Positionality: Place, Race, and Revolution in Indigenous Women’s Identity

Friday, September 1, 2017 - 7:27am
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 25, 2017


This NeMLA panel will focus on the ways women have transformed space and place as central to their creation of a self-determined identity. In particular, it will focus on indigenous women’s relationship to geography and gender in the construction of self. Such an autonomous identity subverts the societal expectations and cultural geographies that have forced definitions of race and gender upon 19th- and 20th-century women. This panel would be an intersection of cultural geography, indigenous and ethnic studies, social justice issues, and eco/feminism.

Call for papers---The Contested Space of Arab Spring (NeMLA 2018)

Deadline for submission: September 30, 2017

Northeast Modern Language Association: University of Pittsburg, PA, April 12-15, 2018

Chair: Joan Listernick


Protesting against corruption and dictatorship in favor of democracy, men and women poured onto the streets during the brief, but historically critical period of the Arab Spring. This potential watershed has produced a literary tide reflecting on its significance, a tide itself waiting to be explored. This panel will examine how contemporary literature has viewed the emancipatory possibility of the Arab Spring-- as a moment of historic exceptionalism or a slumbering ember.
