Child Abuse and the Supernatural (NeMLA 2014; Harrisburg, PA, 4/3-4/6)

Saturday, July 20, 2013 - 4:34pm
Melissa Bobe / Rutgers University

This panel seeks to examine the way child abuse figures in narratives of the last century that use a supernatural frame and/or supernatural elements. A broad range of texts may be explored, from Henry James's The Turn of the Screw to Gore Verbinski's The Ring. What aspect of abusive environments does the supernatural represent? What might it obscure? Is the supernatural utilized by the child victim as a means by which to regain agency? Or does it result in further objectification? This panel seeks papers that will consider how the abused child functions within a supernatural frame, bearing in mind questions of space, autonomy, and boundaries in regards to both child subject and supernatural element/environment.

The Gothic Body: The Physical Depiction of the Female Gothic (NeMLA)

Saturday, July 20, 2013 - 11:06am
Neena Cinquino/ The City College of New York

Since Ellen Moers' original designation of the Female Gothic, the term continues to evolve: The amalgamation of femininity's depiction in literature and Gothic studies does not conclude with Literary Women (1976). Therefore, this panel will concentrate on the female body's involvement in what is considered Gothic; as Moers denotes, what "predominates over reality, the strange over the commonplace, and the supernatural over the natural, with one definite auctorial intent: to scare." At the root of this fear is a woman's anxiety of childbirth and the subsequent call to motherhood, according to Moers. This fear can be dealt with in a variety of ways: avoidance, elimination, and torture.

Area of my focus is tragedy. I also submitted my M.A thesis about tragedy. The area that I work on is some how a new approach towards tragedy, which builds upon previous theories, however, explores new possibilities in forming Tragedy.
