SOUTH ATLANTIC MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION
November 2-4, 2018
This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.
Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.
Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.
The first international conference under the aegis of the French Society for Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies (the SEPC), and supported by the Institut Universitaire de France and the laboratory CECILLE (EA 4074), will take place at the Université de Lille SHS on January 31st and February 1st 2019.
The Birmingham meeting place of SAMLA 90 and the conference theme, “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies,” suggests the extent to which social justice has replaced literary aesthetics as the driving force of literary classroom pedagogy. While our classrooms may still be filled with analysis of irony, depth, and complexity, it is certainly true that the intersectional barriers to social justice have become an animating force in the analysis of literature. The questions this panel wants to ask is how we use literature to interrogate the barriers to social justice? What stories do we tell our students, and how do we encourage students to become astute social critics?
Forum for Modern Language Studies invites submissions on the subject of Protest and Revolutionary Movements for the Forum Prize 2018 competition.
