(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling (9/30/2011; NeMLA 3/15-18/2012, Rochester, NY)

(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling



If "disco is dead" and "hip-hop is in crisis" then what do we make of renewed and continued interest in these genres--and how are disco and hip-hop relevant to literary texts? Recent scholarship on disco culture (by Alice Echols, Peter Shapiro, Tim Lawrence, and Vince Aletti) and critical studies about hip-hop culture (by Tricia Rose, Bakari Kitwana, Adam Bradley, Gwendolyn Pough, and Jeff Chang) insist on examining the complexities within these musical genres, their cultures, and descendents.

Transatlantic Gender-Crossings: Masquerade, Transvestitisms & the Carnivalesque / NeMLA, March 15-18, 2012, Rochester, NY

This panel seeks papers on gender-crossings in fiction and drama by authors on both sides of the Atlantic. Topics might include a variety of literary and performative crossings, which transgress and re-imagine gender roles, or challenge the notion of discrete binaries of gender and sexuality. Of particular interest are papers that explore the ways in which literary masquerades, transvestitisms, and carnivalesque versions of gender or sexual identity intersect with issues of race, class, and national identity.
