Though neither Mr. Thornton nor Mr. Bell evoke “Utopia” flatteringly in Elizabeth Gaskell’s North & South, each mention of the term situates the concept of utopianism at the center of the novel’s labour dispute and makes the reader wonder if Margaret Hale might not be a utopian heroine. Not considered a utopic text, North & South nevertheless engages itself in a conversation about utopianism (and dystopianism). This panel seeks papers re-reading non-utopic texts (or authors) from the nineteenth century as utopic. By June 9th, please submit a 200-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dan Abitz, Georgia State University,

[DEADLINE EXTENDED] Realisms in American Detective Fiction

Sunday, October 2, 2016 - 7:22pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel invites papers that question and expand the critical discussion on the issue of realism in American detective fiction. Where does detective fiction fit within the tradition of American realism? To what extent does the detective story endorse, critique, or push back against the latter genre’s perceived conservatism? In what ways do realist detective fiction adhere to, or differ from, other genre fiction’s attempts at authenticity? How does the genre codify authenticity and how does the codification change historically? We seek presentations that touch on questions such as these as well as others that uncover novel aspects of realism in American detective fiction.

PAMLA 2016, Special Session

Institutional sponsor: California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Session Chair: Stephanie Gibbons, Independent Scholar; Aaron DeRosa, Assistant Professor of 20th/21st C. American Literature, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Session Title: Queering Terror

Abstract (50 words): If the post-9/11 moment associated terror with region and religion, how have events—Katrina and Ferguson, the Great Recession and Greek austerity, climate change and uprisings—mutated our understanding of the term? Can terror be a useful model for thinking through racialized and gendered violence, normalized extremism, and neoliberal policies?
