CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS
We invite contributions to our proposed volume, Queer Landscapes: Mapping Queer Space(s) of Praxis and Pedagogy . For two decades, queer theory has provided a flexible methodology for engaging the world. This broad theoretical approach is slowly working to dissolve dialectical boundaries erected to contain rigid distinctions separating disciplines within the academy, and the academy itself from the world beyond. In doing so, queer theory has opened up new landscapes in diverse fields in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, pushing us to reconsider the ways in which we organize and navigate knowledge.

Challenging Narratives: Nineteenth century in Latin America

Friday, May 18, 2012 - 12:50pm
NeMLA 2013

For many years critical thought around the nineteenth century in Latin America has been focused on the relationship between post-independence literary production and the consolidation of the so called nation-state. Nevertheless, as we approach a time in which the notion of "national borders" is put into question and a thought of the post-national emerges, a reevaluation of this critical approach seems to be necessary. In this sense, this panel seeks to explore alternative nineteenth century narratives that speak to the current political, cultural and socio-economic context.

Engendering the Victorian Female Poet

There has been a historic tide of scholarship arguing the merits of Victorian poetry written by women. From Aurora Leigh to "Goblin Market," nineteenth-century female poets created a canon of verse that questioned gender categories and troubled the status quo. While scholars from Oliphant to W.M. Rossetti added valuable interpretations that legitimized the genre, contemporary critics such as Armstrong, Tucker, and Prins have used modern lenses to probe the subtleties inherent in the work of a "poetess." This roundtable will discuss the ways gender is mapped onto and inherent in nineteenth-century female poetics.

Nineteenth-Century Eco-poetics, 2013 NeMLA, March 21-24, Boston, MA

Sophie Lavin

How does nature operate in nineteenth-century poetry? From Arnold's "Scholar-Gypsy" to Leopardi's "La Ginestra," nineteenth-century poets privileged the nature motif in their verse. While literary critics have queried these poetic projects by focusing on Empire, religion, gender, and form, few scholars have explored eco-critical approaches to this global canon. This panel will consider poems where science interrogates landscape, faith interacts with nature, and industrialization pocks the pastoral. We will begin by exploring how the systematic and organized study of nature—and the advent of the natural sciences—impacted verse forms.

Essay Collection Book Proposal: Disgust in Early Modern English Literature (abstracts due June 30, 2012)

Natalie Eschenbaum / University of Wisconsin - La Crosse

Ashgate Press has expressed sincere interest in publishing this edited collection of essays on disgust in early modern English literature. The book will examine how and why early modern English individuals experienced repulsion, and how and why they expressed this repulsion in poetry, plays, and prose. The study of disgust in early modern literature is essential and overdue, and dovetails nicely with important work currently being done on the five bodily senses. As other disciplines (e.g. anthropology, psychology, history, philosophy) have discovered, to be disgusted is to be human, and to be disgusted in certain ways, by certain things, is to identify with a particular culture.
