Different Voices, Voicing Difference (NEMLA 2020)

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 12:22pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

The question of the relation of language to voice traces back to Aristotle’s De interpretatione, with its definition of speech as the sign of thought, and writing the sign of speech. In Jacques Derrida’s account of this phonologocentric model, voice is the ligature of “phōnē and logos,” securing their essential proximity. But if voice is only a mediation, then, as Barbara Johnson writes, voice is no longer “self-identity but self-difference.” Paradoxically, the voice marks the singular but is itself plural, sweeping the self up into an ever-ramifying play of differentiation. As David Lawton proposes, “voice is both a signature, ‘I,’ singularity, and a clear marker of difference, ‘not I,’ multiplicity”.

Barbarians Within: Constructing the Barbaric Other in Speculative Fiction

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 12:17pm
Northeast MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

For the past two years, NeMLA’s keynote speakers have evoked the image of barbarians at the gates, and they are not alone in their use of this powerful image. Barbarians evoke a particular kind of wildness and danger that continues to resonate in popular culture, from the Dothraki and Wildlings in Game of Thrones, to the raiders in Parable of the Sower. In response to NeMLA 2020’s theme, “Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages and Cultures,” we invite presentations that interrogate the idea of barbarism in speculative fiction. How is the barbaric defined and located? Can the racist and colonialist implications of the term ever be shed or inverted?

Toni Morrison: The Emancipation Proclamation of the English Language

updated: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 4:41pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 4, 2019

In the documentary, The Pieces I Am by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, David Carrasco calls Toni Morrison, “the Emancipation Proclamation of the English language.” The parallelism he conjures between the historical document and grandeur that is Morrison hints at the idea that she could do what Abraham Lincoln’s indenture could not: Toni Morrison frees black people from fake identities. Laced with the assurance that if others knew what she knows,—that prejudice exists in a hyperreality created by those who need it in order to define their purpose—black people will not accept perceived realities as their own; that their lives have meaning, and their stories can take center stage.

Media Attention to the Adjunct Plight: Helpful or Harmful?

Monday, September 30, 2019

In the last few years, attention to the adjunct plight, to include poverty-level pay, limited job security, as well as lack of respect for us personally and acknowledgement of our professional credentials and accomplishments, seems to have intensified, reflected in a variety of media outlets, from more liberal ones like The Atlantic and Washington Post to even the ultraconservative Fox News.

Detective Fiction and the Revival of Reading

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 12:02pm
Maria Plochocki/ NorthEastern Modern Language Associatio
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

That reading and literacy rates are falling is no news: regardless of medium, we seem to be reading less and less, and doing so less well, whether in terms of comprehension, retention, or critical thinking. What potential does detective fiction hold to reverse this trend and even enable literacy, however defined, to survive and thrive in our digital era and beyond? The very traits of the genre that cause some to hold it in disdain, still, may hold the promise of rescuing reading and literacy. Firstly, the very disregard with which the genre is still treated by some, despite growing scholarship on same, allows it to be interrogated more easily; thus, critical and readerly standards can be exposed and challenged more easily.
