Affect and Identity in Early Modern Performance, NeMLA 2013: Sep 30 deadline

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 3:40pm
44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), March 21-24, 2013

CFP: Affect and Identity in Early Modern Performance

This panel seeks to explore the potential performative and affective power of early modern drama on group identities. The theater, as locus of communal and social performativity, is a fruitful site to investigate the shaping force of affective response on collective identities and their historical narratives. How does the drama model and orchestrate response, reaction, and construction of identity categories based on age, race, class, gender, religion, nationalism, bodies, or other criteria? Please submit 250-word abstracts to rhizme@gmail.com.

Alexander McCall Smith's Humane Worlds: Finding Room for Delight in the Canon; March 21-24, 2013

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 3:00pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA) 44th Annual Convention, Boston

This panel seeks to explore and critique Alexander McCall Smith's fiction, while implicitly or explicitly commenting on the academy's willingness to accept popular and escapist literature. There is much to enjoy and consider in his writing, but as yet, he is primarily treated as 'merely' a writer of popular fiction. This panel invites papers that will seriously consider his work, the pleasures of reading, and the relationship of each to the academy. Please send 250-500 word abstracts to Nicole Willey at nwilley@kent.edu.

Modernist Intuitions (NEMLA, March 21-24, 2013, Boston) - EXTENDED DEADLINE

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 2:06pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

*NEW DEADLINE 9/30*

This panel seeks to explore representations of intuition in Modernist literature. As developments in technology, medicine, industry, and other areas seemed to rely on and value solely cognitive forms of sense making, many Modernist writers focused on intuitive knowledge as a possible remedy to the problems of the early 20th century. Abstracts that explore representations of alternative forms of knowing more broadly are welcome.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 400 words to Dr. Ellen McWhorter at mcwhortere@merrimack.edu by September 30, 2012.

WSQ Special Issue: Engage!

"I must decline your invitation owing to a subsequent engagement." — Oscar Wilde

"There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don't expect you to save the world I do not think it's asking to much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair and disrespect."

— Nikki Giovanni

CFP: Comics and the American Southwest and Borderland

The editors of Comics and the American Southwest and Borderlands seek submissions for this collection, which has interest from the University Press of Mississippi. We hope the collection does for the Southwest and Border region what Costello and Whitted's Comics and the U.S. South did for that region and Southern studies via mining, creating, and illuminating the intersections of comics scholarship and established academic writing on the Southwestern United States, the U.S-Mexico border, and their literatures, identities, and cultures.

[UPDATE] NeMLA 2013 panel, The Sequential Monster: Reading Comics as Monstrous

Emily Lauer, SUNY Suffolk County Community College

The Sequential Monster: Reading Comics as Monstrous

Comic books, graphic novels and webcomics generally combine words and images to create narratives. Perhaps we can see them, therefore, as monstrous: beasts that combine the elements of verbal and visual, narrative and static communication forms. Like a monster composed of pieces of other animals, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This panel will examine a social understanding of comics forms and the kinds of literacies required to accept and interpret them.

Abstracts of 300 words to lauere@sunysuffolk.edu; Deadline: September 30, 2012. Include: name, affiliation, anticipated a/v requirements.
