 Time, Space, and Epistemic Violence in Hemispheric American Literature

This panel seeks papers that explore the depiction of time and space in hemispheric American Literature and the ways in which traditional conceptualizations may be read as a form of epistemic violence. How do the depictions of physical spaces in works from the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States interact with complex configurations of time as progressive, circular, or even anti-linear and irregular—narrative time as composed of a randomized trail of apexes and abysses? How does this literature address/redress/move beyond the concepts of time and space and the harm caused by the imposition of Western paradigms?

For Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
