With the erosion of totalitarian regimes in Africa and the intense development of popular protest, women have always found ways to cope with the national disenchantment that has eternally attempted to exploit them as a means to preserve the nation’s homogeneity. Thus, the relationship between women and the nation remains rather complex: on the one hand, they are members of communities, institutions and groups that secure the nation’s political agenda, on the other hand, they are still looked at as social categories holding specific roles in the nation, namely that of reproduction.

Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

Call for Submissions - Eborakon Issue 4

updated: 
Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 10:39am
Eborakon Poetry Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 2, 2017

Eborakon is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning “place of the yews”. We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.
