In the last decade, we have witnessed the harrowing images of migrants including that of Alan Kurdi whose death sparked world-wide outrage at the way in which the migrant crisis has been dealt with on a global level. While Kurdi’s untimely death drew attention to the Syrian refugees and their plight, the political crisis that has taken place in the South Asian subcontinent begs us to further think about the subjectivities of migrants and refugees and the ethics of care within this region.

For the last twenty years, Iberian and Latin American Transatlantic Studies have challenged traditional academic notions of areas of study by examining the legacies of imperialism (colonialism and neocolonialism) on social constructs, knowledge, identity, disciplines, language, and societies from the 19th-21st centuries.

Revisions and adaptations of texts, histories and ideas can be seen as a kind of traffic between one form of representation and another.  This panel is open to papers that address any variation on that theme with respect to the long eighteenth century. Topics can range widely—from, for instance, a paper that considers a single eighteenth-century author’s revision or adaptation of her own work, to one that analyzes recent or current revisions and adaptations of eighteenth-century texts, history or ideas on social media. Papers on parodies, cross-cultural, cross-national and/or linguistic adaptations or appropriations, debates about how to frame the very idea of eighteenth-century history—or anything beyond or in between—will all be considered.

Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Only the very youngest survivors of the Holocaust are still with us – they survived as children but are in their nineties now, and we lose more of them every year. Soon there will be no first-person witnesses as the Holocaust recedes further into the past and becomes something less connected to memory.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Over the last twenty years there has been a significant increase in the literary production and critical analysis of environmental matters in Latin American literature. Scholars have established the relation between ecocritical and decolonial studies (French, 2005; DeLoughrey, 2005; Taylor Kane, 2010; Barbas-Rhoden; Heffes, 2013) but there is still need for further exploration of the relation between ecocriticism and gender studies in the region. This panel seeks to explore how Latin American women artists narrate the intersectional nature of environmental matters and to what extent art can effect change in attitudes and behaviours.

Elizabeth Finnegan, NeMLA 2022 Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Despite persistent conceptions of the American South as pastoral, Modern and Postmodern Southern literatures have just as persistently grappled with the significance of modernity, consumerism, and technology. David A. Davis demonstrates how Southern modernism emerged from the disruptions that modernity introduced into the region by World War I. Rapid technological change can transform our connections to our own bodies and to others; and these transformations have profoundly animated Southern literatures.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy: The Intersectionality of Music and Deviance Collection
Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis

This volume will explore the avenues through which 20th century musicians, and their enthused audiences, created necessarily deviant cultural movements. From the optimism engendered by the Big BandEra to socially justice-mindedGrunge in the ‘90s, musicians have used their stage power to resist, reward, and recreate long-standing cultural codes.

This roundtable will examine adaptations of Western canonical works by South Asian novelists, poets, filmmakers, and essayists. We want to keep the focus of this session as wide and as open as possible. Our suggested approach for your presentations is to isolate a single passage, character, or chapter and explore similarities and differences between your target of study and the original Western “version.” Ideally, roundtable participants will share precise texts or film clips with the attending audience and fellow roundtable members.

Thematic areas of interest:

· gender,

· social structure

· social change

· history

· family

· post-colonial themes

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.

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).
