CALL FOR PAPERS

Developing Mad Studies (NeMLA 2019: Mar. 21-24, 2019)

updated: 
Friday, June 29, 2018 - 10:43am
Hayley C. Stefan / Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Social perceptions of madness continually inform interpersonal and policy decisions in the US, notable of late in the shooting of unarmed, non-violent mad people of color; the use of mental “unfitness” to disparage Donald Trump; and the equation of madness with violence after school shootings. Contemporary discussions of how to surveil, restrict, and value those identified as “mad,” mentally and emotionally disabled, or distressed demonstrate the significance of Mad Studies work in the humanities.

NEMLA 2019| Bodies in Motion: Corporeality, Migrants, and Refugees

deadline for submissions:

As threat, as abject, as subject, and as a combination of all three, the figure of the migrant and the figure of the refugee loom large in the ethical imagination. The recent surge in desperate efforts of people to leave their homelands for other places, the Syrian refugee crisis, the mass displacement of the Rohingya, the “caravan” of Central American migrants seeking to cross the US-Mexico border, and of course the surge in anti-immigrant, and anti-migrant discourses all speak to the moral urgency of collective responses to these figures. It is one of the most pressing concerns of our current moment.

NEMLA 2019: Water as Transcultural Space

updated: 
Friday, June 29, 2018 - 10:58am
Délice Williams | NEMLA 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This year’s NEMLA conference includes focus on transnational spaces and “the complex processes of transculturation.” Since waterways such as oceans and rivers have historically been both media for and a contested sites of such processes, we invite panelists for a proposed session that will explore water and/as transcultural and transnational space. While we are particularly interested in exploring the cultural, political, and imaginative impulses that can work to turn waterways into transcultural spaces, we are equally interested in explorations of the forces that resist processes of transculturation.
