Two conceptual territories bracket Europe’s imaginary geography: Greco-Roman Antiquity and the modern Balkans. According to Artemis Leontis, an “abstract principle of territorial identification” ties the political and cultural life of both modern Hellas and Western Europe to ancient Greek civilization. Rome has similarly been at the center of “a long and ongoing tradition of appropriating classical history and literature” to foster imperialist “narrative[s] of the exceptional progress” (Barnard). In comparison, the space of the Balkans seems peripheral to the project of European identity.
The editors of this important volume are putting together a collection of essays on Dark (2017-2020) for publication which is currently entitled Dark Reflections. Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, Netflix's groundbreaking German original series, Dark, premiered in 2017, and spanned three thought-provoking seasons. Set in the small town of Winden, the series revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a child and the subsequent unraveling of family secrets spanning several generations. As the story unfolds, intricate time loops and paradoxes emerge, propelling the characters into a tangled web of interconnected destinies.

In the field of Shakespearean studies, attempts to make Shakespeare more accessible to new audiences often include the work of appropriation, adaptation, and translation.
For hundreds of artists who died of AIDS-related causes, only scant traces of their work—if any at all—exist in institutional archival repositories. Therefore, art-historical work revolving around the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic has often called for inventive archival methods that blend traditional forms of research with community work and emotional labor. Over the last fifteen years, scholars and activists have contended with the gaps and erasures in such archives as well as the geographic, racial, and gender biases that have characterized many historical projects. In so doing, many have necessarily drawn on and even created community-based repositories, personal collections, and oral history initiatives.
It is often said that well-behaved women seldom make history. Yet, simply because they are not the subject of multivolume biographies does not mean that “well-behaved” women did not have agency in their daily lives. This panel seeks to highlight the agentic force of the medieval women who did not subvert the patriarchal norms of their time. How did medieval women make use of patriarchal norms to their own advantage? Specifically, how did religious women, lay or monastic, live their own lives, create their own spaces, and make their own choices within the medieval patriarchal hegemony?
We invite proposals for a panel at the next NeMLA annual conference, to be held in Boston MA, March 7-10th 2024
Title: K-what? Contemporary K-rhetoric and new directions in Korean Studies
Though the Internet has been around since the 1980s, the “Internet novel” as a genre has only really emerged in the last decade or so. We can think of Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts (2021), Patricia Lockwood’s No One Is Talking About This (2021), and Calvin Kasulke’s Several People Are Typing (2021) as notable recent examples. Each of these novels take as their topic the particular and peculiar confines of the digital world we live in. Lockwood has described this sensation as falling through a “long void that never reaches the bottom,” while Brandon Taylor claims that “the Internet Novel captures some of the weird Gothic horror that white people have come, by way of their new digital Calvinism, to accept as being inherent to digital life.”

Discussion of the presence of the medieval in a postmedieval world is often subtly suggestive of peril, with the medieval figuratively positioned in relation to potential crisis. The term adaptation alone may conjure up associations with evolution, (re)production, and – by association – death and extinction. More generally, the term suggests the need to respond to changing contexts, concerns, and audiences, carrying with it the implication that a lack of action will lead to decline. Talk of medieval afterlives goes even further: here, texts are imagined as already dead, sustaining a (perhaps ghostly or uncanny) presence past a natural lifetime.
