Queer Oceans Panel

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 5:40pm
NEMLA Convention 2018 Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel, titled Queer Oceans, seeks abstracts for papers that explore the ocean in relation to queer studies. The sea has frequently been idealized as a place for escaping the norms that bind life on land. From sodomitic pirates to the famous spermaceti scene in Moby-Dick, the sea often emerges in suggestively queer contexts. However, discussions of these queer possibilities rarely take into account the nautical setting in which they occur.

Positionality: Place, Race, and Revolution in Indigenous Women’s Identity

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 5:41pm
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 15, 2017


This NeMLA panel will focus on the ways women have transformed space and place as central to their creation of a self-determined identity. In particular, it will focus on indigenous women’s relationship to geography and gender in the construction of self. Such an autonomous identity subverts the societal expectations and cultural geographies that have forced definitions of race and gender upon 19th- and 20th-century women. This panel would be an intersection of cultural geography, indigenous and ethnic studies, social justice issues, and eco/feminism.

Culture Matters: "The state of cultural studies"

Culture In Focus
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Culture In Focus, a new eJournal of the English Department at Middle Georgia State University, is seeking papers for its inaugural issue.  Never before has culture been so important. Culture, after all, matters! So for our first issue of Culture in Focus we are setting our sights on nothing less than the state of cultural studies as it is being practiced throughout the realms of language and literature, and indeed, in all the relevant areas that fall within the scope of this journal. What is new in critical analysis? What is being reassessed or reinterpreted? What are cultural specialists doing and saying now?

Masculinity in Women’s Literature

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennett can never match the resourcefulness of his wife in her attempts to settle their five daughters in life; Edgar Linton in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is a caricature of manliness; in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, an only daughter, Molly Gibson, proves to be a better child to her father than a son, Osborne Hamley, who fails his parents; George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss presents Maggie Tulliver as a far stronger, braver and tougher character than her brother Tom.
