This session proposes to look at what has been a persistent but under-represented section of comics studies: manga (Japanese comics), and associated with it, anime (Japanese animation). Access to anime and manga is pervasive: one distributor, CrunchyRoll, has one million yearly paying subscribers, providing electronic access to 50 manga titles translated into English, and 800 anime titles. In partnership with United States distributors such as Viz and Funimation, the vast majority of those anime titles are dubbed into English, making language much less of a barrier of access for teachers–as well as students.

Please consider submitting an abstract for the "Queer Italy" panel, held at the 2018 NeMLA conference in Pittsburgh, PA. This panel seeks to integrate the fields of Queer Studies and Italian Studies, and welcomes presentations on queer representation in Italian literature and film, queer readings of Italian works, queer Italian authors/artists and their experience, cultural movements, etc. The theme of the conference (to be held April 12-15) is "Global Spaces, Local Landscapes, and Imagined Worlds," so papers examining queer identity in the Italian landscape, public spaces, and fictional worlds are of particular interest. However, any and all presentations integrating Queer Studies and Italian Studies are welcomed and encouraged.

The idea of world literature has seen an unparalleled resurgence in the last two decades or so. Through large-scale research grants, publishing programmes, and curricula development it is threatening to become the new critical common sense across the humanities, and particularly in literature departments. However, both in the nineteenth-century idea of Weltliteratur (Goethe, Marx-Engels) and in its more recent revival as the new comparative literature, world literature has many and important genealogical entanglements with colonial/postcolonial histories, and only in recent years have we begun to explore these links critically. Unlike the paradigm of comparative literature, for instance, world literature relies on ‘a translatability assumption’.

Pushing Past the Human in Latin American Cinema

Over the past decade, film studies has increasingly taken up the question of the environment and climate change (Rust, Monani, Cubit; Narine; Pick and Narraway). However, the question of “nature” has yet to be comprehensively theorized from the perspective of Latin American cinema. This edited volume proposes to begin to fill this gap by bringing together scholarship that explores Latin American films (from any time period) that foreground the nonhuman. We are specifically interested in thinking about why the past decade has generated an unprecedented boom in ecologically oriented films (both documentaries and fiction) throughout Latin America. How do these films dialogue with or push back against broader theories in ecocriticism?
