deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This year’s NEMLA conference includes focus on transnational spaces and “the complex processes of transculturation.” Since waterways such as oceans and rivers have historically been both media for and a contested sites of such processes, we invite panelists for a proposed session that will explore water and/as transcultural and transnational space. While we are particularly interested in exploring the cultural, political, and imaginative impulses that can work to turn waterways into transcultural spaces, we are equally interested in explorations of the forces that resist processes of transculturation.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel will examine what it means to re-imagine a region of the world that continues to occupy the imaginations of, among others, artists and scholars, vacation goers and/or environmentalists. The islands of the Pacific, for instance, were regarded by colonial explorers from Europe as utopias untouched by humankind. Beginning in the twentieth century, some islands were used as military testing sites by the United States and Europe with no regard for the Indigenous people of these locations. And most recently, as literary theorist Aimee Bhang explains, the Pacific “is laden with speculation, mostly of two kinds: one that anticipates the economic potential of the ‘Asian century,’ and another that projects its ecological devastation” (663).

This year Brighton’s Big Read welcomes author Moshin Hamid to read from his Booker shortlisted novel Exit West (2017)To coincide with this event Brighton’s C21 Research invites papers on representations of refugees in contemporary writing. Focusing on work that is written by and about refugees we seek papers that examine the varied ways that refugeeness is represented in the contemporary moment. We encourage contributors to consider what is at stake in these representations. What are the relations between textual representation and real-world refugees? How does the act of writing enact or trouble the conditions of hospitality, exclusion and/or risk that shape the refugee experience?
