Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

The co-chairs will ask discussants to answer a series of four questions (included below). The discussants will have 10 minutes to chat amongst themselves for each question. We will then open it up so the audience can discuss these topics or the participants and audience could converse together in an inclusive conversation. 

Fairies: A Companion

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Stories about fairies and the fae have long populated the imagination of many cultures around the world. Fairy histories have been the focus of much scholarly debate, and so has the figure of the fairy as a cultural icon.

Fairies and the fae have also gained a noticeable importance in the 21st century, bringing with them an increased cultural focus on traditional beliefs and indigenous identities. Indeed, while the connection to the folkloristic and the literary remains strong—with the multiple re-incarnations Tinkerbell from Peter Pan taking centerstage here—fairies have also found renewed life in modern and contemporary re-imaginings.

Gender, Violence, and the State in Contemporary Speculative Fiction

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

From its beginnings, speculative fiction across different media and genres has combined imaginaries of social and political organization with issues of gender and violence. Thomas More’s Utopia (1551), for example, imagined an egalitarian society that remained strictly patriarchal and a perfect government that ensured prosperity and peace by fighting preventive wars, administering capital punishment to adulterers, endorsing corporal punishment for unruly women and children, and encouraging (assisted) suicide. Whether we consider literary texts, film, TV series, comics, or other forms of cultural expression, contemporary speculative fiction continues to discuss (state-)violence and the gendered nature of socio-political relations.

In line with the 2022 Modern Language Association conference (6-9 January) theme of “Multilingualism”, this proposed special session invites papers that unthink literacies as they are represented in contemporary literature and culture, interrogates the enumerative approach towards languages that is seemingly implied in multi-lingualism, and the treatment of languages as discrete and distinct formations.

Gendered Violence in Old English Literature

The Old English MLA forum and the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship are proposing a jointly-sponsored session on gendered violence in Old English literature. The last decades have witnessed an increased interest in research on the relationship between gender and violence in the Middle Ages, with new studies exploring the construction of gender through violence and women as its victims. Gender theory and feminist studies have done much to refine methodologies used in this research, especially in the late Middle Ages. Still, there is a great deal of work to be done in the area of gendered violence, in particular in the literature of the early English era.

It will have escaped no one’s attention that the field of Old English studies has received a great deal of political scrutiny in recent years. This Round Table seeks to focus attention on the pedagogical dimension and/or consequences of that scrutiny. We invite speakers to give brief presentations on any number of topics relevant to the political aspects of teaching of Old English in the 21st century.

Old English literature is rarely associated with hope – indeed, much of its poetry is littered with the ruins of lost peoples, frozen and desolate landscapes, meditations on the death of warriors, and ponderous reminders that everything in life is merely lent.

Southeast Conference on Christianity and Literature

Monday, May 31, 2021

Literature is rife with the concept of the “social,” whether it be through exclusion or connection. The Bible records letters sent, Church History preserves the ways in which communities gathered and encouraged one another regardless of distance, and Christian writers have invested heavily in understanding the topic of community and social structures. This panel welcomes submissions that address the topics of intimacy, community, or exile. We welcome papers exploring literary works that engage with Christianity (or religion broadly) on the idea of the “social.” Papers might consider one or more of the following:
