PAMLA, Emily Mattingly

Queering Age

Temporality has become a hot topic in queer studies. Despite this critical interest in temporality and its relationships to queer bodies, experiences, and communities, age remains an undertheorized identity category.

What does it mean to think about age in queer ways? How do various cultural texts queer age?

Please submit an approximately 500 word abstract to www.pamla.org/2013.

[UPDATE} Panel on "The Modernist Room,"* 29 Aug - 1 Sept, Brighton UK -- MSA conference

updated: 
Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 5:38pm
Modernist Studies Association

According to Frederic Jameson, the Modernist novel abandoned the panoramic cityscapes of the 19th century realist novel and devised "strategies of inwardness." As Brigitte Munier suggests, the early-20th century protagonist experienced the city "locked within his room, carried away by the cries of shopowners whom Flaubert and Nerval would have encountered walking down the street." The Modernist room, in these accounts, appears to function as a refuge from a confusing public terrain.

"Worlds Between: Exploring the Borders, Boundaries, and Gaps that Divide and Bind"

Saturday, April 27, 2013
California State University, Northridge
Graduate Conference
"Between two worlds life hovers like a star, twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge." – Lord Byron

This conference is interested in exploring the concept of the spaces between – genres, cultures, times, people, movements, nations – the possibilities are endless. How do these spaces confine? How do they enable? What moves between? What exists within?
