MLA 2023: Histories of Childhood and Medicine

updated: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 11:57am
Mary Gryctko / Northeastern University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

This panel investigates the centrality of childhood to the rapidly changing medical and scientific landscape of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, an era that saw the development of Darwin’s theories of evolution, the rise of wide-spread support within the scientific community for eugenics, and the medicalization of birth, of neurodivergence, and of gender and sex. Papers will interrogate how various scientific/medical discourses used actual children as subjects, and how these discourses relied on the imagined figure of the child to bolster scientific claims around “naturalness,” plasticity, race, and gender, and to justify invasive medical practices performed on both children and adults.

Chinese Fandoms

Chinese fandoms are a growing area of interest attracting attention from groups as diverse as academia, industry, and even government. Although the foci of these groups vary, at the core are questions related to the function, organization, interests, and activities of fan groups. As Chinese media and entertainment industries mature and transnational collaborations increase, content and celebrity figures both inside and outside the Chinese context are increasingly distributed, consumed, and implicated in the formation (or extension) of fan communities.

Deadline Extended: E. E. Cummings Sessions at the American Literature Association’s 33rd Annual Conference, Chicago, IL, May 26-29, 2022

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 28, 2022

The E. E. Cummings Society invites proposals for two panels at the American Literature Association conference, to be held at the Palmer House Hilton, Chicago on May 26-29, 2022.

Panel 1: Cummings and Transcendence

In 1960, Norman Friedman declared that Cummings’ “philosophy of life” was “transcendental, romantic, prelapsarian, organicist, and individualistic. The same is publicly available in the writings of many others, such as Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau, and Emily Dickinson” (Art 66). We seek papers examining, critiquing, clarifying, or complicating these assertions through a close reading of any Cummings work(s).

Vonnegut on Film
Robert Weide’s documentary Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time was released in theaters
on November 19, 2021, following a Kickstarter campaign and much anticipation from
Vonnegut fans and scholars alike. Weide’s work is the first full-length documentary film
addressing the author’s life and works. This session invites responses to the
documentary and to “Vonnegut on Film” more broadly.

Conversations concerned with borders often address the extent of geopolitics, the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, “the meaning of the word border has progressively changed from a fact of nature to a cultural, political, and ideological product of human will (Power 6-13; Harvey). Natural frontiers do not exist either in a topographical or in a linguistic sense, and the self-conscious linking of place and identity is quite a modern phenomenon” (Spiridon 376).

The book provides an in-depth analysis of global perspectives on advancing public and social gender policy worldwide; it also examines women’s political representation and participation in peace processes in the context of their community, emphasizing existing cultural norms with biases, questioning societal prejudices toward women, for example, in STEM and creative economies.
