Northeast MLA

Scholarship on women's writing on the First World War has helped recover important texts that give us insight on the important roles women played as nurses and ambulance drivers. This panel seeks papers that examine the ways in which women depicted their new jobs. How did these new jobs affect their views on their gender? What about their responsibilities as citizens? And, how do these texts help change our views on the First World War?

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology (NeMLA 2016) Sept 30 Deadline

Sunday, June 28, 2015 - 4:21pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 47th Annual NeMLA Convention March 17-20, 2016 Hartford, CT

This panel means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary American poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow's notion of entanglement, i.e., a "condition of overlapping recurrences," the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena. It thus brings occurrences together through affinity and disjunction alike and offers a powerful paradigm to think about mediation in relation to complex networks and loop interactions.

Gender Politics in 20th-century British Drama -- NeMLA, March 17-20, 2016, Hartford, CT

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 2:46pm
Oscar Bojorquez - California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

The aims of this panel are to discuss and inform on the topic of gender politics of 20th-century English drama. The politics regard a total shift from the previous format of plays. Due mainly to the women's movement in society, many changes started to take place. Prior themes centering around a male-dominated world have given way to themes of men's abuse of power, sexual politics, pain, physical and psychological torture, general feminist themes, sexual desire and redemptive love just to name a few. The existence of cross-gender casting also makes its appearance in force. Two important playwrights who have made names for "women" in their work are Caryl Churchill and Sarah Kane.
