Popular Indian cinema has witnessed a steady rise in the production of movies related to terrorism and threat to national security since 2001. While critically and aesthetically examining the perpetual threats that India lives under, these movies have successfully captured the jingoistic fervor and pride that have repeatedly trumped such adversity. In addition, Bollywood's focus has interestingly shifted from cross-border terrorism to the global terrorism revolving around America and her allies, their insurgencies in the Middle East and the subsequent tremors felt everywhere, especially by Indian expatriates.

"Infamous Form" (EC/ASECS 11/1-11/3, Baltimore)

East Central/ American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

Samuel Johnson may have been wrong about the staying power of Tristram Shandy, but it's nevertheless clear that some of the eighteenth century's oddest works didn't "do long." Prompted by renewed attention to these oddities, this panel seeks papers that theorize the experimental novel of eighteenth-century Britain. Must the experimental novel be defined against the emergent realist novel? What texts might comprise the experimental canon? What contemporary discourses (scientific? philosophical? commercial? political?) might help us to understand these forms? (Papers that reject the term "experimental novel" with disgust also welcome!)

Proposals deadline: 1 July 2012

Confirmed plenary speakers: Elena Gualtieri (University of Groningen), Mette Gieskes (Radboud University Nijmegen)

Clement Greenberg once famously said, "photography is closer today to literature than it is to the other graphic arts". Yet what makes photography so close to literature? And what about the interactions between literature and other visual arts? Are some combinations indeed more productive than others? And what happens when literature and the visual arts meet?

Negotiating Latinidades, Understanding Identities within Space

Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 4:51pm
NeMLA /Sponsored by Tufts University /March 21-24, 2013

The negotiation of Latin@ identities within space—cities, universities, homes, exile, —requires an understanding of ethnicities, language(s), religion(s), social class, gender, as well as the psychological spaces where one needs to defend him/herself in the face of a pejorative labels from the dominant group or from a more powerful member of one's own group. How do Latino/a authors represent their worlds through the use of space whereby each character or voice must negotiate his/her identity markers within a specific space to claim "self-recognition"?

Papers that address any aspect of Latino/a identity in narrative, poetry or theatre are welcome for this panel.
