Literary texts affect us emotionally. They can negotiate the ambiguities and complexities of emotions in a highly nuanced way and help readers to develop their "emotional literacy," that is the ability to read, understand and cope with one’s own emotions and those of others. Through modulations of narrative voice and focalization, literature can, for example, generate empathy or insight by allowing readers to reflect upon the emotional impasses, contradictions and precarities faced by marginalized or "othered" individuals or groups (e.g. recent media representations challenging the trope of the presumed "lack of empathy" of individuals on the Autism spectrum) and the cultural variability, historicity and social constructedness of emotions (e.g.

In the opening of When Women Kill: Four Crimes Retold (2022), Alia Trabucco Zerán meditates on the still-prevalent taboo surrounding violence committed by women: “A woman who kills … is twice outside the law: outside both the codified laws and the cultural laws that define and regulate femininity.” In identifying violent women’s twofold transgressiveness, Trabucco Zerán also articulates a desire to justify her own interest in writing about violent women, framing the book as a feminist project through which women’s rage, disobedience, and brutality are recovered and reconsidered to broaden conceptualisations of womanhood.

‘A word after a word after a word is power’: The Hulu Adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (2017-2024): A one-day multidisciplinary symposium.

We are inviting proposals for 20-minute conference papers on the Hulu Adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s famous 1985 dystopia. The novel was published during Ronald Reagan’s troubled presidency, which witnessed second-wave feminism, anti-pornography, pro-life and pro-legal abortion campaigns, but the first season of the adaptation was likewise released during troubled times, a few months after the controversial election of Donald Trump as the 50th President of the USA, which created an equally tense political scene. Women across the world were protesting for female and human rights, often dressed in the now iconic Handmaid’s costume.

In the Anthropocene era, the pace of human development outpaces that of natural evolution, disrupting ecological balance and transforming humans into a potent geological force. Frequently, humans reduce the complexity of other life forms or natural entities on the planet, treating them as mere kinds of resources or energy used by humans without adequate consideration for the future. This perceived human superiority creates a dichotomy between humans and non-humans, further influencing knowledge production dynamics. However, the boundaries between nature and culture have been blurred because of the advancement in science and technology, and nature is not something out there, as a negligible externality.
