Poetry and Identity: Shaping and Sharing the Trauma of Displacement (NeMLA 2020 - Panel)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:13pm
Lucie HOUDU (for a 2020 NeMLA Panel)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation? How does this potential blend of languages and cultural references (including code-switching and code-mixing) inscribe a troubled identity, trying to reconstitute oneself via a poetic text?

"The Aesthetics of Decay: Creative Modes of Destruction" International Conference Oxford

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:54pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 10, 2019

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siècle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson’s intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

Poster Presentations

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:48pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (Mar 5-8 2020 Boston)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

NeMLA recognizes the significant contribution of visual presentations to the body of academic study of literature and other linguistic constructions. Posters can relay complex information in ways that text alone cannot. These sessions are an opportunity for NeMLA scholars to share visual representations of their research. The format of the session allows presenters to display their work in a casual setting and to engage in informal conversations with convention participants regarding their work at a designated place and time.

Hawthorne’s Massachusetts

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:42pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (Mar 5-8 2020 Boston)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This session considers the relationship Nathaniel Hawthorne had with his home state. Topics may consider the incorporation of Massachusetts history into his fiction, who is included and excluded from that history, transatlantic elements to his writing, and the shadow of his family’s history and politics over his literature.
