Call for papers for Seminar at

40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts

In describing the American male protagonist in pre-feminist literature
and popular culture, critics from D.H. Lawrence to Leslie Fiedler and
Marshall McLuhan have remarked on his violence and isolation. However,
social, political and economic changes of the 1960s and 1970s have
resulted in new ideals of American masculinity. This seminar invites
essays that examines the masculinity as constructed in specific American
novels or films produced since 1980. Send brief abstracts in body of

North East Modern Language Association
Boston, MA
February 26-March 1, 2009

Using a cultural studies lens, this panel is interested in exploring the
dialectical role literature and popular culture played in (re)
establishing Britain's imperialist identity in a post-imperial climate.
Rather than face the consequences of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative
policies, the British culture industry chose to look back to periods of
colonial domination, power, and prestige. This panel will examine this
convergence of nostalgia, empire, and media to analyze how the
contemporary British culture industry sought to (re) articulate British
identity through the period's literature and popular culture.

than others. We are nearing the end of the decade that has no agreed upon
name, and 2008 is a year that promises the beginning of significant change.
