Conference Theme:
Voices

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.

[DEADLINE] Redefining Masculinity in 20th-Century British Popular Fiction and Culture: Sep. 30, 2009.

updated: 
Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 7:16pm
full name / name of organization: 
NEMLA 2010
contact email: 

This panel will examine redefinitions of masculinity that challenge and intersect with global and national relations. Since conceptions of British masculinity had been shaped by a longstanding culture of empire and its agenda, the shift from an imperial to a decolonized Britain and the impact of the World Wars make the 20th-century a particularly ripe period for inquiries into concomitant reformulations of masculinity in popular culture and literature.Genres may include adventure tales, comics, war/espionage fiction, graphic novels, sci-fi, fantasy, and film. Please submit a 300 word abstract to mcartt@sage.edu.

American memory of WWII: adding the European "Second Generation" to the historical narrative

updated: 
Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 12:23pm
full name / name of organization: 
Dr. Krystyna T. Zamorska

I am compiling a collection of "second generation" academic memoir essays by those who were born and raised in post-Second World War Eastern Europe, particularly Poland, and are now academics or scholars in US institutions.

If possible, we can begin by convening a group of scholars (Polish, Polish American, and others with East-European roots) who are descendants of victims of German crimes in German-occupied Europe. (Tri-state area?)Those who have already done research in this area are particularly welcome. The goal is to expand the dominant American narrative of WWII, shaped during the Cold War.
