Please consider submitting an abstract for the following panel at the 2018 NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, PA on April 12-15, 2018: Identities under Siege: The Other in Fascist Discourses
ethnicity and national identity
The contemporary Bildungsroman has become a de-centered and globalised genre. An important consequence of this diversification has been the increasingly numerous representations of Bildung across languages. The impact that linguistic diversity and language ideologies have on the ways in which present-day stories of Bildung are told, received, and passed on has yet to be examined in a sustained fashion. After all, the Bildungsroman emerged as a literary genre contemporaneously with the advent of European modernity.

From the impact of its eleventh-century rebuilding to the spread of Thomas Becket's cult across Europe and the Near East, Canterbury was an influential cultural center in the high medieval world. In keeping with the IMC theme, this session examines the role of memory and identity at Canterbury in the 11th-13th centuries. How did Canterbury's competing spiritual communities imagine themselves fitting into England's -- and Christendom's -- past and present? What insights can the manuscripts from Canterbury's scriptoria provide into the role of texts and images in articulating overlapping religious, linguistic, and political identities? How were Canterbury's identities translated beyond the British Isles?

Editors Gregory J. Hampton (Howard University) and Kendra R. Parker (Hope College) are seeking submissions for The Bloomsbury Companion to Octavia E. Butler. This book will be a collection of literary criticism and theory by an international range of contemporary scholars exploring major themes across the full span of Octavia Butler’s writing.
We welcome essays that survey past and current scholarship on Butler; however, we are most interested in work that will point forward to new directions and new agendas in Butler scholarship on both domestic and international levels.
