Desire and the Erotics of Introspection
Desire and the Erotics of Introspection
In this seminar, we wish to examine how people of different positionalities vis a vis the ‘center’ and ‘peripheries’ of modern research universities, practice comparative literary studies within institutions which, from the start, were built upon the logic of exclusion and exclusionary tactics. The “modern university” stands in a long tradition of colonial and racialized traditions of knowledge-making which purported to be secular and universalizable.
Sapphic Echoes: Representations of Female Love and Desire in Global Literatures #19149
This seminar asks questions and invites responses that explore representations of female love and desire in global literatures. How have the complex poetics of female love and desire—the desire to have something, or escape something, or punish, or know—been represented over time? What strategies have been employed to subvert literary conventions defined predominantly by male perspectives on home, love, war, victory and loss? How have female characters navigated the interplay between things done (overtly) and thought (covertly) to reveal the inner web of desires, fears and conflicts that constitute a female poetics of love and longing?

Humanities Open Acess
Volume 10, Issue 3 (September 2021)
Humanities is an international, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open access journal for scholarly papers published quarterly online.
Ever since the publication of Foucault’s multi-volume work The History of Sexuality, scholarship, whether theoretically, historically, or literarily minded, has reckoned with the call to develop less anachronistic methodologies to analyze premodern expressions of desire. While scholars such as David Halperin and Susan Lanser have risen to the challenge of Foucault’s text and expanded his analysis to address feminine and queer desires, both generally and within their specific periods of study, these theoretical and methodological strides in the history of sexuality have penetrated fields at various rates. This seminar seeks to help remedy this disciplinary issue, particularly within the literature of medieval studies and classics.

Engaging the Audience: From Antiquity to the Renaissance
In The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Erving Goffman likens social interaction to theatre, describing “performance” as “all the activity of an individual which occurs during a period marked by his continuous presence before a particular set of observers and which has some influence on the observers.” The individual coming into contact with other people is like an actor on stage, who will employ available theatrical devices in order to manage the impression made on the audience.

The Gendered Mimesis project in collaboration with the ERC-funded Homo Mimeticus Project (Institute of Philosophy / Faculty of Arts, KU Leuven; http://www.homomimeticus.eu/) is pleased to announce a two-day international conference on the subject of “Mimetic Inclinations” in the work of the Italian feminist philosopher and political theorist Adriana Cavarero.
Margaret Atwood’s Penelopiad, Madeline Miller’s Circe, Natalie Haynes’s A Thousand Ships, Luigi Malerba’s Ithaca Forever, Chigozie Obioma’s An Orchestra of Minorities, and Colm Toibin’s House of Names are just a small sample of contemporary works of literature that engage with and re-tell Classical literature and mythology. Drawing upon ancient subject matters, these new works demonstrate that the Classical tradition remains lively and relevant, even as they pull in new histories, points of view, and contexts.
