Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Scholarship on the Brut has begun to reexamine the role of space and place in the text’s presentation and readers’ reception of insular history.  The Brut texts provide fertile grounds for such discussions, as much of the legendary history documented in the Brut involves reshaping and redefining insular territory, including descriptions of the island and its wonders, the construction of cities and castles, the renaming of places and cities by rulers and conquerors, among others.  This session seeks proposals that further the critical conversation about territorial and textual space and its relation to language in the Brut and in its analogues.  We are particularly interested in proposals that examine ways the Brut

Mentorship as Intersectional Feminist Practice (NeMLA 2022)

Mentorship can bolster academic success, work-life balance, and feelings of belonging. Yet finding mentors is often challenging, and mentoring experiences vary widely. Mentoring programs are typically addressed to graduate students and early-career faculty, leaving mid-career faculty with few sources of formal mentorship. Mentoring relationships can be complicated by incompatible expectations. As recent scholarship on mentoring has shown, mentoring can replicate as well as challenge dominant institutional power structures.

“Where does literature intersect with life - with lives - how can we contribute to an increment of justice in the world?” – Dame Marina Warner, 2001

Literature and art can prompt us to care for one another across space, time, and culture. They can challenge social structures that underpin injustices. Yet they can also represent trauma and injustice in ways that undermine care by spectacularizing, universalizing, or appropriating lived experiences. Conventions of writing, reading, and marketing can limit what stories are heard and read as worthy of care.

Ethics of Witnessing

updated: 
Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 12:22pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

In the aftermath of mass atrocities, where the humanity is both the subject and object of a destructive process, the historical truth is almost impossible to access. On the one hand, perpetrators have tendency to deny their responsibility in committing atrocities, and on the other hand, victims’ experience remains unspeakable due to the impact of trauma. After the Holocaust, researchers from different disciplines focused on the possibility of transmission of the traumatic events related to the atrocities, as well as the obstacles that are faced during this process. One of the interesting areas of research in this regard is the victim-perpetrator encounter and the dynamics of witnessing in relation to the historical truth.

From the Socratic dialogues to post-modern cyberchats, it is only in and through communicative interaction that we can understand the world, people, and how things are working around us (Bohm, 2004/1996, Rockwell 2003). By means of dialogue people are able to argue for their viewpoints, to come to terms with each other, to jointly solve problems, and to resolve conflicts (Pickering and Garrod 2021). Dialogue brings together women and men, young and old, people from the east and the west, from the north and the south. Through the creative synergy of shared thoughts, ideas, and experiences, we can travel anywhere in space and time.
