Tentative Title- Rape and the Black Experience: A Literary Response

Concept Note

As per most of the definitions, rape is defined as non-consensual penetration of either the vagina or the anus. However, it is not merely physical, though it is rooted in biology, but its impacts are psychological in nature. Its consequences are experienced not only by the victim but by the victimizer as well. In almost all the cultures, rape is deployed as a weapon of domination by patriarchy. The penultimate threat for a woman, as it has been observed since centuries, is the fear of being raped. Through rape, patriarchy has often exercised absolute hegemony.

Cornell EGSO 2020 Conference: ProximityMarch 6th - 7th, 2020Call for Proposals:

As knowledge travels through time and space, proximity emerges as an increasingly important category for critical inquiry. How does our understanding of proximity change our intellectual landscape? What issues seem distant from us? Which objects, texts, or historical moments feel more proximate in the present? How does the idea of proximity shape our understanding of political, economic, ecological, and social issues? Whether addressing the position of the humanities with regard to geopolitical conflicts or the ways in which history becomes entangled with the present, matters of closeness and distance must be considered urgent intellectual problems.
