Irish Literature Panel: SCMLA

Monday, March 13, 2017 - 9:28am
Anna Stone/South Central Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

In her poem, "The Lost Land," Eavan Boland declares that  

 . . . memory itself  
has become an emigrant  
wandering in a place  
where love dissembles itself as landscape.  

From Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels to Colm Toibin's Brooklyn, Irish literature has always been especially concerned with travel, migration, and the fluidity of national boundaries. This panel seeks papers that examine migration, immigration, diaspora, and displacement in Irish texts.



Documents in Human Life: Fresh Approaches

Proceedings from the Document Academy
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 12, 2017

Documents play roles in all aspects of human life. Recognizing this, the Document Academy seeks to celebrate and explore documents beyond traditional and formal academic research publications. We take inspiration from works such as Pablo Neruda's odes to common things and memoir essays telling the stories of particular documents, such as “The Money,” by Junot Diaz. Such approaches have the capacity to illuminate aspects of reality that are overlooked by traditional academic research.
