NeMLA Panel - Literature, Theory, and Visual Arts: Hybrid Regimes in the 20th and 21st Century

updated: 
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 9:54am

The panel invites theoretical reflections and/or case studies on questions of influence, convergence, correspondence, contagion, intertextuality, and cross-fertilization in the discourses of contemporary literature and literary criticism, critical theory, visual arts, and art criticism. Where, why, and how do (or may) the discourses of the three seemingly independent disciplines intersect? How has the vocabulary of one helped shape the conceptual tools of another? What new possibilities of interarts comparison does this hybridation open for the Comparative Literature of the 21st century?

The objective of this session is to consider transnational writers of various cultures and languages both past and present.  In so doing, one must think critically and creatively about voices of the past in a comparative analysis with voices of the present.  It is said that “history repeats itself.”  How, then, do particular writers of the past (or recent past) and writers of the present treat matters of race, cultural divide or unity, politics, gender, feminism, social and societal views, separatism, oppression version privilege, strength of a people, empowerment, hope, freedoms, despair, and triumphs?  Are these issues expressed with the same concern, depth, pause, or insight today as they were a century ago?  Reflect upon reception, inception, and dece

Jacques Rancière, for instance, insists that politics determines the ontological status of its subjects, rather than the reverse; no “human being” preexists the political act.
