Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?

Comics and Magazines: An (Italian) Phenomenon

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Since its inception in 1908, the development of the comics medium in Italy has been marked by a profound symbiosis with magazines. Throughout the decades, the magazine as a container of cartoon strips and children’s stories (e.g. Corriere dei Piccoli) has evolved into different forms to cater to a broader and more varied readership. From the 1960s, family and adventure weeklies for children and adolescents (e.g. Il Giornalino, Intrepido, Lanciostory, etc.) coexisted with the so-called auteur comics magazines, which provided adults with both classic Anglo-Saxon comic strips and the latest comics stories by renowned Franco-Belgian, Argentinian, and Italian authors.

Presentist, Historical, and Unveiled Identities from Beowulf to the Eighteenth Century

This survey panel aims to establish dialogues between experts in early literatures. The confluence of epochs facilitates cross-historical discussion and provides a means for thinking about ways to teach early survey courses in university or college classrooms. This panel focuses on identities (racial, gendered, sexual, or mediatized, etc.). In recent years, scholars have labelled efforts to locate early forms of contemporary identity in early literature as presentist, an approach that tends to overlook differences between historical eras by prioritizing current concerns. However, are presentist methods actually flawed? And does any effort to trace earlier forms of current interests automatically constitute presentism?

Faking it. Forgery and Fabrication in Late Medieval and Early Modern Culture

The Early Modern Seminar, The University of Gothenburg

Wednesday, January 30, 2019

What is real and what is fake? And why does it matter? As soon as objects, texts and utterances (be they pragmatic or artistic) become imbued with a sense of authority or authenticity, there is a potential to produce other objects, texts and utterances which mimic and attempt to siphon off that authority and authenticity. In late medieval and early modern European culture (1400-1750), this potential was realized in new and unprecedented ways. Social, technological, and intellectual developments forever altered many activities which fall under the remit of forgery and fabrication, spurring lively debate about truth and falsity. The printing press transformed the production, distribution and marketing of texts and images.

Sunday, September 30, 2018

This year’s NEMLA conference includes focus on transnational spaces and “the complex processes of transculturation.” Since waterways such as oceans and rivers have historically been both media for and a contested sites of such processes, we invite panelists for a proposed session that will explore water and/as transcultural and transnational space. While we are particularly interested in exploring the cultural, political, and imaginative impulses that can work to turn waterways into transcultural spaces, we are equally interested in explorations of the forces that resist processes of transculturation.

As threat, as abject, as subject, and as a combination of all three, the figure of the migrant and the figure of the refugee loom large in the ethical imagination. The recent surge in desperate efforts of people to leave their homelands for other places, the Syrian refugee crisis, the mass displacement of the Rohingya, the “caravan” of Central American migrants seeking to cross the US-Mexico border, and of course the surge in anti-immigrant, and anti-migrant discourses all speak to the moral urgency of collective responses to these figures. It is one of the most pressing concerns of our current moment.

British Association for American Studies Annual Conference, University of Sussex 25-27 April 2019

In celebration of the fiftieth birthday of the Stonewall riots, this panel explores the intersections between queerness and horror fiction. Despite the progress made in the past few decades, recent events such as President Trump’s proposed transgender military ban mean that LGBTQ+ rights are anything but a given in the current political climate. This makes the critical study of queerness and its fictional representations more urgent than ever before.
