Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 9:31am
NeMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

In this panel, we propose to explore the roles of human-nonhuman encounters in the field of Latinx Studies and Literature at large. How do animal, human, botanical, and epistemological bodies alter the way we approach ontological interpretations in Latinx texts, visual art, and/or performances? In addition to these concerns, this Call for Papers seeks work that traverses a varied range of bodies and utilizes interdisciplinary frameworks in innovative ways. Topics might include, but are not limited to: race and animal studies, transgender bodies and queering the nonhuman, corporeal ecologies, critical approaches to landscapes, bodies of land, and water.

Memory and Lineage in Medieval Romance

The 25th Leeds International Medieval Congress has a special thematic strand of ‘memory’. Medieval romance lends itself to thinking about memory, in many ways, and not least because of its preoccupation with lineage. We invite proposals for 20-minute papers on any aspect of memory and/or lineage in medieval romance. 

 

The brief is deliberately broad, so please feel free to interpret according to your interest. Some thematic and theoretical approaches to consider may be: 

•inheritance / heritage / legacy

•remembering and recognition

•family histories and family politics

•textual lineage.

James Baldwin once said, “The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.” Baldwin’s words here are significant. Education shapes an individual’s critical questions about the world in which he or she lives and his or her connection to the world at large. This call for papers is for a Skype guest lecturer opportunity aimed at raising the consciousness of students in a Black History course at a HBCU.

The ultimate goal is to create a classroom that merges a variety of teaching styles so that a diverse range of student learning styles are accommodated.
