Saying and Unsaying: Ekphrasis and Apophasis as Feminist Rhetorical Strategies #19154

updated:

Diana Shaffer / NeMLA 53rd annual convention
deadline for submissions:

This roundtable explores how feminist authors have used both ekphrasis and apophasis to question the interrelations of gender, race, class, and socio-economic and political power; and also, to displace traditional, outmoded beliefs, and inherited but dysfunctional historical narratives.  Rhetorically, ekphrasis is defined as vivid, verbal description, or as verbal representation of visual art, or as canonical literature re-envisioned to fit new narratives.  Apophasis refers broadly to denial, repudiation, or negation, and narrowly to a kind of irony in which what on the surface appears to be the case differs radically from what is actually the case.

Sapphic Echoes: Representations of Female Love and Desire in Global Literatures #19149

Seminar format

This seminar asks questions and invites responses that explore representations of female love and desire in global literatures. How have the complex poetics of female love and desire—the desire to have something, or escape something, or punish, or know—been represented over time? What strategies have been employed to subvert literary conventions defined predominantly by male perspectives on home, love, war, victory and loss? How have female characters navigated the interplay between things done (overtly) and thought (covertly) to reveal the inner web of desires, fears and conflicts that constitute a female poetics of love and longing?

Le présent panel se veut le lieu d’exploration et de questionnement des difficultés auxquelles sont confrontées les femmes qui sont loin d’être préoccupées par la construction d’une communauté centrée autour d’une conception sororale unique. Leur engagement dans le cadre des luttes politiques tout comme leur rôle en tant que « gardiennes du temple » des traditions séculaires patriarcales ne sont plus à démontrer. Cependant, existe-t-il des associations des femmes africaines à caractère essentiellement féministe ?

Fantasies of the Subject: Affecting Selves in Contemporary American Literature

 

edited by Paula Barba Guerrero & Laura de la Parra Fernández

 

If what we need to dream, to move our spirits most deeply and directly towards and through promise, is discounted as a luxury, then we give up the core —the fountain— of our power [...] we give up the future of our worlds.

 

—Audre Lorde, “Poetry Is Not a Luxury”
