Gloria Anzaldúa describes the U.S.-Mexico border as “una herida abierta,” as a wound constantly reopened and which facilitates the lives of “those who...go through the confines of the ‘normal’” (25). Here, wounds are the product of national boundaries and produce “the half dead” and other deviant figures. Anzaldúa’s theorization of woundedness opens up a discussion of the wounding function of nation states, addressed in contemporary theoretical frameworks like Jasbir Puar’s discussion of maiming in Palestine and Eunjung Kim’s notion of curative violence in Korea. In both approaches to wounded bodies, theory, like the body, is located in national contexts.
CFP: "Towards Critical Academic Studies: Tracing the Effects of Conflict, Crisis, and Communication in Higher Education"
Violence on campus. Decline of the Humanities. Impoverished contingent labor. Student debt. Sexual harassment. Hate speech. Death of tenure. Conversations surrounding volatile subjects such as these are powerfully shaping the lives of those of us who work and learn in 21st-century academe.
Executive Committees for the Forum on Medieval French Literature and the Forum on Sixteenth-Century French Literature, Joint Call for Proposals:
We’re very excited to invite proposals for Digitorium 2020, a multi-disciplinary Digital Humanities conference held at the University of Alabama from October 1-3, 2020. We seek proposals from a range of people including those who are brand new in the field of digital humanities, experienced scholars, practitioners, students, and anybody in-between to create an inclusive environment where everybody can learn something from each other. Proposals should demonstrate how we as digital humanists can engage with communities and our scholarship in new and innovative ways using digital methods.
As Gloria Anzaldúa states in her seminal work on identities and borders, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987), migrants are marked and defined by the open wounds caused by crossing the frontier. Our own culture is defined by the experience of crossing borders. Thus, we feel impelled to consider the consequences of constant and unavoidable transitions that shape us now as much as they have in the past.
