Dealing with Academic Stress and Personal Crises
This board-sponsored roundtable aims to help NeMLA's members deal with academic stress and personal crises (e.g. divorce, death, serious health issues, caregiving, among other challenges). The goal of this roundtable is sharing helpful suggestions and strategies with the audience rather than telling personal stories. To ensure that participants represent different professional categories and that all types of crises are covered, interested participants are invited to submit their detailed 300- to 350-word proposals.

This panel considers the specific role of urban environments in imagining postcolonial subjects' relationship to the world. How and why do cities function as the locus for a cosmopolitan identity, while villages remain the bearers of tradition? How have discourses of globalization and environmental justice changed considerations of postcolonial subjectivity and environments in our century? What literary innovations have helped represent the sedimented historical landscapes of colonialism, global capitalism, and histories of devastation?

Food and Sustainability: Towards a Culinary Ecology, NeMLA April 2015

North East Modern Language Association
contact email: 

Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.

The Dickens Project

Recent critiques of the idea of the "Victorian" have included attention to both space and time, challenging both the temporal imperatives that follow, perhaps fetishistically, the contours of Victoria's reign, and the geographical isolation of a culture (or set of cultures) in which people went to war or opted for diplomacy; traded (or refused to trade) objects and ideas; translated and plagiarized the works of other cultures; embarked on journeys to discover rivers, love, self, or God; produced and abandoned formal and informal empires.
