Material Culture Area

The study of material culture offers an exciting area for interdisciplinary research and conversation, as it brings together those engaged in scholarly inquiry in areas as diverse as history, art history, design, decorative arts, cultural studies, consumer studies, literature, communications, anthropology, and sociology. If your work touches on the study of designed objects and consumer goods, we would love to learn more about it at this year's conference in San Antonio. Academics, practitioners, graduate students, museum professionals, and public historians are welcome.

"Interdisciplinary Studies and Women Modernists" Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 7-10 April, 2011.

updated: 
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 5:31pm
Laurel Harris, CUNY Graduate Center

In her recent anthology _Gender in Modernism_, Bonnie Kime Scott opens the literary field to include disciplines previously left out of the modernist frame such as dance, painting, cinema, and the sciences. In doing so, Scott broadens the scope of modernism and, in particular, provides new angles of inquiry into the work of women literary modernists. This panel will further explore this interdisciplinary move, asking how, and to what effect, we might bring the insights of other disciplines to bear on questions of gender in literary modernism. How did visual, aural, and performative art forms influence the work of modernist women writers?

Hando No Kuzushi - Asian American Literature E-Zine

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 4:20pm
Hando No Kuzushi

Hando No Kuzushi, an online literary journal, is gearing up for its third issue, tentatively scheduled to be posted at the end of September. We are seeking poetry, short works of fiction and non-fiction - and even academic essays - that pertain to the Asian American experience in 21st Century America. There is no set deadline.

For a better idea of what we are looking for, visit our website at hnkuzushi.blogspot.com. A judo term, Hando No Kuzushi denotes the unsettling of balance through reaction. That sounds about right to us...

All submissions must be emailed to Quinata.Delgado@gmail.com. We will do our best to respond within a few days.

Thanks!

[update] Medical Visions of Modernism

updated: 
Tuesday, August 24, 2010 - 2:50pm
42nd Annual NeMLA, New Brunswick, NJ at Rutgers University

The emerging disciplines of psychology, neurology, phrenology, and finally psychoanalysis at the end of the nineteenth century supplied the modernist project in literature with new perspectives of the human subject and also with new languages, new idioms and vocabularies with which to describe the structure of subjectivity and its images, perceptions, and sensations. This panel seeks to explore the relationship between emerging medical disciplines and Modernism. We are particularly interested in papers which explore the role of language--and its limits--in articulating illness in literary fiction, medical treatises, and film studies.
