MMLA 2021: Countering the Culture in Contemporary Fiction

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 1, 2021

Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant. 

 

Central questions include:

  • What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?

  • What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?
