CFP: Urban Identities
2013 Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
Boston, MA, March 21-24, 2013

This panel proposes to examine the various ways in which marginalized subjects appropriate and / or adapt to the spatial practices of exclusion and marginalization in contemporary neo-liberal societies. The panel will question the identity claims and spatialized performances of marginalized subjects in the urban context, particularly in terms of class, race, and gender. Please send 300-500 word abstracts in either English or French and brief biographical statements by 15 September 2012 to Domenico.Beneventi@usherbrooke.ca
