Aarhus University, Denmark, December 4-6, 2014
Keynotes: Pierre Alféri, Claudia Benthien, Virginia Jackson and Yoko Tawada.
How do individuals negotiate the social world when their bodies do not clearly fit defined hegemonic frameworks such as: male/female, various racial binaries, gay/straight, citizen/non-citizen, able-bodied/disabled, natural/unnatural, and other binaries? This roundtable will examine representations of the body in the context of alterity and otherness in twentieth- and twenty-first century American literature and culture. Roundtable Stacie McCormick and Shelagh Patterson.

Thinking and Writing Beyond Two Cultures:
STEM, WAC/WID, and the Changing Academy
The first few years of the twentieth-first century have witnessed social unrest, revolts and revolutions across the world: the Arab Spring, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, riots of workers and peasants in China, anti-austerity demonstrations in Europe, blood-shedding confrontations in Ukraine, and, more recently, the Sunflower Movement or Occupy Legislature in Taipei. They are triggered by either violent actions of the police and the army, governments' decisions, or electoral controversies; they demand shifts of power and systemic transformations, or simply struggle for the basic rights of existence. In these heydays of insurrection, we cannot help asking: what is going on? What is happening to us, fascinated, shocked, devastated, aphasic or garrulous?
Title: Picturing the Eighteenth-Century Novel Through Time: Illustration, Intermediality and Adaptation
Call for Articles
This panel seeks papers that explore existentialism in African-American thought that predates the codification of the term by Jean-Paul Sartre in the post-World War II period. The premise of this panel explicitly makes the case for the genealogy of African-American existentialist thought, tracing and situating it as a proto-existential literature. Revisiting such literary works prior to World War II will illustrate a rich tradition of African-American existentialist thought.
Please submit your abstract by September 30 to nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15063
