What does the success of AI-generated textuality ask us to reconsider, revisit, or reinvent in the context of literary theory and the digital humanities more generally?

Catherine Bush’s 2019 novel Blaze Island opens with the following epigraph from Elena Ferrante: “Pressing changes are underway. Everything is becoming something else, unpredictably. A completely new outlook is required. The challenge now and for the foreseeable future is to extract ourselves from what men have engineered, a planet long on the edge of catastrophe.” Throughout the novel, Bush underscores the importance of thinking critically about boundaries, specifically those of gender and geography, as she reworks Shakespeare’s The Tempest to particularly Atlantic Canadian purposes.

updated: 
Wednesday, February 22, 2023 - 11:14am
Sarah Orsak
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Amidst a growing insistence on disability futures, this panel centers the future of feminist disability scholarship. Taking up the conference sub-theme of Revisiting, Reclaiming & Re-imagining, panelists propose new directions for feminist disability thought not by looking forward, but through a transformative turn to alternative pasts. Recent critical disability scholarship reimagines the field’s scholarly origins and objects, including Sami Schalk and Jina B. Kim’s call for feminist-of-color disability studies and the Crip Genealogies edited volume. This panel foregrounds this twinned intervention in field-narration and analytic objects--insisting that both are necessary for transformative feminist disability thought.
