Queer Oceans Panel

updated: 
Friday, September 22, 2017 - 8:48am
NeMLA Convention 2018 Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel, titled Queer Oceans, seeks abstracts for papers that explore the ocean in relation to queer studies. The sea has frequently been idealized as a place for escaping the norms that bind life on land. From sodomitic pirates to the famous spermaceti scene in Moby-Dick, the sea often emerges in suggestively queer contexts. However, discussions of these queer possibilities rarely take into account the nautical setting in which they occur.

Imagining Other Worlds: Setting in Early Modern English Drama

Every play imagines its own world—but the worlds they imagine must in some way connect with their audience. This panel invites perspectives on early modern English drama that considers the balance between these two poles: the imagined world of the setting and its connection to the surrounding culture in early modern England. This balance is particularly important in early modern English drama for both historical reasons—an increased awareness of other worlds and their different reality within the expanding cultural purview of the early modern English—and literary ones—since so much criticism of these plays has focused on their relation to early modern England itself to the exclusion of their frequently quite disparate settings.

Call for papers---The Contested Space of Arab Spring (NeMLA 2018)

Deadline for submission: September 30, 2017

Northeast Modern Language Association: University of Pittsburg, PA, April 12-15, 2018

Chair: Joan Listernick

 

Protesting against corruption and dictatorship in favor of democracy, men and women poured onto the streets during the brief, but historically critical period of the Arab Spring. This potential watershed has produced a literary tide reflecting on its significance, a tide itself waiting to be explored. This panel will examine how contemporary literature has viewed the emancipatory possibility of the Arab Spring-- as a moment of historic exceptionalism or a slumbering ember.

Masculinity in Women’s Literature

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennett can never match the resourcefulness of his wife in her attempts to settle their five daughters in life; Edgar Linton in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is a caricature of manliness; in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, an only daughter, Molly Gibson, proves to be a better child to her father than a son, Osborne Hamley, who fails his parents; George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss presents Maggie Tulliver as a far stronger, braver and tougher character than her brother Tom.
