The clash of people and civilizations from East to West has been a particularly rich, varied, and intense development in history. Formulating new identities, while being surrounded by foreign space and native people, the traveler reflects the changing modes, times, and equally shifting cultural attitudes that can be found in a European’s travel writing. For instance, a glimpse across time into the city of Istanbul, held as a popular travel spot by visitors for centuries, reveals varied cultures, groups of people and their diverse linguistic uses, food choices, social norms and religious customs.

This session deals with film and history in Latin America. The films in discussion should reflect the major historical moments in the region beginning with the age of “discovery” and conquest, colonial rule and independent times.

Under this historical umbrella, the films in this session should address issues of civilización y barbarie, race, slavery, political persecution, misogyny, homophobia and revolution (among others). Participants should be cognizant that visual narratives dealing with race, class, gender, sexuality, language, nation, and identity reflect philosophical tenets prevalent in particular historical moments.

In this seminar we seek to explore stories and representations of injustice and violence that probe audiences’ ethical responsibilities and complicities.  What representational strategies have writers and artists used to challenge discursive frameworks that underpin erasures and exclusions and to invite readers and viewers to assess their implication in systematic injustices? What historical and contemporary responsibilities are excluded by current political discourses on violence and reconciliation? For example, how do the frameworks of mainstream western news and political discourses exclude discussion of North American and European roles in the conditions that precipitate current refugee movements?

Radical Elegy: Memorial Praxis for Precarious Life

 

This seminar addresses elegy as a performative repertoire in political extremity.  Elegy, at a radical pitch, occupies public space and public memory to resist forgetting, a second death.  How have expressive practices to and for the dead generated ideas of justice, bonds of solidarity, ethical responses to violence, and communities of contested memory?

This panel explores the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love and affections expressed by Latin American authors. Its focus is writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would also be considered.

birthplace of jazz, it is also notable for its proud literary heritage. Its iconic setting has

inspired generations of American writers, such as Tennessee Williams, Kate Chopin,

William Faulkner, John Kennedy Toole, and Anne Rice. From Easy Rider to

Thirty years ago, in her seminal book, Holy Feast and Holy Fast: the Religious Significance of Food to Medieval Women, Caroline Walker Bynum proposed that the later Middle Ages witnessed the rise of the first women’s movement in Christian history. Looking within and beyond the purview of religious devotion, this panel welcomes papers that corroborate, qualify, or critique Bynum’s claim by examining medieval representations of female agency. What constitutes female agency in late medieval literature, society and culture? To what end is it exerted? How and by whom is it celebrated and/or censured?
