deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Latin America is, according to the Washington Post, the most violent region in the world. It is no wonder then that a great deal of its cultural production depicts this everyday reality. This session welcomes papers in English or Spanish dealing with the representation of violence in recent Latin American audiovisual media (films, telenovelas, videoclips) and pondering how they reflect or reproduce, criticize or reinforce, the actual violence pervasive throughout the region.

Please submit a 300-word abstract and brief biographical statement by September 30, 2019 directly through NeMLA's system: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/18256

Jane Eyre calls herself “a wander on the face of this earth.” Excluded from the family in which she is raised and the normative models of female development that should guide her, her state is one of radical orphan-hood. An unwanted, unearthly thing, she must nonetheless find or make a space for herself in this world.
