Legacies of Trauma: The Tragedy of Before and After
As one of the most versatile genres in long 19th Century American literature, the sketch appears in a variety of forms, including short stories, parts of longer novels, essays, biographies, brief plays, poetry, and more. What characteristics, if any, unite this breathtakingly diverse genre? Without a common theme or style, sketches change radically over time and between authors. Some sketch writers endeavor to render characters, scenes, or events from real life, like Louisa May Alcott when she recounts her experiences as a Civil War nurse in Hospital Sketches. Similarly, regionalist writers such as Francis Parkman, George Washington Cable, or Bret Harte present impressions of people and places.
This roundtable session addresses the 2022 NeMLA conference theme of “care” to explore its significance and resonances throughout the Black diaspora. Christina Sharpe asks in In the Wake: On Blackness and Being (2016), “How can we think (and rethink and rethink) care laterally, in the register of the intramural, in a different relation than that of the violence of the state?” (20) This session aims to continue to rethink care in this context.
Presentations will consider how Black writers, artists, filmmakers, and other cultural producers explore the practice of care in relation to Black peoples and other living beings across national boundaries. Participants might consider, but are not limited to, some of the following questions:
The CFP to follow is for a prospective panel at the American Literature Association’s 2022 meeting in Chicago (more information on the conference is linked here). To supplement the panel pitch, we would like four individual papers to submit to the conference organizers as an indication of interest in the panel; unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the panel will be accepted by the organizers. Nevertheless, after receiving and deciding on individual paper proposals, we will communicate our decisions by early-November with the aim of submitting the panel pitch to ALA by 12/1.

The tern Genocide was coined by Raphael Lemkin in 1944, in a context heavily influenced by the events of the Jewish Holocaust. The parameters of Genocide, and its legal consequences were gathered in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide that recognizes that the following are factors that take place in a genocide:
-Killing members of the group
-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group
-Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring physical destruction in whole or in part
-Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group
-Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

Le présent panel se veut le lieu d’exploration et de questionnement des difficultés auxquelles sont confrontées les femmes qui sont loin d’être préoccupées par la construction d’une communauté centrée autour d’une conception sororale unique. Leur engagement dans le cadre des luttes politiques tout comme leur rôle en tant que « gardiennes du temple » des traditions séculaires patriarcales ne sont plus à démontrer. Cependant, existe-t-il des associations des femmes africaines à caractère essentiellement féministe ?
