NEMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The urgency to understand the transformations in the capitalist world system since the 1970s and describe its volatile processes of expansion has spawned a few creative attempts at periodization: Eric Hobsbawm’s “Landslide” (1994), Robert Brenner’s “The Long Downturn” (2006), Immanuel Wallerstein’s “Managed Decline” (2006), and Judith Stein’s “Age of Inequality” (2010) to name only a few. While economists and historians may disagree about the sources of crisis, from Harvey’s over-accumulation thesis to Brenner’s over-production and over-competition, there remains little doubt that the 1970s proved to be a “pivotal decade” and that we are now living with the consequences.

Conference English Literature in the World: From Manuscript to Digital

English Literature has been able to reinvent itself along new pathways, from the age of the manuscript to the digital era. In the last decades, the digital technology has changed the paradigms involving both the reading strategies and the analysis of literary texts: among others, the relation between writer and reader; the publication in digital platforms; “distant reading”; the exploration of the image; the abundance of information; the access to the original texts. This enormous change has originated an interdisciplinary reevaluation of many of the previous paths, as well as the launching of new focuses of reflection.

ACLA 2018: Stepping Off the End

Anne McConnell
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

In the Afterword to “Canicula di Anna” in Plainwater, Anne Carson asks the reader, “what is so terrible about stepping off the end of a story?” (88). “Stepping off the end of a story” might mean a variety of things; in this context, Carson points to a textual moment, the end, and our unwillingness to let it arrive and therefore accept our outsidership. We seek the end, the closure to the story, at the same time that we put it off, lingering along the edges of the cliff, knowing that the end means we will be cast out, dislocated at the moment of completion. We might seek other ways to fill the silence that follows the story, finding a means to perpetuate the story beyond its seeming departure: “Because you would always like to know a little more.

1st Global Conference
The Changing Faces of Evil

including a guided tour of historic sites from the 1755 Earthquake and Tsunami and the ‘Easter Slaughter’ of 1506

Saturday 17th March 2018 - Sunday 18th March 2018
Lisbon, Portugal

As we head deeper into the 21st Century, what does it mean to call someone or something ‘evil’? Previously used to describe natural disasters such as the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 or even pandemics such as the Black Death, evil is now used as a popular term by the press and social media to refer to various acts of hatred, violence, terror, brutality and senseless killing.
