Early Modern Women on Politics and Ethics

In Nicomachean Ethics and Politics, Aristotle conceived ethics and politics to be both interrelated and exclusively male endeavors. This notion continued to be influential in the early modern period (c. 1500 – 1800). Yet in recent decades, feminist scholarship has showed that throughout the early modern world numerous women nonetheless discussed, developed, and challenged politics and ethics in profound and often surprising ways. 

Reimagining #MeToo in South Asia And the Diaspora (Edited Collection of Essays)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Dr. Nidhi Shrivastava
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

This edited volume seeks to examine how sexual violence and feminist interventions in South Asia and the Diaspora have been articulated in the context of but, more importantly, in opposition to the #MeToo Movement. We seek to understand how the feminist movement has radically diverged from the assimilationist discourse of the #MeToo Movement and, consequently, the Global North. The #MeToo movement has not made an impact at the grassroots level because it is hinged on the victim-survivor to speak up. In an era where the Global North has been a model for influencing change in the Global South, there has been an inconspicuous absence of recognition and impact of the #MeToo Movement.

+++EXTENDED DEADLINE+++++Whether Poe was correct in asserting that “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world,” he certainly was correct in associating her demise, mythical or otherwise, with the generation of art.  This special session for PAMLA 2022 invites papers that consider the significance of representations of death in modern popular culture.  Papers may engage the following questions or consider the topic from other directions.  How does the gendered and raced association of death with femininity produce normative masculinity?  In what ways does the overdetermined association between women and mortality stabilize concepts of geography, including nation?  Can we even imagine “America” without the quoti

PAMLA 2022. Los Angeles, November 11-13

Special Session

This session explores Post-War road narratives by women, written in English, French, Spanish or Indigenous languages, that present fictionalized accounts of journeys across North America. Charting out a comparative, multi-ethnic, intersectional, and feminist counter-history to the American road narrative tradition allows us to envision North America not only as a continent made up of sovereign nations and dependent territories, a vast landform etched with borders, but also as a landmass traversed from North to South, East to West, by women on the quest for independence, solidarity, recognition, and freedom.

In this course, students will explore the ways in which sf writers deny mainstream representations of gender, sexuality, culture, nationality, and race by crafting stories that pulls in, rather than leaves out underrepresented groups of people. During the course we will focus on texts either by sf writers or about sf that allow us to re-think the mainstream. Through the focus on these texts we will ultimately assess the extent to which literature, particularly sf, acts as a vehicle for socio-cultural, and ideological change. 

 

As we read, view, and discuss these texts, we will pursue the following:

Henry James Review
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Writing nearly four decades ago in the Henry James Review, Darshan Singh Maini, in an essay on, “The Politics of Henry James,” observed that “it is difficult to imagine Henry James in relation to any kind of politics, feudal, parliamentary, radical, charismatic, or messianic” (158). Perhaps unsurprisingly, James’s two most explicitly political novels–The Bostonians (1886) and The Princess Casamassima (1886)--have most often been treated as anomalous parts of his oeuvre, and together are often read as signs of James’s deep skepticism about (or lack of real interest in) radical movements and ultimately, in Alex Beringer’s words, “[his] final rejection of political and social radicalism” (37).
