While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.

In 2012, Germany became the second largest immigration country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, after the United States. As numbers of migrants to the EU continue to climb, debates about Germany’s status as an Einwanderungsland have become increasingly charged. The complex effects of this most recent experience are far from unprecedented in Germany’s national history, however. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Germany witnessed dramatic shifts not only in its population and national borders, but also in its notions of belonging, citizenship and foreignness.

CFP NeMLA 2017: "Queer and Now": Queerness in the Mainstream

updated: 
Wednesday, August 17, 2016 - 12:32pm
North East Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

On or about June 26, 2015, human character changed. As late as 1991, Eve Sedgwick observed that being queer at that time still meant being someone whose life did not matter and whose very survival was highly uncertain (“Queer and Now”). Yet, our contemporary “now” is a moment which has seen same sex marriage declared a federal right; openly queer persons appear as comedians, TV reporters and characters on shows, in films and recently on the musical stage. No longer “apparitional” in Terry Castle’s well-known sense, queers of the current moment might not be confined to haunting the margins of the social imaginary.

Cyberqueer Strategies in Contemporary Art, Film and Media - panel

This is a call for proposals on cyberqueer strategies in contemporary art, film and media.

The importance given to spatial configuration in relation to technology in contemporary art and film scholarship points to the fact that cyberspace is no longer viewed as an intangible software entity or space outside our physical reality. Instead, it is understood as a pervasive presence imbedded within our DNA.  Many contemporary artists and filmmakers who have grown up with the Internet have labeled their artistic practice “post-Internet,” in order to articulate this cultural shift.

 

Trans Atlantic Shell Shock

Trans Atlantic Shell Shock
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock (a term that this volume understands as denoting specifically mental trauma unique to World War I), greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This proposed peer-reviewed comparative collection seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.
