The Writer's Vice: Alcohol and the American Writer, 1940-70

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 11:48am
Mark Noon / NEMLA Conference 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers addressing the impact of alcohol on American authors from 1940 to 1970. Is it true, as Susan Cheever has argued, that being a writer during this period "almost always meant getting drunk"? The panel will work to separate the myths from the reality regarding the use of alcohol among writers of the period. It will also assess the impact of alcohol on the quality of writing and its impact on the talent of writers.

SCMS 2020 Panel: Time After Time: Film and Media Studies at the End of Temporality

Cinematic, televisual, and cross-media cultural production has passed through the end of history (Fukuyama) only to be cornered by “the end of temporality” (Jameson). Today’s illiberal turn is occasioned by the global crises of neoliberal capitalism and the deregulation of state welfare. Consequently, our present is marked by a global epidemic of nostalgia, one that forces Walter Benjamin’s angel of history to reverse flight. In this redirection to what Zygmunt Bauman calls “retropia,” a backward-looking Utopia, our experience of history is rendered ahistorical.

Who Belongs, Who Does Not: The Use of Comics as Literatures of Resistance

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA 2020)
deadline for submissions:

This creative panel seeks to examine how artist-scholars can combine their scholarship and their creative skills to articulate various forms of marginalization. I intend to solicit creative works that lie at the intersection of the textual and the pictorial, which push the boundaries of scholarly inquiry by incorporating the artistic, in an effort to make research more accessible to people outside the academe. As a comic scholar and artist, I firmly believe in the versatility of its hybrid form and its ability to solicit deeply affective responses (which cannot be achieved by purely empirical data).

NeMLA 2020 - “Delights, Disgusts, and Attachments in Latin American Literature” (Panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will explore the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love and affections expressed by Latin American authors. Its purpose is to create a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would also be considered.

Global Literature in the Wake of the Trump Presidency

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 9:15am
Richard Schumaker NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This roundtable endeavors to assess the influence of Donald Trump’s presidency on literature in the US and around the world. Three avenues of inquiry will be featured. First, how has the Trump presidency influenced literature in the US since 2016? Second, are there commonalities between writing in the US and writing internationally owing to the Trump presidency? Finally, focusing on non-US writing, are there perspectives or themes in global literature that are not at all present in US writing that have occurred in the wake of Trump’s presidency?

One of the strengths of comparative literature is that by definition it offers a pluralistic perspective on concrete world events.
