CfP NeMLA 18: Keeping it Real After Postmodernism (Roundtable)

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Postmodernism is clearly dead—its death and what follows it have been theorized in a myriad of different ways, most recently perhaps by the special edition of Twentieth Century Literature entitled Postmodern/Postwar—And After in the spring of 2016. The advancements of digital technology and the pressing need to look beyond the human and onto a planetary scale of existence are frequent explanations for recent shifts in literary and cultural production. But what explains the resurgence of novels written in the realist mode?

JMMLA Spring 2018 Special Issue: Metonymy, Poetics, Performance

updated: 
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 11:31am
Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

This special issue has a cluster of three terms at its center: metonymy, poetics, and performance. These three terms have to do with conventional structures and what it means to live in them. Metonymy, a trope in which common association lets one thing stand in for another, mobilizes conventional relations. Poetics, the theory of how a text’s elements work together, studies the structures through which artistic effects exist. Performance involves living out relations within structures like genre, medium, and circumstance. Together, these terms allow us to think through the metonymical relations among art, artist, and context.

Over the last few decades, body modification in its many forms and guises has experienced an apparent visibility, appropriation, and revivalism in mainstream media and culture. Spanning centuries of history, body modification can range in intensity and craftsmanship from “normal” (such as earlobe piercings or bodybuilding) to “hardcore” (such as full bodysuit tattoos, surgical modifications, transdermal implants, and even amputations).

Postcolonial Queers: Representations, Remediations, Revolutions (NeMLA18 Panel)

updated: 
Monday, July 3, 2017 - 11:22am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The convergence of queer studies with postcolonial theory aims, at its core, to interrogate discourses that created hegemonic and binary categories that in turn became eventual grounds for the historical racialization of sexuality and the sexualization of race. By seeking to destabilize conventions of normalcy, tradition, and power, postcolonial queer studies puts forward non-normative and non-Western conceptions of race, sexuality, and gender that negotiate the spectrum where universalizing neoliberal, White, and predominantly gay love exists on one end; and where the exoticizing, orientalist homogenization of the “Other” exists on the other.
