ASAP/10 Like Rape: Coercion, Comparison, and Sexual Harm

The adjectival qualifiers attending rape are numerous: statutory rape, marital rape, date rape, acquaintance rape, and virtual rape. In delineating manifold patterns of sexual violence, these terms also index the historical and formal contingencies of recognizing sexual harm. Despite the work of feminist activists, scholars, and artists in specifying structures of sexual violence, “rape” persists as an analogy for nonsexual violation to authorize political recognition of other social movements (the “rape of the earth” once lamented by environmentalists).

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid monsters. Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications. Please submit a 250-300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V needs by May 20, 2018 to Crystal O’Leary-Davidson at Middle Georgia State University .
