Making Space: Literary Constructions of Identity and Community

April 24, 2020

A Graduate Conference in the Department of English, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

The concept of “making space” is both powerful and problematic. Making space for different identities and communities feels necessary—as Virginia Woolf so importantly emphasizes, a “room of one’s own” is imperative for claiming, creating, and expressing intellectual identity. Yet mere rhetoric about making space for difference risks condescension and absolution from the difficult work of community formation. This tension encourages us to ask: who is making space for whom? Who is included and excluded in this space-making?
