CFP: 2010 National PCA Fat Studies (St. Louis 3/31-4/3; December 1, 2009)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 23, 2009 - 9:37am
Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association

Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions of "fatness" and "the fat body"; explores fat bodies as they live in, are shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture. Fat Studies uses body size as the starting part for a wide-ranging theorization and explication of how societies and cultures, past and present, have conceptualized all bodies and the political/cultural meanings ascribed to every body.

Member-organized Session:
Critical Literary Regionalisms
Organizer: Susie DeCoste (Waterloo)
Frank Davey has argued that regionalist ideology tends toward environmental determinism, resulting in certain assumptions about what effects place should have on a person. Within this set of assumptions, any identification with other possible grounds of identity, such as race or gender, is less important. More recently, in Critical Regionalism: Connecting Politics and

[UPDATE] The Margins of the Logos: Children in 19th Century English Literature NeMLA April 7-11, 2010 deadline: 9/30/09

updated: 
Saturday, September 19, 2009 - 10:41am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 7-11, 2010 Montreal, Quebec

Alongside Realism in the 19th century, which foregrounded a logical and representable image of the world, there ran a trend in literature that emphasized experience at the margins of the logos, including childhood, absurdity, fantasy, trauma, eroticism, and comedy. This panel seeks theoretically and/or historically informed papers that will explore this literature by looking at the role of childhood and what it reveals about subjectivity. Topics might include the role of childhood memory or fantasy in adult subjectivity; questions of gender, genre, eroticism, or empire in relation to childhood. Send abstracts (450-750 words) via email to: Alexander Bove, aboveagosto@gmail.com.
