"I, too, having lost faith / in language, have placed my faith in language" (Terrance Hayes, "Snow for Wallace Stevens")

As Terrance Hayes exemplifies in his portrayal of Wallace Stevens’ racism, language underpins both care-full and care-less representations. As an interdependent system that necessarily implicates and involves us all, language demands our thoughtful investigation when it comes to how we might communicate care.

Does the body remember what the mind tries to forget? The psychoanalytic tradition grew out of Sigmund Freud's interest in hysteria, and the body's capacity to record painful events in the guise of psychosomatic symptoms. The painful narrative that becomes 'unspeakable' gains potency as it roams around the body, possessing various parts of us. Instead of a wandering womb (originally believed to be the cause of hysteria), it is the banished signifier that wanders, seeking expression.

Film has long been a male-dominated industry, but for decades female directors against all odds have made an indelible mark on cinema. Today there is growing recognition of the important contributions made by women to the world of moving image, with audiences calling for more opportunities to be given to female screenwriters, cinematographers, editors, producers, performers and directors in a bid to defeat gender inequality.

What is ecological discourse? How do feminist principles inform one’s  environmental awareness? The session commences with a lecture that revolves around some of the tenets of ecocriticism and introduces participants to the ecofeminist worldview. Our intention is to create  ecodiscourse as a powerful commentary against transnational (industrial) policies and political grids that sanction ecological  deterioration and human exploitation. In the workshop, participants are asked to formulate their unique approach to specific literary excerpts, develop critical judgments and formulate comparative  approaches to ecocide.

This roundtable is a combined showcase of published work that began on a NeMLA panel and an opportunity to extend the conversation from the original panel and publication to look at the increasingly global enterprise of RuPaul’s Drag Race and its pedagogical power. Across its chapters, RuPedagogies of Realness: Essays on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Teaching and Learning (McFarland 2021) tackles issues from heterotopia, pop-linguistics, philosophies of co-productive learning, and televised curricula to cultural appropriation, sports as pedagogy, stand-up as pedagogy, and even digital drag…right into the COVID-19 pandemic.
