Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 6:39pm
42nd Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), New Brunswick, NJ (Rutgers University)

Deadline: September 30, 2010

Many poets trained as literary critics before embarking on careers at universities, where they produce primarily creative work. This session explores the ways in which academic and scholarly discourses inform the writing of poetry.

Panelists might read from (and comment on) their own poetry influenced by traditional research methods or theoretical paradigms. Alternatively, they might examine contemporary scholar-artists such as J.D. McClatchy or Gerald Locklin. Please send 250-word abstracts or three original, sample poems to njs16@psu.edu.

Please include with your abstract:

House and Home in 20th Century American Film and Literature (conference 4/2011; abstract due 9/30/2010)

updated: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 3:01pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

From Blanche Dubois' Belle Reve to Esperanza Cordero's house on Mango Street, houses—and the affiliated, if more abstract, idea of home—figure prominently in 20th century American literature and film. The 20th century, after all, is characterized by both inter- and intra-national migrations which have, invariably, entailed the loss of one home, followed by the acquisition of another. Moreover, the 20th century has seen a steady increase in both actual home ownership and the imaginative importance of owning a home. At the start of the 20th century, 46.5% of Americans—less than one in two—were homeowners but, by 2000, that number had risen to 66.2%, or two in three.

East European Literatures: Thinking Change, Conceiving Futures, NeMLA, April 7-10, 2011

updated: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 12:15pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

This roundtable seeks proposals with regard to East European literary texts, written after 1989, or contemporary theoretical works that implement or perform a certain vision for the future of the country from which the text hails or of the region as a whole. Because the way change is conceptualized, on both the macro and the micro levels, has a direct bearing on the way a future is conceived, particularly encouraged are submissions that explore this relation. Please email 250-word abstracts to Mihaela Harper at mharper@my.uri.edu.

Dubus 2010 - Call for journal papers

updated: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 7:40am
Saint Anselm College

In the aftermath of a very successful symposium (at Saint Anselm College, April 9-10) on the achievements of Andre Dubus and Andre Dubus III, The Xavier (New Orleans) Review is going to devote a special late-fall issue to papers drawn both from the conference and from papers submitted in response to this notice. There are no topic restrictions. With Dubus scholarship still in its relative infancy, I am looking for articles which will move that scholarship along in the same way that Boston College's special edition of Religion and the Arts (Vol. 6, 2002) did following the Loyola symposium of 2002.
