For SSAWW's forthcoming 2015 conference on "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," we are assembling a panel focused on contested boundaries of race, class, and sexuality in women's nineteenth- and twentieth-century regional literature. Current papers for the session focus on contested gender roles in the work of New England authors Sarah Orne Jewett and Mary Wilkins Freeman, depictions of contested racial and regional identities in the work of antebellum antislavery novelist Mattie Griffith, and representations of the rural in the late twentieth century queer press.

In the history of ideas, psychoanalysis has often been understood as a Victorian, European discourse that, like other modern knowledge projects, expanded along an imperial trajectory, exporting its universalizing theory of the subject to South Asia, Australia, North Africa, and throughout the Americas. At the same time, however, the transnational diffusion of psychoanalysis has historically been driven by political strife and exile from European fascism, Soviet socialism, North African colonialism, and South American dictatorship.

This seminar considers the role of sound and performance in poetry of the Americas across a range of periods and movements.
