Seeking proposals for a special session at the 2017 NeMLA Convention in Baltimore, March 23-26.  How does a riot speak? How do we articulate and explore the riot as news, art, event, and mechanism for social change? How do riots redefine urban landscapes and the ways in which we inhabit and express them? Presentations welcome on riot in literary and theatrical works, such as poems and plays by Anna Deavere Smith, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Luis Valdez, as well as work in other contemporary media and social spheres. Papers on the literature and voices of the Stonewall Riots and papers with an emphasis on urban, cultural, ethnic, and Queer studies approaches and cross-cultural approaches to the phenomenon of the riot are also welcome.

From March 21-24, 2017, the Humanities Division at Essex County College will host its Fifth Annual Humanities Conference, "Radical Humanities: The Radical Tradition in the Humanities." Although the idea of radicalism can, in some ways, seem antithetical to our understanding of "tradition," this conference will, in part, examine the roots and patterns of radical thought in humanities discourse (including literature, philosophy, art, music, theater, dance, media, architecture, and design) as well as explore works, ideas, and movements that may be seen as radical or revolutionary.

Racing Against the Numbers: Speculating Racialized Futurity

“At the current rate, it would take until the year 2241 for the average black family to accumulate wealth equal to what white families have today. And it would take Latinos until 2097 to reach parity with whites…assuming the average wealth of white families holds steady at today’s levels.”—Kate Davidson, The Wall Street Journal

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 20, 2016

The development of ethnic literature epitomizes the complex relationship among literature, culture, and politics in a society. The recent immigration crisis from Asia and Africa to Europe has posed new questions for academia. Are current theories on ethnicity, race, and nationality still helpful in explaining the identity of these migrants? What do ethnicity and ethnic literature mean at this historical juncture?  How do we view the relationship among ethnic literature, diaspora, and globalization?

The Representation of Race in American Comics/Graphic Novels

updated: 
Monday, September 19, 2016 - 10:11am
Teresa Feroli/ NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

American comics have a long and checkered history in the way they have portrayed racial difference, though more recent comics/graphic novels have used the medium to comment effectively on American racial politics. As the genre grows in popularity in bookstores and on college campuses, now seems an opportune time to take stock of the ways this medium has both fostered and critiqued racist attitudes. This panel welcomes submissions on this topic from any era of American comics/ graphic novels and from any literary critical or cultural studies perspective.
