I. Convocatorias

1. 44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts
GENDERED SPACES: THE PLACES OF SPANISH WOMEN’S FILM AND THEATER
The goal of this seminar is to explore the complex relationship between gender and space in both contemporary Spanish women?s cinema and theater. What exactly is ?female space? and how is it used by dramatists and directors to convey female-centered messages while simultaneously addressing universal themes? In theater, how does space function both at the textual level as well as on stage? Is it fundamentally a case of mimesis, metaphor or something else entirely? Many dramatists employ spatial realism as a tool to highlight and hence subvert traditional female roles on stage, but others use postmodern and absurdist distancing techniques to create metaphorical spaces in which characters create their own narratives and identities. In film, the spaces to be discussed include those in front, behind and on the movie screen. Some points of departure for film could include the politics of everyday spaces and the division between public and private spheres in women?s cinema; the spectatorial space of the place of a female audience; the movie theater as heterotopia and heterochronia; and the space behind the camera made by women filmmakers. How does the representation of these spaces differ between film and theater? Is the space created by directors and playwrights a safe one for women? Finally, what is the space, off-screen, and off stage, like? Is this is the symbolic space of women in feminist theory that, according to de Lauretis consists of spaces in the margins of hegemonic discourses, social spaces carved in the interstices of institutions and in the chinks and cracks of the power-knowledge apparati?? Seminar participants will be free to address these and other definitions of this allusive and elusive notion in order to illuminate the work of contemporary women dramatists and filmmakers alike.

Please submit 300-word abstracts on film to Barbara Zecchi bzecchi@spanport.umass.edu and on theater to Helen Freear-Papio hfreear@holycross.edu.
