NeMLA Seminar: Identity, Politics, and Universals in Literary Theory and Beyond (30/9/2014: 30-3/4-5/2015)

Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 4:39pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

In recent years, the position that argues that human actions are guided by certain Universals (biological, cognitive, emotive, and moral) that are common to all humanity has been contested. Literary traditions such as poststructuralist thought represented by the views of thinkers like Michael Foucault have seen human identity exclusively as a product of class struggle. However, alternate views represented by Martha Nussbaum and several others have challenged this by claiming that human identity is guided by certain non-coercive universals that determine how human beings identify and respond to society.

Gender and Work: Exploring Intersectionality, Resistance and Identity

Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 1:26pm
University of South Dakota

Organizers seek proposals for individual papers or panels on topics related to gendered work environments (whether formal or informal) and all the nuanced meanings of "work" in the context of feminism and gender equality. The April 9-10, 2015, conference seeks to explore several questions:

• The work of feminism: What are the main tasks still facing feminism? How do various feminist groups construct their identities through the lens of "work to be done"? How does feminism's work intersect with the goals of other social movements, such as sustainability and eco-feminism?

• Gendered meanings of work: What is women's work? What is men's work? What is a work of art? What is a work of heart?

William Shakespeare: A Victorian Hero-Poet

Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 12:57pm
Dr. Esmail Zare-Behtash

This paper intends to show Shakespeare in a Victorian context as the forefront of literary activities. It will try to show what Shakespeare meant to the Victorians at a time when all the traditional institutions were challenged from every corner. The Victorian audiences respected Shakespeare, reclaiming him as the nation's Bard. This reverence of Shakespeare has since been named Victorian 'Bardolatry'. Victorians, trained by novel reading, welcomed Shakespeare as a write of characters and appreciated his insights into the mind of his characters.
