Call for Papers for the 45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 3-6, 2014 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Session Title: Irish and Indian-Anglophone Writing in a Transnational Feminist Context

Chair: Tara Harney-Mahajan

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.

The 2014 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location. This capitol city set on the Susquehanna River is known for its vibrant restaurant scene, historical sites, the National Civil War museum, and nearby Amish Country, antique shops and Hershey Park. NeMLA has arranged low hotel rates of $104-$124. The 2014 event will include guest speakers, literary readings, professional events, and workshops. A reading by George Saunders will open the Convention. His 2013 collection of short fiction, The Tenth of December, has been acclaimed by the New York Times as: “the best book you’ll read this year.” NeMLA’s Keynote Speaker will be David Staller, Producer and Director of Project Shaw. Mr. Staller presents monthly script-in-hand performances of Bernard Shaw’s plays at the Players Club in New York City. Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar).
