Stetz speaks conferenceStetz speaks conference6/10/2022 4:00:00 AM<p>​<strong>Margaret Stetz</strong>, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women’s Studies and professor of humanities, was an invited speaker at a multinational, interdisciplinary conference on the subject of Asian military sexual slavery during World War II that was held virtually on May 20-21, 2022. The conference, “A New Outlook to the Atrocities: ‘Comfort Women’ and What Remains,” was sponsored jointly by the University of Baltimore’s School of Public and International Affairs and the Academy of Korean Studies, Republic of Korea. Her talk, titled “New Genres, New Audiences: Retelling the Story of Japan’s Military Sexual Slavery,” surveyed several recently published works — including ones that take the form of speculative fiction, graphic narrative and poetry — that are especially effective as pedagogical tools in university classrooms. It ended with a short reading of three of her own poems on the topic of “comfort women” issues, which she has used in her undergraduate teaching on sexual violence. The talk is available on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vk6qWbC69E">YouTube</a> as part of the first day of conference presentations.​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87;L0|#0d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87|Presentations;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=185

Stetz and Lasner speak at the Rosenbach Museum and LibraryStetz and Lasner speak at the Rosenbach Museum and Library4/29/2022 4:00:00 AM<p>​Following their formal lectures about Aubrey Beardsley on March 30, 2022, at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia, <strong>Margaret Stetz</strong> and <strong>Mark Samuels Lasner</strong> were invited to deliver informal presentations about Beardsley and the Decadent movement of the 1890s for the Rosenbach's April 22, 2022, "Decadent Bibliococktails" evening. Stetz, who is Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women's Studies and professor of humanities, gave an introduction to the connections between alcohol and the Decadents (including the surprising discussion of champagne amid the courtroom drama of the Oscar Wilde trials of 1895) and concluded with a reading of her new poem, written for the occasion, titled "Drinking with Decadents." Samuels Lasner, who is senior research fellow, University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press, recounted the narrative of how, while doing research for a 1994  exhibition curated with Stetz for Harvard University's Houghton Library, he located an important drawing by Aubrey Beardsley of Henry Harland, editor of the <em>Yellow Book</em> magazine, that had been lost to scholars for nearly 100 years.​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87;L0|#0d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87|Presentations;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=172
Stetz speaks at Rosenbach Museum and LibraryStetz speaks at Rosenbach Museum and Library4/8/2022 4:00:00 AM<p><strong>Margaret Stetz</strong>, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women's Studies and professor of humanities, and Mark Samuels Lasner, senior research fellow at the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press, were the invited speakers on March 30, 2022, at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia. Their evening of back-to-back illustrated lectures, titled "The Decadent Aubrey Beardsley," was the Rosenbach's first in-person event in more than two years. Stetz's talk, "In Bed with Aubrey Beardsley," examined the 1890s British artist and writer's daring representations of gender and sexuality, especially in his self-portraits and in his unfinished novel, <em>Under the Hill</em>. Samuels Lasner's talk, "The Doctor and the Decadent: Beardsley at the Rosenbach," explored how and why the bookseller A. S. W. Rosenbach's collection came to include important work by Beardsley, such as the manuscript of <em>Under the Hill</em>, as well as the history of how other Beardsley items joined the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection at the University of Delaware.​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87;L0|#0d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87|Presentations;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=165

The current issue of <em>Azure: A Journal of Literary Thought</em> (Volume 6: 1) contains her poem "<em><a href="https://www.lazuliliterarygroup.com/the-depths-of-the-sea-by-margaret-d-stetz.html">The Depths of the Sea (1887) by Edward Burne-Jones"</a></em>--a commentary on Pre-Raphaelite painting, as well as on the Victorian fashion for women of wearing animal parts, including beetle-wing dresses and hats trimmed with taxidermied birds.​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b;L0|#0e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b|Publications;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=166
Stetz publishes poetryStetz publishes poetry2/18/2022 5:00:00 AM<p><strong>​Margaret Stetz</strong>, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women's Studies and professor of humanities, continues to publish poetry that grows out of her scholarship. The "Letters One" issue (Spring 2022) of <em>The Library Love Letter</em> journal contains her poem, <a href="https://libraryloveletter.com/letters/lettersone/museum-education/">"Museum Education"</a>--an ironic look at a display of personal items in an exhibition about the life of Lord Byron, the poet. The Fall/Winter  2021-22 issue (Vol. 41, No. 1, pp. 68-69) of<em> Existere: Journal of Art & Literature</em>, which is published by York University in Canada, presents her poem "Looking for Lucy"—a reimagining of Virginia Woolf's 1925 novel, <em>Mrs. Dalloway</em>, that highlights the importance of the largely overlooked figure of the working-class maid, known only as "Lucy." The January 2022 issue (No. 19) of<em> MER Vox, </em>a journal devoted to the subject of motherhood, offers her poem, <a href="https://momeggreview.com/2022/01/13/margaret-d-stetz-whistlers-mother/">"Whistler's Mother,"</a> which tries to view the iconic painting  <em>Arrangement in Grey and Black </em>from the perspective of its subject. The Fall 2021 (No. 5, p.12) special issue of <em>The Adriatic</em>, which is dedicated to science fiction, includes her tribute to a pioneering Afrofuturist writer, “For Octavia Butler (1947-2006)."​​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b;L0|#0e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b|Publications;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=153

On Jan. 6, <strong>Margaret Stetz</strong>, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women’s Studies and professor of humanities, spoke at the session on “The International Morris: The Morris Circle and the World.” Her paper, titled “Moncure Daniel Conway Goes East,” described Morris’s influence on Conway, an American-born abolitionist and radical thinker, especially in terms of the links between Morris’s <em>News from Nowhere</em> and the latter’s <em>My Pilgrimage to the Wise Men of the East</em>, a 1906 Asian travel narrative. ​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87;L0|#0d586cffd-ad4b-45b9-8581-f6a2bbf70d87|Presentations;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://publish.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=145
