Contemporaneity and the Global South

Friday, September 2, 2016 - 2:26pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

For the last two decades, critical approaches to literature of the global south have taken for granted the importance of history in shaping the present. The ongoing consequences of colonialism, nationalism, partitions, civil wars and other forms of actual and epistemic violence have been taken as key optics for understanding the crises and possibilities of the present. On the other hand, in many cases the discourse of futurity has been usurped by the proponents of neoliberalism who imagine that capitalism will release the formerly colonized countries from history’s handcuffs and pave the way toward a bold new future.

From Baudelaire to Genet, a great number of Caucasian Europeans have been attracted to the ideal the Arab man presented to them, whether it be because of his exotic nature, or because the masculine ideal associated with the Arab man was an impetus of objectification. This objectification can also be found in the pornographic industry. Jean-Daniel Cadinot is a porn director famous for producing a great number of movies glorifying as well as objectifying Maghrebian men, making them the object of the desire of young Caucasians.
