Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 2:29pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?

Global Literature in the Age of Trump

This roundtable endeavors to assess the influence of Donald Trump’s 2016 election on literature in the US and around the world.   Three avenues of inquiry will be featured. First, do the results of the 2016 election in the US clearly influence literature in the US or worldwide?   If so, what are the main traits of this influence?  Second, are there commonalities between writing in the US and writing elsewhere following the election?  Finally, focusing on non-US writing, are there perspectives or themes that are not at all present in US writing?  Is there a global voice after Trump’s election that does not exist in the United States?

Saturday, September 30, 2017

The panel will explore three questions: Is it possible to establish a precise relationship between Jacques Lacan and post-modernist literature in general? Can one isolate specific important themes in post-modernist literature and establish connections between these themes and Lacan? Focusing on the Oedipus conflict as it developed in Lacan, can one establish relationships between Lacan and post-modernist writers?

 

This panel has two underlying goals.

This roundtable will exchange perceptions and experiences on the state of comparative literature both in the US and worldwide today. Our session will explore the following questions:

· What are the methods of analysis that are specific to comparative literature?

· What are the concrete experiences of “comparistes” in their teaching and research today?

· How can teachers of comparative literature promote their area of interest in academia and the community? 

· What contributions can teachers and researchers in comparative literature make to creative curriculum develop today?

Teaching Disability: Global Approaches

updated: 
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 2:23pm
Northeast Modern Language Assocciation
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable explores three questions concerning the teaching of disability literature: Is there an ideal curriculum or canon of readings concerned disabled people? Are there cultural differences from country/region to country/region in either the representation or teaching of disability literature? Do experienced teachers of disability literature have lessons learned to share with their NeMLA colleagues?

 

As a comparative literature roundtable, we want to be as inconclusive as possible, looking at English and non-English authors, curricula, and approaches. The language of instruction in this roundtable but the chair will co-ordinate hands-outs and translations.
