How do individuals negotiate the social world when their bodies do not clearly fit defined hegemonic frameworks such as: male/female, various racial binaries, gay/straight, citizen/non-citizen, able-bodied/disabled, natural/unnatural, and other binaries? This roundtable will examine representations of the body in the context of alterity and otherness in twentieth- and twenty-first century American literature and culture.

Modern Money: Aesthetics after the Gold Standard; October 23 - 24 , 2014; Guest Speaker: Yanis Varoufakis

"Money is the root form of representation in bourgeois society." So T. J. Clark put it in 1999. Almost aphoristic in its phrasing, the sentence turns on the set of questions it raises – about markets and money flows, about value and abstraction, about whom money belongs to, about the "social reality of the Sign" and the effect money has on artmaking. Money becomes a central form – maybe the central form – of life, inescapable and intractable. The conditions that shape our present and the failure of the Left to devise a practicable response have only intensified the urgency of the proposition and the questions that ground its pivot.

How do writers make creative use of archives? How do such encounters occasion new modes and genres of storytelling? What happens when archival materials become the expression of the writing itself? This session seeks cross-genre writers working with archival materials (found, family, public) to create multimedia texts. In this 'show-and-tell' session, presenters are invited to share projects and reflect on questions of process and method.

Upload 250- to 300-word abstracts with relevant links to work samples at https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15335.

Food and Sustainability: Towards a Culinary Ecology [April 30-May 3, 2014]

Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.

Call for Critical Writing on the Gurlesque

GURLESQUE: 2nd edition

In the anthology Gurlesque: the new grrly, grostesque, burlesque poetics (Saturnalia, 2010), editors Lara Glenum and Arielle Greenberg gathered work from eighteen contemporary women poets who are "writing about and through femininity . . . brashly, playfully, provocatively, indulgently." These poems have "unicorns in them, and sequins, and swear words, and vomit." Gurlesque also includes eight visual artists whose work, like Gurlesque poetry, "assaults the norms of acceptable female behavior by irreverently deploying gender stereotypes to subversive ends."

This panel seeks papers for the NEMLA conference, Toronto, April 30- May 3 2015 that show how arrangements of words contribute to poetic forms and sensibilities. Lexical arrangements include, say, words paired together, compounds, similes, and metaphors. Sensibilities, evocative of worlds imagined within and elsewhere, may characterize the work of a poet, a period, or cultural differences.
The overall theses invited, then, involve exploring in British or American poetry the interplay between lexical choices and patterns, poetic forms, and evocative sensibilities. Panels chairs Eugene Green and Carol Kountz. . Please submit your abstract by September 30 to nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15063

Engaging with the Poetics of Peripheralization

Northeast Modern Language Association 2015 Conference Toronto

According to Hosam Aboul-Ela, the poetics of peripheralization differ from those of modernism: while both manifest similarly at the level of the text through experimental techniques, the former engages with the political histories and economies of peripheral regions. This panel explores the ways in which the literature of the Global South combines modernist aesthetics and a commitment to exposing the traumas and violence resulting from colonialism. How does this literature use the poetics of peripheralization to challenge structures of power?
