NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

In November 1621 colonists in Massachusetts celebrated a year of survival and their first harvest  with a feast that has since been called The First Thanksgiving. The feast was a supposed  celebration of resilience after hardship. It was not until 1863, in the midst of the American Civil  War and with the nation divided, that this feast was enshrined as a national holiday and a  touchstone of American tradition and ideology: a story of togetherness projected over the  realities of division, exceptionalism, genocide, and slavery.

ISTANBUL KULTUR UNIVERSITYENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE DEPARTMENTGraduate Seminar 2021Representation of Women in 20th and 21st Century Novel. “We the precocious, we the repressed of culture, our lovely mouths gagged with pollen, our wind knocked out of us, we the labyrinths, the ladders, the trampled spaces, the bevies – we are black and we are beautiful” asserts Helene Cixous deciphering the attributed meaning of being a woman (“The Laugh of the Medusa” 878). Throughout history, patriarchy has created a woman myth to define women’s sexual and gender identity, confining them into motherhood, madness, or monstrous images to devalue their role in society.

"There Will Be Poems": Depictions of Masculinity and Care in Modern Media

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:42pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

The title for this session is taken from the AMC series The Terror, in which an older man is heartbroken as he stands by the bed of his dying captain. “It was an honor serving you, sir. You are a good man. There will be poems,” he assures him (The Terror Episode 9). His grief and his care are portrayed sincerely and not as an indication of a lack of masculinity or courage. His desire to create poems for a beloved dying man is not pathologized and instead represents a strength of character. This year, NEMLA asks us to consider the theme of care, and our vulnerabilities and interdependence on each other.

The sudden outbreak of a pandemic makes us revisit what “normal” is comprised of. We saw this recently and now “new normal” has become integral part of our conversations.

What is disability? What is care?

 

Disability Scholar Margaret Price provides the following guidelines for care: 

“It means giving more when one has the ability to do so, and accepting help when that is needed. It does not mean knowing exactly what another’s pain feels like, but it does mean respecting each person’s pain as real and important… [C]are must emerge between subjects considered to be equally valuable... and it must be participatory in nature, that is, developed through the desires and needs of all participants” (2015).
