Marcus Harmes
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

Prisons, prisoners, and crime are attracting unprecedented levels of interest from both predictable sources (tabloid media) to more unexpected (such as the prison setting of Paddington 2).

 

Globally, but especially in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia, the real life prison population is rising dramatically. The fictional presentations of prison, which may be prurient and sexploitative, high minded or fantastical, is matched by the barely factual and highly sensationalized prison of reality television. Orange is the New Black is only the latest example of the compulsion media of all types have to look inside the prison.

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 8:59am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 29, 2018

NeMLA is turning 50! Please come and help us celebrate our Anniversary Convention at the Gaylord National in Washington DC, March 21–24, 2019.

The theme of our 2019 convention is "Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Cultures, Languages, and Peoples." It aims to challenge traditional notions of history, territory, and identity and to recognize the complex processes of trans-culturation that have characterized modernity.

As the capital of the United States, Washington, DC, plays an important role in shaping both national and global history. It is vital that NeMLA bring its convention to this seat of power in order to address the ongoing challenges we face in producing a world that values diversity, honesty, scholarship, and justice.
