Door Bolts, Thresholds, and Peep-Holes: Liminality and Domestic Spaces in Early Modern England An Edited Volume

Domestic spaces lay at the centre of the lives of early modern English men and women.  Yet their liminality has often been under-investigated, if not underestimated, by scholars.  On the one hand, households served as a hubbub of familial and filial activity (housewarmings, births, conventicles, fast/feast days and reading groups), on the other hand as sites of the foreign and fatal (burglaries, squatting, murders, possessions, and devastating fires).  The house was as permeable as it was penetrable.  This despite attempts to ward off or perturb would be intruders: via witches’ marks, locks, bars, fences, guard dogs, community patrols and the ‘watch’.

Special issue: Marguerite Duras

updated: 
Monday, December 4, 2017 - 12:25pm
S: Journal of the Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

For the most part, Lacanian discussions of Marguerite Duras’ work have focused on The Ravishing of Lol V. Stein. While this should not surprise – the novel was presented by Michèle Montrelay during Lacan’s Seminar in 1965 and Lacan himself devoted a short essay to it – it also raises the question whether other novels, theatre texts or films by Duras can be approached from a Lacanian point of view, to an equally illuminating effect.

The editors of S invite you to present readings of texts and films by Duras, other than Lol V. Stein. This may also be an occasion to address more general topics such as love, sexual difference, voice, gaze, repetition and politics, via a confrontation of Duras with Lacan.
