>
>This proposed special session of the 2004 MLA will examine literary and
>other cultural nationalist strategies that stigmatize political opposition
>as "red."  Papers should explore cultural deployments of this strategy,
>examining in detail the complex ways that racial, sexual, and/or  class-
>based identities in the U.S. are constructed against and through red
>rhetoric. The panel might not only address red rhetoric as stigma, but also
>the extent to which being "red" has been or can be claimed and
>celebrated as resistance. Additionally, papers are welcome that trace the
>changing nature of red rhetoric and/or responses to it from the 1930ís to
>the 1950ís to today.
