'States of Emergence, States of Emergency'

Deadline for articles: 15th August 2011

Submit online at:

'The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history which is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency, and this will improve our position in the struggle against fascism.'

Sports Stories & American Culture

Tuesday, June 14, 2011 - 2:15pm
Cara Erdheim & Rick Magee, Sacred Heart University

"Sports Stories & American Culture": We solicit papers from a wide range of disciplines that look to American literature as a way to understand sports--and vice versa. We are interested in the distinction between stories focused on sports as spectatorship (which characterize much of U.S. culture) and narratives written by or about athletes who have performed in specific events. For example, Marianne Moore's poems about baseball, often written from the fans' perspective, read differently than Jackie Joyner-Kersee's Kind of Grace: The Autobiography of the World's Greatest Female Athlete. We look for papers that consider some of the following questions: to what extent has America's athletic and exercise culture been governed by a masculine ethos?

(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling (9/30/2011; NeMLA 3/15-18/2012, Rochester, NY)

(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling

If "disco is dead" and "hip-hop is in crisis" then what do we make of renewed and continued interest in these genres--and how are disco and hip-hop relevant to literary texts? Recent scholarship on disco culture (by Alice Echols, Peter Shapiro, Tim Lawrence, and Vince Aletti) and critical studies about hip-hop culture (by Tricia Rose, Bakari Kitwana, Adam Bradley, Gwendolyn Pough, and Jeff Chang) insist on examining the complexities within these musical genres, their cultures, and descendents.
