The Global and the Intimate - SCMS panel proposal, March 2011, New Orleans

updated: 
Sunday, August 1, 2010 - 11:09pm
SCMS

With a focus on the transnational marginalized subject, this panel seeks to discuss various forms of performances where the subject emerges in its global entanglement. How do we grasp the idea of social, economic and political facets of global relations through the intimate experience of individual bodies-- particularly those of women and labor? How do we grasp "the intimate" (a set of relations, kinship, sexuality, corporeality, internal thought, speech, emotions, affect) through systems connected to global forces and like trade, profit; law, citizenship, and migration; cultural exchange, social movement, tourism?

Postfeminist Postmortems? Gender, Sexualities and Multiple Modernities (Annual Conference of the Department of English, Delhi Un

Feminisms and modernities have had a long and interlocked history. Now that we are, arguably, in a post-feminist, post-modern era, is it a fitting moment to stop and take stock of this critical encounter?
This provocation emerges out of a particular trajectory of debates, controversies and confrontations in gender studies over the past two decades. Judith Butler's Gender Trouble (1990) destabilised understandings of these interlocked categories about two decades after feminism emerged as a serious tool of critical inquiry. In 1990, also, Gayatri Spivak in The Postcolonial Critic re-located critical feminisms outside the Anglophone world.

Education systems across the world are becoming increasingly socially, ethnically and culturally diverse, both as a consequence of globalization and in response to internationalization.

However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to Education, including:

New Latin American Writing in the U.S. (9/30/10; NeMLA 4/7-10/2010, New Brunswick, New Jersey)

updated: 
Friday, July 23, 2010 - 3:33am
Bernabé Mendoza / NeMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association

In light of the recent critical reception of such authors as Roberto Bolaño and Junot Díaz, this panel seeks to ask, what constitutes a Latin American author today in the U.S.? How is s/he read? Fifty years after what was labeled as the "boom," how are we approaching new Latin American texts? Do we still adhere to a boom aesthetic, which insists on a fascination with local color and exoticism? Other questions to be considered include (but are not limited to): What do recent critiques reveal about our understanding and expectations of literary works written by Hispanic writers (writing in English, Spanish, or 'Spanglish')? How are Latin American authors and their texts marketed?
