Lives in Transit: Subjectivity in the Age of Migration (NeMLA 2018)

updated:

More than thirty years ago, Edward Said wrote in Reflections on Exile that “our age...is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, mass immigration.” As migration becomes increasingly recognized as integral to contemporary societies, how does transit become central to how we understand urban spaces, communities, and the experiences of individuals within them? We understand transit as the movement of people, ideas, memories, or emotions, and what Jodi Byrd has described as “liminal existence” in “ungrievable spaces.” In what ways does the concept of "transit" model a rethinking of the relationship between individuals and postcolonial geographies? How does mobility constitute movement through both physical and ontological space?

Climate and Income Inequality

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017

DEADLINE APPROACHING:  For the C19 conference in Albuquerque in March 2018, I am seeking scholars to form a panel called "Climate and Income Inequality" -- a panel that addresses the literary representation of the conjunction of climate change and socioeconomic inequality. While environmental justice and environmental racism focus on low-income or minority communities who are forced to live near hazardous or toxic environments, I would like the panel to focus on how climate change specifically affects the poor.

Anthropogenic climate change is not an "equal opportunity" threat--the poor will suffer much more than the wealthy. Many American writers recognize this and address socioeconomic struggle alongside global warming. Since both wealth inequality and planetary warming are socially constructed forces of economics and politics, how do American writers narrate one in terms of the other in order to reveal and connect the dual exploitation of the poor and the earth? Upload 500-word proposals by September 1, 2017 to panel number 16744 "Clif-fi and Class" to https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/Login   questions to drosenthal@jcu.edu

This seminar seeks to explore the dialectical relationship between recent geopolitical crises and people’s responses to them. Once previous hermeneutical and epistemological frameworks and tools no longer work, global citizens need to devise original technologies to respond to and understand what are perceived as radically new experiences.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Performing The Early Modern English Woman (1500-1710): Seeing and Being Seen on the Domestic, Civic, and Dramatic Stage.

or Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
