Exploring the Erotic: Bodies, Desires, Practices
10th Global Meeting

Call for Presentations 2016
Thursday 21st January – Saturday 23rd January 2016
London, United Kingdom

Traces of the erotic are all around us, embodied in images, music, advertising, stories, inter-personal interactions, dreams and desires. Whether expressed in symbolic or literal form, the erotic has captured human imagination across time and cultures, shaping our understanding and experience of pleasure and intimacy along the way. While there is no denying that the erotic has an irresistible appeal, it is also viewed as a taboo to be suppressed or hidden.

Gender and Class Representation in U.S. Culture, NeMLA, Hartford, 3/17-3/20

47th **Northeast Modern Language Association Convention

This panel investigates the contemporary meaning of gender and class in film and literature in the United States. While authors such as Sheryl Sandberg and Hannah Rosin focus on women in the professional ranks to argue for women's prominence in U.S. culture and stories of professional women dominate the media, few stories of working-class women have emerged to challenge the symbolic dominance of the white male worker and breadwinner. As work, families, and genders have changed, how has this symbolism been reinforced or challenged in literature and film?

The rise of the modern museum was (and remains) a global event that resonates across literary cultures. Germain Bazin termed the nineteenth century the "Museum Age" for the myriad ways the new phenomenon of the public museum redefined the social status of art. This session investigates how this development was received by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Anglophone authors writing during and immediately following the rise of the modern museum.

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology (NeMLA 2016) Sept 30 Deadline

updated: 
Sunday, June 28, 2015 - 4:21pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 47th Annual NeMLA Convention March 17-20, 2016 Hartford, CT

This panel means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary American poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow's notion of entanglement, i.e., a "condition of overlapping recurrences," the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena. It thus brings occurrences together through affinity and disjunction alike and offers a powerful paradigm to think about mediation in relation to complex networks and loop interactions.
