Whether we praise or deride it, we now live in its shadows and must reckon with what it has bequeathed us. Western thought is haunted by the Enlightenment

CFP for NeMLA 2022 | Queering Dark Academia: Investigating Cultural Expressions of the 'Other'

updated: 
Friday, June 11, 2021 - 2:51pm
Northeast Modern Languages Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Dark academia is a recently emerging term of phrase describing not only an aesthetic within popular culture but also a type of genre involving an academic background, elements of the gothic, and the spectacular. Like the speculative supergenre, dark academia often borrows freely from other literary and cultural categorizations, in the way of crime fiction, classical Greek & British mythologies, artistic aesthetics, paranormalcy, romance, villainy, stoicism, and posthumanism. Oftentimes within dark academia, the Other represents a romanticized villain and/or monster with whom the reader and reviewer empathizes with. Through this romanticization, we often find that nostalgia for a colonial history takes centerstage.

Special Issue of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Review, Hawthorne and Religion

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

 The Nathaniel Hawthorne Review invites submissions for a special issue on Hawthorne and Religion, with guest editor Jonathan A. Cook.  Over the course of his career, Hawthorne earned a reputation as the nation’s leading imaginative interpreter of New England Puritanism and its nineteenth-century cultural legacy, but the exact nature of his religious predilections remains open to debate.  Was he a bona fide Christian?  If he was, why didn’t he go to church?  What credence did Hawthorne give to his ancestral Calvinism?  What impact did his wife’s Unitarianism have on him?  Did Hawthorne have a well-kept “secret” that influenced his depiction of repressed guilt?  What did Hawthorne think of contemporary evangelical Protestantism, and of the nation’

NeMLA 2022: Video games and the literary

Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel will explore the many existing and potential connections between video games and the literary world. Many leading games have explicitly referred to works of literature, either within their storyworlds or in their marketing (for instance, Bioshock’s interactive rebuttal of Ayn Rand’s ideas). More broadly, emerging video game theory has often defined itself either by analogy or by opposition to existing concepts from literary theory. Book genres such as the choose-your-own adventure format (eg. Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series) have also anticipated video gaming, and in turn been remastered as games using the same text and narrative structure.

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.

Art and Activism: The Reshaping of Collective Consciousness and Social Justice

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

In his 1962 essay, “The Creative Process,” James Baldwin writes, “A society must assume that it is stable, but the artist must know, and he must let us know, that there is nothing stable under heaven. . .The artist cannot and must not take anything for granted, but must drive to the heart of every answer and expose the question the answer hides.” The link between artist and activist illustrates the import of black public voices that challenge institutions of white supremacy, gender oppression, and systemic dehumanization. Historically, artists have critiqued, documented, and contextualized racial violence to ensure that the past is not forgotten and to reshape the nation’s consciousness.

Genre Meshing as Social Action: The Rhetoric of Formal Hybridity in Contemporary Texts (NeMLA 2022)

As Anis Bawarshi and Mary Jo Reiff argue in Genre: An Introduction to History, Theory, Research, and Pedagogy, genres are not mere “text types,” buckets that writers fill with familiar conventions, but dynamic “social actions” that exist in activity systems (3, 78). And as suggested by contemporary texts across modes and media, for instance Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home (which blends features of comics, autobiography, comedy, and tragedy) or Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (which merges conventions of horror movies and westerns), contemporary authors and artists appear to be increasingly invested in the work of challenging genre conventions and meshing genres.
