[UPDATE} NeMLA 2013 CFP: Queer Self-Representation: It Isn't All About Me

updated: 
Monday, September 17, 2012 - 12:01am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the significance and radical potential of queer self-representation.The personal continues to be political, and for queer constituencies whose representation by a dominant mainstream has been either absent, negative, or consistently rife with limiting stereotypes, self-representation becomes crucial. However, while queer self-representation may engage with such negative representation, it is not limited to this function.

[UPDATE] Word and Image (NeMLA Boston 2013, deadline September 30, 2012)

Word and Image
Northeast Modern Language Association
Boston, MA March 21-24, 2013

This panel considers the interplay between word and image in works of literature, or in works that defy categorization as either fiction or nonfiction. How does photography function as an "effet de réel" in works by André Breton or W. G. Sebald, for example? How do ekphrastic texts function in relation to an absent visual "other"? Please send 300-word abstracts to Gillian Pierce (gpierce@bu.edu)

Breac: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies [Papers Due October 22nd]

Breac: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new, peer-reviewed global journal of Irish Studies later this fall.

The journal will be called Breac: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies. As some of you may know, breac is the Irish word for "trout" but also "speckled," and it is this latter sense of the word that we think particularly captures the spirit and themes of the journal. We are interested in thinking about Ireland's culture, history and literature in a global context with methodologies that are inter- and multidisciplinary. The journal will be entirely digital with a forum section that aims to cultivate an open, global conversation about the published articles.
