Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 2, 2017

Themes of waste and waste management circulate in contemporary literature as demonstrated in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the scatological poetry of A.R. Ammons, the collages of James Schuyler and Rachel Blau DuPlessis, and the language middens of Caroline Bergvall’s Drift. Collections like Jennifer Scappettone’s The Republic of Exit 43 also highlight the shared architecture of landfills and human bodies connected by waste, built environments, and literary corpuses. The purpose of the seminar is then twofold. First, this seminar invites participants to explore art, film, and literature through the lens of waste, waste management, and toxic materialism.

Ecocriticism in the 21st Century (NeMLA)

Saturday, September 30, 2017

The proposal H.R. 861, a bill recently introduced to terminate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, prompts us to address the directions of ecocritical discourse in order to attend to the current material-specific, aesthetic, and rhetorical renderings of changing landscapes on a warming planet. What kind of citizenry is possible in environments overflowing with toxic waste? How do fossil fuels shape the imaginaries of urban and rural ecologies? What are the limits and possibilities of forensic and material analyses to shed light on catastrophic degradations of the environment without recuperating or fabricating disgust?

Queer Oceans Panel

NeMLA Convention 2018 Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel, titled Queer Oceans, seeks abstracts for papers that explore the ocean in relation to queer studies. The sea has frequently been idealized as a place for escaping the norms that bind life on land. From sodomitic pirates to the famous spermaceti scene in Moby-Dick, the sea often emerges in suggestively queer contexts. However, discussions of these queer possibilities rarely take into account the nautical setting in which they occur.

In his recent work On Literary Worlds (2012), Eric Hayot examines how literature—through narration—gives shape and substance to worlds and ways of being in them. Literary worlds, Hayot argues,“[are] the diegetic totality constituted by the sum of all aspects of a single work, constellated into a structure or system that amounts to a whole” (44) and “they are always social and conceptual constructs, as well as formal and affective ones” (45).

How to Make a Minority: Nationalism and Identity in the Postcolonial World

updated: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:47pm
Maryam Wasif Khan/ ACLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

While much of the Anglophone world remains transfixed on the rise of the majoritarian right in the United States and Britain, little attention is paid to the nationalist politics that have defined daily existence in states such as Pakistan and India, or Egypt, Turkey and parts of the Middle East through the dialectic of minoritization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This panel is interested in the cultural apparatus—literature, media, museums etc.—that has become indispensable in the making of national identities in the postcolonial state. What are the systems of “social reference,” to use Edward Said’s phrase, that enable the construction of a volk, of the people who constitute the nation?
