Rewriting the Abortion Narrative: The Power of Popular Culture

With the Supreme Court poised to radically change or even overturn Roe v. Wade after hearing the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, critical attention is being turned toward the changing ways popular culture depicts abortion. Popular culture is uniquely positioned to offer these narratives, particularly given the research that suggests that the way abortion is depicted in popular culture impacts cultural perceptions of abortion and may even, as Steph Herold has noted, “have very real ‘policy implications,’ particularly in such a politically charged climate.”

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Please consider applying to the forthcoming National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers on continuity and change in the production, dissemination, and reading of Western European books during the 200 years following the advent of printing with movable type. The seminar will pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the Protestant Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which elements such as book layout, typography, illustration, and paratext (e.g., prefaces, glosses, and commentaries) shaped the responses of readers.

When, in his Preface to Lyrical Ballads (1802), William Wordsworth insisted that an “overbalance of pleasure” entails the “circumstance of meter,” he confirmed a philosophical assumption far older than Kant's theory of the sublime. The pervasive assumption—which, today, can be tracked in an on-going 

“affective turn” (necessarily entangled in matters of form and style)—is that the artificial makes possible an understanding of the natural.

In humanities and social sciences, engagements with memory cut across disparate fields from the cognitive, and affective processes of recollection to the narrative and aesthetic acts of simulation and reinterpretation in both private and public spheres. In recent times embodied and somatic histories are widely discussed while documenting the past through registers such as trauma or nostalgia, where memory once again comes to the forefront. Memory and its fraught negotiations between past, present and future, between remembering and forgetting, become a crucial site of contestations and reimaginings of personal and collective subjectivities.
