Exquisite Corpse: Studio Art-Based Writing Practices in the Academy
Read M.P. Nolan's new book chapter in Exquisite Corpse:
Out of the 1920s Surrealist art studios emerged the exquisite corpse, a collaboratively drawn body made whole through a series of disjointed parts whose relevance today is the subject of Exquisite Corpse: Studio Art-Based Writing in the Academy. This collection draws from the processes and pedagogies of artists and designers to reconcile disparate discourses in rhetoric and composition pertaining to 3Ms (multimodal, multimedia, multigenre), multiliteracies, translingualism, and electracy. With contributions from a diverse range of scholars, artists, and designers, the chapters in this collection expand the conversation to a broader notion of writing and composing in the 21st century that builds upon traditional notions of composing but also embraces newer and nontraditional forms.

M.P. Nolan's presented a book chapter slated for publication in Palgrave's upcoming Detection across Borders at the (Neo-)Victorian Orientations in the Twenty First Century Conference in Malaga, Spain.
The essay analyses the evolution of perceptions of social mobility in the form of interaction among various classes outside of the domestic setting for contemporary versions of Victorian women in relation to those characterisations of the day through the common tropes of birthright (and its associated guilt), charity and marriage. Detective fiction is the perfect vehicle for this enquiry, because as Catherine Nickerson asserts in “Murder as Social Criticism,” “the genre is deeply enmeshed with most of the thornier problems of the Victorian, modern, and postmodern eras, including gender roles and privileges, racial prejudice and the formation of racial consciousness, the significance and morality of wealth and capital, and the conflicting demands of privacy and social control” (744). Thus, more specifically, this chapter uses texts on gender, etiquette and feminism to examine and compare portrayals of women’s social mobility from actual Victorian mysteries
