What does it mean to mourn? Why do we mourn the loss of some, but not others? Who are these “others,” and why do we not mourn “them”? For how many can each of us mourn?

NeMLA Annual Convention - Pittsburgh, PA - 12-15 April, 2018

In “Further Considerations on Afrofuturism”, Kodwo Eshun argued that the impact of the Middle Passage and slavery could still be felt in African American authorship today. The erasure of their African past, culture and heritage leaving them disconnected and made strangers, black writers look to the future as a way of dealing and engaging with the present. The term counterfutures is thus used to describe those writings that explore the potentiality of a dissonant life, ones which reimagine the futures the current path of human experience seems to lead to.

What is the Absurd? (NeMLA 2018 - Roundtable)

NeMLA Annual Convention - Pittsburgh, PA - 12-15 April, 2018

For a time, the Absurd was one of the chief literary movements of the day. When Martin Esslin published The Theatre of the Absurd he would frame various emerging playwrights such as Ionesco, Beckett and Pinter under one label. Though they would reject the term, the notion of the Absurd stuck and would invite a flurry of criticism from the academic world.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Pittsburgh, PA - 12-15 April, 2018

Chuck Palahniuk is one of the most prolific American authors of the past twenty years, averaging more than a book a year since exploding onto the scene with Fight Club (1996), which was made into a cult feature film by David Fincher, featuring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham-Carter and Jared Leto. The author made a name for by combining the comically absurd and grotesquely horrific in his tales of transgressive fiction and with time has developed a tendency to transgress his own writing style, experimenting with narrative forms as well as penning graphic novels and even a drawing book.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Performing The Early Modern English Woman (1500-1710): Seeing and Being Seen on the Domestic, Civic, and Dramatic Stage.

PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

or Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
