Call for Papers

In Stephen King’s Gothic (2011) John Sears asserts that rereading King represents ‘an exercise in the extension of repetition, in the act of rereading an oeuvre already deeply structured … by its own engagement in the Gothic habit of rereading … To reread King would be to enter … and perhaps to become lost within, a labyrinth of intra- and intertextual relations, an immense and complex textual space’ (2). Sears’s framing of King’s writing is a critical response to David Punter’s question about the susceptibility of King’s writing to rereading (1996).

Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University invites you to their biennial Conference, 12-15 June 2019.

Famines in Ireland before 1845 and after 1852

The Great Hunger of 1845 to 1852 has cast a long shadow over the subsequent history of Ireland and its diaspora. Since 1995, there has been a renewed interest in studying this event, by scholars, students, archeologists, artists, musicians, folklorists etc.  This interest shows no sign of abating. New research, methodologies and approaches have greatly added to our understanding of the causes, impact and legacies of this tragedy.

Lenin 2020 

Editors: Alla Ivanchikova and Robert Maclean 

Abstracts due: October 31, 2018 

This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?

In an episode of a British TV series Black Mirror called “Crocodile, set some time in a near future, memories, both human and nonhuman, become recordable and viewable on a simple, portable device. This unassuming gadget seals the future of the protagonist—a murderer—who, while eliminating all human witnesses to her crime, forgets the nonhuman witness, a guinea pig, whose memory the police is then able to view to promptly identify the suspect. In the 2017 Blade Runner, androids have childhood memories that they know to be fake, implanted by the manufacturer. In turn, cli fi and environmentalist writers inscribe elements, such as water, air, soil, or dust, as memory devices, creating nonhuman archives for posterity.

The ongoing comparison of the current administration to the Nixon administration calls for a reexamination of the scandal that brought down the latter. Befitting NeMLA’s conference location, this panel seeks to reexamine classic and contemporary depictions of Watergate in order to illuminate the scandal’s connections between literature, film and American politics and culture from the seventies to the present. Accordingly, this panel seeks readings of Watergate, past and present, as depicted in film, literature and culture. Readings can also reexamine Watergate as a moment in American cultural memory and its contemporary ramifications.

The global economic crises of the past twenty years have been accompanied by academic revaluations of Marx in economics and the social sciences, as well as a “return to Marx” in popular discourses concerned with economic justice and political activism. During this same period, however, literary studies has witnessed a turn away from Marxist historicism and ideology critique toward “post-critical” methodologies that emphasize weak theories over strong theories, textual surfaces over historical depths, description over suspicion.
