CFP NeMLA 2017: Economy of I's: Bartering Subjects & the Multiplied Self in the American Lyric

updated: 
Monday, August 22, 2016 - 10:22am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable session is seeking papers that consider how first person pronouns and declarative clauses are used in the American lyric and how their use potentially highlights the ways in which place and nationality work to construct notions of the self in relation to the collective body—work to construct a political economy of empathetic identification.

American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting, Utrecht, Netherlands, July 6-9, 2017 Seminar Proposal: Periodizing the End: The Sense of an Ending at 50When Frank Kermode delivered the Mary Flexner Lectures at Bryn Mar College in 1965, he tried hard to debunk the apocalyptic anxieties of his time: “it seems doubtful that our crisis, our relation to the future and to the past, is one of the important differences between us and our predecessors.” It is a remarkable claim to have made just a few years removed from the Cuban Missile Crisis; perhaps it was even more remarkable to read in 1967, when the lectures were published as The Sense of an Ending: Studies in the Theory of Fiction.

While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.
