With the recent publication of the first biography of Kathy Acker by Chris Kraus, an anniversary edition of Blood and Guts in High School, a short volume of correspondence, and at least two scholarly monographs, there would appear to be a critical revival of Kathy Acker in the making.  But with the “death” of postmodernism and its waning influence on recent studies of literary history, does Acker’s work—often considered a quintessential example of experimental pomo—still demand to be read?  If so, why?  How does Acker’s work move beyond its “postmodernism” and matter for readers today?  Papers considering these questions, as well as those exploring the recent Acker revival and/or influence on the San Francisco literary scene are welcome.  Abstrac

Hot Mess: Nasty Feminisms in Performance

On February 25, 2017 at Fashion Week in Milan, over 40 statuesque women stalked Missoni’s runway in pink pussyhats. Was this a rebellious act of women’s defiance in a world they are systematically put down or a neoliberal opportunism to capitalize on a world in which feminism is a burgeoning trend? This trend didn’t begin with the Women’s March or Lady Gaga, and it didn’t begin with Donald Trump’s “nasty” label. Women were “bad feminists” as early as the 1990s. Second wave feminists rejected third wave performers for the controversial way they used their bodies and spoke their minds to a public who didn’t want to hear or see them (Buszek). Today we hear and see them, labeling them and ourselves as “difficult”, “nasty”, and “bad” (Gay).
