D’un point de vue psychanalytique, du moins francophone, la notion de resilience connait des destins contrastés entre son succès médiatique d’une part et les précautions prises par les universitaires pour son usage, d’autre part. Elle peut prêter à interprétations tant le spectre d’acceptions de cette notion est large. En effet, resilience peut tout aussi bien référer à l’idéalisation du rebond narcissique à contre-coup, à l’exaltation de la cicatrice mémorielle, comme aux effets psychiques après-coup du travail - passif - du deuil.

Queer and There: Representation of Queerness in American Children’s Television Series

 

The Owl House, Andi Mack, Bubble Guppies, SpongeBob SquarePants and more! American children’s television shows are starting to provide representation of queer characters in a variety of roles. With this uptick in representation, we then must ask ourselves: what type of representation is being produced?

Les rapports sociaux ont souvent été définis par des rapports de domination qui instaurent une hiérarchie entre les femmes et les hommes avec un pouvoir d’autorité accordé à ces derniers. Cette domination masculine se reflète, au sein de la société, à travers la répartition des rôles entre les deux sexes, la présence dans l'espace public et les prérogatives accordées aux hommes.

Mixed, Multi-, and Bi-racial Identities: Sites of Resilience and Resistance

updated: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 10:34am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 2023 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

The mixed race, multi-racial, bi-racial, mulatto, or hapa figure is already one of crossing boundaries and as such transgressive, provocative, resilient in the face of anti-miscegenation and homogeneity. It speaks to embodiment and yet, as Claudine Chiawei O’Hearn notes in Half + Half: Writers on Growing Up Biracial + Bicultural, “skin color and place of birth are not accurate signifiers of identity” (xiv). This panel seeks papers that investigate this figure in fiction as a multifaceted site of social interrogation, intersectionality, and personal identity. Topics could include, but are not limited to:

Mixed racial identities, multiculturalism

Colorism

Passing or dominant culture adjacency

Horror, Capitalism, and the Cinematic Representation of Class Structure (NeMLA 2023 Seminar)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 10:08am
Northeast Modern Languages Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Following generative discussions unveiling the potentiality of reading the horror genre through the lens of class analysis, this seminar invites contributions that highlight the role of racial and heteropatriarchal capitalism in cinematic horror narratives. Together with seminar participants, we are interested in adding a novel line of inquiry, which perhaps has not been thoroughly explored, to the rich theoretical scholarship that has grown around the horror genre. Echoing Mark Steven (2017), we will ask: How are contemporary horror movies responding, absorbing, or resisting the dynamics of capitalism beyond a liberal understanding of identity politics?

Roundtable on "Conflicted Feelings, Resilient Responses: Rewriting Marginalization in the Gothic"

updated:

NeMLA: Northeast Modern Languages Association Annual Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Victor LaValle dedicated his 2016 horror novella The Ballad of Black Tom, a work that reimagines a racially-charged Lovecraftian universe by centering it around the Black experience, “To H.P. Lovecraft, with all my conflicted feelings”. LaValle’s ambiguous feelings as both a reader and author are shared by many students of the Gothic as they adjust recognizable and occasionally exclusive generic boundaries to better encompass varied, eclectic, and sometimes invisible or problematically visible identities.
