Colored Bitches in a White Boy World: Innovative Others and Identity Aesthetics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The word on the street—if by street we mean ivory halls and indie lit blogs and cultural studies journals—is post-identity. We live in a post-identity politics world. Nor is this insistence grounded in naivete or delusional thinking. As some of the brightest contemporary thinkerstheorize us into post-identity, the experience of Othered bodies remains defiant, not by choice, not because we want to be separated as Other, but because it is impossible to uncoil the knots of positionality from interaction. This panel aims to look at identity politics in the microcosm of the indie lit world, drawing on the participants’ experience as writers, editors, publishers, and readers. What is the relationship between innovation and privilege? How does the already marginalized body push against the margins of literature through innovation? Does our positionality demand that identity politics play a central role in our aesthetic development? What does it mean to be a colored bitch in a white boy world?
