Migrant Literature from the Arabian Gulf (Khaleej)

updated: 
Sunday, May 20, 2018 - 9:16pm
SAMLA 2018 Conference-Sheraton Birmingham-Birmingham, Alabama
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 11, 2018

Contemporary migrant literature/s from the Arabian Gulf implore us to examine and reinterpret the ethico-political practices of a land that is paradoxically inhabited primarily by people from elsewhere. Non-citizens are a significant part of Gulf’s population. Benyamin’s Goat Days, Deepak Unnikrishnan’s Temporary People, Saud Al Sanousi’s The Bamboo Stalk, and Mia Alvar’s In the Country are some of the texts that make visible the particular anxieties of modern Arabian Gulf migratory politics through fiction.

SAMLA 90 - AIDS in French and Francophone Narratives / Le SIDA dans les narrations françaises et francophones

updated:

Olivier Le Blond
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

The AIDS crisis in France and Francophone countries has seen the emergence of a “littérature SIDA,” as well as artistic expressions through various media such as photography or films. On August 23rd 2017, the movie 120 battements par minute (BPM), shed a light on the first years of activism of Act Up-Paris in the early 1990s.  In April 2018, France Culture’s radio show LSD, La série documentaire, dedicated four days to the topic “Quand la création raconte le SIDA.” Despite the medical advances, both the movie and radio show reminded viewers and listeners of a duty to remember the AIDS crisis. This panel will focus on the representations of AIDS and the accompanying activism in literature, cinema and arts from French and Francophone artists.
