Sustaining Circum-Atlantic Movements in African-American Literature: SAMLA (7-9 Nov. 2014)

updated: 
Thursday, May 1, 2014 - 3:30pm
SAMLA: African-American Literature

This panel invites papers that examine circum-Atlantic movement and cultures in contemporary African-American literature. Although earlier works (such as Zora Neale Hurston's Tell My Horse and Alice Walker's The Color Purple) have produced a wealth of discussions about exchanges between US, Caribbean, and African places and cultures, we are especially interested in essays that address how recent African-American works have sustained, portrayed, and/or problematized depictions of circum-Atlantic cultural exchanges and movements. By June 1, 2014, please submit a 250-500 word abstract, a brief bio, and A/V requirements to Amy K. King, University of Mississippi, at amykatherineking at gmail.com.

Peripheries of Modernism – MSA 16 (Nov 6-9, 2014, Pittsburgh, PA)

Lauren Benjamin/ University of Michigan

Since at least the early 1990s, the transnational turn in Modernist Studies has necessitated a re-thinking of Modernism's traditional boundaries. Propelled by feminist reevaluations of the canon, as well as minority discourses about visibility, New Modernist Studies ask us to think more broadly about Modernism and modernity. This panel seeks to investigate the ways in which various scholars navigate the peripheries of Modernism. For this panel, "peripheries" are broadly defined as texts, movements, or authors previously or currently unincorporated into the traditional canon. How do authors' national identifications relate to other identities, religious, ethnic, or cultural?

Belinda Wheeler / Paine College

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays examining the works of Australia's leading Aboriginal authors, Kim Scott and Alexis Wright. Both authors have won countless awards, including Australia's prestigious Miles Franklin Award, Scott in 2000 (Benang) and 2011 (That Deadman Dance), and Wright in 2006 (Carpentaria) and currently on the longlist for 2014 (The Swan Book). Despite national and international acclaim for their literary contribution, there is currently no comprehensive critical companion that contextualizes these authors' works for scholars, students (undergraduate and graduate), and general readers.

Carved from the Mountains: Defining Sustainability in the Appalachian Region

In following with the SAMLA 86 theme of "Sustainability and the Humanities," this session will explore the idea of sustainability as it relates to the Appalachian region. How can we define sustainability in the region? How have sustainable resources and agriculture shaped Appalachian literature and culture? How have conflicts about the idea of sustainability—do we sustain our mountaintop environments or sustain our jobs?—played a role in Appalachian literature and culture? In what ways can sustainability be seen outside its traditional environmental and economical terms? How has Appalachian literature aided or hindered the sustainability of Appalachian cultural values, religious beliefs, regional dialect—even Appalachian stereotypes?
