Extending Gesture
A Colloquium at University of Edinburgh 26th – 28th October 2012

'If I write, this strange hand has already
slipped into my writing hand',
(Jean-Luc Nancy).

My hand moves out ahead of me in writing – as Jacques Derrida has conceived it, it is both blind and anticipatory, giving itself over to both in order to touch upon the unknown. Yet in doing so, the unknown touches all along this act; this embodied gesture quivers with unknowability.

The construction and historicization of the Amazonian type women warriors have generated a long legacy in both Western and Eastern cultures. Either as grotesque feminine other without breasts (such as depicted by Herodotus, Hippocratic Treatises, and Apollodorus) or as heroic women paragons to be emulated (such as China's most famous Mulan), these women warriors were mirrors of the patriarchal societies that constructed them.The ancient world's literary impulse to construct these women warriors and women's kingdoms continued in the Middle Ages. Examples can be found in the writings of Boccaccio, Chaucer, De Pizan, and travel writings of Mandeville and Marco Polo. In the East, "women's kingdom" continued to evolve in Chinese literature and historiography.

"We have no being beyond our stories. Our stories explain us, justify us, sustain us, humble us, and forgive us." Malea Powell, CCCC 2012 Chair's Address

We all have C's (Conference on College Composition and Communication) stories. Some are profound, some are quirky, some are sad, some are unsettling, some are insightful, some are scandalous, and some are just plain hilarious. We've told them over beers, in cars over miles, and within faculty lounges. Our field is based on these stories. We think it's time for the field to hear your story.
