Emily Dickinson International Society at ALA 2014

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 2:58pm
Paraic Finnerty (University of Portsmouth) / EDIS

The 2014 American Literature Association Annual Conference(ALA) will be held in Washington, D.C., May 22-25, 2014.

The Emily Dickinson International Society will sponsor two sessions at the ALA:

1) Transatlantic Dickinson
We welcome papers that consider Dickinson as a writer whose life and work question the convention of reading nineteenth-century US literature in isolation from its British counterpart, and demonstrate the importance of taking a comparative approach. For example, panellists might examine the influence of British literature, culture and history on Dickinson, or the reception of Dickinson's work in Britain.

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 9:59am
NEMLA 45th Annual Convention (Harrisburg PA, April 3-6))

This panel seeks a broad range of papers exploring how disability challenges normative constructions of the body-environment dyad. For example, how does disability-centered American literature negotiate the relationship between embodiment and emplacement? How might literature by people with disabilities contribute to a more inclusive ecocriticism? How might we re-examine 'canonical' American environmental literature through a disability studies lens?

Gender studies is an interdisciplinary field of academic study on the issues of gender in its social and cultural contexts. Since its emergence from feminism, gender studies have become one of the most deliberated disciplines. The following project aims at an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and perspectives on the issues of femininities and masculinities in the 21st century. It invites ground-breaking research on a plethora of topics connected with gender, to propose an interdisciplinary view of the frontiers and to stake out new territories in the study of femininities and masculinities.
