This year's conference theme is "Tough But Necessary Conversations: Social Justice in Literature, Language, and Media."

ACLA 2022: The Place of Podcasts in the Humanities

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

 

Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies?

Totality and Culture, a special issue of Qui Parle

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:41pm
Qui Parle: Critical Humanities and Social Sciences
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Is theoretical resistance to totality still viable today, in this moment of totalizing crisis? How might we reclaim totality as a conceptual ground that can account for the relationship between experience, on the one hand, and the historical-material processes that shape cultural production, on the other? Almost a century after György Lukács reinstated the concept at the very center of Marx’s project, and some four decades since the publication of Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious, we are compelled to ask: how might we think about cultural production, circulation, and consumption in relation with, rather than in opposition to, totality? 

Spaces, Narratives, and Technologies of Care

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

This panel is interested in critiques of narratives and representations of spaces and technologies of care, including the medicalization of homes, disabling spaces in the home, examinations of how bodied and disembodied artificial intelligence may change geographies of care, deterritorialization of long-term care facilities, the cosmopolitanized spaces of care in hotels, the gendered and racialized politics of service industries, and the promotion or promise of care through mediated forms of print and digital technologies.

NeMLA 2022 Panel -- Care, Knowledge, and Subjectivity: Foucault’s Epimeleia

Friday, October 15, 2021

**Deadline extended**

This panel seeks to explore the contemporary uses of the Greek “care” or epimeleia particularly in ways enabled by Michel Foucault’s analysis of the notion connecting to (self)knowledge, subjectivity, and mode of life.

 

*Deadline Extended (Oct 15): Dance as Site-ation: Adapting Literature, Film, Media, Place, and Performance (NeMLA 2022)

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

Film Exhibition: The Italian Context (Symposium / Edited Volume)

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 17, 2021

This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

Teaching the Global Eighteenth Century (Roundtable at ASECS Annual Conference, March 31-April 2, 2022, Baltimore, MD)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 8, 2021

For this roundtable, we seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century
within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and
transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or
any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalize” students’
engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations that offer strategies for
teaching subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric
worldview.

Migration, Belonging, and Afro-Europeanness: Current Articulations and Future Perspectives

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 4:26am
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel aims to explore how writers and filmmakers have articulated questions of Blackness and Europeanness, migration and cultural belonging, colonial histories and decolonial futures.

In recent decades, artists, scholars, and activists from all over Europe have interrogated and problematized wishful narratives about Europe as a democratic stronghold and a multicultural, borderless space. Working in different media, forms, and genres, these works address urgent questions, such as the racialization of migration, the persistent social and economic inequalities of urban spaces, and the legacies of repressed colonial histories.

*Updated Deadline Extension to 10/15/21* NeMLA 2022 - Exploring Plurality: Queering Feminism(s), Neoliberalism, and the Commodification of Intersectionality

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 10:58pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.

Deadline Extended: NeMLA 2022 - Contemporary Poetry and Social Media

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 1:43pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable will convene literary and media scholars with poets themselves to explore the present and future of poetic cultures online, both in the U.S. and around the world. Our largest question can be simply put: to what extent have platforms for digital “prosumption” and online networking transformed the social life of contemporary poetry? We understand this inquiry to entail a diverse array of other, finer pointed questions: How does social media now condition the politics of contemporary poetry, where “politics” signifies both the institutional lifeforms of poetry’s production and circulation, and the ostensible public efficacy of poems themselves?

(Extended Deadline Oct. 15) NeMLA 2022: Sex in Literature After #MeToo

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 1:11pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

In recent years there has been increased attention to conversations concerning consent, sexual violence, and rape. The stories of survivors have been an important tool for informing the public about these issues and providing healing. First-hand nonfiction accounts of sexual violence like A Woman in Berlin, Know My Name, and Willow Weep for Me have helped to destigmatize conversations about rape and sexual assault and problematized mainstream understandings of these concepts. Novels like The Handmaid’s Tale have also been able to question what sex and pleasure could look like within a rape culture.

This roundtable is a combined showcase of published work that began on a NeMLA panel and an opportunity to extend the conversation from the original panel and publication to look at the increasingly global enterprise of RuPaul’s Drag Race and its pedagogical power. Across its chapters, RuPedagogies of Realness: Essays on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Teaching and Learning (McFarland 2021) tackles issues from heterotopia, pop-linguistics, philosophies of co-productive learning, and televised curricula to cultural appropriation, sports as pedagogy, stand-up as pedagogy, and even digital drag…right into the COVID-19 pandemic.

Journal Articles for Special Issue: "Teaching Girlhood Studies"

Sunday, October 3, 2021 - 7:49am
Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Girlhood Studies, as an academic discipline, is still growing. Since some educational institutions do include girls’ studies as part of a special curriculum, an academic program, a certificate course, a minor, or as part of Women’s Studies or Gender Studies, Girlhood Studies does have a presence in academia although at this stage rarely in an autonomous department. This interest in the pedagogies and practices of teaching Girlhood Studies is an important aspect of its growth as a field of study at university level, at school, and outside of formal academic settings.

NeMLA Roundtable: Genre of the Sketch in Long 19-century American Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

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.
