NeMLA, Boston, MA. March 5-8

In a 2011 Economist Prospero blog entitled "After the Unthinkable," the effects of 9/11 on literature was compared to those of World War II in that it "will continue to be a marking point." As we approach the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, this panel seeks to move beyond representations of the day itself to explore the various nuances of post-9/11 literature by looking at how the long political and cultural aftermath have left their mark on literary and visual culture.

Literary Imagination of the Plasticene

MLA 2020 Convention Just-in-Time Session
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 3, 2019

According to the US Geological Survey’s findings published in May 2019, “it is raining plastic” in the Rocky Mountains. Reports of airborne microplastics travelling around the globe are being released. The Arctic snow is shown to contain plastic particles. These disturbing discoveries attest that the pervasiveness of plastic has never been more conspicuous, even in the most “pristine” regions of the planet. At the same time, with India's impending ban on importing plastics from abroad for recycling purposes, plastic acts a political metaphor of neoimperialism that backfires on the “first-world” countries. In this era of Plasticene, we breathe, eat, drink, and excrete plastic.

WPU INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE: EXPLORING THE MACABRE, MALEVOLENT, and MYSTERIOUS

OCTOBER 17-18

WILLIAM PEACE UNIVERSITY, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA

The WPU Interdisciplinary Conference seeks to advance collaborative and interconnective understanding on a variety of topics. With a sense of a renewed interest, or perhaps a more mainstreamed acceptance of, the horror genre in American culture, we thought it exciting for this annual conference to focus on an exploration of the macabre, malevolent, and mysterious. It is our hope that you will join us in bringing together knowledge from diverse disciplines to further the scholarship being done on the myriad of concepts falling within this theme.
