People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that's how they'll react. But if you say, 'We want peace, we want stability,' we can then do a lot of things that will contribute to the progress of our society.

MLA 2024: Special Session - Theatrical Performance in Literature

updated: 
Thursday, March 9, 2023 - 11:14pm
Alexia Mandla Ainsworth / MLA Special Session 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 20, 2023

This special session panel, for the 2024 MLA in Philadelphia, PA, will reflect on how performativity, acting, and theatre appear in writing. When we consider the novel, especially, how does theatre show its impact on authors and how do authors invoke theatrical performance or acting in a non-visual form? For texts with visual components, such as manga or illustrated stories, how do the images interface with the text to create an experience of performance for readers? When we see the theatre itself appear in literature, what is its role? When we see an amateur performance, such as Lovers' Vows in Austen's Mansfield Park, what does that say about how theatre is constructed in Austen's understanding of society?

MLA 2024: The Burden and Privilege of HBCU Graduate Students in the Anti-CRT Era

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) serve a vital function within academia, particularly for the predominantly Black student body that these historic institutions serve. There are at least 74 HBCUs that offer degrees in English, Languages, or Literature, including 10 HBCUs that offer Master or Doctoral degrees in these subjects. Some of the leading scholars of our disciplines graduated from HBCUs with at least “9 percent of full-time Black faculty earned their doctorate degrees from HBCUs [with] more than half returning to HBCUs as faculty members” (Perna, 2001).

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale (I19) seeks to publish the best scholarship on the century that was, in many ways, the time period in which the modern genres of science fiction and fantasy began, and in which the academic study of fairy tale and folklore has its roots. I19 interprets “the nineteenth century” broadly, using the dates of “The Long Nineteenth Century”—roughly, from the beginning of the French Revolution to the end of World War I—but even these dates are just notable historical markers as they approximately coincide with Romanticism and Modernism, respectively.

Special Session at MLA 2024 in Philadelphia, January 4-7, 2024

 

How might we better understand colonialism, and ways of being and knowing against or outside of it, by foregrounding the maritime: oceans, sailing, ports, cargo, navigation, crews, shoals, shipwreck, piracy? “Water is the first thing in my imagination,” writes Dionne Brand in A Map to the Door of No Return: “I knew that everyone here was unhappy and haunted in some way” that “had something to do with the Door of No Return and the sea.” Following Brand’s method, the gambit of this roundtable is that approaching colonialism via the sea can help us see it better and imagine paths past it.

In the Western perception of things, which still preserves the Platonic, or rather Parmenidean image of a stable order in which they exist, the potentiality of monstrousness, emerging from fractures in this world – or, to reach even deeper, from the dark matter of the chōra, the sombre Nurse of all becoming – appears as absurd, and yet at the same time as ecstatic, epiphanic.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2023

I am seeking proposals for essays to be included in a proposed volume exploring conceptualizations and representations of Queenship as a dramatic role or performance. In bringing together essays from different disciplinary perspectives, that focus on particular Queen or a group of them, on particular actors or other aspects of performance the volume aims to create a clearer picture of what it has meant to ‘play the part’ of Queen at different times, in different places, and across different media and contexts to shed light on the ways in which the office of Queenship in practice in real historical situations has been culturally understood, interpreted and re-interpreted.
