WORKING WOMEN SUFFRAGETTES' LIFE WRITING IN BRITAIN AND AMERICA

updated: 
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 9:36pm
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 9, 2018

DEADLINE EXTENDED. While there has been interest in the suffrage movement in both America and England for many years now, one area that has not received as much scholarly attention is the analysis of Life Writing created by those within the movement. Both working- and middle-class women provide an intimate portrait of what it was like to fight for suffrage for so many years.  I propose a panel that examines the connections between suffragettes of different classes, ages, and nationalities as well as those in positions of power who supported them throughout. By May 30, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief biographical statement, and any AV requirements to Sarah N.

Call for papers for edited collection on media, incarceration, prisons

Prisons, prisoners, and crime are attracting unprecedented levels of interest from both predictable sources (tabloid media) to more unexpected (such as the prison setting of Paddington 2).

 

Globally, but especially in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia, the real life prison population is rising dramatically. The fictional presentations of prison, which may be prurient and sexploitative, high minded or fantastical, is matched by the barely factual and highly sensationalized prison of reality television. Orange is the New Black is only the latest example of the compulsion media of all types have to look inside the prison.

NeMLA is turning 50! Please come and help us celebrate our Anniversary Convention at the Gaylord National in Washington DC, March 21–24, 2019.

The theme of our 2019 convention is "Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Cultures, Languages, and Peoples." It aims to challenge traditional notions of history, territory, and identity and to recognize the complex processes of trans-culturation that have characterized modernity.

As the capital of the United States, Washington, DC, plays an important role in shaping both national and global history. It is vital that NeMLA bring its convention to this seat of power in order to address the ongoing challenges we face in producing a world that values diversity, honesty, scholarship, and justice.
