In mirroring the true nature of her experiences and responses to it, the collection proposes to be an indispensable narrative of the feminine sensibilities, the ups and downs of the female life vis-à-vis this crisis.

Naturalistic Models of Society and the Novel Form

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

Abstract This panel will seek to explore the changing relationship between scientific paradigms and society’s self-understanding as it is manifest in the novel form. If the novel itself has functioned as a record of the social imagination—a narrative ideologeme as Jameson describes it – this social imagination often borrowed its models from contemporary natural philosophy and later the social sciences. We see examples of this in Balzac’s use of taxonomical zoology, Sterne’s use of Cartesian “animal spirits,” or Joyce’s phylogenetic process in “Oxen of the Sun.” Some of the questions this panel will ask include: how do naturalistic sociological models help to mediate political and aesthetic theories? How do these models affect stylistic developments?

What is boredom and why do we feel bored? Recently, research on boredom has gained momentum in the scientific community, particularly in neuroscience and clinical psychology, where the symptoms of boredom and the behavioral patterns of the bored person are scrutinized (i.e. Boredomlab). Boredom, however, has been explored by philosophers for centuries and has been making a persistent appearance in the modern novel from nineteenth and century to present, in the moments of contemplation, waiting, idleness or complaints of bored characters.

The Spanish Flu of 1918-19 killed somewhere between 50 to 100 million people, but it did not infect every country. The Covid-19 pandemic of 2019-20 has not killed nearly as many people, but is arguably the first event in human history that affects every person on the planet. The Greek word pándemos means “belonging to all the people.” The Covid-19 pandemic belongs to everyone. It shows, in dramatic fashion, how we are all connected.

Monday, November 30, 2020

Mark Z. Danielewski’s pentalogy The Familiar, published between 2015 and 2017, is likely the most audacious project in American fiction in the twenty-first century so far. Announced as a set that would eventually encompass 27 novels, the five novels published as the first “season” of the series as a whole have done what readers have come to expect of Danielewski’s work: they once more pushed the limits of what a novel is and can be.

NeMLA 2021: Examining Contemporary Representations of Armed Conflict (Panel)

Katie Harling-Lee / Durham University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

Description: 

This session will analyze representations of armed conflict in contemporary media, exploring how these representations might influence the popular understanding of global and civil conflict and the way that these representations of conflict might be read as an attempt to change (or maintain) a certain world. We welcome a broad range of papers, particularly aiming for a global perspective on the ethical debate of representing armed conflict in stylized media, as we interrogate how these representations might affect popular imaginations of conflict and how we as researchers might form an analytical approach to representations of conflict.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

This panel - for NeMLA's 2021 Convention - explores past and current South Asian cinema's use of Shakespearean drama to respond to three questions. First, to what extent are South Asian filmmakers concerned with reenacting the Western dramatic canon? Second, at what point and why do South Asian filmmakers use Shakespeare as a springboard to explore problems and values that are only tangentially Shakespeare's? Third, what are these problems and values and how to they resonate for today’s global, wired audience?
