Call for Papers

We're plotting our evil, feminist agenda: Women's Documentaries

42nd Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

New Brunswick, NJ – Hyatt New Brunswick

Host Institution: Rutgers University

Over a year ago I took a course on Women's Modernist Documentaries with Prof. Jane Marcus at the CUNY Graduate Center. This panel is an extension/continuation of the work I began with Prof. Marcus, and my interest in Gellhorn's war journalism and Welty's photography.

[UPDATE] "Surrounded by Bodies": Contact, Corporeality, and the Long Eighteenth Century (Deadline: September 15, 2010)

ASECS Graduate Student Caucus

Much has been said about bodies, yet the body still remains one of the most contested concepts in fields such as anthropology, art, history, literature, medicine, philosophy, religion, and gender/sexuality. In *An Essay Concerning Human Understanding* (1689), John Locke noted that all "are born into the world, being surrounded by bodies that perpetually and diversely affect them." By conceptualizing the world as one of bodies in contact, his assertion prefaced a growing eighteenth-century preoccupation with corporeality. This panel seeks to explore such investigations of the body by examining how these figures wrote about and experienced bodies, health, illness, contagion, mixture, and death.

Queer Girls in Class: Lesbian Teachers and Students Tell Their Classroom Stories

Lori Horvitz / UNC-Asheville

Queer Girls in Class—an anthology–will collect personal narratives by lesbian teachers and students who speak about sexual identity and its effects on the teaching and learning process. The mission of this anthology is to provide, through personal stories, an analysis of how sexuality (specifically, how being a queer woman) can influence classroom dynamics in the high school and university setting.

I welcome first-person essays from women who write about the surprises, successes or challenges (personal and political) that queer women–whether out of the closet or not–have experienced in a high school or university setting. I am seeking diverse voices and welcome submissions from instructors and students who identity as lesbian or bi-sexual.

Material Cultures

May 6-8, 2011
Department of English, University of Ottawa

How do objects circulate in our social, imaginary, and textual worlds? What are the politics of material culture and how do these politics inform our reading of historical and contemporary texts? In what ways do we perceive and come to know the material world, and in what ways does the material make and unmake this "we"? Proposals for papers are invited for a conference on Material Cultures in Canadian and Transnational Contexts, the 2011 edition of the Canadian Literature Symposium at the University of Ottawa. Interdisciplinary, hemispheric, and theoretical approaches to the conference theme are welcome.
