(2017 SEA Biennial) Blood Moves: the transmission of bodies, ideas and diseases between the early republic and the Caribbean

updated: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2016 - 2:39pm
Ray Leonard/ University of Miami

This panel looks to capitalize on the recent turn towards the Caribbean in Early American studies. Scholars such as Michael Drexler, Ed White, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, Sean Goudie and Marlene Daut have provided an invaluable framework for conceiving the fraught connections between the U.S and the Caribbean. This panel is looking for papers that investigate the (de)generative discourses and ideologies produced by the movement of bodies, ideas and disease between the U.S, the Caribbean and the broader Atlantic. Papers might focus on how these categories were themselves compromised- bodies as diseases, diseases as ideas, ideas as diseases.

The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices

The times they are a changing. Students have questions. Do we have answers? Does academic freedom give us the right to .... ? Academic voices can often create divergence, difficulties, disputes, and unending digressions within disciplines, but what real differences do our voices make to our students and our colleagues and our world?

The Atrium invites you to submit innovative, creative and critical narrative essays, research-based articles across the disciplines, poetry, and book/website reviews. We share best practices with colleagues with the aim of making a difference in the lives of students and fellow faculty at colleges and universities around the world.

The Wyndham Lewis Society

Wyndham Lewis's centrality in the 'little magazine' and periodical cultures of the early twentieth century is well established.

This volume of 'JWLS' seeks 7-10,000-word essays that will expand our understanding of Lewis's contributions to these publications and the social, artistic, bibliographic, and economic networks from which they are inseparable. All submissions should try to engage with the most recent relevant scholarship. Suggested topics include:
