At the turn of the twentieth century, modernity positioned itself as an unsettling force that changed traditional modes of communication, facilitated new forms of transportation, and transformed social experiences. Modernity also prompted technological advances that disrupted political/cultural boundaries through war, empire expansion, economic migration, and the like. Within her Empire, England's colonies felt the longing of emancipation through the rise of nationalist movements in Ireland and India. Eventually, these movements spread across Britain's African and Caribbean holdings, as well. The RMMLA English Literature since 1900 panel welcomes presentation proposals of no more than 250 words that explore any aspect of influence that decolonization

Academic Freedom and Academic Lives
The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.

Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.
Panel Topic: "'Writing' Wrongs: Notions of Justice and Civic Engagement in Multi-Ethnic American Literature"
