NeMLA 2022 - Exploring Plurality: Queering Feminism(s), Neoliberalism, and the Commodification of Intersectionality

Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:34pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

After a successful roundtable at the 2021 NeMLA conference, we again invite participants to share their experiences with interdisciplinary collaborations. Proposals are welcome from those who have broken disciplinary silos in the areas of research, course development and/or teaching. We will share success stories and pitfalls in building and sustaining those relationships. We are interested in hearing about triumphs as well as learning from less successful attempts, and strongly encourage team presentations. The organizers (a mathematician and a humanist) will discuss their own experiences leading initiatives and co-developing courses that blend STEM and the humanities.

deadline for submissions:

This panel explores topographies of memory and architecture as a powerful force for cinematic storytelling, cityscapes’ psychosis, etc. As part of the special session, we are looking for contributions examining and analyzing diverse relationships between cinema, television, architecture, and memory and their links with contemporary Spanish media and identity. Submissions in English and Spanish, although we recommend the latter.Since Foucault conceptualized the notion of “heterotopy” as those ephemeral or stable places in relation to the parameters of exclusions of the dominant groups, the emergence of the internet and social media has further transformed traditional heterotopias.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This workshop prepares humanities faculty to teach their classes effectively and imaginatively. To this end, the workshop has two goals. First, it surveys the major lessons learned during the emergency shift to online instruction during the coronavirus pandemic. Second, it offers specific, concrete strategies for moving forward as colleges and universities return to some measure of instructional normality.

The strategies in this workshop will address the following pedagogical areas: course design and management, best practices in the use of Zoom, discussion dynamics, and assignment design.

Women and the Great War: New Critical Horizons

Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:33pm
Richard Schumaker/NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Typically, scholarly reflection on the Great War focuses on military activity and masculine performance; in contrast, this NeMLA 2022 seminar examines the importance of women as fictional characters, authors, and purveyors of legacies associated with the Great War of 1914-1918. By privileging the role of women, it is hoped that we can bring a fresh critical light to this pivotal moment in world history.

 

The Literary Writer as Public Intellectual after 1945 (NeMLA 2022)

Inviting abstract submissions for a panel on "The Literary Writer as Public Intellectual After 1945" at NeMLA's 53rd Annual Convention, to be held March 10-13, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland

This panel examines the ways in which literary writers have adopted, subverted, or transformed the role of the public intellectual since 1945. Literary writers mattered to American public life during the mid-twentieth century in distinctive ways: that is, reading practices mattered to civic life (Matthews 2016, Menand 2010) and many novelists believed that the figurative or symbolic forms that they created could have a genuine impact on "more ostensibly 'real' political formations" (Szalay 2012).

New Approaches to Reading in the German Curriculum

Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:33pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Dear colleagues,

please see the CFP below:

To be held at the 2022 Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA) convention in Baltimore, Maryland.

 

Reading is a fundamental component of all levels of second language instruction and the goal of developing reading proficiency necessarily informs the selection, didacticization, and instruction of curricular materials. A reliance on authentic texts common in curricula designed according to current standards poses challenges in these areas, but also creates opportunities for rethinking the place, purpose, and structure of reading proficiency as communicative competence in the language classroom and within the curriculum.

 

Diasporic Blackness and Enactments of Care

Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:32pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable session addresses the 2022 NeMLA conference theme of “care” to explore its significance and resonance throughout the Black diaspora. As Christina Sharpe asks in In the Wake: On Blackness and Being (2016), “How can we think (and rethink and rethink) care laterally, in the register of the intramural, in a different relation than that of the violence of the state?” (20) This session aims to continue to rethink care in this context.

Presentations will consider how Black writers, artists, filmmakers, and other cultural producers explore the practice of care in relation to Black peoples and other living beings across national boundaries. Participants might consider, but are not limited to, some of the following questions:

In the last decade, we have witnessed the harrowing images of migrants including that of Alan Kurdi whose death sparked world-wide outrage at the way in which the migrant crisis has been dealt with on a global level. While Kurdi’s untimely death drew attention to the Syrian refugees and their plight, the political crisis that has taken place in the South Asian subcontinent begs us to further think about the subjectivities of migrants and refugees and the ethics of care within this region.

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

For the last twenty years, Iberian and Latin American Transatlantic Studies have challenged traditional academic notions of areas of study by examining the legacies of imperialism (colonialism and neocolonialism) on social constructs, knowledge, identity, disciplines, language, and societies from the 19th-21st centuries.
