American Ecogothic, NeMLA

Leslie Fiedler describes American fiction as “bewilderingly and embarrassingly, a gothic fiction… a literature of darkness and the grotesque in a land of light and affirmation” (Love and Death in the American Novel, 29). However, for settlers within the early colonies and citizens of the young republic, the wilderness of the supposed New World not only represented material promise, but also unknown danger. This panel proposes a move away from the more common “land of light and affirmation” reading of American nature towards an ecogothic approach.

Reminder: NEMLA 2019: Water as Transcultural Space

This year’s NEMLA conference includes focus on transnational spaces and “the complex processes of transculturation.” Since waterways such as oceans and rivers have historically been both media for and a contested sites of such processes, we invite panelists for a proposed session that will explore water and/as transcultural and transnational space. While we are particularly interested in exploring the cultural, political, and imaginative impulses that can work to turn waterways into transcultural spaces, we are equally interested in explorations of the forces that resist processes of transculturation.

Cognitive Ecocriticism Panel--NeMLA

Todd Owen Williams/Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel proposes to bring together scholars whose work combines ecocriticism and cognitivist approaches to literature for the purpose of considering the potential of the ongoing dialogue between these two fields. Ecocriticism typically looks at how environment is represented and how humans can create an optimal relationship with the non-human world. Cognitive science is generally interested in how humans represent concepts to ourselves and how we make meaning out of those concepts. An understanding of the mind is essential to an understanding of humankind’s relationship to and perception of the non-human environment.

Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.
