NeMLA 2020: Affect and Empathy: Holocaust Memory in Contemporary Narratives

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 5:05pm
Cartina Hoppes / Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

This panel explores a variety of narrative strategies that authors employ in order to negotiate the ethical and epistemological problems raised by the events of the Holocaust. Taking a cue from the conference theme “Shaping and Sharing Identities,” this panel is organized around contemporary reflection on and representation of the Holocaust and its continued impact on the present historical moment. Alongside pronounced generational shifts and the steady disappearance of the witness generation, Holocaust narratives are increasingly shaped by digitalization, politicization, and globalization of Holocaust memory.

NeMLA 2020–Cowboys and Capitalists: Mythic Figures of Masculinity in Nineteenth-Century American Literature

Diana H. Polley, Professor of English/Southern New Hampshire University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This NeMLA roundtable will engage the subject of masculinity in nineteenth-century American literature and culture, specifically through the landscape of two opposing mythic masculine figures: the American cowboy and the American capitalist. This session invites proposals that focus on either or both of these two critical representations of masculinity. How does the image of the cowboy and/or capitalist function in nineteenth-century American literature and culture and, more broadly, allow us to understand the complexities of masculinity and gender in nineteenth-century American society? Furthermore, how might we begin to trace these nineteenth-century cultural constructions in current conversations surrounding toxic masculinity in America?

Scholars working under the broad umbrella of New Materialism have offered compelling reappraisals of the ways in which we know, interact with, and exist in the world. This scholarship also intersects with recent work on music and sound, which raises rich sets of questions regarding human agency, material, ethics, aesthetics, embodiment, and the subject/object dichotomy, among other issues.

Whatever Happened to Baby Cain?

Childhood Unbound, Childhood Tamed, Childhood Eternal

Growing up is a perennial feature of human societies. While anxieties surrounding childhood are universal, the manifestations of these concerns vary between cultures. This series of sessions proposes to shed light upon the nexus of ambiguity surrounding the medieval child, as depicted in contemporaneous literature. We invite abstracts for papers that will explore the representation of childhood in texts of any language, genre, and period within the Middle Ages. Topic may include, but are not limited to:
