The Networks of Romance I: Transnational and Global - (In-Person Format)

Increased social mobility and technological advances in modern society, as well as the advent of postcolonial studies, have spurred scholars to investigate the ‘interconnectedness’ of the global Middle Ages, and to challenge Western-centrism. This session is open to papers that apply these critical approaches to romance texts. We welcome scholars who consider the textual representations of cross-culturalism, and of networks that transcend regional and national boundaries. Also invited are papers that examine depictions of networks from outside the medieval West. We particularly encourage participants who use decolonising methodologies.

 

Representations and Visions of the Future in Modernist Literature

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Several examples of literature produced from the late Victorian age narrate great concerns about the future and the destiny of humanity, concerns that would be significantly exacerbated in the twentieth century by the First World War, soon followed by the Second, the unspeakable savagery of Nazis, the nuclear detonations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and, last but not least, by the terror of a nuclear apocalypse during the long Cold War. Modernism appears thus as a cultural movement that, as Vincent Sherry maintains, “works most indicatively within an imaginative concept of time interrupted”, of a time that presents itself basically as provisional and utterly deprived of a future.

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery?

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

In working with disabled performers, disability scholar and artist Petra Kuppers notes the connection between the material oppression experienced by people with disabilities and the performance space. She writes:

58th International Congress on Medieval Studies
May 11-13, 2023

CALL FOR PAPERS

This virtual ICMS session encourages participants to consider constructions of the medieval past in the Middle Ages and after, particularly as manifested in the interactions between the medieval(ist) literature, historiography, and/or material culture of postmedieval periods. Juxtaposing papers that engage with one or more historical periods, this session will reopen debates about the problems and possibilities of periodization while illuminating how medievalists and postmedieval scholars can productively collaborate across period boundaries.

In his influential Palimpsests: Literature in the Second Degree, Gérard Genette proposed terms to refer to the relationship among texts: intertextuality, paratextuality, metatextuality, architextuality, and hypertextuality. Connections among texts are not new to medieval scholars, as is evident on volumes about sources and analogues; yet, textual networks might be more productively explored against trade routes, religious and political invasions, and ideological impositions. How are textual transpositions, which Genette defines as “serious transformation[s]” (212), anchored in cultural clashes and exchanges?

As twenty-first century scholars have continued the work of identifying, editing, and giving historical context to writings by early modern women, they have turned increasingly to larger questions of reading and interpreting these works—questions that have recently gained particular attention in Lara Dodds and Michelle M. Dowd's edited collection, Renaissance Formalism and Early Modern Women's Writings.

How do multimodal practices complicate the disciplines? What is multidisciplinarity vs. interdisciplinarity? What does it mean to be “undisciplined”? Contributions may include, but are not limited to: essays, graphic scholarship, pedagogical models, poetry and art.

Video games are more popular than ever, and gaming is an increasingly common hobby. However, gaming raises a number of complex ethical issues. Perhaps the most familiar is the question of whether violent video games are morally appropriate or not. But beyond questions about the morality of gaming and what is appropriate content we might wonder what the overall value of gaming is. Gamers are quite passionate about their hobby, and with concerns about gaming-disorder on the rise, it is reasonable to ask what redeeming value video games have. What role, if any, can video games have in the good life?

Multiculturalism is arguably a fundamental aspect of contemporary western society that has garnered diverse reception. It has been the source of diversity (positive) and social disunity (negative). Multiculturalism stands as the most recent development of race relations in ethnic studies; therefore, to study the contemporary theory of race, it is vital to consider cultural diversity as a constitutive aspect of that theory. Multiculturalism is not only a descriptive or even normative concept; instead, it is more appropriate to consider it as a pragmatic concept.

In 2012, Saër Maty Bâ and Will Higbee published their necessary and urgent intervention, De-Westernizing Film Studies. The principle aim of their collection was to “consider what forms a challenge to the enduring vision of film as a medium – and film studies as a discipline – modelled on ‘Western’ ideologies, theoretical and historical frameworks, critical perspectives as well as institutional and artistic practices, might take today” (2012: 1).

Northeast Modern Language Association 2023 Panel: "Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man in the 21st Century"

Praised by generations of writers and thinkers, Ralph Ellison’s canonical novel Invisible Man remains deeply relevant. As we approach the thirtieth anniversary of Ellison’s passing, this panel will assess how Ellison’s landmark novel continues to be discussed, represented, and taught in the 21st Century.

How has Invisible Man taken on new meanings in the age of post-Obama, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, COVID-19, and ongoing climate change?

What influence has Ellison’s work had on later generations of writers?

How do we situate Ellison’s opus in his corpus and/or the canon of American letters?
