Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

 Time, Space, and Epistemic Violence in Hemispheric American Literature

This panel seeks papers that explore the depiction of time and space in hemispheric American Literature and the ways in which traditional conceptualizations may be read as a form of epistemic violence. How do the depictions of physical spaces in works from the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States interact with complex configurations of time as progressive, circular, or even anti-linear and irregular—narrative time as composed of a randomized trail of apexes and abysses? How does this literature address/redress/move beyond the concepts of time and space and the harm caused by the imposition of Western paradigms?

From March artist Nate Powell sharing a poster design for the Women’s March to Phil Noto’s revised image of Muslim American superhero Kamala Khan going viral in response to the Executive Order on Immigration, comics have played an active role in recent social protests.  They have formed the visual vocabulary of protest, taking advantage of the combination of text and image to efficiently circulate ideas of resistance.  The role of comics in social protest is not new.
