The CW’s show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has attracted considerable critical acclaim, including creator and star Rachel Bloom’s Golden Globe for Best Actress and Emmy awards for choreography and editing. Because of its female creator, screenwriter, and directors, its hybrid form as a television musical comedy, and its blatant engagement with “sexist term[s]” and mental illness, the show is ripe for feminist media analysis. I seek proposals for papers for an edited collection on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

The adjectival qualifiers attending rape are numerous: statutory rape, marital rape, date rape, acquaintance rape, and virtual rape. In delineating manifold patterns of sexual violence, these terms also index the historical and formal contingencies of recognizing sexual harm. Despite the work of feminist activists, scholars, and artists in specifying structures of sexual violence, “rape” persists as an analogy for nonsexual violation to authorize political recognition of other social movements (the “rape of the earth” once lamented by environmentalists).
