  • Resisting Xenophobia: Transatlantic Mobility and Aleksandar Hemon’s
           Immigrant Autobiography The Book of My Lives

    • Authors: Elvira Bolanca-Lowman
      Abstract: The article examines the significance of xenophobic language used in the current portrayal of migration in mainstream media and its potential to determine Western – i.e. especially U.S. American and European – understandings of the migration debate. By critically observing how politically diverse media outlets essentialize the identity of migrants, the article attempts to expose the dangers inherent in the emerging xenophobic anti-immigration rhetoric. The focus on Aleksandar Hemon’s personal account of displacement and the subsequent difficulties and opportunities that arise from his life in diaspora serve to humanize the migrant self. In this context, special attention will be paid to Hemon’s ability to both transgress national ideas of belonging and reconstruct a self that is at home in Sarajevo as well as in Chicago. The selected sections from Hemon’s autobiographical narration will be put into a dialogue with the abstract images of an immigrant deeply rooted in xenophobic discourses.

  • The Role of Spirituality In Life Writing: Elisabeth Elliot's No
           Graven Image

    • Authors: Mareike Zapp
      Abstract: This article explores the role of form, fiction, and faith in the formulation of the self in the life writing of U.S.-American writer and missionary Elisabeth Elliot. Her novel No Graven Image (1966) depicts the experiences of an unmarried female missionary who encounters personal and professional difficulties in Ecuador. Parallels between the novel’s content and Elliot’s past experiences as recorded in her journals and her memoir These Strange Ashes (1975) raise the question whether the fictional genre can fulfill an autobiographical function. In this regard, the article investigates the influence of the writer’s present circumstances on the writing process and asks whether Elliot’s writer’s block, which she outlines in her journal, plays into the composition and language of the novel. The literary examination reveals the impact of Elliot’s faith in negotiating her self in different genres.

  • Black Protest on the Streets: Visual Activism and the Aesthetic Politics
           of Black Lives Matter

    • Authors: Nicole Anna Schneider
      Abstract: Reading the practices of visual activism and protest of the Black Lives Matter movement against Rancière’s concept of aesthetics as the ‘distribution of the sensible,’ Sharpe’s idea of diasporic blackness as ‘being in the wake,’ and Wynter’s concepts of being human as a praxis, this article seeks to establish the aesthetic politics of the movement.

  • “Perceptions and Their Mutability” in Siri Hustvedt’s
           Works

    • Authors: Diana Wagner
      Abstract: Siri Hustvedt’s both fictional and non-fictional works recurrently thematize “the complex workings of human perception” (The Blazing World 1). How do we see? How do we “perceive the out there” (Mysteries xvii)? What role do expectations, memory, and language play in the formation of visual perception? How do we judge art and “how [do] unconscious ideas about gender, race, and celebrity influence a viewer’s understanding” of it (The Blazing World 1)? These questions are at the heart of Hustvedt’s oeuvre and closely connected to her theories of visuality and perception. The central premise of my paper is, as the title already suggests, that perceptions, according to Hustvedt, are never fixed but shifting and “mutable.” I discuss perception in its connection to perspective, embodied self, and context. I argue that, as stated in Siri Hustvedt’s works, perception, first, changes with perspective and therefore is a subjective or rather intersubjective and dialogical concept, which allows the plurality of angles and ways to look at one and the same object, providing a more complete description and a better understanding of it; second, perception is always embodied, i.e., we experience the world through our bodies and embodied minds, shaped by our ideas, feelings, memories, past perceptions, etc., as well as the language and culture we are born into; ergo, perception is inevitably connected to the notion of embodied self; and third, perception very much depends on the context and therefore changes with it as well. This paper seeks to delineate Hustvedt’s argument based on her interdisciplinary essays and supported by the examples from her fiction. At the same time, the tracing of the mechanisms involved in perception will provide an insight into the novels’ narrative unraveling and a key to understanding Hustvedt’s characters.

  • 'Extreme Forms of Aging:' The Case of Sam Berns

    • Authors: Julia Velten
      Abstract: By discussing the aging disorder progeria as depicted in the HBO documentary Life According to Sam, this paper argues that extraordinary forms of aging allow us to gain new insights into the cultural construction of age. The paper explores the ways in which age is culturally constructed through physical and behavioral aspects. The condition of progeria, puts individuals in between these categories, providing an angle to look at the way subcategories of age influence a person’s perception about age and aging in a given social context. Moreover, the essay connects methods from age studies as well as disability studies and suggests a dialogue between the two fields. Progeria, causing the body to age at a tremendously accelerated rate, serves as a suitable point of inquiry. On the one hand, it is an aging disorder at the junction between disability and age while, on the other, it challenges normative assumptions of age and aging by juxtaposing different subcategories of age within a single individual.

  • Reading Time Travel in Octavia E. Butler’s "Kindred" as
           Sankofa

    • Authors: Alena Cicholewski
      Abstract: This article shows how the Akan concept of Sankofa as healing through returning to the past is engaged in Octavia E. Butler’s novel Kindred. Based on selected close readings, I will discuss whether the science fiction element of time travel in the novel can be read as a literal representation of Sankofa.

  • The Struggle of Being Alive: Laboring Bodies in Paolo Bacigalupi’s
           The Windup Girl

    • Authors: Juliane Straetz
      Abstract: This essay reconsiders the Marxist question of how value is created through work and expressed within a lived experience of the body in a near-future setting that is characterized by an expanding impact of biotechnologies. To do so, I will read androids – organic, humanoid beings – as an allegory of the human laborer in a globalized capitalism. The object of my critical inquiry will be Paolo Bacigalupi’s novel The Windup Girl as it uncompromisingly draws the critical attention towards laboring conditions of laborers of the working class especially in the Global South. It does so by exemplifying social injustices by telling the stories of marginalized laborers. This essay focuses on the android Emiko – a former secretary who is forced to work as a prostitute. By examining her, I want to demonstrate that an analysis of laboring bodies – especially in an increasingly technologically inflicted world – is crucial to the study of living and working conditions since these determine whether we feel alive, autonomous, accepted, or lifeless, restricted, and devalued.

  • Seeds of a Future World: Science and Technology in the Digital Art of
           Elizabeth LaPensée

    • Authors: Kristina Baudemann
      Abstract: This article examines how the decolonial practice of digital artist Elizabeth LaPensée deals with colonial representations of science and technology. In colonial images, the ideological prejudice that Indigenous people belong in the past and are incapable of a future of higher sciences manifests itself in a pervasive visual language. The colonial imagery that pitches developed versus primitive technology is frequently reproduced in contemporary representations. Creating art that takes into account her Anishinaabe and Métis worldviews, LaPensée challenges these racist notions and dismantles the colonial structures at their roots. This article reads LaPensée’s digital works alongside the artist’s own comments as depictions of Indigenous scientific literacies that do not rely on colonial symbolism. By telling stories about sustainable futures with a recurrent imagery, LaPensée offers viewers a representational, anti-colonial language with which these futures can be imagined.

  • Disenfranchised Mothers and Maternity Insurance – Tracing Progressive
           Arguments in Ernest Hemingway’s Short Stories

    • Authors: Alina Schumacher
      Abstract: The Hemingway corpus has often been analysed towards its perceived focus on the masculine perspective and experience and has therefore taken its female characters as mere dependents and modifiers of this experience. While a number of critics have, in recent years, turned towards gender as a fruitful approach to Hemingway after all, the mother character especially has received very little scholarly attention still. In this essay I would like to explore parallels between Hemingway’s short stories “A Canary For One” and “Hills Like White Elephants” and contemporary progressive, reformist arguments by Olive Schreiner and Elsie Clews Parsons, which will allow me to temporarily exclude second-wave feminist approaches on these texts. I will investigate the relationship between mother characters and tropes of maternity in Hemingway’s short stories and the argumentative structures of contemporary progressive texts, aiming to illustrate that the parallels I will point out allow a more differentiated analysis of the motherhood trope within this selection of Hemingway’s short fiction. This essay contends that the mother character in “A Canary for One” and maternity as a concept in “Hills Like White Elephants” display a similar pre-progressive character and thereby appear as a fictionalisation of the circumstances out of which Schreiner and Parsons develop their progressive arguments towards female selfhood and individuality.
