“To write, and to read, is to be exposed, to expose oneself […] to ‘exscription’.” – The Birth to Presence

 

“We have to begin by getting through, and by means of, the exscription of our body: its being inscribed-outside, its being placed outside the text as the most proper movement of its text; the text itself being abandoned, left at its limit.” – Corpus

What new modes of literature have emerged in current activist movements and subcultures?  How do they mesh with longer standing forms of performance and protest?    This session, approved for the 2018 Northeast Modern Language Association in Pittsburgh, April 12-15th, aims to explore the explosion of activist communications online and in the streets to discover how they constitute new genres, forms, and modes of literacy. Papers on Women’s and Climate March posters, Pantsuit Nation posts, agitprop theater productions, poetry broadsides and posts, and on theories and ethics of activist communication are welcome.  

A Museum of One’s Own: Literature, Space and the Work of Art

49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12-15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel will aim to conceptualize the relationship between literature and the museum in the age of cultural mediation and digital media. We will examine how the imagined and immaterial museum space, as represented in the narrative text, can contribute to redefining the aesthetic experience for the spectator. This will also allow us to explore the critical posture adopted by contemporary authors with respect to the existing configuration of the physical museum space available to the public. The multiplication of stories staged in the museum space raises the question of the type of narratives that the museum experience can offer.

The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.
