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).

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

From the rapes of Lucretia and Beatrice Cenci in Ancient Roman art and literature to the #MeToo movement, women have long faced oppression that often engenders the sense of trauma and defiance. Reflecting on the 2023 NEMLA Convention theme “Resilience,” this seminar welcomes papers that explore how the above scenarios are depicted, and resisted, in British literature. Topics may include but are not limited to the Gothic and usurped female agency, female Gothic oneirocriticism, feminist interventions, spectrums of mentation, rectification of misunderstanding and stigmatisation, resilient female characters, and trauma in relationships (familial, romantic, professional, etc.).

South Asian Literatures: Women Writing Men, Men Writing Women (NeMLA Convention 2023)

updated: 
Friday, August 12, 2022 - 9:30am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

South Asian literary works have given us a memorable array of complex portraits of women and men and the relations between them. Some characters favor traditional modes of understanding the roles and behaviors of the sexes and their interrelations, others seem oriented to a progressive outlook on gender and the relations relations between women, men and non-binary individuals, while still others apparently embody a mixture of these attitudes. May we discern patterns or differences in matters of gender and gender relations when taking into account whether the authors in question identify as female, male, or non-binary?
