This panel seeks to interrogate approaches to the teaching feminist literature and constructions of identity in the classroom space post-election. Student attitudes toward and instructor approaches to feminist teaching practices and the teaching of feminism have been forced to the forefront since the campaign and US Presidential election in 2016. Global definitions of feminism and its scope have come into question, pushing discussions to revolve around what it truly means to champion human rights and navigate gender politics. This panel will look at how attitudes towards feminist identification have shifted in literature and classroom politics in reaction to a public rhetorical debate over its definitions and intents.

Literature, religion and art began with objects of desire and have never abandoned the theme. From Helen of Troy and the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden via Novalis’s blue flower to the throne of Westeros, numerous examples spring immediately to mind, and if the ten commandments tell people not to covet anything that belongs to their neighbours, this surely implies that they are highly likely to do just that.

Whereas religious study often dwells with the theological question of how the sacred has been revealed to humanity, sociologists of religion Emile Durkheim and Max Weber preferred to ask how the sacred is made and remade within a society. For them, human activity assumes a power sometimes attributed to supernatural forces: the power to produce the sacred.
