The Production of Worry in Post-feminist Media Culture (For Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference 2014-Seattle)

Amanda Rossie / The Ohio State University

This panel seeks to explore and critique the normative protagonists that personify post-feminist media culture while also exposing and contextualizing the underpinnings of these popular narratives that both produce and rely upon worry and/or anxiety for their success or impact. Overwhelmingly, it is the lives of white, middle-class heterosexual women that provide the material for these narratives, and it is this demographic of women who are also the targets of post-feminist media culture's affective ammunition. Yet, these are certainly not the only women who are worrying, especially in a time of recession, political conservatism, and legislative rollbacks on reproductive rights and race-based protections.

Mothers in Children's and Young Adult Literature
Edited by Lisa Rowe Fraustino and Karen Coats

Arguably, the most powerful figure in a child's life is the mother, whether she is present or absent. How have mothers been represented in literature produced for and shared with children and young adults, from the oral tales of the preprint era to the present? What attitudes toward mothers and motherhood are reflected by the texts? What maternal ideologies are inscribed in young readers, and does the genre or target audience make a difference? In what ways do the books themselves, often written by women, serve as metaphorical mothers for their readers?

'I take thee at thy word': Trust in Renaissance Literature

Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 7:13am
Aarhus University

What qualities compose trust and confidence in the Renaissance? What signs call it into question? This seminar seeks to identify points of congruence and contention in sixteenth and seventeenth century notions of trust and how they might be betrayed. From the stage Machiavel who discloses his plans to the audience to the kinsman who pledges his fealty, or the lover who exchanges his faithful vow, how did trust differ across such different domains as religious and political life or familial relations? It is hoped that papers will cross a range of genres including early modern poetry, prose, and drama, as well as major and minor authors. The intended outcome will be to publish suitable papers in a special issue of .
