FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 27 (2018): The Gaze

Issue 27 of FORUM seeks contributions from a wide range of disciplines concerning the gaze, recognition, and identification. All aspects of culture and identity can be said to be subject to a form of the gaze - how does an art form interact with its audience? How does the presence of the gaze affect the ownership of a medium? How is the gaze redirected in subversive art? Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Visibility and readership of subjugated narratives

  • Digital humanities and contemporary audiences

  • The #metoo movement and the male gaze

“MeToo” was originally phrased/used as a slogan by Tarana Burke in 2006 to raise awareness against sexual violence against women. However, it wasn’t until October 15, 2017 that the slogan/phrase/hashtag became known globally. In the aftermath of the Weinstein affair Millano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.“ In less than 24 hours tens of thousands of people replied to her tweet.

RSA Panel: The Female Body as Text in Renaissance Literature

updated: 
Friday, June 15, 2018 - 10:55am
Allison Collins, UCLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 13, 2018

As the Renaissance saw a rise in female literacy and texts addressed to women readers, the relationship between gender and genre was foregrounded in debates about the appropriate texts for women to read – or if it was appropriate for women to read at all.  These conversations particularly centered on the genre of romance, simultaneously a genre classed as feminine and a genre deemed morally inappropriate for women to read. While these debates raged outside literary texts, within the texts themselves, we see women reading and women as objects to be read – both by the reader of the text and by other characters within the text. How does the female body serve as a text within a text?
