"Memorializing War, Destroying Memory" NeMLA 2019

In explaining what inspired 1984, George Orwell wrote that what “frightens [him] much more than bombs” is imagining a future in which “some ruling clique controls not only the future but the past.” The retroactive curation of memory is an oft-undertaken project, practiced in ways as particular as the redaction of a text like Guantanamo Diary, and as absolute as the omission from history of the story told by Chester Himes’ If He Hollers Let Him Go, in which Robert Jones is punished for a crime he did not commit by being forced to enlist in the Army in order to fight, and likely die, in World War II.

Call for creative proposals for NeMLA 2018 in Washington D.C. March 21-24, 2019.

This creative session asks participants to write through a Portuguese and/or Canadian perspective in regards to borders, postcolonialism, saudade or 'the North'. The work focuses on understandings of these themes; the idea is to bring together a blend a contemporary national and/or personal views. The participant should write on either Portugal or Canada; there can be a Luso-Canadian view but this is not required for all entries. The goal is to understand and question nationhood through geography (landscapes), politics (economy), and culture (the self and the community).

Hopelessness

There is a widely held assumption that any intellectual or artistic labor oriented towards liberation must have the function of increasing the amount of hope in the world: that it must be motivated by hope, and must produce hope in its interlocutors. But what do we lose, and lose sight of, when hope is our sole criterion for what motivates people to action and what makes cultural production worthwhile?

Call for papers for Crazy Rich Asians proposed panel at the Association for Asian American Studies meeting (April 25-27, 2019, Madison, WI)

The online publics hailed by the 2018 film Crazy Rich Asians have done a remarkable job in providing lively counterpoints to the film’s surface celebration of Han Chinese diasporic wealth. The superabundance of social media posts and thinkpieces on the film have grappled with critiques of heteronormativity, wealth porn and wealth gaps, the ongoing effects of British and Chinese colonialisms in Southeast Asia, racial performativity, visibility politics, the political economy of Asian American representation in Hollywood, and much more.

Thatcherism Today Edited Collection

Professor Stephen Farrall, Dr David Jeffery and I are putting together an edited collection entitled 'Thatcherism Today'. The collection considers the legacy of Thatcherism (specifically the -ism, not Thatcher herself) in the 21st century.

The book is divided into four sections, one of which is "Citizens and Societies".

We are currently seeking abstracts for chapters which fit in the "Citizens and Societies" section. We would particularly welcome chapters which address the extent to which the current Conservative Party membership is Thatcherite, but this is not essential. All proposals should address the central theme of Thatcherism as it exists today: we will not consider papers that do not.
