Whatever Happened to Baby Cain?

Childhood Unbound, Childhood Tamed, Childhood Eternal

Growing up is a perennial feature of human societies. While anxieties surrounding childhood are universal, the manifestations of these concerns vary between cultures. This series of sessions proposes to shed light upon the nexus of ambiguity surrounding the medieval child, as depicted in contemporaneous literature. We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topic may include, but are not limited to:

This CFP is for a seminar session at the 2020 NeMLA Convention. The convention will be held March 5-8, 2020, at the Marriott Copley Place, Boston.

The Power and Limits of Narrative in Opposing Injustice

Literature, film, and other forums for bearing witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations. As such, narratives of witness have the power to connect people across divisions of nation, culture, and experience. They may contribute to shared national and even transnational identities.

Complicity [ACLA 2020]

In recent years, subtle discussions of beneficiaries (Bruce Robbins), bystanders (Robert Meister), spectators (Luc Boltanski), and implicated subjects (Michael Rothberg) have drawn attention to the political, ethical, and aesthetic imperatives emanating from occupying positions of complicity in structures propped up by historical injustice. While much of this scholarship zeroes in on atrocities and events of historical significance, Robbins and Meister, at least, also wedge open space for considering complicity at the level of everyday life. What does it mean for someone to feel depressed by diagnosis of climate catastrophe? To feel overwhelmed by capitalism? To desire escape routes in the face of resurgent racist nationalisms around the world?

Routledge Companion to Masculinity in American Literature and Culture

Masculinity—that hard to define notion of “being a man” or “acting like a man”—is largely understood through cultural expectations and images of masculine performance. Masculinity can seem nebulous, but literary and popular cultural representations of the idea help to solidify it both as a concept and as an identity. Westerns, noir, thrillers, war narratives, working class narratives, and even apocalyptic films and novels have shaped our definitions not only of what it means to be a man, or to be masculine, but indeed what it means to be American.

“A thing is when it isn’t doing”, writes Brian Massumi in Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation (2002: 6). But the thing is always doing, so much so that the thing, any-thing, is constituted through the doing. Every-thing is fundamentally relational. Given this starting point, the key terms of the onto-politico-aesthetic debate change; they are: affect, immanence, movement, intensity, emergence, becoming, event, virtual, nature-culture, space-time.

NeMLA 2020 Seminar

Boston, March 5-8, 2020

This seminar seeks to explore the current engagements with "New Sincerity" in literature from Central and Eastern Europe. It expands the geographic borders of discourses on "New Sincerity" by moving beyond the North American and post-Soviet contexts. It also aims to examine the changes to the "New Sincerity" aesthetic in an age of "post-truth" and more than two decades after David Foster Wallace’s call for writers who are "too sincere."

Cities, as entry points and destinations for migrants, have long been represented culturally as places of vibrant interaction, struggles for assimilation, housing and employment exclusion, and dangerous infiltration. For instance, the official city celebrations of the diverse immigrant populations who have shaped and re-shaped the cityscape can lead to cultural amnesia or ignorance of the conditions that created neighborhoods like New York’s Harlem, San Francisco’s Castro, or London’s Spitalfields.
