This session will deal with the ways that a feminist and/or genderqueer praxis in art curatorship can address historical inequalities in the art world.

In literature and popular culture, the non-violent approach is vastly underrepresented as a viable philosophy. This is problematic because the stories we tell shape the imaginary we live out of. Part of the reason the pacifist position seems so untenable is precisely because it remains so unimagined. One thinks of the so-called canon with its repertoire of violent heroes: Homer, Shakespeare, Milton, Arthurian legend. Even today’s popular “canon” features heroes who consistently solve problems through violence: the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Comics’ films, the John Wick series, and the classic, decade-spanning Alien franchise. The myth of redemptive violence continues unabated.
With a growing social consciousness in the contemporary milieu, even large corporations such as Disney have begun to take an activist turn. Of late, Marvel has been especially sensitive to ongoing issues regarding race and gender. This is particularly evident in its latest incarnations available through Disney +: Wandavision and Falcon and the Winter Solider. Accompanying this messaging has also been a positive representation of mental health care and the effects of individual and collective trauma. These are not superheroes who take a beating and walk away unscathed; these are highly developed and nuanced characters whose arcs take shape over several different films and multiple episodes.

Vladimir Nabokov once suggested that any form of reading which pays heightened attention to the socio-political realities of our world, rather than paying exclusive attention to the use of literary devices present in a given text, constitutes a form of “bad reading.” In her 2017 book Paraliterary: The Making of Bad Readers in Postwar America, Merve Emre works to reclaim this form of bad reading, arguing that these so-called bad readers are “literate subjects [who use] reading to navigate a political climate that champion[s] liberal individualism, on the one hand, while establishing unprecedented forms of institutional oversight, on the other” (5).
NeMLA's 53rd Convention will be held in Baltimore, MD between March 10-13, 2022. More information here: http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla.html
This NeMLA panel invites abstracts between 200-300 words that engage with questions and frameworks of dissent that have erupted in the recent socio-political movements led by women and female identifying subjects in the time of the pandemic, and consider the possibilities of forging radical plurinational and intersectional feminist solidarities.

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2021-2022 issue. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books published in the last several years that are in some way related to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.
