What gendered and sexed identities are made possible through modernist cultural production? How relevant are they to contemporary rearticulations of embodiment, including transgender and genderqueer subjectivities?
Topics relating to the construction and representation of gendered and sexed subjectivity may include, but need not be limited to:

[UPDATE]Political Speak: The Use and Abuse of Rhetoric in Support of Torture and Punishment SAMLA: 11/5-11/7 2010 Abstracts 4/30

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 - 6:15pm
Jessica Elena Charles/ South Atlantic Modern Language Association SAMLA

Torture: What is the fascination with this arcane activity? The very nature torture is that it speaks to us viscerally—a prolonged sensory activity that captivates its audience with images of pain and misery. It is something society looks down upon yet simultaneously has an almost obsessive interest in viewing, dissecting and in some cases applying.

This panel seeks to present theories and analysis regarding the use of rhetorical methods in history, literature, art and film to rally the masses in support of the very activities that society collectively deems heinous.

The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States in November 2008 was hailed by many as a transformative moment in the history of race relations within the United States, and the USA's relationship with the global community. Yet, Obama's first year as President has resulted in frustration for many of his supporters, as policy goals remain goals not achievements and the USA continues to be seen by many as oppressive and imperialist.
