Expanding Perspectives on Hoccleve and Gender

A Session of Papers at the 2025 International Congress of Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, sponsored by the International Hoccleve Society

In his notoriously laddish introduction to The Minor Poems,Frederick Furnivall wishes that Thomas Hoccleve had been “a manlier fellow.” Furnivall’s judgment reflects straitened Victorian gender norms that have little to do with medieval reality. But Hoccleve’s relationship to masculinity, femininity, and the gender politics of his own era remains an open question in criticism.

In an age marked with conflict and strife, humanity is still searching for solutions to oppression and marginalization. In order to better understand the factors leading to these problems, Kimberlé Crenshaw first introduced the term “intersectionality” in 1989 to explain how a person’s intersecting identities such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability, nationality and religion affect their access to opportunities and privileges. In literary and linguistic studies, intersectionality is used as a framework of analysis that helps scholars examine how these factors fuel various issues, ranging from health inequity to climate change and how they are expressed, negotiated and at times resolved through texts.

FASHION’S FIBRES AS PLANETARY FLOWSFashion Highlight journal, call for papers- issue 4

Guest Editors: Alice Payne and Anneke Smelik

Fibre, the basis of fashion’s materiality, is experiencing rising demand year on year, reflecting the insatiable desire for ‘more’ that defines the dominant fashion system. With an annual consumption of 116 million tonnes in 2022, close to a doubling in 20 years (Textile Exchange 2023), humanity’s appetite for fibre has never been more voracious.

Speculating Exile: Literary Estrangements and Fugitive Belongings

Exile is “the signature and permanent mark of the modern age,” M. Nourbese Philip wrote in 1992: “we cutting we teeth on exile— exile in the very air we breathing.” In this waning quarter of the 21st century, more than 281 million or 3.6% of the global population are migrants, a number that, by all accounts, will only rise. Displacement, whether due to economic instabilities, climate change, war, political oppression, or just the “maddest Joy” of desire, alters not only those it subjectifies, but the conditions of belonging that inform their trajectories.

After the encouraging success of last year’s panel, we want to continue our discussion on “bad art.” Scholarship on the politics of literature has, in recent decades, increasingly come to focus on whether texts from the past conform to the values of the present. Some texts are praised for modeling, even anticipating, our own progressive values, while others are subject to critique for the way they ignore, license, or justify forms of inequity, injustice, and subordination. This disciplinary impulse has come to seem not only justified, but natural. Yet it has also resulted in a growing corpus of books being dismissed or maligned within the academy (books that are often, and importantly, still being read and revered outside the academy).

Our proposed collection, Unsettling the Lyric, invites interdisciplinary perspectives on the possibilities, as well as the problems, of the lyric as an essential site for reexamining the histories of Indigenous-settler relations and how we express them in the present. As Daniel Heath Justice (Cherokee) argues, “poetry is a particularly compelling literary form for confronting the ruptures of history and the fragmenting effects of settler colonialism.” And the lyric especially  remains as ubiquitous as it is contested.

Asian Influences in/on American Poetry

What effect has Asian thought or culture had in/on American poetry? How has it diversified or failed to diversify that poetry or its epistemology? This panel seeks papers on connections between American poetry/poetics and Asian culture, philosophy, and/or religion.  Any connection is welcome including how poets have (mis)used Asian culture and/or thought in their poetry and thinking about poetry.  However, in keeping with the Northeast Modern Language Association’s (NeMLA's) theme of “(R)EVOLUTION,” I am particularly interested in affinities between ways of knowing in Asian thought and American poetry and how such affinities may disrupt traditional Western epistemologies or cause American and European readers to rethink their connection to the world.

updated: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024 - 10:59am
MultiPlay Network UK
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 31, 2024

This volume will explore the outsized influence of community discourses on how games are experienced. Cultures and discourses surrounding games significantly impact player experiences. Salen and Zimmerman (2004) describe open cultural contexts where "the exchange of meaning between a game and its surrounding cultural context can change and transform both the game and its environment”. Consalvo (2007) discusses how videogame paratexts, including guides and wikis, serve crucial functions in understanding approaches to gameplay. Similarly, Mukherjee (2015) views games as multifaceted “assemblages” that are deeply informed by surrounding cultures and communities.

When Zac Efron was cast as Ted Bundy in Netflix’s 2019 production, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, this decision received a mixed reception. Some argued that Efron was too much of a ‘queasily parodic hottie’ for the role (Bradshaw 2019). Meanwhile, there was a counter argument to state that Efron’s starring role was in fact clever mimicry of Bundy’s alleged sex appeal and charisma, two defining qualities that enabled him to become such a prolific violent offender. Significantly though, Efron is far from the only conventionally attractive and high-profile actor to be cast in the role of a violent criminal.
