Transformative Pedagogy: From Conformity to Critical Thinking in the College Classroom (NeMLA)

In Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom (1994), bell hooks warns readers about a serious crisis in education marked by the increasing reluctance of students to learn and, ultimately, of teachers to teach. In order to fight apathy in the college classroom and the ‘banking system’ into which higher education is often trapped, hooks urges teachers and students to embrace an engaged pedagogy that allows both to build community, respect difference, and foster cr

Genre Trouble: Interrogating the Gaze through Film Genre (NeMLA 2020)

Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences’ expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and

NeMLA 2020: Psychoanalysis and Laughter: Unconscious Meanings and Political Subversions

In his famous study on “Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious," Freud argues that jokes, and the laughter they elicit, allow a kind of access to the unconscious. They permit, among other things, the fulfillment of repressed desires, the channeling of aggression into an acceptable social form, and polysemic satisfaction. As the structure of a joke operates similarly to the structure of a dream (by condensation and displacement, metaphor and metonymy), it also enables the revelation
