American Studies Association (ASA) Conference, November 8-11, Atlanta, GA.

In December 2017, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Paul Ryan said, “Baby boomers are retiring—I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country.” Increasing the national birth rate, Ryan claimed, would be “the new economic challenge” for the United States. Meanwhile, the Congressional Republicans led by Ryan passed a tax bill that failed to renew CHIP, the federal health insurance program for children. Caught between pronatalist arguments and a deep skepticism of the welfare state, Republican discourse continues to bypass questions of reproductive oppression—and reproductive justice.

With the recent publication of the first biography of Kathy Acker by Chris Kraus, an anniversary edition of Blood and Guts in High School, a short vilume of correspondence, and at least two scholarly monographs, there would appear to be a critical revival of Kathy Acker in the making.  But with the “death” of postmodernism and its waning influence on recent studies of literary history, does Acker’s work—often considered a quintessential example of experimental pomo—still demand to be read?  If so, why?  How does Acker’s work move beyond its “postmodernism” and matter for readers today?  Papers considering these questions, as well as those exploring the recent Acker revival and/or influence on the San Francisco literary scene are welcome.  Abstrac

On February 25, 2017 at Fashion Week in Milan, over 40 statuesque women stalked Missoni’s runway in pink pussyhats. Was this a rebellious act of women’s defiance in a world they are systematically put down or a neoliberal opportunism to capitalize on a world in which feminism is a burgeoning trend? This trend didn’t begin with the Women’s March or Lady Gaga, and it didn’t begin with Donald Trump’s “nasty” label. Women were “bad feminists” as early as the 1990s. Second wave feminists rejected third wave performers for the controversial way they used their bodies and spoke their minds to a public who didn’t want to hear or see them (Buszek). Today we hear and see them, labeling them and ourselves as “difficult”, “nasty”, and “bad” (Gay).
