Abstract: »How unsurprising it should be, then, to discover that #MeToo emerged in part out of literature itself, as Janet Badia details in our opening essay. And yet #MeToo is already making its mark on how we recognize, theorize, and respond to these themes and critiques, with the potential to, as Badia writes, "disrupt more than just male privilege"-to disrupt literary tradition and history, canon, narrative theory, pedagogical practices, notions of gender, race, ethnicity, and nationality, media studies, and even mainstays of interpretive practice such as the intentional fallacy.« (Source: Hewett, Heather, et al.»Introduction: Literary Studies as Literary Activism.« #MeToo and Literary Studies: Reading, Writing, and Teaching about Sexual Violence and Rape Culture.
