We are pleased to announce that the 27th annual Lavender Languages and Linguistics Conference will take place at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA on 27-29 March 2020. The Conference has a rich history of examining language use and representation in relation to LGBTQ+ life, including linguistics, sociolinguistics, (critical) discourse analysis, and the analysis of communication in various text genres, modes and media, as well as research into historical, literary, or performance questions. While the language of presentation is English, research concerning languages other than English is welcomed and encouraged.

Somatexts: Tattoos as Technology, Bodies as Text

Whereas most people employ more temporary “sign vehicles” (Goffman 1959) such as haircuts, make-up, and clothing as forms of signification that can be revised in relation to cultural shifts, the relative permanence of tattoos as a technology of body modification complicates the mobility needed by tattooed bodies to negotiate their significatory space, even as such tattoos have the potential to “speak” multiple meanings across various modes of non-verbal transmission, or become the impetus for queer or non-normative kinship.

Graduate programs are primarily configured to equip students with the tools to thrive within an economy of knowledge production, but such a pedagogical framework takes for granted the structural inclusion of opportunities for developing competencies that are corollary to academic skills. Many of these competencies—planning and organization, collaborative management, transparent communicativeness, fiscal accountability, conflict resolution, stress tolerance, tactful coaching and active mentorship, to name a few—are increasingly being valued as essential for workplace success and leadership.

The Role of Violence in Latin American Audiovisual Media (NeMLA 2020)

updated:

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Latin America is, according to the Washington Post, the most violent region in the world. It is no wonder then that a great deal of its cultural production depicts this everyday reality. This session welcomes papers in English or Spanish dealing with the representation of violence in recent Latin American audiovisual media (films, telenovelas, videoclips) and pondering how they reflect or reproduce, criticize or reinforce, the actual violence pervasive throughout the region.

Please submit a 300-word abstract and brief biographical statement by September 30, 2019 directly through NeMLA's system: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/18256

No one escapes Marvel’s Endgame: the economic and cultural impact of the past few decades’ boom in superhero movies, and more broadly superhero narratives, is evident well beyond the boundaries of the United States. In fact, the presence and influence of American comic-book superheroes abroad started shortly after the debut of DC's Superman in 1938, and has been growing ever since.

Despite an increasingly grim job market outlook, the humanities continues to produce PhDs in large numbers. Between 2007 and 2017, the number of available Assistant Professor positions in the field of English dropped from 879 to 320. During the same time period, the number of non-tenure-track positions increased from 21% to 34%. Yet in 2016, 5,500 doctorates were still awarded despite the massive post-2008 decrease in obtainable positions.
