In Moby-Dick, Ahab, the monomaniacal captain of the Pequod, famously iterates the following lines: “Hark ye yet again,—the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event—in the living act, the undoubted deed—there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask!” In this instance, Ahab might be seen as possessed by what John Dewey called philosophy’s endless “quest for certainty.” Thus, Ahab’s monomaniacal discourse can be said to turn on the appearance/reality distinction—a dichotomy germane to Western metaphysics since Plato.

Twenty Years after 'The Savage Detectives': On the Legacy of Roberto Bolaño (NeMLA 2018)

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the publication of Roberto Bolaño's novel, The Savage Detectives, we want to address the legacy of this Latin American author. We intend to discuss Bolaño's status in world literature today, as a "local" voice that was never very local, to begin with (he was a Chilean who produced most of his work in Mexico and Spain, and who included cosmopolitan references in all of his stories), but has certainly become "global" in the 21st century. Papers in English and Spanish will be considered.

Donald Trump's election as President of the United States on an openly anti-immigrant, and indeed anti-Mexican, platform constitutes a challenge for the field of border studies: What is border culture when the leader of the most powerful country in the world insists on closing the border? This panel aims to map the current state of the discourse(s) on and from the U.S.-Mexico border, including literature, film, journalism, and music. Papers in English and Spanish will be considered.
