MLA 2023:  Race, Gender, and Consent in the Global Early Modern

Guaranteed roundtable for MLA 2023 (San Francisco) on race, gender, and consent in the prose, poetry, and drama of the 16th and 17th centuries. We invite roundtable presentations from a wide variety of perspectives – cultural, formal, social, legal, historical – and literary traditions. How can the shifting dynamics of consent and coercion help us understand premodern race-making and gender construction? Comparative and transnational perspectives are especially welcome.  

This roundtable is organized by the MLA forum on Renaissance/Early Modern Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies.

(Trans)Homonationalism in Anti-Gender Times

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 27, 2022

When mass movements are rising up against so-called “gender ideology” and succeeding in implementing anti-trans and anti-queer legislation across the globe, has the time come to reconsider—or perhaps even suspend—radical critiques of queer liberalism, homonormativity, and homonationalism? Elżbieta Korolczuk and Agnieszka Graff, for instance, have asserted that “while feminists, mostly from the global South, have long critiqued the discourse of universal human rights and the neocolonial elements in UN population policies, today it is clear that a wholesale rejection of universalism plays into the hands of right-wing populists” (816).
