Any man, even the greatest, can be broken in a moment and has no refuge. Any theory which denies this is a lie. For myself, I have no theories.

49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12-15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel will aim to conceptualize the relationship between literature and the museum in the age of cultural mediation and digital media. We will examine how the imagined and immaterial museum space, as represented in the narrative text, can contribute to redefining the aesthetic experience for the spectator. This will also allow us to explore the critical posture adopted by contemporary authors with respect to the existing configuration of the physical museum space available to the public. The multiplication of stories staged in the museum space raises the question of the type of narratives that the museum experience can offer.

What new modes of literature have emerged in current activist movements and subcultures?  How do they mesh with longer standing forms of performance and protest?    This session, approved for the 2018 Northeast Modern Language Association in Pittsburgh, April 12-15th, aims to explore the explosion of activist communications online and in the streets to discover how they constitute new genres, forms, and modes of literacy. Papers on Women’s and Climate March posters, Pantsuit Nation posts, agitprop theater productions, poetry broadsides and posts, and on theories and ethics of activist communication are welcome.

“To write, and to read, is to be exposed, to expose oneself […] to ‘exscription’.” – The Birth to Presence

 

“We have to begin by getting through, and by means of, the exscription of our body: its being inscribed-outside, its being placed outside the text as the most proper movement of its text; the text itself being abandoned, left at its limit.” – Corpus

University of Paderborn, Germany

 

 

 This conference investigates the richness and variety of concepts of happiness from 1500 to 1750 as well as their negotiation and reconfiguration in the fictional and non-fictional literature of the period. We will probe the uses and meanings of “happiness,” a relatively new word in the 16th century, as well as the meanings and uses of its closely related terms felicity, (good) fortune, pleasure and bliss.

Fairy Tales, PCA/ACA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales (including creative projects, such as poems, short fiction, TV shows), and approaches that consider the subversive nature of the fairy tale (such as subverted family values, queering the fairy tale, etc.). Still, we are interested in as wide an array of papers as possible, so please do not hesitate to send a submission on any fairy tale related subject.
