MLA2023:Navigating COVID as a Graduate Student: Situations on Our Campuses

updated: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - 4:30pm
The MLA Committee on the Status of Graduate Students
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

COVID has drastically changed how individuals navigate their worlds. Many university campuses and graduate programs have made changes. Current graduate students finishing their PhD program and future incoming cohorts, for example, will face new difficulties. Will funding continue to be available? Will campuses remain open, specifically student housing? Will campuses improve the experiences of disabled and marginalized groups so that campus services are not only theoretically accessible to all graduate students but also equitably distributed? How has COVID impacted you and how do you navigate graduate school?

Better State Forms (MLA 2023)

Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 11, 2022

We need to rethink the state. No one loves to hate the state more than a humanist. Yet does this critique serve us well? What do we mean by “the” state? Humanities scholars often take for granted a unified and homogenous idea of the state as a basis for critique. The settler colonial state, the necropolitical state, the neoliberal state; or perhaps less negatively, the welfare state, the developmentalist state, the liberal state. As this plethora of familiar models suggests, it should be impossible to talk about “the” state as a singular form, to equate it with one function or to define it by one pattern of experience. And yet such singular imaginaries often underpin humanistic engagement with the state.

Over the past few decades we have seen a sharp rise in the number of central female characters in TV series, offering a wide palette of complex female identities, characters following very diverse narrative journeys. Whether we have in mind the genius and tortured nature of the heroine of Homeland (Showtime, 2011 - 2020) and Killing Eve (BBC One, 2018 -). Or the whole gallery of characters in Orange is the New Black (Netflix, 2013 - 2019) or the different seasons of This is England (Channel 4, 2006 – 2015),the importance of central female figures is well established and even conveyed and measured by monitoring centres of the audio-visual sector.
