The Section on the Status of Women (SSW) will sponsor one or more panels for the Society for Ethnomusicology's 59th Annual Meeting, to be held November 13-16, 2014 in Pittsburgh. The SSW seeks to sponsor papers that relate to the topics of women, music, and sound.

We are accepting both organized panels and individual papers that can be grouped into organized panels.

THE LEGACY OF SHERWOOD ANDERSON'S GROTESQUES IN THE AMERICAN SHORT STORY

"It was the truths that made the people grotesques. The old man had quite an elaborate theory concerning the matter. It was his notion that the moment one of the people took one of the truths to himself, called it his truth, and tried to live his life by it, he became a grotesque and the truth he embraced became a falsehood."

(Abstract by Jan. 19) Calvino's Contexts: The Influences On and The Influences Of Italo Calvino (NeMLA Apr. 2014)

In the years since his death, the stature of Italo Calvino has only continued to grow. While his status as an Italian writer was never in doubt, the global range of his work is still being explored. This panel invites papers interested in pursuing this framework, political and historical, national and transnational, literary and philosophical. The influences on Calvino's fictions were immense, and the influence of his fictions on other writers and other literary movements - postmodernist, postcolonial, magical realist, science fictional, and others - have been equally immense. This panel seeks to better understand these influences. In what ways can Italo Calvino be seen not only as a great Italian novelist, but as a key figure in world literature?

The voice of an artist reaches and touches the world as well as the lives of his/ her readers. The words of writers can stir social unrest but they can also pacify the crowds. Literary works are instrumental in preserving national identities, and Poland's troubled history during the Partitions can serve as the epitome of the authority of literature. Writers, however, are equally revered as they are persecuted for the statements they dare to utter.
