deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Across the African diaspora, art was a form of expression and liberation at times of widespread cultural oppression, enabling artists of color to resist the tradition of silencing while preserving their histories, traditions, and more in ways that could be passed down intergenerationally. While much art worked to fulfill a political purpose by pushing for equality and liberty in oppressive cultures, other works aimed at achieving liberation by way of celebrating Black cultural forms, from the cutting-edge music of Erykah Badu to that of Janelle Monae.

The Writer's Vice: Alcohol and the American Writer, 1940-70

updated: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 4:46pm
Mark Noon / NEMLA Conference 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers addressing the impact of alcohol on American authors from 1940 to 1970. Is it true, as Susan Cheever has argued in Drinking in America: Our Secret History, that being a writer during this period "almost always meant getting drunk" and that "[a]lcoholism laid waste to the most talented American writers of the mid-twentieth century" ? The panel will work to separate the myths from the reality regarding the many writers who struggled with alcohol during the period. It will also assess the impact of alcohol on the quality of writing and its impact on the talent of writers.

Toni Morrison: The Emancipation Proclamation of the English Language

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 4, 2019

In the documentary, The Pieces I Am by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, David Carrasco calls Toni Morrison, “the Emancipation Proclamation of the English language.” The parallelism he conjures between the historical document and grandeur that is Morrison hints at the idea that she could do what Abraham Lincoln’s indenture could not: Toni Morrison frees black people from fake identities. Laced with the assurance that if others knew what she knows,—that prejudice exists in a hyperreality created by those who need it in order to define their purpose—black people will not accept perceived realities as their own; that their lives have meaning, and their stories can take center stage.

Friday, February 28, 2020

This four-day event will provide a unique conversation space for artists, performers, creatives, academics, and activists, to consider the vital role of the imagination in today’s complex climates – social, cultural, environmental, political, racial, religious, spiritual, intellectual, etc.

It will also invite conversation around further questions: What kinds of change? What are the grounds and manner of hope, transformation, and resilience? What might the arts and theology have to contribute to such discourse and action, if anything? How do we attend to the margins of this discussion, and speak and act more holistically as communities of change?

Childhood Unbound, Childhood Tamed, Childhood Eternal

We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topic may include, but are not limited to:

The Power and Limits of Narrative in Opposing Injustice

Literature, film, and other forums for bearing witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations. As such, narratives of witness have the power to connect people across divisions of nation, culture, and experience. They may contribute to shared national and even transnational identities.

[Reminder] Call for Chapters - Screening Loss: An Exploration of Grief in Contemporary Horror Cinema

Horror films have long held a place in cinematic history as an expression of the monstrous, the un-nameable, and the unknown. They are a powerful point of catharsis in which viewers see their deepest fears played out onscreen, whether the threat is fully embodied or less concretely defined. As a result, grief and loss have always figured heavily in this genre.
