In the twenty plus years since independence, South Africa has been mired in economic struggles, social crises related to HIV and ADIS and xenophobia, and increasingly demanding political protest. Have the visions of a utopian future that were sparked with Mandela's release from prison evaporated under the weight of so much disillusionment, or is there still hope that the nation's unparalleled constitution can ever be brought to fruition? This panel welcomes papers examining contemporary works from South Africa that advance an idealistic image for the nation despite the many obstacles faced in building a democratic state.

Writing Beyond the Language Requirement 

Recently, scholars have recognized that “L2 writing is not only an ability to acquire, teach, and assess—as is conventionally assumed—but L2 writing is also a means, context, and basis for learning, both of language and of writing” (Manchón, 2011, x). That is, second language writing involves both learning to write and writing to learn. What does this mean for our curricula?

Race and Ethnicity in the Program Era, NeMLA 2017

By recruiting minority writers and teaching them to "write what you know" and "find your voice," MFA programs have generated landmark works of fiction that perform and celebrate marginalized racial and ethnic identities. However, critics argue that the institution of Creative Writing and its aesthetic values are culturally specific and may fetishize racial and ethnic difference for white audiences. Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words about authors or texts that exemplify the intersection of—or friction between—MFA aesthetics and race/ethnicity.

 

This panel will be part of the 48th annual convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association in Baltimore, MD (March 23-26 2017).

NeMLA Annual Convention 2017 -- Baltimore, MD March 23-26 David Foster Wallace has been one of the most influential American writers at the turn of the twentieth century, seeming to capture so perfectly the hallmark voice and style of a postmodernism that he ironically disdained. Twenty years after the publication of Infinite Jest, and nearly ten years since Wallace’s suicide, critics still find him to be an elusive figure.

This book project seeks to elaborate lines of thinking that emerged during the panel, “The Unsettling Real in the Composition of Nineteenth-Century American Photography,” from this year’s C19 conference at Penn State University.  The heart of our inquiry concerns the problem of referentiality and the real in photographic compositions that proliferated middle-class culture through the machinery of Victorian-era mass production.  Contemporary scholarly analysis of this photographic tradition has tended to follow the classical semiotic assumption that the referent and its representation occupy distinctly different epistemological spaces.  In contrast, we draw on the insights of contemporary aesthetic theory and the field of object studies to c
