NeMLA Panel - Literature, Theory, and Visual Arts: Hybrid Regimes in the 20th and 21st Century

updated: 
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 9:54am
50th NeMLA Annual Convention - SUNY University at Buffalo, Georgetown University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The panel invites theoretical reflections and/or case studies on questions of influence, convergence, correspondence, contagion, intertextuality, and cross-fertilization in the discourses of contemporary literature and literary criticism, critical theory, visual arts, and art criticism. Where, why, and how do (or may) the discourses of the three seemingly independent disciplines intersect? How has the vocabulary of one helped shape the conceptual tools of another? What new possibilities of interarts comparison does this hybridation open for the Comparative Literature of the 21st century?

In Search of the Canon: Poets and Artists Confronting with their Models (c. 1500-1700)

updated: 
Friday, July 27, 2018 - 1:09pm
The Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 12, 2018

The theory of Imitation was a central topic of discussion in the ‘Republic of Letters’. The European community of humanists, philosophers, poets and artists was engaged in the dispute over the models to refer to during the creative process. How to develop a normative canon as a reference point for artists and writers in the practice of Imitation? Which poets and artists to select as the examples of ‘bello stile’?

While the authority of ancient models was universally acknowledged, the building of a canon of modern masters was under discussion. One of the typical environments of this discussion were the Academies, where writers, artists, philosophers, antiquarians gathered around learned patrons.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Washington D.C. - 21-24 March, 2019

In “Further Considerations on Afrofuturism”, Kodwo Eshun argued that the impact of the Middle Passage and slavery could still be felt in African American authorship today. The erasure of their African past, culture and heritage leaving them disconnected and made strangers, black writers look to the future as a way of dealing and engaging with the present. The term counterfutures is thus used to describe those writings that explore the potentiality of a dissonant life that emerges from these traumas, ones which reimagine the futures that the current path of human experience seems to lead to, as well as the pasts that have or might catalyze real or imagined futures.
