NeMLA Annual Convention - Washington D.C. - 21-24 March, 2019

In “Further Considerations on Afrofuturism”, Kodwo Eshun argued that the impact of the Middle Passage and slavery could still be felt in African American authorship today. The erasure of their African past, culture and heritage leaving them disconnected and made strangers, black writers look to the future as a way of dealing and engaging with the present. The term counterfutures is thus used to describe those writings that explore the potentiality of a dissonant life that emerges from these traumas, ones which reimagine the futures that the current path of human experience seems to lead to, as well as the pasts that have or might catalyze real or imagined futures.

American Postmemory: Slavery in Black and White / Deadline 9/30

Sunday, September 30, 2018

Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?

Comics and Magazines: An (Italian) Phenomenon

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Since its inception in 1908, the development of the comics medium in Italy has been marked by a profound symbiosis with magazines. Throughout the decades, the magazine as a container of cartoon strips and children’s stories (e.g. Corriere dei Piccoli) has evolved into different forms to cater to a broader and more varied readership. From the 1960s, family and adventure weeklies for children and adolescents (e.g. Il Giornalino, Intrepido, Lanciostory, etc.) coexisted with the so-called auteur comics magazines, which provided adults with both classic Anglo-Saxon comic strips and the latest comics stories by renowned Franco-Belgian, Argentinian, and Italian authors.

Presentist, Historical, and Unveiled Identities from Beowulf to the Eighteenth Century

This survey panel aims to establish dialogues between experts in early literatures. The confluence of epochs facilitates cross-historical discussion and provides a means for thinking about ways to teach early survey courses in university or college classrooms. This panel focuses on identities (racial, gendered, sexual, or mediatized, etc.). In recent years, scholars have labelled efforts to locate early forms of contemporary identity in early literature as presentist, an approach that tends to overlook differences between historical eras by prioritizing current concerns. However, are presentist methods actually flawed? And does any effort to trace earlier forms of current interests automatically constitute presentism?

Faking it. Forgery and Fabrication in Late Medieval and Early Modern Culture

Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 9:19am
The Early Modern Seminar, The University of Gothenburg
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 30, 2019

What is real and what is fake? And why does it matter? As soon as objects, texts and utterances (be they pragmatic or artistic) become imbued with a sense of authority or authenticity, there is a potential to produce other objects, texts and utterances which mimic and attempt to siphon off that authority and authenticity. In late medieval and early modern European culture (1400-1750), this potential was realized in new and unprecedented ways. Social, technological, and intellectual developments forever altered many activities which fall under the remit of forgery and fabrication, spurring lively debate about truth and falsity. The printing press transformed the production, distribution and marketing of texts and images.
