While historical and literary archives have long been integral to the study of the humanities, they are more than simple repositories for historical artifacts. They don’t just preserve works and fragments to be studied, they help us, as scholars, to actively engage in the public sphere. As Randall C. Jimerson notes “Archivists can use the power of archives to promote accountability, open government, diversity, and social justice.” In doing so, archivists can democratize information and open up new avenues of knowing by employing ethical and objective—but not neutral—strategies. This can be especially important for subjugated communities, who’s histories and cultures have been bound and kept distinct.

UPDATE: World & Comparative Literature in an Anti-Humanities Age – Northeast Modern Language Association

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Is World Literature the new, upgraded version of Comparative Literature (Comp Lit 2.0) or rather an attenuated, impoverished version of the latter? What unites us, and what divides us, especially considering that many World Lit faculty are drawn from Comp Lit backgrounds?  How do we, practitioners in these fields, rethink these disciplines for the era when humanities as such are under constant attack? In this session, we hope to discuss our shared ground and our shared challenges.  This roundtable is organized by the NeMLA World Literature Working Group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of World  Literature.

NeMLA creative session: Portuguese and/or Canadian texts: Borders, Postcolonialism, Saudade, and 'the North'

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 12:36pm
Angela Ferreira/University of Alberta
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Call for creative proposals for NeMLA 2018 in Washington D.C. March 21-24, 2019.

This creative session asks participants to write through a Portuguese and/or Canadian perspective in regards to borders, postcolonialism, saudade or 'the North'. The work focuses on understandings of these themes; the idea is to bring together a blend a contemporary national and/or personal views. The participant should write on either Portugal or Canada; there can be a Luso-Canadian view but this is not required for all entries. The goal is to understand and question nationhood through geography (landscapes), politics (economy), and culture (the self and the community).

Chair: Angela Ferreira, University of Alberta
