Defying Belief, Reinforcing Stereotypes, and Taking the Mickey: Conference Paper and Article Titles

by Anna Blanch on February 26, 2010

I’m still on a paper/article/conference abstract writing kick. I’ve come up with two of the three paper titles I need but I was so into it, here’s a stack more!

  1. E.Nesbit, Railway Children, and The Savage: Negating Fictive Desire
  2. The Paralogical Negating The Oppressed: E.Nesbit, Railway Children and Homosociality
  3. Norming, (Re)reading, Processing: Corporeality in E.Nesbit and the Seductive Borderlines of Epistemology in Railway Children
  4. Deconstructing Postmodernity: Psychoanalytic Ethos in E.Nesbit’s Railway Children
  5. The Misogynistic Processing The Marginalized: E.Nesbit, Railway Children and Dis-ease

So i’m kidding.

I thought I should say that before some of you get excited and others start yelling at me. I didn’t come up with any of these…

Ok, so i found another Title Generator…this one is actually the most relevant of them all. Apparently the above are 5 means by which you might destabilize, decenter, deconstruct, or otherwise devalue that book.
Here’s 5 more:

  1. The Psychoanalytic Savaging The Oppressed: E.Nesbit, Railway Children and Tyranny
  2. Religion as Epistemology: Historicizing Transformational Intercourse in E.Nesbit’s Railway Children
  3. The Blind Engendering The Alien: E.Nesbit, Railway Children and Politics
  4. Desire and Autobiography in Railway Children: E.Nesbit Politicizing Blind Frustration
  5. Patriarchal Advocacy and the Negation of Savage Boundaries in E.Nesbit’s Railway Children

If you want to check it out yourself, why don’t you try it:
The Amazing and Incredible, Only-Slightly-laughable, Politically unassailable, PoMo English title generator

Suprisingly there are probably two out of the ten that i might be able to do something with, though not without some alteration! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a little humour in my day!

PS: Storm is still howling, though it’s more rain than sleet/hail now. I guess that’s what i get for living in Scotland!
