Anthropogenic climate change is not an "equal opportunity" threat--the poor will suffer much more than the wealthy. Many American writers recognize this and address socioeconomic struggle alongside global warming. Since both wealth inequality and planetary warming are socially constructed forces of economics and politics, how do American writers narrate one in terms of the other in order to reveal and connect the dual exploitation of the poor and the earth? Upload 500-word proposals by September 1, 2017 to panel number 16744 "Clif-fi and Class" to   questions to

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.

Disruptive Clothes

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:24pm
Nicole Paronzini / 2018 NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel seeks papers that address the disruptive role of clothes along with the possibility they provide the individual or a group to challenge a super-imposed set of rules and to create discontinuity within their community. 

The purpose of this panel is to shed light on the many functions of clothes in literature and cinema but not only, and on how clothing and garments can become symbols of individual power and redemption. Throughout what they choose to wear or not to wear, men and women send a clear message against the passive acceptance of injustices and prevarications. Moreover, clothes may represent the ability for the subject to denounce the establishment and to assert their freedom and individuality. 

CORRECTION!!EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 5th) for SAMLA panel—The Avant-Garde and Modern Visual Culture: At the Crossroads of High and Low Art

Friday, June 2, 2017 - 11:24am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2017

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges. Immaterialities such as images are thus transformed into commodities that blend high and low aesthetic genres that participate in the consumer society.
