Highbrow, Lowbrow, No-brow: Research and Aesthetic Values in the Humanities

Monday, September 10, 2018 - 9:51am
Humanities Education and Research Association [HERA]
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

Call for creative proposals for NeMLA 2018 in Washington D.C. March 21-24, 2019.

This creative session asks participants to write through a Portuguese and/or Canadian perspective in regards to borders, postcolonialism, saudade or 'the North'. The work focuses on understandings of these themes; the idea is to bring together a blend a contemporary national and/or personal views. The participant should write on either Portugal or Canada; there can be a Luso-Canadian view but this is not required for all entries. The goal is to understand and question nationhood through geography (landscapes), politics (economy), and culture (the self and the community).

There are many ways in which humor manifests itself in Cuban and Cuban American literature and performance, and there are many reasons why. This humor, often referred to as choteo, frequently serves as more than mere comic relief and can express a criticism of a social, political, economic, and/or cultural concern both on the island and in the diaspora.
