With the advent of capitalism, always gendered and racialised, as a mode of production, profound changes have taken place in the ways in which various societies, human relations and ecosystems have evolved (Moore, 2016, Kaplan 2009). Technological development has always been integral to the directions and configurations of capitalism, as it has evolved over the last three centuries. Further, the globalisation of capitalism, with the imperialist phase of European expansionism, followed by US-American expansionism as well as later, in the emergence of Chinese state capitalism, has brought technology to the front and centre of social, economic and political relations at every level (Lewis, 2022).

Student Engagement with Theory in the Undergraduate and Dual Enrollment Classroom

Teaching literary analysis invariably includes learning activities involving reading, deciphering, and applying theory to a text understudy. For many undergraduate and dual- or cross-enrolled students, this activity is no small feat. Rather than tossing critical theory to the wayside as "too tough," we persevere! This session seeks presentations from educators who have had varying degrees of success bringing critical theory into their humanities courses. In order to render accessible to students the complex and insightful ideas sandwiched within the academic jargon of critical theory, how are we translating the rigor into palpable bites?

Inviting Presences: Intratextual Subjectivities in Early Modern Women’s Writing

Surveying the absence on her shelf where Elizabethan women’s writing ought to be, Virginia Woolf (in)famously dismissed the possibility of Shakespeare’s sister ever finding “a room of her own” to develop her voice. Recent decades of literary scholarship have shown the invention with which early modern women built out their own textual “rooms,” finding voice in surprising places and forms (even in silence, as Christina Luckyj heard [2002]), in visions of new political subjectivities (in a radically equal imaginary, as seen by Mihiko Suzuki [2003]), and through networks of overlooked community (in coteries and in letters, as traced by James Daybell [2006]).

TRANSMEDIA VILLAINS AND CREATURES

 

This new series by Lexington Books aims to cover the fascinating subject of villains and threatening creatures through an interdisciplinary perspective represented by fields as different as literary, film, religious, gender and art studies as much as philosophy and sociological and ecocritical approaches. Each volume will focus on a single figure (or group of figures) and examine it in its multiple incarnations, from their origins in myth, folklore and history as well as in a literary text, to their various adaptations in different media, including comics, graphic novels, cinema, TV, exhibitions, the visual arts, merchandise, fandom and tourist attractions.

Our panel organizers believe in a capacious understanding of post-1945 American Literature. The category of “literature” includes imaginative works (fiction, poetry, drama) but also essays, memoirs, or creative nonfiction. Texts that are written by American-identifying authors or texts about America or American life are welcome.

In accordance with the conference theme, “Translation in Action,” the work of French philosopher Henri Bergson is more than relevant. Bergson’s work was written in French and translations are often offered with notes about the richness of his words and potential loss of meaning. Questions of translation surround and even permeate Bergson philosophy.
