“Visibility and Invisibility in Southern Women’s Literature,” is an affiliated group session, hosted by the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society.  One of the panel’s goals is to connect to the theme of SAMLA 96: “Seen and Unseen.”  In that spirit, the session coordinator invites papers that address the theme in a wide variety of ways, with the hope that this session will engender a rich and robust discussion of how the writing of Southern women has examined what is either visible or invisible, seen or unseen.  While the EMRS invites papers from all approaches, we are particularly interested in papers that emphasize how the theme is connected to gender or to the South–or both.

Fraught with moral, religious, racial, sexual, and transgressive configurations, the body is a potent site for reflective practices within popular culture. The self-reflexive matrix of popular culture’s representations of human body functions as a site for materializing possibilities of varying forms of living. As a cultural sign, body features in both normative and non-normative debates on identity, selfhood, social relations, power, institutional surveillance and regulation. The practice of its representations, on the other hand, traditionally enables a culture of shared meaning-making which shapes how an individual perceives, thinks, feels, and acts amidst the production and circulation of discourses.

The Nuclear Age, Redux: Forms and Modes of Environmental Change Change in Transnational North American Literature and Culture

The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the nuclear – as both material reality and cultural phenomenon. On the one hand, the war in Ukraine has evoked memories of the previous nuclear disasters and stoked fears of a continued Cold War. On the other hand, politicians and economists are debating nuclear technology as a sustainable alternative to carbon-intense and fossil-based forms of energy. At the same time, popular texts such as the Oscar-winning movie Oppenheimer (2023) or the miniseries Chernobyl (2019) indicate a renewed fascination with both nuclear capabilities and post-apocalyptic scenarios. Have we entered a new nuclear age, or have we never truly been post-nuclear?
