CFP: Midwest Modern Language Association, English III: English after 1900

The Midwest Modern Language Association English III: English after 1900 session invites essays for its session at the upcoming November 10-13, 2016 conference in St. Louis, MO.

The theme for the conference is "Border States." We encourage papers that consider this topic literally or figuratively. This approach lends itself not only to location but also to movement like immigration, and, additionally, states of otherness in its interpretation. Papers may address fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or drama.

Midwest Modern Language Association

In recognition of this year's conference theme, "Border States," the American Literature II permanent section (1870-present) welcomes papers that are interested in questioning, criticizing, re-arranging, or otherwise complicating the seemingly irreconcilable disciplinary borders between economics and the arts in American Literature after the Civil War. How might the "dismal science" of economics inform our understanding of American literature, and likewise, how might our understanding of American literature and the arts affect how we think about economic life, homo economicus, future or utopian economics, etc?
Possible questions for consideration include:

York University and TIFF Bell Lightbox

Although it has established itself as a sub-discipline or hybrid of film and philosophy in various European formations, film-philosophy is relatively new to North American cinema and media studies. As one of the first in North America to nominate itself under its auspices, this conference explores the mobilization of philosophical discourses and projects relative to the modern event of cinema. More specifically, we seek papers that address the origins of film-philosophy, in addition to its current manifestations and future potentialities.

Teaching Central/Eastern Europe and Its Communist Past (Deadline Update)

updated: 
Sunday, February 28, 2016 - 8:04pm
Modern Language Association (MLA) Philadelphia, PA, January 2017

Central & Eastern Europe's cultural visibility has increased since the 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall and with Romanian-born German writer Herta Müller's 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature. In light of this new visibility, how are Central/Eastern European cultures and history being taught, both within and outside the region? What has changed in the way these countries (past and present) contribute to the understanding of the cultural configuration of the region or the continent? How and what should educators include in various curricula? How do we teach the communist period to new generations and/or to the West and the rest of the world?
