Novels of the Great War: A Reassessment

updated: 
Friday, May 24, 2019 - 9:05am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This session attempts to examine novels of the Great War in light of over one-hundred years of reading, reflection, and criticism.  

We will use a broad notion of "novel":  novels written during and in the wake of World War I; novels written long after the war ended; and novels written today. 

 Furthermore, we welcome novels written from non-European writers and from authors from countries who did not participate in the Great War.  While the language of the conference is English, because this is primarily a comparative literature session, working directly in a language other than English is both permitted and welcomed.

Diva: Hip-Hop, Feminism, Fierceness

The shift from the margins to the mainstream has occurred simultaneously, over the last few decades, for two groups that now jointly exert a central influence over contemporary culture and politics: female r’n’b and hip-hop artists, and feminist thinkers and activists. The coming together of these two groups and sensibilities has redefined contemporary popular music (in all senses of musics of black origin), and wider culture and politics, in the West – from the banlieues to the White House, from Black Lives Matter to #MeToo, from Betty Davis to Neneh Cherry, TLC to Aaliyah, Alicia Keys to Iggy Azalea, Beyonce to Ariana Grande, and all points in between.
