With the increased cost of textbooks and a market that can never quite meet the individual needs of a given campus community, many universities are encouraging the use or development of open educational resources as a means of increasing access and promoting equity and inclusion across the curriculum. These materials are either in the public domain or licensed by their creators to be repurposed by other users, and more and more universities are beginning to incentivize their faculty to create such resources for their courses, whether they be a collection and adaptation of already existing materials or the creation of a wholly original text.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Friday, June 18, 2021 - 11:56am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Kazuo Ishiguro, Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Ian McEwan, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representationacross narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

When Poets Write About Poets: Representation(s) of the Poet and Poetry in Poetic Works (NeMLA 2022 - Panel)

From the very first traces of written poetry, poets have been inspired by their peers: whether with elegies, odes or allusions to the poets they admired, they have always incorporated figures of poets and other poetic texts in their own poems. Intertextuality abound from the classical texts (quotations, sources and models) by earlier poets, for instance Ovid, Virgil or Cato. Some of their contemporaries, like Tacitus, have questioned the ideologies of their predecessors. Closer to us, Milton in his 16-line “On Shakespeare” (1630) argues that no monument is a suitable tribute to Shakespeare’s oeuvre; Thomas Gray pays himself homage to Milton in “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” (1751).

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “overthe-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

For a Book of Essays on Forgotten Disney

 

Since Walt Disney released the first animated talking short Steamboat Willie in 1928, the Disney name has been associated with many classics of film and television. Recognized worldwide, these works and their characters have received extensive popular and critical attention and overshadowed other interesting but less significant offerings in Disney’s prolific oeuvre.

What Does Literature Feel Like

In Sensory Experiments (2020), Erica Fretwell argues that “literature is a sensitizing mechanism, not merely a representation but an amplification of experience,” positing literature as “a technology […] that has the potential to reproduce—not copy but produce more—feeling and […] to create more connections to the world by registering more differences in it” (28-29). Fretwell makes that claim in the context of her transatlantic study of the relations between American literature and the failed science of psychophysics as it developed in Germany at the end of the nineteenth century.

In Song of the Shank, Jeff Allen explores his characters’ sense of “placelessness...empty distance...like retracted thoughts, half-told secrets.”  What defines a writer’s underlying map of “urban space?”  Urbanity as a focus offers history, but how do cities’ secret histories, deep ecologies, and furtive sounds offer a shape to urban narrative?  What memory resides in cities’ erased/lingering boundaries, vacant lots, and disintegrating concrete?  This roundtable explores how writers and other artists have utilized particular cities’ cores, edges, and points of transit as means to rethink the shape, shift, and stasis of urban space.  We welcome papers on the full range of literary forms, but also welcome examinations of visual and sonic expression
