Borders and Boundaries in Popular French Caribbean Culture
This panel welcomes papers focused on illustrations of borders and boundaries in popular culture in French Caribbean women’s writing or film. Papers may be in English or French and may not exceed 20 minutes. Please send 250-word abstracts and any A/V requests to Lisa Connell (email@example.com) by June 1, 2017.
This panel considers examples of French and francophone literatures, films, and other art forms, in which contemporary women articulate and/or embody nonconformist physicality which challenges social order. How do women speak against or otherwise resist socially defined borders and boundaries of normative corporeality? Presentations may address both thematic and formal examples of textual disruption that is enabled by bodies which run counter to socially constructed ideals related to women, gender, and race. Possible thematic avenues of inquiry include but are not limited to: pregnancy, aging, disability, beauty, and illness.
