NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

-Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring physical destruction in whole or in part

Children and Political Conflict

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

We are excited to announce the CCYSC Blog Theme for October and November 2021: "Children and Political Conflict".

 

The impact of political conflict has been widely understood in terms of destruction to property, casualties and displacement. Changing trends in the nature of conflicts suggest that conflicts are more often protracted and occur increasingly in populated civil areas. (Save the Children International, 2018). As a result, the consequences are now being seen beyond the damage to tangible properties and bodies, through  intangible psychosocial impact.

CFP: “Genre Trouble in Early Modern England (1500–1800)”  

Friday 11th March 2022, 9:30–4pm (Online) 

Queen Mary University of London and Sorbonne Université 

Keynote: Dr Kathryn Murphy (University of Oxford)  

 

Early modern writings frequently resist neat or easy generic categorisation. Subject to interpretation, pastiche and modification, generic categories offer flexible guidelines rather than a strict set of rules. This one-day conference aims to look at generic experimentation, hybridity and innovation in early modern writing as a way to better understand the period’s multiple and evolving conceptions of genre.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel explores concepts and stereotypes lying behind the vision of love and eroticism expressed by Latin American authors. This panel creates a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable; other approaches also considered.

Friday, October 1, 2021

In November 1621 colonists in Massachusetts celebrated a year of survival and their first harvest  with a feast that has since been called The First Thanksgiving. The feast was a supposed  celebration of resilience after hardship. It was not until 1863, in the midst of the American Civil  War and with the nation divided, that this feast was enshrined as a national holiday and a  touchstone of American tradition and ideology: a story of togetherness projected over the  realities of division, exceptionalism, genocide, and slavery.

Monday, November 15, 2021

As music critic Rob Sheffield says in response to a recent Hulu documentary about Paul McCartney, “Fifty years after they said goodbye, the Beatles are bigger than ever — the toppermost of the poppermost, guaranteed to raise a smile.” Sheffield cites the release of the Disney Plus Get Back documentary, the fiftieth anniversary edition of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, and McCartney’s own recent albums McCartney III and McCartney III Imagined as testament to this fact. Perhaps even more true is the healing power of the music and the Beatles fandom during the pandemic years, where the Beatles have the same power to “raise a smile” as they did when performing on the Ed Sullivan Show just weeks after John F.
