deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

FINAL CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Diversity, which in the US and UK had initially been associated with and largely confined to the areas of employment and college admissions, has recently taken center stage, most dramatically with the seating of the US House of Representatives on 2 January and the Golden Globes film awards 4 days later. Despite the gains, diversity remains a contentious issue even in an area associated with progressivism: the arts in general (the Golden Globes notwithstanding) and literature in particular. Case in point: Lionel Shriver’s article in the 9 June 2018 issue of The Spectator in which the US novelist attacked Penguin Random House UK’s newly announced diversity statement.

The Power and Limits of Narrative in Opposing Injustice

Literature, film, and other forums for bearing witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations. As such, narratives of witness have the power to connect people across divisions of nation, culture, and experience. They may contribute to shared national and even transnational identities.

NeMLA 2020 Seminar

Boston, March 5-8, 2020

This seminar seeks to explore the current engagements with "New Sincerity" in literature from Central and Eastern Europe. It expands the geographic borders of discourses on "New Sincerity" by moving beyond the North American and post-Soviet contexts. It also aims to examine the changes to the "New Sincerity" aesthetic in an age of "post-truth" and more than two decades after David Foster Wallace’s call for writers who are "too sincere."
