50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.

Free Will and the Subjective Agency of Women in Dante's Commedia

updated: 
Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 11:42am
NeMLA 2019, Washington DC
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Free Will, defined by Dante's Virgilio as the noble power to guide and constrain the soul's natural inclination and desires (Purg 18.73),  holds a place of central concern in the Commedia. Elaborating on Marco Lombardo's discourse, the roman poet asserts that it is Free Will that accounts for the justice in feeling joy for doing good and misery for doing ill. While offering a general outline of the fundamental importance of Free Will in the ethical and moral rationale for the fate of departed souls, the pilgrim's first guide promises that Beatrice will provide clarity on this and other topics of particular complexity beyond the purview of his Classical pagan understanding.

The Stage and the Comics Page: Graphic Adaptations of Plays, Theatrical Adaptations of Comics

Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 11:42am
Northeast MLA 2019, March 21-24
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers that explore adaptations from comics into theater, or from theater into comics. Whether comics adaptations of classic plays, or celebrated graphic narratives that get adapted for the musical stage, the interplay between the stage and the comics page is rich and multi-directional, as both are visual narratives, with very different points of access and methods of meaning-making. The ill-fated Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may not have much in common with a graphic novelization of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, for instance, but they share an attempt to grapple with the intersection of the two media.

Drugs and spices have long been at the center of global trade, but the concept of “drug” in its modern, Western sense is particularly derived from interactions with cultural “others.”  Thinkers such as Jacques Derrida have written on the ancient Pharmakon and its relationship to signification and sacrifice.

Stages and Ages: Challenges for Women in the Academy

Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 11:02am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Although much has changed in the academy in the last fifty years, many struggles related to gender and the “traditional notions” of the roles women fulfill and the roles men fulfill in the academy have remained strikingly rigid, to the detriment of individuals as well as to the collective institution. Women still bear a service burden disproportionate to that of their male colleagues, still struggle with childbearing and childrearing choices that men in the academy do not face in the same way, and still face sexism and sexual harassment that their male counterparts escape. For women of color, the burdens are magnified.

When invited to speak in “the Personal and the Political Panel" as a respondent at the New York University Institute of Humanities conference, Audre Lorde begins with indicating the arrogance of feminist theory to assume that black, third world, queer women would have nothing to contribute to the white , non-queer, privileged, first world discussion. When she uttered her now famous – so famous that one can order a t-shirt , a mug, various paraphernalia with this sentence on it- master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house, Audre Lorde is standing in the most controversial of places and times, confronting the very master in their own house.

Ronnie Ancona
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) has recently added Classics as a secondary area of inquiry under Comparative Literature.  Please consider submitting an abstract for a panel on Greco-Roman Myth in Literature and/or the Arts, which I will be chairing, for the 50th anniversary convention to be held in Washington DC March 21-24, 2019.

 

Since Classics is a new secondary area of inquiry for NeMLA, this session attempts to cast its net quite broadly. The intention is to appeal to classicists or others dealing with Greco-Roman literature, history, archaeology, and culture and its later reception for abstracts that will have wide appeal to the NeMLA audience.

From Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg” to Rosie Bradiotti’s “Vitruvian woman,” posthuman studies and feminist studies have both used images of the female body as tangible metaphors in order to disrupt and critique boundaries and binaries. This roundtable will explore 20th and 21st century literature that illuminates the entanglement and correspondence between posthuman and feminist discourses, specifically in the notion of the female or post-gender body.

Papers for this roundtable are invited to reflect the following questions through literary readings:
