      Abstract: Now in its fourteenth year, Reception presents its readers with the journal’s fourth special-topics issue. For 2021, however, the journal offers a different orientation by focusing a retrospective lens on the field of reader studies. Specifically, the core of this issue consists of essays that examine the significance, contributions, and legacy of Judith Fetterley’s groundbreaking 1978 book The Resisting Reader: A Feminist Approach to American Fiction.Guest edited by Yung-Hsing Wu, Professor of English at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, and Reception’s book-review editor, the issue includes articles by those who encountered the book in its early days as well as by a second generation of scholars and critics ...

  • Revising, Rereading: The Resisting Reader and its afterlives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Sigmund Freud proposed that identification was crucial to the emotional life of the ego as early as The Interpretation of Dreams. Expressions of emotional ties with other people, what Freud called identification, have increasingly become the fabric of contemporary being. Facebook likes and retweets on Twitter not only express such ties but also multiply them at a rapid pace. While these ties may strike some as superficial and minimal, it is also the case that both platforms have made their political mark precisely through their grounding in such expressions and their multiplication. Indeed I would point to the #MeToo movement for indexing a shift in U.S. cultural politics in which identification is a pointed and ... Read More

  • The Historical Context of Judith Fetterley’s The Resisting Reader: A
           Feminist Approach to American Fiction 1968–1978

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1978, Judith Fetterley’s powerful and persuasive book, The Resisting Reader: A Feminist Approach to American Fiction, was published by Indiana University Press. Having been deeply engaged as a second wave feminist scholar for the previous decade, I was delighted that Fetterley’s book continued, condensed, and crystallized the feminist analysis of literature and culture that had emerged during the previous turbulent decade of feminist politics, debate, and scholarship. Building on this decade of discovery and accomplishment, The Resisting Reader provided a crucial framework for scholars, teachers, and students to understand the deep masculinist structure of American literature, built on a foundation of axiomatic ...

  • Reading for Self-Defense

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Resisting Reader begins with a simple declarative sentence about its genesis: “This book began in the classroom.”1 Judith Fetterley starts from a site often cast aside in the history of literary study, despite the fact that the classroom, long feminized, was and remains a pivotal place for the making of literary knowledge.2 To elaborate on this context of the book’s production, Fetterley offers a brief history of her project and those who have supported it. Her class took place at the University of Pennsylvania in fall 1971 where she established with her students a pedagogy that turned unidirectional hierarchy into a horizontal circuit. Fetterley asked for her students’ reading notebooks and they asked for hers ... Read More

  • The Reception of The Resisting Reader, Early and Late

      Abstract: Judith Fetterley’s The Resisting Reader has garnered extraordinary influence, crossing disiplinary and national boundaries to achieve a wide, continuing impact matched by few works of modern literary criticism. On its publication in 1978, the book was “highly recommended” to libraries,1 then quickly contributed to American literature studies and feminist criticism. Recognized as “a book of great value for classroom teachers,”2 it was also hailed as representing the commitment to social change in feminist literary criticism, beyond the aim of individual professional advancement.3 Although reading studies came more slowly to The Resisting Reader, feminist scholars in the field later recognized Fetterley’s theory as ...

  • The Power of the Resisting Reader

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At its best, feminist criticism is a political act whose aim is not simply to interpret the world but to change it by changing the consciousness of those who read and their relation to what they read.Looking back at Judith Fetterley’s The Resisting Reader after some four decades, what strikes me immediately is the centrality of “power” to its argument and the way this critique of power leads to an unmasking of what she terms “immasculation”: the process by which, as “readers and teachers and scholars, women are taught to think as men, to identify with a male point of view, and to accept as normal and legitimate a male system of values, one of whose central principles is misogyny” (xx). This exploration of power ... Read More

      Abstract: I first met Judith Fetterley in 1973, in a seminar classroom at the University at Albany (SUNY), where faculty new to the English Department were invited for an orientation session on the teaching of composition courses. Among the several striking figures around the table that day, Judy still stood out. She wore what was pretty much her uniform in those days: blue jeans, sturdy shoes, and a navy-blue sweatshirt. Her red hair was cut short, and she wore no make-up, no jewelry.Yes, Judy is the kind of person you notice. She is unselfconscious about the space she takes up at a table or in a room. She likes to spread out and is not small and tidy about her gestures. She speaks loudly, as if her listeners might be just ... Read More

  • Still Resisting after All These Years

      Abstract: On a shelf in an office I am not allowed to enter due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a dog-eared, marked up, post-it noted copy of The Resisting Reader: A Feminist Approach to American Literature, purchased in 1978 or 1979, soon after it was published, and read and reread, taught and retaught many times. I do not need that particular copy in front of me to remember that I circled, in wide loops, its three-word first sentence: “Literature is political” (xi). If I recall correctly, there is at least one exclamation mark in the margin beside that sentence and many more all down the pages, cover to cover. “The posture of the apolitical,” Judith Fetterley writes a few sentences later, “the pretense that literature ...

  • The Transitioning Reader: A Journey

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In my copy of The Resisting Reader, the introduction and the chapter “The Bostonians” are both heavily underlined. My files of musty teaching notes, recently rescued from the basement, remind me how much The Resisting Reader meant to me as I struggled to undo the critical methodologies I had been taught in graduate school. In the pre-Internet 1980s and early 90s I xeroxed the quotations Fetterley prints at the onset of the Bostonians chapter and gave them to students to analyze–“go around the room,” my notes instruct me, “asking each person to identify the writer’s ideological position.” When I look at those quotations today, I shudder at their naked misogyny and homophobia. We have come a long way from 1978, when ... Read More

  • Fetterley’s Feminist Blueprint for Resisting Scholars

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Judith Fetterley’s first-sentence declaration “Literature is political” was a clarion call for feminist literary scholars to take bolder steps in thought and praxis. Directly and indirectly, Fetterley influenced interpretative approaches to American literature and foregrounded a feminist hermeneutics of suspicion that changed the reading practices of professors and their students in literary studies.1 I mean no exaggeration when I declare I was never the same student after reading Fetterley’s 1978 monograph, The Resisting Reader: A Feminist Approach to American Fiction, as a graduate student in the PhD program in English at the University of Wisconsin at Madison in the 1980s. Though Fetterley did not analyze ... Read More

  • Immasculation in the Language Uses of Science and Philosophy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A key thought in Judith Fetterley’s The Resisting Reader is her neologism immasculation.1 The term refers to a process of unconscious inculcation: when all the sources we read, the critics we study, and the teachers we meet are men, everyone learns to “think like a man,” unaware that our minds have been, so to speak, occupied by male-coded (“man-made”) language, or, in my Orwellian variation, by “manspeak.” Because the term referred to the effects of both literature and language usage, the book has appeared on my courses’ reading lists since it was published. Referring to descriptions of women’s education by several colleagues, Fetterley wrote that “American literature is male” (xii). The value of her descriptive ... Read More

  • Reading an Other

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Resisting Reader came on the scene at the beginning of my professional career. Then, in 1978, I was a first-year assistant professor at the University of New Hampshire. I was hired as a specialist in feminist theory, but truth be told, I came to the job with dubious credentials. I was trained in criticism and theory (literary history, New Criticism, the Chicago School, Marxist theory, and the emerging structuralism and post-structuralism), but my graduate program did not offer any course on feminist criticism. At that time the big debate was whether or not there was or even could be such a coherent and definable critical approach. Like other feminist scholars of my generation, I was self-taught in feminist ... Read More

  • The Desisting Reader

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Resisting Reader holds landmark status in second-wave feminism, joining other notable monographs such as Annette Kolodny’s The Lay of the Land (1975), Patricia Meyer Spacks’ The Female Imagination (1975), Elaine Showalter’s A Literature of Their Own (1978), and Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar’s The Madwoman in the Attic (1979), as feminist criticism infiltrated the academy. The institutionalization of feminist literary scholarship has been documented–and closely read–by Jane Gallop in Around 1981. Charting the rising tide of academic feminism through the publication of several edited collections, whose aggregation marks a cresting for feminist literary work, Gallop delineates three key debates that characterize ...

  • Re-reading Noir: American Women’s Cold-War Crime Fiction and The
           Resisting Reader

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: American literature is male. To read the canon of what is currently considered classic American literature is perforce to identify as male.Clearly, then, the first act of the feminist critic must be to become a resisting reader rather than an assenting reader and, by this refusal to assent, to begin the process of exorcising the male mind that has been implanted in us.I am currently working on a book project called “Feminine Noir' American Women’s Crime Fiction of the Cold War.” It takes a reception studies approach to the work of a generation of American women crime/thriller writers who established themselves from the 1940s to the 1960s who—until recently— were absent from literary history.2 I struggled in the ...

      Abstract: As I reached out to colleagues whose voices I hoped to see included in this volume, I remembered as well my wonderful editor at Indiana University Press, Susan Fernandez. Though I had lost contact with Susan over the years, I had high hopes for re-connecting. I searched for her on the Internet only to discover her obituary. I want, therefore, to dedicate this brief reflection on the book we created together to Susan, who taught me more about writing through her judicious line-editing than anyone before or after. She accepted the book for publication, she believed in the book, and she gave it its name. Thank you, Susan.In the spring of 1971, I attended my first consciousness-raising session. Like so many women of my ... Read More

      Abstract: Since the Amazon.com boom, book selling and book reviewing have increasingly moved online. Major book reviewing venues, such as the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Sun-Times, have reduced book reviewing staff or eliminated book review sections altogether. But as the opportunities for professional book reviewers shrink, book blogs and reader-review venues, including Amazon.com and Goodreads, have created new opportunities for readers to share opinions with a wide audience and create new online spaces for book lovers to join together. Yet, a book review in The New York Times and other traditional review publications is still essential to the promotion and success of a book.Within this context, Phillipa Chong’s ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Gaming Sexism: Gender and Identity in the Era of Casual Video Games, Amanda C. Cote offers a detailed examination of how women who play video games see themselves and the gaming landscape during the decade following the launch of the Nintendo Wii in 2006. This period, marked largely by Nintendo’s “Blue Ocean Strategy” of making games for underserved markets, saw a significant increase in the volume of so-called casual games released for an audience often seen as removed from the industry’s central market demographic. Throughout the book, Cote draws on a detailed analysis of gaming-related press and a rich body of research interviews to consider what these industry changes mean for women’s position in and ...

  • The American Politics of French Theory: Derrida, Deleuze, Guattari, and
           Foucault in Translation by Jason Demers (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jason Demers’ new book does not examine French theory in terms of theoretical movements like structuralism or poststructuralism. Demers does not believe in explaining the concepts of theories because such explanations assume that theory occupies its own realm; rather, Demers explains the political contexts in which French theory and theorists are involved. As he says, “[T]o label and ultimately understand the work of thinkers such as Deleuze and Guattari, Derrida or Foucault under the rubric of ‘poststructuralism’ or ‘French theory’ severs them from the associations that characterize their thought” (6). Demers considers this theoretical approach metaphorical because it requires the selection of a term that ... Read More

      Abstract: Like the great myths told as a multitude of variants across cultural contexts, a star who shines as brightly as Johnny Cash prompts investigations at paradoxical poles of human experience–the expanse of a phenomenon spread worldwide vis-à-vis localized, individual experiences of that phenomenon. In Johnny Cash International: How and Why Fans Love the Man in Black, Michael Hinds and Jonathan Silverman attend to this paradox:In practice, [international] Cash fandom paradoxically intensifies a sense of place. As fans respond powerfully to the imaginary geography of Cash’s songs and the actual geography of his life, they also express a strong sense of relationship, if not affiliation, to their home locality.Framed by ...

      Abstract: In “Ebony” Magazine and Lerone Bennett Jr., James E. West analyzes the contributions Ebony and Bennett made to propagating Black history during the second half of the twentieth century. In narrating the history of Ebony and Bennet’s contribution to the magazine, West chronicles the evolution of Black history in the twentieth century, which can be categorized through several periods–the emphasis on racial uplift and Black achievement in the 1940s and 1950s; the connection of past protest movements to the civil rights and Black Power movements in the 1960s; the mainstream commercialization and inclusion of Black history in the 1970s; and the reinvention of protest narratives, particularly the civil rights movement of ...
