Keynote Speaker: Meheli Sen (Rutgers University)

In 2012, Saër Maty Bâ and Will Higbee published their necessary and urgent intervention, De-Westernizing Film Studies. The principle aim of their collection was to “consider what forms a challenge to the enduring vision of film as a medium – and film studies as a discipline – modelled on ‘Western’ ideologies, theoretical and historical frameworks, critical perspectives as well as institutional and artistic practices, might take today” (2012: 1).

Roundtable participants will have between 5-10 minutes to introduce a topic, and conversation will follow.

Northeast Modern Language Association 2023 Panel: "Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man in the 21st Century"

Praised by generations of writers and thinkers, Ralph Ellison’s canonical novel Invisible Man remains deeply relevant. As we approach the thirtieth anniversary of Ellison’s passing, this panel will assess how Ellison’s landmark novel continues to be discussed, represented, and taught in the 21st Century.

How has Invisible Man taken on new meanings in the age of post-Obama, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, COVID-19, and ongoing climate change?

What influence has Ellison’s work had on later generations of writers?

How do we situate Ellison’s opus in his corpus and/or the canon of American letters?

Special Issue for Television & New Media
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

With the advent of social media and platform infrastructures, cancel culture has engendered new means of regulation through digital media platforms which appear to further silence already marginalised communities. Having roots in the Black vernacular tradition, the clear social justice agendas of culturally linked meta-networks of social media practices and community digital infrastructures are argued to have become highjacked by social elites (Clark, 2020).

NeMLA 2023: Niagara Falls, NY. March 23-26, 2023.

In the second half of the 20th century, Haitian society has been profoundly impacted by massive waves of exile provoked by the collective trauma of the Duvaliers dictatorships and epitomized by the internationally recognizable image of the "boat people". On the literary scene, the resulting Haitian diaspora, in North America and elsewhere, has found ways to maintain connections with the native land, reminiscing on childhood memories, revisiting Haiti both physically and metaphorically, and engaging with their shared history, myths, and traditions.
