Bandung to Berlin: Art, Decolonization, and the Cold War

updated: 
Friday, July 12, 2024 - 3:25pm
Princeton University Department of Art & Archeology
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 12, 2024

Bandung to Berlin explores the radical imagination of the global Cold War, the aesthetics of Non-Alignment, and the role of art in the era of decolonization. Though these topics are often treated as separate paradigms, their points of interconnection are deeply entangled. As former colonies across Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean fought for and gained independence, new national agendas navigated the competing pressures of the Cold War and resisted a dichotomous world order. This conference will explore transnational artistic exchanges and cultural diplomacy in the years 1947-1989, especially across regions in the Global South. We hope to foster new conversations about the confluence of art and politics in larger cultural imaginaries.

How are Asian American and Pacific Islander bodies figured across different media—in contemporary novels, poetry, and visual arts? How do the transits and residues of US empire across the Pacific inform these representations? This panel investigates texts that center AAPI bodies and their varying materialities, wherein racialized bodies take on other-than-human forms (i.e., paper, digital, textual, watery, earthy, animal, etc.). The panel aims to explore how these embodiments are shaped by the residual and ongoing violences of US empire and/or war in the Pacific.

"The Future of the American Literary Archive" panel at NeMLA 2025 (March 6-9, Philadelphia) invites panelists to share archival discoveries in American literature while also engaging in broader methodological reflections on the state of archival research in the humanities. In the context of explaining their own archival work and/or pedagogy, panelists will discuss how archival research has been impacted—for better or for worse—by tectonic shifts in the US humanities landscape including technological developments (AI, digitization), declining undergraduate humanities enrollments, and calls for more public-facing humanities scholarship readable to a general audience.

Perspectives on Opera and the Operatic

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:57pm
Harry Rose/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

In the four hundred years since its invention in Renaissance Florence, opera has become synonymous with the grandiose, the excessive, and the melodramatic, yet it has only gained a foothold in the academy as an object of serious academic study within the past fifty years. Since then, however, an abundance of scholarship has yielded everything from formal musicological readings of operatic works to theoretical inquiries inspired by psychoanalysis into voice and performance. And topics like the relationship between opera and sovereignty in seventeenth century Italy and the appropriation of Wagner by the Third Reich underscore how opera has never been far from the political sphere in the Western world.

Poetry and Pain (NeMLA 2025)

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:57pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Conference - Philadelphia, March 6-9, 2025
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

The "Poetry and Pain" panel at the NeMLA Conference in spring 2025 will address how pain is felt, articulated, negotiated, alleviated, withstood, or appreciated through poetry and poetics. Elaine Scarry’s formative work, The Body in Pain (1985), describes physical suffering as an inexpressible, singular force that establishes an interpretive void between sufferer and witness. More recently, scholars of disability studies such as Margaret Price have retheorized pain as shared, structural, creative, or even desirable. This session aims to explore the many ways in which poetry thus contends with pain. Does poetry’s speaker/reader construction mimic or alter the sufferer/witness divide?

Creatures of Habit: the Animal in Latin American Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:56pm
NeMLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

From Aura’s surreal rabbit to rather unsettling Birds in the Mouth, animals have surfaced as important figures throughout Latin American literature, serving as powerful symbols, metaphors, and subjects of moral consideration. They have been depicted as divine beings, companions, victims, and agents of resistance, often challenging anthropocentric worldviews and inviting us to reconsider our place in the more-than-human world. This panel aims to explore the aesthetic, ethical, and political dimensions of animal representations in Latin American thought and culture.

 

We invite papers that engage with the philosophical and literary treatment of animals in Latin America. Topics may include:

Abjection and the Joy of Movement in African Francophone Female Writings

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

As today we see Western countries enacting various immigration laws and borders are being mined to prevent “intruders” from accessing those countries. Faced with (in)security in sub-Saharan Africa the African woman has become that monster of abjection residing in that marginal geography, dwelling in the gates of difference in unfamiliar spaces. The African woman faced with (im)migration goes through a strong feeling of revulsion, fear, or aversion, she is treated as something that is a threat to one's boundaries and undermines one's sense of identity and security, exemplifying Kristeva’s idea of abjection.

Genres of the (Post)Human: Representing Evolution in Science/Fiction

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

This panel is being organized as part of NeMLA 2025, centered around the theme of (R)Evolution.

Description:

In dialogue with theorists of (post)humanism, this panel seeks to examine how science fiction has historically been used to bolster erroneous and destructive "scientific" discourses, such as social Darwinism, and, conversely, how science fiction has been used toward revolutionary ends to imagine alternative formations of (post)humanity that defy socially constructed taxonomies and hierarchies.

Classical Queers Here and Now: Mythmaking in the 21st Century

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:55pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Literary works, video games, comics, TV shows, films, and podcasts that adapt or retell Classical mythology remain popular. Yet, recent attention on these contemporary stories has focused largely on women and women’s perspectives, while Classical queer identities have been decidedly underexplored or even excluded from feminist scholarship. Works such as Xena: Warrior Princess, BBC/Netflix’s Troy: Fall of a City, Madeline Miller’s The Song of Achilles, Steven Sherrill’s The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break, and Supergiant Games’ Hades and Hades II demonstrate a sustained interest in centering queer bodies and voices within the Classical tradition.

The Far North and the Global South in Popular Culture

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:54pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Despite the increased prominence of the Far North in the political and environmental crises of the twenty-first century, this space remains largely absent from Global South studies, an omission that unwittingly reproduces outdated notions of the Arctic as a kind of terra nullius, a region outside both the Global North and the Global South, devoid of people and history. As the effects of climate change continue to undermine perceptions of the Arctic as a region isolated from the modern world, this panel seeks to explore the relationship between the Far North and the Global South, as depicted in popular culture. How might concepts of the Global South prove generative in relation to the histories of the Far North?
