45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 3-6, 2014 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania cfp
Session Title: Irish and Indian-Anglophone Writing in a Transnational Feminism Context
Chair: Harney-Mahajan, Tara
This panel will explore Irish literature in conversation with various postcolonial and world/global literatures. More specifically, this panel is interested in investigating the connections between Irish texts and Indian-Anglophone texts, but welcome papers that consider Irish writing in a more global context or beyond the borders of the nation. With increased debates around globalization and claims that we are "beyond the nation," this panel welcomes papers that probe representations of the family, the community, and the nation-state. Please send your abstract with a brief C.V. to tara.harney@uconn.edu by 09/30/13.
