Writing Ireland: Identity, Memory, and Place

In keeping with the special focus of SAMLA 85, we welcome papers that focus on the ways Irish identity, space, and memory are shaped through conventionally understood literary genres (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir) as well as work from related fields, including but not limited to art, critical theory, folklore, and film studies. This panel seeks to address recent trends in scholarship and the ways Irish identity (systemic or individual) and space are constructed and defined.

By June 1, 2013, please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to Sarah Dyne, Georgia State University, at sdyne1@gsu.edu

Albany State University Department of English, Modern Languages, and Mass Communication.

In Hip Hop Wars, Tricia Rose argues that, "Hip Hop has become a primary means by which we talk about race in the United States." Rose's insight delves into the historical evolution of the genre and the sociological progression of the movement called Hip Hop. More importantly, Rose's inquiry of Hip Hop admits that Hip Hop has become an important apparatus by which critics, scholars, and artists can engage and examine the American social, personal, public, and private landscapes.

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 7:19pm
SAMLA Chairpersons

Chairpersons of the 2012-2014 SAMLA 9/11 and Literature special sessions seek high quality, previously unpublished submissions to supplement a strong collection of essays emerging from the 2012 and 2013 annual SAMLA conventions, entitled New Narratives of Disaster and Crisis: Reflecting on 9/11in the Obama Era. The aim of this collection is to open discussion on a new wave of cultural response to 9/11 and we invite scholarly essays (6,000-7,000 words) on topics relating to the newer representations and/or interpretations of 9/11, including both visual and literary texts. These representations have moved beyond the commemorative and heroic becoming increasingly reflexive and politicized.

All Kinds of Music is Pouring Out of Me: Living Large and Feeling Big in Musical Theatre Performance and Reception

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 9:41am
American Society for Theatre Research

When the eponymous Sweet Charity (1966) realizes somebody loves her, not only does the scene shift from dialogue into song, but she, self-reflexively, acknowledges the largeness of her emotional response, singing, "Now I'm a brass band," conjuring an ensemble of dancers, and proceeding to sing and dance in celebration. Such moments in musical theatre are at the heart of the form's appeal for many spectators (including but not limited to bullied, closeted, or marginalized spectators), allowing them to vicariously live large, and loud, for the duration of the musical, and sometimes beyond.
