This panel will explore the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love and affections expressed by Latin American authors. Its purpose is to create a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would also be considered.

51st NeMLA Convention | March 5-8, 2020 | Boston, MA

Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences' expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and analytical tool to explore questions not only of sexual difference, but also of sexual orientation, race, class, or culture.

Music & Death: 2nd Interdisciplinary Global Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 4, 2019

The death of a lover, child, spouse, partner, parent, friend is the loss of someone unique and irreplaceable – a presence in our lives never to be seen, held, heard or felt again. The tragic loss of familiar, iconic, well loved public figures and celebrities, the unexpected deaths of people through murder, violence or terrorism, heart rending loss through illness, disease or natural disasters all remind us of the fragility and vulnerability of our lives. In times like these music is often our companion providing comfort in the incomprehensibility of loss.
