This roundtable is organized by NeMLA world literature working group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of world literature. We invite world literature scholars and practitioners to take part in the meaningful dialogue on the term "world literature" and its relation to the fields of postcolonial and comparative literature, as well as to share their approaches to teaching specific courses or curriculum building. This year's theme is "major and minor works in world literature," but proposals on other topics are welcome as well.

Representations of war in literature and film are important tools in understanding and creating a social memory of it. This roundtable welcomes papers that explore American literature and film that grapple with the war on terror. Please send 250-word abstracts to the NeMLA CFP website.

During the turn of the 20th century, in 1910, a mass destruction of stray dogs took place in Istanbul. Tens of thousands of dogs were put on boats and left on the uninhabited island of Sivriada, one of the Princes Islands on the Marmara Sea. The dogs have died slow and painful deaths; they starved so much so that they started eating each other and their cries were audible from the shores of Istanbul. Fast-forward 100 years, in October of 2013, locals of the Northern part of Istanbul were shocked to find wild hogs swimming in the Bosphorus. Not only were they unaware that these hogs existed, they also could not understand why they would swim in choppy streams of the Bosphorus.

Strange Sensations: Reading Bodily Experience in the Nineteenth Century: NeMLA 2017

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 11:23am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks papers that explore the representation and function of sensory experience in the nineteenth century, with an emphasis on strange, unstable or unreliable sensory episodes and their larger literary and cultural significance. Rather than subordinating body to mind, how do nineteenth-century texts reveal an emergent cultural interest in the material body and its physiological particularities? We are especially interested in papers that investigate the role of sensory representations across disciplines and explore bodily matters at the intersection of nineteenth-century literature, science, philosophy or visual art.
