Please read on and submit your idea(s) to us. We are excited to hear from you.

NeMLA 2020 Seminar, 

Boston, March 5-8, 2020

This seminar seeks to explore the current engagements with "New Sincerity" in literature from Central and Eastern Europe. It expands the geographic borders of discourses on "New Sincerity" by moving beyond the North American and post-Soviet contexts. It also aims to examine the changes to the "New Sincerity" aesthetic in an age of "post-truth" and more than two decades after David Foster Wallace’s call for writers who are "too sincere."

NeMLA Panel: 'The New Lost Generation': African American Expatriate Writers in Paris, 1945-60

In his 1961 essay “The New Lost Generation,” James Baldwin argues that Europe gave the “new” African American expats of the late 1940s and the 1950s “the sanction, if one can accept it, to become oneself. No artist can survive without this acceptance. But rare indeed is the American artist who achieved this without first becoming a wanderer, and then, upon his return to his own country, the loneliest and most blackly distrusted of men.” Indeed, Baldwin asserts that African American expats in Paris gained a kind of liberation through their experience with a culture wholly unlike their own.

Call for Chapters - Audio Disruption

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:47am
David Allan/Saint Joseph's University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 1, 2019

Objective of the book: This edited research book focuses on audio disruption from a wide spectrum. While some industries have been more disruptive than others, none have probably been more transformational than music streaming (Spotify, Pandora, etc.). While the disruption of the music industry itself due to streaming has been well documented, the disruption of the industries that rely on popular music namely radio, advertising and retail have not. For radio (iHeartMedia, Beasley, Entercom, etc.), this includes the additional audio competition and ever expanding availability and transportability.
