Trayvon Martin in Popular Culture

Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 11:13am
Northeast MLA

Trayvon Martin's murder is the latest in a long string of unpunished assassinations and assaults–from Emmett Till to Medgar Evers to James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner to Amadou Diallo to Sean Bell–that come to define a limit on the possibilities of Black life in the United States. Martin's death stands out from those that preceded it, however, by the solicitous reaction of the sitting president. This panel seeks to evaluate popular culture's reactions to this spectacular event.

Love and Loss in Modernist Poetry (NEMLA, Toronto, April 30-May 3, 2015)

Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 9:47am
Northeastern Modern Language Association

While poetry itself has played a historically long and significant role in the discourse of love, the period of modernity seems to be largely associated with its opposites. As the standard narrative goes, citizens the world over felt overwhelmed and frightened by the sundry and rapid changes – literal, conceptual, moral, and beyond – brought about by industrialization, scientific developments, WWI, etc. And the poetry that characterizes this time period represents and reflects on some of the more devastating changes. But what happens to poetic love in the early 20th century? What specifically happens when love, loss, and poetry come together during such a fraught time?

Capitalist Realist Fictions - Narrative 2015 Chicago (March 5-8, 2015)

Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 8:38am
Ian Butcher, Duquesne University

In his Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste, Philip Mirowski puts to rest the myth that the current economy is beyond the understanding even of experts, demonstrating that mainstream economic writing and financial journalism has undertaken a concerted abdication of explanatory authority in the wake of the global financial crisis of 2008. This lack of explanation is symptomatic of a much wider issue: what Mark Fisher has termed "capitalist realism," or a resigned acceptance of capitalism and an inability to imagine other possibilities.

NEMLA 2015 Panel: Maternal Hauntings in Asian American Literature and Popular Culture

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 6:53pm
Jina Lee

Avery Gordon in Ghostly Matters claims, 'The way of the ghost is haunting, and haunting is a particular way of knowing what has happened or is happening. Being haunted draws us affectively, sometimes against our will and always a bit magically, into the structure of feeling we come to experience, not as cold knowledge, but as a transformative recognition.'

Activist, Professor, or Scholar? Best Practices in Gender Scholarship

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 3:09pm
Lisa Day

University professors who "do gender" refuse to spend their careers in an ivory tower, but because of this choice, we are sometimes faced with a dilemma: How do we divide our time between teaching, research, and practice? How much of our own advocacy work do we mention in the classroom?
