Poetics and Politics of Place: Literature, Hegemony, and Resistance

updated: 
Thursday, August 18, 2016 - 11:22am
ACLA 2017, Utrecht
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

Organizers: J. Engel Szwaja Franken and Samuel Jaffee

To submit an abstract, please follow the instructions at acla.org

This seminar will begin by proposing that literature has been instrumental both in the construction and maintenance of national hegemonies, and in projects of resistance to them. As we consider literature’s contributions to the poetics of place and places, we will remain close to this dialectic. That is, we will focus on the productive tension of this contradictory interdependence and its effects both in literature and in the wider politics of region and place. We will examine both how national hegemony marks the space of literature and how literature places a certain tension on the space of the nation.

ACLA 2017 - Feminist Philosophies of Media

This seminar examines how feminism and media inform and create one another. Media have played a role in the historical positioning of women as they have served as tools of mediation: the typist, the film editrice, phone operators, the virgin as commune between gods and mortals, the psychic medium, etc. Considering this, we find feminist philosophies to be informed through various positions of mediation but are also interested in feminist philosophies that are in conversation with the phenomena of mediation. How does the body serve as an instrument of philosophical inquiry? What are the limits of this instrumentality?

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD 23-26 March 2017

Depression-era literature is often regarded in stark contrast to the periods that frame it—the 1920s and the postwar—which have been deemed altogether more compatible with each other both thematically and stylistically. American writers of the Thirties, as the story goes, tended to immerse themselves in the political culture of the period, eschewing modernist concerns in favor of deterministic narratives that offered scathing social criticism and echoed a leftist agenda. Indeed, the period has been critically defined by the work of writers like John Steinbeck, Jack Conroy, James Agee, Michael Gold, and Richard Wright and more generally by the mode of the proletarian genre.

While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.
