Precariousness: Challenges and Solidarities (Panel)

Human beings, irrespective of their socio-cultural differences, exist in co-dependence with each other as well as in terms of their relationality to the state. This necessitates the formation of different institutions of care: mutual-aids, co-operative societies, care-centres, and NGOs, which are mechanisms of state-power that both define and threaten human being’s relationship to the state. Regulations imposed upon subject-citizens by the state on a daily basis in the form of ideological inflections make the human mind precarious, while the disciplinary machineries of the state expose them to ineffable stages of biological as well as social risks.

In June 1906, James Joyce wrote to his publisher Grant Richards, who suggested changes to Dubliners for mitigating the text’s supposed ‘indecency’, “I seriously believe that you will retard the course of civilization in Ireland by preventing the Irish people from having one good look at themselves in my nicely polished looking-glass.” Joyce’s metaphor recalls the popular Wildean aphorism, first published in the preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray: “The nineteenth century dislike of Realism is the rage of Caliban at seeing his own face in a glass.

Monday, July 19, 2021

When Siskel and Ebert famously launched their offensive against what they labeled as “Women in Danger films,” they effectively positioned slasher films as anti-feminist, exploitative, and lacking all artistic merit. But in the intervening years, this once much maligned sub-genre has enjoyed increasing acclaim for its subversive potential and reflection of cultural norms. This special issue seeks to examine the elements of the “new slasher” that potentially explain this shift.

When Serena Williams wore a ‘catsuit’ during the 2018 French Open, this choice of clothing was banned because it allegedly showed a lack of “respect” for the game of tennis. The decision, and the overall incident, caused an uproar that went well beyond the world of sports, with many commentators criticizing the ban as a punishment directly aimed at policing women’s bodies.

An extraordinary nineteenth-century American woman, Julia Ward Howe was a courageous abolitionist, suffragist, pacifist, poet, public speaker, and founder of many organizations whose purpose was the intellectual and political advancement of women.  To acknowledge and examine this notable woman’s increasingly complicated and fraught legacy a one-day symposium will be held at Boston University’s College of General Studies (CGS) on June 11, 2022, and includes a luncheon with a keynote address by Pulitzer-Prize winning biographer and historian, Megan Marshall.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Harriet Beecher Stowe Society, Boston University’s College of General Studies (CGS), and CGS’s Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

According to the renown essay Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema, published in 1975 by the feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey, hegemonic cinema has privileged the masculine gaze, objectifying female bodies on the screen and transforming them in mere objects of desire for the male spectator. Mulvey studies the way female bodies have been exposed in cinema to evoque ‘to-be-looked-at-ness’ while becoming the object of the masculine scopophilic gaze within the screen.

Women Writing About Houses

updated: 
Friday, July 2, 2021 - 1:17pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel will explore the particular liminal quality of the way women write about the houses they live in: how they develop relationships with their domestic places, how they express themselves in the way they inhabit the space, and how they may even come to interact with the house as if it’s a knowing, responsive entity. Looking at examples in fiction and memoir, from writers as varied as Virginia Woolf, Shirley Jackson, May Sarton and Sarah Broom, we’ll explore women’s houses as seats of psychic power and sites of domestic alchemy.

The Write Kind of Change: Literature as Social Activism

Monday, June 28, 2021 - 1:52pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Vladimir Nabokov once suggested that any form of reading which pays heightened attention to the socio-political realities of our world, rather than paying exclusive attention to the use of literary devices present in a given text, constitutes a form of “bad reading.” In her 2017 book Paraliterary: The Making of Bad Readers in Postwar America, Merve Emre works to reclaim this form of bad reading, arguing that these so-called bad readers are “literate subjects [who use] reading to navigate a political climate that champion[s] liberal individualism, on the one hand, while establishing unprecedented forms of institutional oversight, on the other” (5).
