Monday, July 25, 2022 - 12:50pm
Special Issue for Television & New Media
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

With the advent of social media and platform infrastructures, cancel culture has engendered new means of regulation through digital media platforms which appear to further silence already marginalised communities. Having roots in the Black vernacular tradition, the clear social justice agendas of culturally linked meta-networks of social media practices and community digital infrastructures are argued to have become highjacked by social elites (Clark, 2020).

NeMLA 2023: Niagara Falls, NY. March 23-26, 2023.

In the second half of the 20th century, Haitian society has been profoundly impacted by massive waves of exile provoked by the collective trauma of the Duvaliers dictatorships and epitomized by the internationally recognizable image of the "boat people". On the literary scene, the resulting Haitian diaspora, in North America and elsewhere, has found ways to maintain connections with the native land, reminiscing on childhood memories, revisiting Haiti both physically and metaphorically, and engaging with their shared history, myths, and traditions.

Friday, September 30, 2022

Abstract: This roundtable will bring together scholars interested in developing and studying archives that push the boundaries of what we consider the archive. At the roundtable, through our work, we will consider questions that arise within archival practices and arts, such as: what constitutes or counts as an archive, what kinds of archival delineations should be drawn, pushed back against, or ruptured, and, perhaps most importantly, what is or should be the role of the archive in combating systemic injustice and advancing social justice?
