elements: a site of necessary hybridity. As a "speaking picture", poetry mirrors the visual arts by imagistically portraying the verba (signifier) or form which conveys, transmutes, or mimics the res (signified) or Platonic Idea. The visual arts, which mirror or embody the spoken word, serve to access this elusive signified.

This panel seeks to examine the roles of multilingualisms, accents, dialects, and inflections within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.
