Late 20th Century Literary and Cinematic Representations of Slavery

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2013 - 6:27pm
Northeast Modern Language Association: 45th Annual Convention, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Quentin Tarantino's movie *Django Unchained,* has been polarizing since its 2012 release. Critics and audiences alike have commented on the overuse of the n-word and the extended scenes of hyperviolence that pepper the film. This last theme is the focus for our panel, especially in light of the artistic renderings of slavery since the 1960s Black Power Movement.

Teaching African American Literature in the Age of Obama

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2013 - 6:23pm
Northeast Modern Language Association: 45th Annual Convention, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

In 2011, Kenneth Warren made the provocative assertion that African American literature is now a dead genre; it grew out of the Jim Crow era when writers were explicitly engaged with representing black humanity. With the advances of the Civil Rights movement, the goals of this genre of literature are now antiquated. Warren's logic could be read as an extension of the current "post-race" mentality, which assumes that the ascendancy of President Obama is tantamount to the end of race in America. However, the real issue is the influence of post-race on the teaching of African American literature. This genre is still being produced, in part because race remains pertinent.

Pirandello's Six Characters: Theatrical Influence and Legacy (Roundtable)

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2013 - 2:30pm
NeMla April 3-6 2014, Harrisburg, PA

Pirandello's influence can be detected in the evolution of modern drama as shown in the works of Sartre, Ionesco, Beckett, Borges and O'Neill. This session wants to explore Pirandello's revolutionary philosophy which has inspired and modeled modern drama all over the world: theatre within theatre, the relativity of truth, the contrast between art and life and the ambiguous relationship between reality and belief. Send a 250-word abstract to daniela.antonucci@gmail.com or ellen.dolgin@dc.edu

Italy in the 1970s

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2013 - 2:28pm
NeMla April 3-6 2014, Harrisburg, PA

Notorious for frequent terrorist attacks for both political and criminal reasons, the 1970s was a turbulent time for Italy. Various domestic terrorist groups instilled fear among people as they organized deadly attacks that were covered by all media outlets. This panel seeks to investigate how literature, cinema, and visual arts responded to this phenomenon. Send a 250 word abstract to daniela.antonucci@gmail.com or marica@sas.upenn.edu
