In her 2014 Transgender Studies Quarterly article, "The Technical Capacities of the Body, Assembling Race, Technology, and Transgender," Jules Gill-Peterson argues that "if both transgender and race benefit from treatment as technical capacities of the body, it remains to explain how it is they retain their differences in this framework as well as how they are made more or less available at various ecological scales by systems of normalization and regulation" (412).

Dust storms. Flooding.  The fear of nuclear fallout.  While literary critics associate American authors of the 1930s and 40s with leftist political and economic thought, they often ignore concern in the period’s literature and other cultural works with major environmental crises.  In my forthcoming book, The Green Depression: American Ecoliterature of the 1930s and 40s (U of Miss. Press, Oct. 2020), I identify ways that depression-era literature contributed to shifts in conservationist thought during the period that would lay the groundwork for the development of environmental thought in the second half of the 20th century.

"Hollywood and the Holocaust" Conference Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 2:04pm
Elyce Rae Helford / Middle Tennessee State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 12, 2020

I seek original papers for a panel on "Hollywood and the Holocaust" for Middle Tennessee State University's Holocaust and Genocide Studies Conference in Murfreesboro (near Nashville), TN, Oct 21-23.

Specific topics may emphasize a single director or film or address a theme or representational style. My goal is to include some diversity of approach and paper subject within the broad field of Hollywood cinema's engagement with the Holocaust, 1930s-present.

There is potential for future publication via journal special issue or published conference volume.
