Transnational discourse on Islam and gender has been a highly contested area of debate. Lila Abu-Lughod criticizes the notion of the existence of a “Muslim woman” because it is necessary to first define women’s historical , economic, and social status before making any statement applying to them. Our panel follows Abu-Lughod in an effort to combat essentializing. While Abu-Lughod primarily analyzes sociological accounts, our panel will investigate literary archetypes, images, and stereotypes of Muslim women, both from texts originating within the Muslim world, and from texts whose authors come to Islam as outsiders. We will focus on how cultural and religious identity is constructed in these memoirs, novels, short stories and poems.
Our panel is focused upon networks, and the ways in which cinema and media have responded to the difficulty in representing complete models of contemporary networked existence. Our first speaker will be exploring how networks are represented geographically, specifically examining the second season of True Detective. In the series California is characterized as an infrastructural-economic network. This network poses significant problems for policing networks trying to mediate criminal activity that moves fluidly across borders and behind political obfuscation. In the series, effective policing is part and parcel with efforts to maintain a stable sense of identity complicated by the incongruity between personal and professional networks.
We have found the recent debates that pit formalism against historicism to be rather dissatisfying. This seminar holds that the way out of this false dichotomy is through Marxism. We seek to understand how Marxism and related political positions offer a fruitful engagement with literary and aesthetic form precisely because of their political perspectives. Moreover, from the standpoint of Marxism, we are interested in how social and historical issues are formal issues in aesthetics.

In this Author-meets-Reader roundtable, Martine Sonnet will discuss her work alongside 3-4 scholars working on French-language filiation narratives. Filiation narratives reflect an effort to recover aspects of one’s family history which were not transmitted to the author. The quest for information, garnered through various possible sources, is then incorporated into the narrative. We invite scholars working either on a filiation narrative subgenre or on Sonnet’s work in particular. Papers may be delivered in French or English.
