Vice and Assimilation in American Literature - NeMLA - Harrisburg, PA (April 3-6, 2014)

updated: 
Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 8:51am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel seeks papers that explore narratives wherein the process of assimilation is completed through vice rather than through the virtues of hard-work and persistence. By 'vice', we do not necessarily mean violent and/or criminal activities (although we are open to such topics) but rather forms of leisure that are oftentimes un-associated with tales of assimilation, such as drinking, gambling or adultery. Some foundational questions we will ask are: how does this alternative mode of assimilation affect the character's chances of successfully becoming an American citizen? Moreover, what does this reveal about the character's definition of 'citizen'?

Currents of the Black Atlantic, ESA 2014 Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 7:44am
CUNY Graduate Center English Student Association

Two decades since its publication, Paul Gilroy's _The Black Atlantic_ (1993) united conversations about race, diaspora, modernity, and slavery within the Atlantic world. As its point of departure, the conference theme takes after Gilroy's ethos of looking outside of established racial and nationalist categories. Conference participants will look within and beyond disciplinary boundaries. By revisiting the roots and routes—the philosophical genealogies and the future directions—of _The Black Atlantic_, we aim to bring together the ongoing conversations among students and faculty who have engaged with Gilroy's heuristic paradigm.
