“To write, and to read, is to be exposed, to expose oneself […] to ‘exscription’.” – The Birth to Presence

 

“We have to begin by getting through, and by means of, the exscription of our body: its being inscribed-outside, its being placed outside the text as the most proper movement of its text; the text itself being abandoned, left at its limit.” – Corpus

Disability studies has a problem with representation. Michael Bérubé locates the roots of this problem in two dominant trajectories of literary disability studies. The first trajectory largely pursues a logic of identification and revelation, a tactic for demonstrating the ubiquity of disabled characters and the overwhelmingly negative thematics attached to their peripheral bodyminds. The second trajectory depends on diagnosing characters as disabled that have not been explicitly designated as such.

CFP for the 2018 ACLA Panel: Tattoos as/in Literature: Beyond the Semiotic and the Bodily.  After the “linguistic turn,” and at the intersection of (post)structuralism, deconstruction, and the evolving series of critical discourses on materiality, bodies, the non-human, theory and literary criticism have discovered a need to read beyond words and purely linguistic signification in general. Images and bodies appear no longer as limits of discourse, or as what needs to be translated into words, but as surfaces of signification in themselves. Derrida’s own spatial and visual experimentation in his writing pointed towards the need to consider the inseparable links between words, images, and bodies, not only in literature, but also in theory and philosophy.
