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.
The Keats-Shelley Association of America (K-SAA) and Romantic Circles Pedagogy (RCP) Anti-Racist Pedagogy Colloquium is soliciting submissions for our new resource on anti-racist teaching, "Towards an Anti-Racist Pedagogy."
This webpage, which will be accessible through the K-SAA and RCP websites, will offer suggested readings, bibliographies of relevant scholarship, sample assignments and syllabi, and guides to use in the classroom. This project will be ongoing: our goal is that each year, a new cohort will develop and expand the resource.

Defining the Human in Environmental Humanities
Venice International University
If one were to judge the genre of science fiction by the blockbuster films it has produced, one would think it is a hypermasculine, imperialist, anti-feminist genre. However, non-white, non-male people have shaped, defined, and sustained the genre throughout its existence as authors, editors, and fans. The modern founder of the genre was arguably Mary Shelley who initially published anonymously. However, authors like Ursula Le Guin and Octavia Butler are now synonymous with literary sci-fi. Furthermore, some of the most compelling and successful contemporary writers of science fiction are women of color.
Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.
While the Covid pandemic left many feeling isolated, from tragedy has emerged a new surge in modes of fan interaction and fan fiction that further challenge who, what, and how “canon” is determined in fictional worlds that have long since been closed by the authors and script writers.
The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society’s journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20-minute papers for the 49th annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 24-26, 2022, at the University of Louisville (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com). Recent criticism of the works of Cummings has gone beyond his well-documented engagement with modernist aesthetic and poetic innovations. From Cummings’ visual and temporal poetics, to iconic meta-sonnets and rhythmic portraiture, to iconicity and ecology, and even to disability studies, the iconoclasm of Cummings in art and language presents a multi-dimensional i/eye that perceives and receives.

In their reflection or refraction of the world, television series seem to affect the perceptions of those who watch them, whether they represent ultra-contemporary ripped-from-the-headline events or historical events, either opening up closed social worlds or offering dystopian scripts in uchronic or alternate worlds as in the real world, political and environmental crises loom large.
