NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La tavola rotonda si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo.

Discourse on Protest and Reform in 19th-century Women's Writing
(Roundtable)

Women's and Gender Studies / Cultural Studies and Media Studies

Chair: Nilgun Anadolu-Okur (Temple University)

As stones and shattered glass landed on the platform in Pennsylvania Hall on May 17, 1838, a newly-wed Angelina Grimké Weld bravely exclaimed, "Women of Philadelphia! Allow me as a Southern woman, with much attachment to the land of my birth, to entreat you to come up to this work…let me urge you to petition." This roundtable contributes to our understanding of women's leadership

Papers on the following authors are also invited: Frances Ellen Watkins-Harper, Maria Stewart, Harriet Beecher Stowe and other authors.

"Hauntings" / NeMLA panel, March 17-20, Hartford, CT

Description: In recent years, haunting has been theorized as a temporal aberration, as a form of memory (involuntary memory), as spectrality, as an absence, and as a structure of feeling (affect). Haunting brings us in touch with a history that remains invisible, creating a channel of communication with an entity that remains foreclosed and inaccessible. The The structure of haunting thus is always paradoxical, and is similar to what Mckenzie Wark calls dark media—the "mediation of that which can't be mediated." Haunting can have different levels of intensity; and most texts, just like most places, can be seen as haunted in one way or another.

The Multigenerational Latino Novel: Structure and Nuance in the Latino Experience

Northeast Modern Language Association Conference, 2016 DUE 9/30

When we explore and critique Latin@ novels, it is a common practice to do so from the perspective of race, class, gender, and colonial identities. While we recognize that these thematic concerns are pressing, we sometimes gloss over the space where thematic and structural forms come together. Interestingly, some of the most important Latin@ writers utilize very similar structural forms, specifically the multi-generational novel—as a way to tackle these issues.
