[UPDATE] LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory Special Issue "Writers and the Business of Writing" DEADLINE 11/16/09

Monday, November 2, 2009 - 1:32pm
LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory publishes critical essays which interpret texts from an engaging, coherent theoretical perspective and which provide original, close readings of texts.

We do not restrict the journal's scope to specific periods, genres, or critical paradigms. Submissions must use MLA citation style. Please send essays in triplicate (if outside the US or Canada, one copy will do), along with a 100 word abstract, to Regina Barreca, Editor, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory, University of Connecticut, Department of English, 215 Glenbrook Rd., Unit 4025, Storrs, CT 06269-4025, USA.

Framing the Human: (De)humanization in Language Literature and Culture - March 6, 2010

updated: 
Monday, November 2, 2009 - 1:29pm
University Of Minnesota, Twin Cities Association of Graduate Students in Romance Studies

Debates around how "the human" is defined, interrogated and regulated often delineate boundaries that separate the human and its others (e.g. the animal, the divine, the monstrous). Far from being abstract exercises in taxonomy, assessments of these boundaries impose ways of knowing, reading and seeing. Political, ideological, scientific, religious and economic regimes participate in framing the human. Determining who or what counts as human under these regimes has profound consequences. For example, one can be biologically but not politically human (e.g. undocumented workers). One's political "human-ness" can be stripped away or called into question after certain violations of the law (e.g. enemy combatants).
