2011 Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (April 7-11, 2011])

2011 NeMLA Seminar Session seeks papers examining exchanges between American writers & the contemporary metropolis, from the late 20th- century to the present. Asking where & how American writers locate and/or represent urban space, we pose new questions at the intersections of American urban geography & literature: Is Detroit an exurb of Alabama? When will the Camden renaissance begin? Where do we catch the last train for Newark?

Seminar looks to reframe discussions of 21st-century American cityscape and its engagement with literature, theory & geography, by bringing consideration to notions such as displacement and the local. Send queries and abstracts to Michael Antonucci by 9/30/10

In The Future of Environmental Criticism, Lawrence Buell observes that "the concept of place gestures in at least three directions at once—toward environmental materiality, toward social perception or construction, and toward individual affect or bond," all of which makes it, a "rich and tangled arena for environmental criticism" (63).
