Ethics of Representing Care

updated: 
Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 3:15pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Many professionals abide by an ethics of care in their work with patients, clients, and students. These documents provide guidelines about how people in a professional (and thus power-holding) role should act towards those they work with. No such ethics of care exists for writers broadly and, more specifically, for writers who write about those who need care or who primarily write about caring for others. While an ethics of care for writers is not necessarily a requirement or the end goal of this panel, this panel considers the stakes of representing care in cultural artifacts, especially when the act of care is centered over experiences of disability or illness.

In the past two decades, crowdfunding and renewed interest in non-digital games (board games, role-playing games, and instructional games) and video games have created a diverse gaming production, which has become the subject of several studies and projects related to education. This session aims to explore and assess the impact that game-based learning can have for developing language proficiency, intercultural competence, or critical thinking in our Italian language, literature, and culture courses. We invite contributions that explore theoretical foundations and focus on practical activities and student work that are informed by game-based, and video game-based F/L2 language acquisition principles.

In Horkheimer and Adorno’s dialectic of Enlightenment, the spiritual and mimetic relation towards nature in early myth society increasingly gives way to nature’s disenchantment: the process by which a holistic and qualitative nature is systematically reduced and fragmented into the purely “rational” material of natural science and, ultimately, industrial, carbon-based society. But as Horkheimer as Adorno make clear, enlightenment, what promised liberate us from the irrational, becomes an even more irrational force than the nature it supposedly subdued, giving rise to catastrophes—genocide, nuclear fallout, global warming—that dwarf the violence nature originally wrought.

Representing “Arabia” in the Long Eighteenth Century (ASECS Annual Conference, Baltimore, 2022)

This panel invites papers on eighteenth-century texts or visual art that engage with, provide accounts of, or create Orientalist fictions about “Arabia.” The growing interest in the Orient and orientalia fueled by eighteenth-century travelers to the Near East and by translations like Galland’s A Thousand and One Nights (1704-1717), rendered in English as the Arabian Nights Entertainments (1706-1721), produced a large corpus of works that often used “Arabia” as an umbrella term that described not one location, but many. How did these texts represent “Arabia” and the “Arabs” and what sets of images or cultural stereotypes about the place and its people emerged at the time?

Saying and Unsaying: Ekphrasis and Apophasis as Feminist Rhetorical Strategies #19154

updated: 
Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 10:46am
Diana Shaffer / NeMLA 53rd annual convention
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable explores how feminist authors have used both ekphrasis and apophasis to question the interrelations of gender, race, class, and socio-economic and political power; and also, to displace traditional, outmoded beliefs, and inherited but dysfunctional historical narratives.  Rhetorically, ekphrasis is defined as vivid, verbal description, or as verbal representation of visual art, or as canonical literature re-envisioned to fit new narratives.  Apophasis refers broadly to denial, repudiation, or negation, and narrowly to a kind of irony in which what on the surface appears to be the case differs radically from what is actually the case.

Sapphic Echoes: Representations of Female Love and Desire in Global Literatures #19149

Seminar format

This seminar asks questions and invites responses that explore representations of female love and desire in global literatures. How have the complex poetics of female love and desire—the desire to have something, or escape something, or punish, or know—been represented over time? What strategies have been employed to subvert literary conventions defined predominantly by male perspectives on home, love, war, victory and loss? How have female characters navigated the interplay between things done (overtly) and thought (covertly) to reveal the inner web of desires, fears and conflicts that constitute a female poetics of love and longing?

“ Femmes solidaires d’Afriques transatlantiques: Sororité, amitié ou conflits?"

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Le présent panel se veut le lieu d’exploration et de questionnement des difficultés auxquelles sont confrontées les femmes qui sont loin d’être préoccupées par la construction d’une communauté centrée autour d’une conception sororale unique. Leur engagement dans le cadre des luttes politiques tout comme leur rôle en tant que « gardiennes du temple » des traditions séculaires patriarcales ne sont plus à démontrer. Cependant, existe-t-il des associations des femmes africaines à caractère essentiellement féministe ?

While the Covid pandemic left many feeling isolated, from tragedy has emerged a new surge in modes of fan interaction and fan fiction that further challenge who, what, and how “canon” is determined in fictional worlds that have long since been closed by the authors and script writers.

“)one’s eye / / perceives”: New Approaches to E. E. Cummings (deadline extended)

The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society’s journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20-minute papers for the 49th annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 24-26, 2022, at the University of Louisville (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com). Recent criticism of the works of Cummings has gone beyond his well-documented engagement with modernist aesthetic and poetic innovations. From Cummings’ visual and temporal poetics, to iconic meta-sonnets and rhythmic portraiture, to iconicity and ecology, and even to disability studies, the iconoclasm of Cummings in art and language presents a multi-dimensional i/eye that perceives and receives.
