South Asian Literatures: Women Writing Men, Men Writing Women (NeMLA Convention 2023)

updated: 
Friday, August 12, 2022 - 9:30am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

South Asian literary works have given us a memorable array of complex portraits of women and men and the relations between them. Some characters favor traditional modes of understanding the roles and behaviors of the sexes and their interrelations, others seem oriented to a progressive outlook on gender and the relations relations between women, men and non-binary individuals, while still others apparently embody a mixture of these attitudes. May we discern patterns or differences in matters of gender and gender relations when taking into account whether the authors in question identify as female, male, or non-binary?

CFC: Depictions of Mentorship in Shonen Anime

Dr. Erica Joan Dymond
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

This "call for chapters" is for a collection through Lexington Press (which has approved the concept and is awaiting the chapter list). The focus of this collection is mentorship as portrayed in shonen anime.

Shonen anime is loaded with mentors. Some are insightful, benevolent, and effective. Boku no Hero Academia’s All Might is one such mentor. His treatment of Midoriya is founded in compassion. And, All Might himself is a beloved leader. Who he is before the camera is the same as when there are no cameras to be found (excluding his physically transformation, of course). He is a model mentor.

Thinking Beyond Resilience: Indigenous (Hi)Stories of Continuity and Futurity

updated: 
Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 1:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Etymologically, the term “resilience”--from the Latin re- and salire, “to leap in return”--refers to the capability of a thing, in response to some stimulus, to return to its original form or state. The term connotes a dual activity, simultaneously an undoing and a rebuilding. But in Indigenous contexts, under the realities of settler-colonialism, the aspiration to “return to original form” is a fraught enterprise, as it inevitably encounters the romanticized conceptual dichotomies of traditional / modern, sedentary / nomadic, cultural / political, and historical / mythical.
