 Time, Space, and Epistemic Violence in Hemispheric American Literature

This panel seeks papers that explore the depiction of time and space in hemispheric American Literature and the ways in which traditional conceptualizations may be read as a form of epistemic violence. How do the depictions of physical spaces in works from the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States interact with complex configurations of time as progressive, circular, or even anti-linear and irregular—narrative time as composed of a randomized trail of apexes and abysses? How does this literature address/redress/move beyond the concepts of time and space and the harm caused by the imposition of Western paradigms?

In keeping with the MMLA conference theme, “Arts and Activism,” the Religion and Literature permanent section welcomes proposals that address works and writers who explore the ways in which religion and activism intersect. Papers may ask questions such as (but not limited to): How do writers address the social and/or political forces that encourage either religious conversion or loss of faith? How do writers examine radical disbelief? What are the influences of religious conservatism on social movements? How do religious movements shape secular culture and vice versa? How do religious movements influence secular social and civil rights movements and vice versa? How do race, ethnicity, gender and/or sexuality influence religious activist movements?

Biographers have a strong impact on our perception of history. They offer narratives of the lives of political leaders that necessarily defend a thesis of one sort or another, whether they pretend to strive to comprehend how politicians’ individual characters have underpinned their political responses to particular crises, or present an overtly biased portrait of historical figures.

MLA 2018: Langston Hughes' "Let America Be America Again" Revisited

Wallis Baxter, Langston Hughes Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Modern Language Association (MLA) Convention will be held from January 4-7, 2018, in New York, NY. The Langston Hughes Society, as part of its continued commitment to honor the life and the legacy of Langston Hughes, will once again host a panel. Interested participants are encouraged to develop a proposal on the subject of "Let America Be America Again” Revisited. 

In the midst of the current sociopolitical climate and the Trump Era’s aim to “Make America Great Again,” it is important that we consider how Hughes speaks to the least, left out, and left behind within America. Specifically, how does Hughes engage the lower class, the immigrant, and the economically disadvantaged, and what insight does he offer in our current context?
