The Detective, the Artist, and the Professor: Genre and Other Critical Mysteries

updated: 
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 - 12:31pm
Mollie Copley Eisenberg / University of Southern California
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This is a call for papers for a panel to run at NeMLA 2021, which will be conducted virtually March 11-14, 2021. Submit an abstract by September 30, 2020 here: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/18807

This panel seeks to convene a conversation that theorizes the relationship between the detective novel, the art novel as it has been understood since modernism, and professional literary study—and in doing so move the critical study of detective fiction beyond the impulse to validate the genre as an object of study or redeem it from the stigma of genre.

Anglophone Literature, Anglo-American Institutions (NeMLA 2021 Panel)

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

How have British and American institutions shaped Anglophone literatures across the 20th and into the 21st centuries? In the decades accompanying decolonization, London and New York remain literary capitals by dint of their concentration of literary capital: the infrastructure of publishers and periodicals, agencies and awards that—staffed by professional readers—support (and distort) the creative act. Centers of cultural gravity, they continue to set standards and bestow prestige, offering more reliable access to readers and remuneration, acting on the materials of writers and manuscripts drawn from around the world.

52nd Northeast Modern Language Association Convention

March 11-14, 2020, Philadelphia

This panel explores how strategies for reading the Bible shaped literary output during the 16th and 17th centuries. Recent criticism in the field of book history details the reading practices that evolved in response to the Reformation’s call for direct engagement with vernacular scripture. This panel aims to bring fresh thinking in the history of the book into conversation with the perennial topic of the Bible in and as literature, offering new insight into how biblical reading became literary production in this period.

This session aims to foster conversation about the relationship between Continental law (civil, canon, or Roman) and early modern visual culture. Chaired by Dr. Valérie Hayaert, it specifically probes how images of justice were adapted to conform to local custom in order to retain their effectiveness. However, any topic that addresses early modern European law and visual culture (including but not limited to painting, sculpture, book illustration, and public murals) is welcome and will be considered for inclusion on the panel.

Creative Writing in the Digital Age

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

One immediate side-effect of the current ominous economic climate and general uncertainty of our times has been a downturn in traditional publishing. Even before the COVID-19 crisis, consolidation of publishing houses, the closure of brick-and-mortar bookshops, and the supremacy of Amazon had begun to permanently alter the way creative writing is published. At the same time, creative content on the internet has never been so abundant, with poetry, film, and fiction being shared and streamed in ways that create a flourishing if generally nonremunerative cultural climate. This panel looks at options available to creative writers in the wake of the decline of traditional publishing options.

Alec Pollak
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 13, 2020

We seek papers for a panel at this year's Modernist Studies Assocation annual meeting (Brooklyn, NY, October 22-25) entitled "House Styles: Pulp, Periodicals, Publishing."  From the little magazines that launched a slew of modernist authors' careers to the grassroots periodicals and zines of the 1970s–80s that reintroduced forgotten or out-of-print writings, periodicals have consistently served as counter- and sub-cultural venues for literary production. This panel will consider the intersections between print cultural forms, mechanisms of dissemination, and the constitution of evolving twentieth-century literary canons and tastes.

Marginalia and footnotes are their own genres, but most editors concentrate on the main body of a text. Yet material outside that text body, whether as marginalia or footnotes, can have great bearing on the meaning of the main document.

 

Marginalia and footnotes raise a number of questions:

 

* What is the function of such material?

 

* Who made the marks, and when, where, and why?

 

* As editors, what do we do with them?
