CONFERENCE POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 23-24 2021 

Considering the recent global events, we have unfortunately decided to postpone the conference (originally scheduled for September 25-26, 2020) to a further date. The safety of our speakers, staff, and academic cohort has been the decisive argument in this matter. 

We will announce a new date as soon as possible, but the most likely period is the second half of September 2021.

CFP: 2022 NeMLA Conference Panel: "Trans Visibility In A Time of Public Transphobia" March 10-13

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Laverne Cox’s debut role in Orange Is The New Black seemed to usher in a new era for trans representation. In 2014, TIME decreed that the “Trans Tipping Point” had arrived and heralded a path to trans acceptance through visibility on the screen. Yet this increase in visibility has not formed an antidote to rampant transphobia. In 2021, thirty-three states have introduced 117 bills to limit and curtail the rights of trans people across the United States. In this panel, we consider the effects of hypervisibility in a time of public transphobia across media.

Discourses of Care in Asian American Literature and Studies (NeMLA 2022 panel)

Friday, July 23, 2021 - 12:48pm

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

While the year 2020 is known around the world as a time when everything changed, the year marked an especially different turn for the Asian American community. Many have interpreted the recent waves of shocking racist attacks and anti-Asian sentiments targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities as a direct link to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. However, in reality, it is critical to understand that the voice of anti-Asian violence and hate is far from being a new concept in America.
