MIGRATORY POETICS: LITERATURE, THEORY AND VISUAL CULTURES IN TRANSLATION
Dates: December 6-7, 2018
Keynote Speaker: Sayak Valencia (El Colegio de la Frontera Norte)
Is World Literature the new, upgraded version of Comparative Literature (Comp Lit 2.0) or rather an attenuated, impoverished version of the latter? What unites us, and what divides us, especially considering that many World Lit faculty are drawn from Comp Lit backgrounds? How do we, practitioners in these fields, rethink these disciplines for the era when humanities as such are under constant attack? In this session, we hope to discuss our shared ground and our shared challenges. This roundtable is organized by the NeMLA World Literature Working Group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of World Literature.

Call for Abstracts for Proposed Panel (Society for Cinema and Media Studies, Seattle 2019)
Proposed Panel: Women Filmmakers Around the Globe
Of late, there is a decided increase in the attention toward women’s contributions to culture and media, both in the popular press and academic literature. Numerous writers have documented historical achievements, contemporary struggles, everyday lived experiences, and cultural and societal triumphs of women’s experiences, particularly in screen media.
This session will explore the rationale of Post-postcolonial revisionism introduced by the US as global colonizer from Post-postcolonial Pakistani Literature while focusing on the post 9/11 social misrepresentations. There are four aspects which highlight the theme of the session (US as Global Colonizer): 1) US hegemony in the form of Revisionism, through social misrepresentations and exploitation 2) The recursivity of nuclear power and American domination that alludes to the evolving “great game” in Afghanistan 3) Welfare of Imperialism: American influence on Paksitan’s internal policies and minority rights in Pakistan, and 4) The relationship between US (neocolonizer) and Pakistan (colonized) in the aftermath of 9/11.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is among the most prominent and admired young writers of African Europhone fiction. As a Nigerian and Igbo author, she has been linked with one of her renowned predecessors, Chinua Achebe. Indeed Achebe himself paid tribute to Adichie's talent, observing that "Adichie came almost fully made." Clearly one of the influences that shaped that talent has been Achebe's own fiction. Adichie's novels and shorter fiction allude to and draw on elements of Achebe's work, and this panel will explore dimensions of storytelling, history, politics, gender, and culture that create a complex and rich dialogue between the two authors.

Analog Games and Gender
Panel for Game Studies Section
Concepts of gender have been a cornerstone of contemporary discussion in the field of game studies (Hayes 2011; Kafai et al 2008; Shaw 2014; Williams, Ratan, and Harrison 2011) . While much of the research is firmly tied to video games, understandings of gender in analog games has slowly come to the fore. Increased media related to live action role playing games (larp), the unpredicted resurgence of Dungeons & Dragons, and the longevity of collectible card games like Magic The Gathering demonstrate analog games as a durable subsection of game studies that is ripe for academic analysis in terms of gender.

Securing a position as a fulltime tenure track professor is difficult but even more so for people with a disability. Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for fulltime positions, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.
