Since the discovery of oil in the 1970s, Gulf Cooperation Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) have employed a large expatriate labor force, primarily from neighboring South Asian Countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines. Recent studies claim that nearly 50.4% of the total population of the Gulf Cooperation Countries are expatriates. Such mass emigration has not only allowed for the rapid economic expansion of these Gulf countries, but at the same time they have produced a number of cultural and socio-economic consequences for the countries from where Gulf’s primary work forces originate.

A conference on nineteenth-century literature, art, and history to be held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of Haifa, co-sponsored by the University of California Dickens Project.

Nineteenth-century British culture was preoccupied with the paradigm of mapping across diverse areas of enterprise, including literature, popular culture, journalism, archeology, and art. Scholars have identified Victorian practices of mapping with the strategies of imperial planning and compartmentalization requisite for organizing a burgeoning empire, and for subsequent negotiations of shifting definitions of home.

Subtopics might include

Rewriting and Adapting Classical Women in the Italian Renaissance (RSA 2019)

Victoria Fanti
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 25, 2018

From compendia of “illustrious women” modelled on Boccaccio’s De mulieribus claris, to Machiavelli’s Lucrezia in the Mandragola, to Giambattista Gelli’s (male-driven) philosophical dialogue La Circe, women from the classical tradition are resurrected in many forms and to many ends over the course of the Italian Renaissance. This panel seeks to investigate how authors and intellectuals rewrote, revised, and (in some cases) reclaimed classical women in Renaissance Italian discourse and literature. 

Topics, authors, and questions that papers might address include, but are not limited to:

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

The blockbuster success of the 2017 film Wonder Woman reignited a global interest in the figure of the Amazon, eliciting celebrations of female strength and independence alongside debates about her exoticism and sexualization. A sequel, already highly anticipated by many, is slated for release in late 2019.

“Something must be said. Must be said that has not been and has been said before.” —Minh-ha Trinh, from Woman, Native, Other: Writing Postcolonialism and Feminism

Mainstream journalism and non-fiction reports on war and conflict often reinforce the same injustices they address, even when their goal is to critique human rights violations. On one hand, they can spectacularize suffering; on the other hand, they can de-emphasize individual suffering through “us versus them” rhetoric or distancing imagery, such as the US media’s focus on “shock and awe” tactics in the “war on terror.”

In today’s mass media landscape, reports of domestic tragedies, inexplicable violence, and familial collapse have become staples of the 24-hour news cycle. Meanwhile, television series like Game of Thrones (Il Trono di Spade) and soap operas like The Bold and the Beautiful (Beautiful) sensationalize transgressions like parricide, incest, and tyrannical impulses to massive global success.

World & Comparative Literature in an Anti-Humanities Age

updated: 
Monday, July 9, 2018 - 11:54am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Is World Literature the new, upgraded version of Comparative Literature (Comp Lit 2.0) or rather an attenuated, impoverished version of the latter? What unites us, and what divides us, especially considering that many World Lit faculty are drawn from Comp Lit backgrounds?  How do we, practitioners in these fields, rethink these disciplines for the era when humanities as such are under constant attack? In this session, we hope to discuss our shared ground and our shared challenges.  This roundtable is organized by the NeMLA World Literature Working Group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of World  Literature.
