Unsettling Sexuality: Eighteenth-Century Queer Horizons

updated:

Jeremy Chow (Bucknell) & Shelby Johnson (FAU)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 1, 2021

Unsettling Sexuality: Eighteenth-Century Queer Horizons invites proposals for chapters that trace, explore, and imagine new interdisciplinary horizons in eighteenth-century queer studies. This collection of essays primarily seeks to revisit archives of gender, sex, and sexuality in order to visualize the ruptures and fissures of previous queer studies scholarship and trends that are just emerging--some of which are described below. We are especially interested in essays that imagine other queer worlds, outside of a British or continental home, to better flesh out global explorations and conceptions of queerness that are not beholden to colonial parameters and definitions.

After the Pandemic: The State of English

Pedagogy 23.3

How has COVID-19 affected the already vastly altered landscape of post-secondary English studies, for good and/or for ill? After all, recent years have brought important, ever-growing attention to a range of inequities, even as the public continues to question the value of higher education and the humanities. COVID-19 has only magnified the terrain of higher education, which has been shifting economically, pedagogically, and technologically. Pedagogy invites both commentary and narrative pieces of no more than 15 pages addressing this broad question, from whatever part of the discipline you find yourself.

The special issue of  Writing and Pedagogy intends to discuss ways that departments, instructor cohorts, and individual instructors  are bridging the gap through new approaches to syllabus design, discussion facilitation, digital feedback, incorporation of digital, social media spaces, and teaching innovations.

Contemporary depictions of the long eighteenth century – whether drawn from historic sources or responding imaginatively to the era’s multifarious legacies – regularly captivate TV, film and theatre audiences and gamers alike. Increasingly, scholarly biographies provide the basis for big budget biopics, eighteenth-century narratives are adapted in new and experimental ways, objects from museum collections are replicated in cultures of fandom, and academics are invited onto sets as consultants.

Naseeruddin Shah, the actor, once claimed that “The roots may look lost but every big story in the Hindi film industry is from Shakespeare.” It might not be as simple as that but what Shah was pointing out was to the fact that there are many references to Shakespeare’s plays in Hindi film. Not just Hindi but Indian cinema reveals an adaptation and appropriation of the Bard of Avon. There are themes and devices so commonly found in Shakespeare’s plays in Indian films, such as twins separated at birth, cross dressing characters, star-crossed lovers, characters falling in love with messengers, the wise fool, the tamed Shrew and the mousetrap device.

Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant. 

 

Central questions include:

  • What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?

  • What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?
