Panel description:

Opening & Vanishing Cities: Urban Space & Contemporary Fiction (Panel 17466)

updated: 
Friday, July 6, 2018 - 7:08am
Michael Antonucci/ 2019 Northeast Modern Langauge Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

Following on the writing of Hannah Arendt, Cathy Caruth’s work on trauma and narrative points to a “new history of disappearance.” This panel seeks to explore that “new history” in the context of the transnational space crafted within rhetorics of the American city in contemporary fiction. Writers like Teju Cole, Don DeLillo, and Leslie Marmon Silko expand on those rhetorics—addressing denial and moments of obsessive return—as flight, escape, and migration define their characters’ imaginative renderings of cities, once boundaries have vanished, limits are reached, the fence lines fail and open range surrounds them.

How is individual or collective identity constituted by, or articulated in terms of, ability(ies), broadly conceived? How is such identity expressed in opposition to its other(s), whether in- or dis-ability per se or a specific dis/in/differently abled other? What follows from such constitution or articulation?

Anti-Oppressive Solidarities: 'Third World' Feminism's Leadership against Imperialism

50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.

The Stage and the Comics Page: Graphic Adaptations of Plays, Theatrical Adaptations of Comics

updated: 
Thursday, July 5, 2018 - 11:42am
Northeast MLA 2019, March 21-24
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers that explore adaptations from comics into theater, or from theater into comics. Whether comics adaptations of classic plays, or celebrated graphic narratives that get adapted for the musical stage, the interplay between the stage and the comics page is rich and multi-directional, as both are visual narratives, with very different points of access and methods of meaning-making. The ill-fated Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may not have much in common with a graphic novelization of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, for instance, but they share an attempt to grapple with the intersection of the two media.
