Lana Lin/Society for Cinema and Media Studies

The siting of the 2016 SCMS conference in Atlanta (3/30-4/3/16), where the Audre Lorde papers are housed at Spelman College, provides an ideal opportunity to convene a panel that addresses Lorde's investment in the intersections of race, gender, class, ability, age, and power. This panel seeks scholars, media makers, activists, and educators who have made use of the Audre Lorde archive, both at Spelman and at large, to examine the impact of the Black lesbian feminist poet's ideas on the contemporary moment.

NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La sessione si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo. Si prega di inviare una proposta di 250 parole entro il 30 Settembre 2015 a https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/cfp scegliendo la sessione 15888.

The City in Quarantine--abstract due 9/30/15, conference 3/17-20, 2016

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

In William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton's problematic play Timon of Athens, the fate of Athens hangs in the balance as the eponymous character threatens the city with literal and figurative diseases from outside its walls. Timon thus embodies a nightmarishly pathogenic force, sending forth plagues and venereal diseases to "thatch your poor thin roofs/With burthens of the dead" (V.iii.143-145), even as the city's gates bar his physical entrance. Although Timon of Athens has traditionally been regarded as an anti-corruption allegory, the play thus presents fruitful opportunities for examination through the lens of quarantine and urban containment.
