CFP NeMLA 2017: "Queer and Now": Queerness in the Mainstream

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

On or about June 26, 2015, human character changed. As late as 1991, Eve Sedgwick observed that being queer at that time still meant being someone whose life did not matter and whose very survival was highly uncertain (“Queer and Now”). Yet, our contemporary “now” is a moment which has seen same sex marriage declared a federal right; openly queer persons appear as comedians, TV reporters and characters on shows, in films and recently on the musical stage. No longer “apparitional” in Terry Castle’s well-known sense, queers of the current moment might not be confined to haunting the margins of the social imaginary.

Cyberqueer Strategies in Contemporary Art, Film and Media - panel

This is a call for proposals on cyberqueer strategies in contemporary art, film and media.

The importance given to spatial configuration in relation to technology in contemporary art and film scholarship points to the fact that cyberspace is no longer viewed as an intangible software entity or space outside our physical reality. Instead, it is understood as a pervasive presence imbedded within our DNA.  Many contemporary artists and filmmakers who have grown up with the Internet have labeled their artistic practice “post-Internet,” in order to articulate this cultural shift.

Trans Atlantic Shell Shock
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock (a term that this volume understands as denoting specifically mental trauma unique to World War I), greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This proposed peer-reviewed comparative collection seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

Technological advances at the intersection between science and art have provided new ways of scrutinizing and representing microcosmic and the macrocosmic realms by multiplying the scales and the processes involved in the constitution of the material world. Technologies such as the microscope, photography, imaging technologies (PET scan, X-ray, MRI), human-made mutations and microcinematography have challenged the boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, and have posed important challenges to traditional notions of the organic and inorganic, human and non-human, nature and urban, normalcy and pathology.
