Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 9:59am

This panel will explore fictional landscapes of New England, particularly in their vexed relationships to the actual geographies negotiated by inhabitants of New England. Possible topics include but are not limited to: colonial accounts of 'new' land; the relationship between transcendental nature studies and growing nineteenth century industrialization; the role of local color and regionalist writing in shaping national perceptions of New England. Papers dealing with any historical period welcome. Submit 300 word abstracts, by September 30, to Rachel Collins at racollin@syr.edu.

What is "World Literature"? Abstracts due by Sept.30, 2010.

updated: 
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 - 6:08am
NeMLA 2011, April 6-10, New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The panel will explore what "world literature", that has embedded in it the conjunction world-historical, mean today. By the time Goethe coined the term in the 1800's much of the non-Western world was already colonized.The impact of this reorganization was far reaching for the West and the non-Western world.What role did colonial structures play in creating a unified global systems theory such as Orientalism? Can Orientalist literature claim to be "world literature"? Many of the challenges posed by the paradigms of "world literature", global translation, linguistic imperialism, nationalism and modernity open the discussion to new reflection and debate. Have its claims been obscured by assimilations and homogenizations as a result of globalization?

Teaching Sustainability: Multidisciplinary Perspectives and Approaches, June 21-26, 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 16, 2010 - 10:20pm
2011 ASLE Biennial Conference, Bloomington, IN

In 2009, The American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment published the "Climate Neutral Campus Report" outlining the role of higher education in addressing "the greatest intellectual, moral, and social challenge human civilization has ever faced" (6), the challenge of fostering a healthy, just, and sustainable society. While an increasing number of US Colleges and Universities are making environmentally sustainable practices a focus of campus operations, educating for sustainability is yet to become a curricular focus across all degrees and disciplines, the necessary foundation for a significant paradigm shift that some call the "sustainability revolution."

Posthumanism, Biopower, and Modern and Contemporary War, NeMLA, April 7-11, 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 16, 2010 - 5:44pm
Northeast Modern Language Association, Annual Convention

How have representations of war since the beginning the twentieth century engaged with ideas of biopower and posthumanism? Proposals might investigate representations of technology and embodiment in war, the tropes of modern war involving machines or animals (e.g. helicopters in Vietnam, dogs in torture scenarios), or how such cases affect theories of life and machinery. Proposals (300 words or fewer) addressing these issues in literature, film, and other relevant texts should be sent to Ryan Hediger, La Salle University, hedigerr@lasalle.edu. Please send questions to hedigerr@lasalle.edu as well.
