English Brown Bag Lecture Series

Location: Campus Center, Room 306

The English Brown Bag lecture series hosts discussions on writing and literature. Jennifer Orme, PhD, will discuss some of the ways feminist, lesbian/gay, and queer approaches are distinct from each other and demonstrate their relations and differences through three close readings of one Cinderella revision: Babette Cole’s 1987 picture book, Prince Cinders. The first reading sees the book as a response to the feminist fairy-tale debates that were happening at the time of its publication. The second takes a lesbian/gay literary critical position that grows out of feminist concerns and examines assumptions about the relationships between gender and sexual identity and the coding of homosexuality in the text. The third interpretation proposes a queer reading that focuses less on character representation and more upon the destabilizing potential of internal textual contradictions that adhere to the ostensible aims of the book itself.
