Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:45pm
NEMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The urgency to understand the transformations in the capitalist world system since the 1970s and describe its volatile processes of expansion has spawned a few creative attempts at periodization: Eric Hobsbawm’s “Landslide” (1994), Robert Brenner’s “The Long Downturn” (2006), Immanuel Wallerstein’s “Managed Decline” (2006), and Judith Stein’s “Age of Inequality” (2010) to name only a few. While economists and historians may disagree about the sources of crisis, from Harvey’s over-accumulation thesis to Brenner’s over-production and over-competition, there remains little doubt that the 1970s proved to be a “pivotal decade” and that we are now living with the consequences.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 'Contemporary Dramatic Monologues’

(Dramatic monologue, also known as a persona poem, is a type of poetry
written in the form of a speech of an individual character. M.H.
Abrams notes the following three features of the dramatic monologue as
it applies to poetry

1.. A single person, who is patently not the poet, utters the speech
that makes up the whole of the poem, in a specific situation at a
critical moment

2. This person addresses and interacts with one or more other people;
but we know of the auditors' presence, and what they say and do, only
from clues in the discourse of the single speaker.
