Bodies in (R)Evolution: Labor, Embodiment, and Resistance

The covid-19 pandemic not only sparked conversations on the gendered division of household chores and care but also brought to light the paradox of the “essential-worker. Despite being deemed “essential to society, these workers-often women, immigrants, and people of color were paid low wages and treated as expendable. However, amidst these challenges, the pandemic also catalyzed the expansion of alternative labor forms and care networks, beyond capitalist economies

The Right to Read/The Right to Speak and Academic Freedom in the Classroom (20978) NeMLA

In educational settings, safeguarding free speech is crucial for upholding democratic principles, yet campuses increasingly face censorship and suppression of dissenting voices. By fostering an environment that values free expression and respectful dialogue, educators can prepare students to become informed citizens who think critically and contribute positively to the (r)evolution of democratic society. How do educators include censored, controversial and diverse perspectives into their curr

Silent Revolution: Silence as a form of female resistance

In her seminal work, Oscillation Between Power and Denial (1981), Julia Kristeva presents a compelling argument: “Estranged from language, women are visionaries, dancers who suffer as they speak (167). This statement encapsulates the prevalent association of women with the unspoken, the unsaid, and the ineffable, contrasting with men’s more frequent link to language and the act of speaking. Throughout history, women have been denied the full resources of language, often for

Pedagogical Responses to Whatever's Happening Now

Humanities programs, and the writing programs often housed within, are under threat for reasons that are as much political as they are economic. It is not simply a question of whether humanities degrees or writing skills reward students with economic value or how much revenue humanities faculty bring to an institution, but of what humanities programs and writing classes teach: critical histories, texts that capture the perspectives of the oppressed, and how to think critically about complicat

Family Abolition and Social Revolution: Theories of Social Reproduction Now

The last twenty years have marked a wave of renewed interest in social reproduction theory, from the republication of work associated with the 1970s Wages for Housework campaign from theorists like Mariarosa Dalla Costa, Selma James, and Silvia Federici, to new works by Federici and a host of new thinkers focused on questions of social reproduction including Kathi Weeks, Nancy Fraser, Sophie Lewis, M.E.

We are constantly engaged in processes of reading. We read literary texts, historical sources, films and other media, political moods and affects, and shifting social formations. Amongst the plethora of reading strategies available to us, close reading is perhaps the most widely known and most accepted one in literary studies (cf. I.A. Richards and William Empson). Other approaches to texts include ‘paranoid’ and ‘reparative reading’ (Sedgwick 1997), ‘distant rea

Borders / Dialectics/ Civility

In 1966, Adorno opened his magnum opus by claiming that “Hegel’s dialectics constituted the unsuccessful attempt to use philosophical concepts for coping with all that is heterogeneous to those concepts. Since, according to Adorno, Hegel’s efforts ended in failure, “the relationship to dialectics [was] due for an accounting. But we might wonder, today (60 years later), where such an accounting stands? Our present is defined by ever more contentious border

This panel invites proposals which closely look at the relationship of the Dalit community and other subaltern communities of postcolonial countries and ecological disasters — both natural and man-made faced by them. Ironically, these communities contribute the least to environmental degradation, as they generally practice a self-sustainable lifestyle, but face the brunt of these catastrophes, both economically and societally, with their women being the worst victims as they already are

Resurrection Early Modern Women - CONFERENCE

Description: Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own imagines Shakespeare’s plays being written by Judith, a fabricated sister of Shakespeare, who had escaped an arranged marriage, and turned playwright. Woolf’s text proposes that women need private spaces to write, but this view implies that women during the early modern period were not already prolifically writing, which is not true. Many women during the early modern period were writing and publishing

(R)Evolutionizing the Family: from the Procreative Imperative to Radical Kinship

Does the evolution of the family form, of its own volition, revolutionize kinship? What does? Can “family as a social form be salvaged  by divorcing it from systems of heteropatriarchal power and privilege? Recent developments in family formation appear to do just the opposite by reinscribing long-critiqued patriarchal structures from the biological imperative (the expectation that women will prioritize reproduction over production) and paternity as ownership to the privatiz
