Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?

We invite contributions to an edited volume on comparative ecocritical studies of Latin American writing, film visual art, and performance that address the topic of ecological violence. How do writers, filmmakers, visual, performance artists, and practitioners of other forms of material culture conceptualize, visualize, and describe ecological vulnerability and insecurity? What are their strategies to convey the acts of violence on the environment that, as Rob Nixon explains in his definition of “slow violence”, are all too often invisible because they are “dispersed across time and space”? Which forms of expression are chosen, alongside and beyond conventional genres, to help apprehend ecological destruction and threats?

This session welcomes papers that will investigate the range of comedic forms embedded within African American literature. On the heels of the twentieth anniversary of the release of Saidiya Hartman’s seminal monograph Scenes of Subjection, this panel’s exploration of the use of humor in black literature offers a new critical framework for exploring the ways that spectacles of violence have continued to undergird representations of black performance in contemporary critical thought. From the auction block to the jazz stage, “blackness” manifests epidermally and externally, often through public articulations of shared racial grief. As such, recent critical work has often framed humor as a tactical response to racial violence.

Self-Translation Is Not Translation At All

Unlike the translator of someone else’s work, a self-translator does not translate: she “thinks” in both languages. Self-translation, then, may not be translation at all, but be merely the process of creating “the same” literary work in a different language. This roundtable invites writers, translators and scholars to examine examples of Self-Translation from high literature, popular culture, or ideally their own attempts, and discuss to what degree the “Self” is bound by the language(s) which it uses to express itself.
