In 2017 historian Per Faxneld published the landmark study Satanic Feminism: Lucifer as the Liberator of Woman in Nineteenth-Century Culture. The book argues for the existence of a nineteenth-century counter-reading of Satan that constructed the Devil as a symbol of women's liberation, progressive values, and intellectual freedom. For nineteenth- and early twentieth-century suffragists, artists, and radical thinkers, Satan served as an empowering model of self-determination and nonconformity.

Psychoanalysis and Fashion

To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.

A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture. 

The Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series is looking for original and interdisciplinary monographs or edited volumes, which expand our understanding of popular culture as reflecting world challenges, contexts, and situations. The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.

The editor of the series welcomes proposals for projects on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):

"There Will Be Poems": Depictions of Masculinity and Care in Modern Media

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:42pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

The title for this session is taken from the AMC series The Terror, in which an older man is heartbroken as he stands by the bed of his dying captain. “It was an honor serving you, sir. You are a good man. There will be poems,” he assures him (The Terror Episode 9). His grief and his care are portrayed sincerely and not as an indication of a lack of masculinity or courage. His desire to create poems for a beloved dying man is not pathologized and instead represents a strength of character. This year, NEMLA asks us to consider the theme of care, and our vulnerabilities and interdependence on each other.

Eating Feeling: Food, Affect, and “Other” Communities in Medieval Literature (ICMS 2022 Kalamazoo; online)

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Medieval archives abound with accounts of food-related practices and encounters, with acute attention paid to the food habits of “others” (neighbors, foreigners, pagans) and the impact of communal eating in various social spaces. This session explores the rich intersections of food, affect, and communal identity in the medieval period. We especially welcome contributions that engage with affective responses to the food cultures of “others,” paralleled in the COVID-19 era by the Western world’s alarm at “exotic” foodstuffs, or contributions that focus on sociocultural practices (such as eating together or sharing dishes) long taken for granted but recently destabilized due to the effects of the pandemic.
