Postcolonial literature has died and been resurrected more times than a zombie in modern film. Often dubbed the Franken-child of Marxism’s commitment to real material conditions and deconstruction’s obsession with textuality, postcolonial studies has been schismed between its economic and political commitments, and its preoccupation with the politics of language and translation. It also emerged alongside the rise of theories of globalization and has been a primary field for thinking about the uneven movements of local practices and global processes.

Hinduism Against Hindutva

 

In the summer of 2021, speakers at the Dismantling Global Hindutva conference stated: "In our advocacy, we state clearly that Hindutva ideology is not the same as the Hinduism that we aspire to, but we cannot deny that proponents of Hindutva are doing so as Hindus, in the name of a monolithic Hinduism. As Shana Sippy put it, not all Hinduism is Hindutva, but Hindutva is clearly one manifestation of Hinduism.”

Paul Morrissey is a key figure of American underground filmmaking. Early in his career he joined Andy Warhol’s Factory and worked on numerous projects, notably the ambitious Chelsea Girls (1966), a 210 minute-long split-screen experiment which became an unexpected crossover hit and raised the profile of New York underground filmmaking.

From Nawal el Saadawi’s writings against FGM to Tunisian protests advocating for changes to inheritance law, this panel considers North Africa’s women writers in conversation with the conference theme, resilience. How have these women writers mediated and negotiated their interconnected position within the Mediterranean zone: between Europe and sub-Saharan Africa and between the Mashreq and Al-Andalus? How have they, to borrow from Hélène Cixous, stolen/flown away with the systems that they worked within, including language systems, genre conventions, and traditional literary markets? What are their roles in decolonization projects, including the assertion of Amazigh rights?

NeMLA 2023: Panel on Re-hierarchising Adaptation

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Adaptation studies has contended with the question of hierarchies since it first emerged. Adaptation as a process similarly so: the problem of the source and the ‘original’ has established certain values and positions of texts. This has been challenged most notably through the debate in the field around fidelity, wherein the question of being ‘true’ to the source has been variously deemed fallacious, unhelpful, or both. Despite some recent proponents for it, what emerges from this is the challenging of the hierarchies that the fidelity debate espouses. Broadly, this has been main way in which these hierarchies have been challenged in adaptations, primarily due to the seemingly inescapable status fidelity has in the field.

Making Time for Research and Writing Independent of Tenure/Tenure-Track Positions

Roundtable at NeMLA 2023, May 23-26 in Niagra Falls, NY
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Deadline coming up! This roundtable seeks participants outside of tenure & tenure-track university positions, for a frank discussion about managing research and writing lives when research and writing is not strictly considered part of the job. Contingent and adjunct faculty, those whose roles are solely defined as “teaching,” and independent scholars with alt-ac day jobs all have particular constraints to their research time and access. This roundtable will explore diverse approaches to these questions: How do you juggle your commitments, find support and funding, get access to library collections, etc. in less-than-perfect situations?

This session is sponsored by the CAITY Caucus.

Panel at NeMLA 2023, March 23-26 in Niagra Falls, NY
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Deadline coming up! This panel seeks to explore young adult novels that depart from the coming of age story for teen protagonists, and the progressive ways that they can position their main characters as already actors with agency in the world. For instance, in recent young adult novels by Darcie Little Badger Elatsoe and A Snake Falls to Earth, the protagonists are already respected by their parents and they’re asexual. They don’t need to rebel against their authority figures or have sexual awakenings. In the tradition of Nancy Drew novels, in The Box in the Woods by Maureen Johnson, the protagonist is already known as a teen sleuth and has an established boyfriend.

Friday, September 30, 2022

This NeMLA panel convenes literary critics, media scholars, and poets themselves to ask how social media platforms are transforming the reading and writing of contemporary poetry. Panelists may consider to what extent the participatory dynamics of Web 2.0 now condition the politics of contemporary poetry, where “politics” signifies both the institutional lifeforms of poetry’s production and circulation, and the ostensible public efficacy of poems themselves. We may ask how poetry’s relationships to activist praxis and to social movements like Black Lives Matter in the U.S., for example, have been mediated by social media.

“Horrors belong as naturally to the fireside, as fireside belongs to Christmas” declares the narrator of the piece “Fireside Horrors for Christmas” in the December 1847 issue of Dublin University Magazine. This image of “popular fireside stories or winter’s tales” exchanged in communal settings had, as the late Catherine Belsey explained, a “long vernacular tradition” (2010). Furthermore, it was, she argues, a practice that often-challenged orthodox institutional discourse about, for example, the “true meaning” of Christmas or the origins of ghosts and tapped into secular and “pagan” rituals and practices.
