  “Daring Second Glances: Rereading the Rape Narrative” elicits new perspectives on well-known texts that depict sexual violence. This panel seeks to curate a trans-historical discussion about new ways to approach representations of sexual violence. In her book Framing the Rape Victim, Carine Mardorossian argues that postmodern feminists of the 1990s ironically placed the onus of rape deterrence back on women when they “began locating the source of women’s sexual oppression in the representational and rhetorical codes of feminism rather than in societal norms” (42).

Kaiju is a familiar trope in film and television that places giant monsters in direct conflict with fellow monsters and/or everyday citizens. While a larger-than-life creature that attacks Tokyo is likely the most familiar form of kaiju, additional iterations include apes, dragons, dinosaurs, and even robots.  Kaiju as a genre has evolved along with cinema; technical developments no longer require men stomping around in rubber costumes as CGI enables bigger and more frightening monsters to haunt our screens. With a timeless kitsch quality, kaiju is solidly placed within our collective pop culture psyche.

In his three volume study of technological historicity, Technics and Time, Bernard Stiegler contends that contemporary culture is characterized by the incessant technological exteriorization of our interiors. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sustain a constant and seemingly stable feed of our psychological maneuvers in a variety of media. But what happens when the words, photos, or sounds you just posted are subject to commentary, reframing, and sometimes deletion? This is precisely what occurs in online creative writing collaboration.

Combining disability and modernist studies, this panel engages in current discourses on disability in modernist texts. The modernist moment, marked by war trauma, advances in psychology, and eugenics, is a rich area of inquiry for disability theory. Recent disability theory argues that representing disability is an effort to engage with the unknowable, which we also see in the modernist preoccupation with connection. Papers may address representations of disability in modernist texts and/ or how authors negotiated their disabilities.

In 1995, George Haggerty and Bonnie Zimmerman’s landmark volume Professions of Desire: Lesbian and Gay Studies in Literature (MLA), followed by William Spurlin’s Lesbian and Gay Studies and the Teaching of English (NCTE, 2000), began addressing the esoteric discussions that complicate intersections among gender, sexuality, and other identity constructs within the English classroom.

This panel examines writings by Latinas during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It utilizes Justice Sonia Sotomayor's “wise Latina” figure as a framework for how different writers identify and subvert different forms of social oppression in the U.S. This panel explores how these subversions are created using specific aesthetic conceits that are culturally nuanced and thus provide moments of community fashioned healing and empowerment that are specific to their own communities while also making spaces for solidarity between Latinas.
