Margaret Atwood Society

"Boundaries of Life: Ageism and Aging in Works by Margaret Atwood and Doris Lessing." This session, co-sponsored by the Margaret Atwood Society and the Doris Lessing Society, is inspired by the 2017 Presidential Theme, "Boundary Conditions." By focusing on ageism and aging in the works of Atwood and Lessing, two of the twentieth century's most prolific and influential women writers, this panel aims to explore the ways these writers depict the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Some questions papers might answer include: What does it mean to come of age? How do age and the aging process affect how we see ourselves? When and how does one become old? How does age discrimination shape societies and individuals?

Alternate Histories, Alternate Memories (MLA 2017 in Philadelphia)

updated: 
Monday, February 8, 2016 - 1:22pm
MLA Forum on Memory Studies

In examples like Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle or Philip Roth's The Plot Against America, we can see the alternate history genre imagine a multitude of possible pasts, both national and individual. It is those possibilities that lead critics to investigate the constructedness of history and notions of past and future. This non-guaranteed session aims to develop and challenge those readings through the lens of memory studies. How do alternate histories function at the level of collective or individual memory? What are the uses of alternative autobiography? How do necessarily subjective memories achieve authenticity at the level of historical record? How does memory present new possibilities for conceiving of both past and future?

Movement and stasis. Routes to and from home. Boundaries and belonging. Local places and global spaces.

Shifting Tides, Anxious Borders: A Graduate Student Conference in Transnational American Studies (7th Annual) Binghamton University

"Shifting Tides, Anxious Borders" is an interdisciplinary graduate conference dedicated to exploring the changing contours of the field of American Studies. This year's conference theme, "Occupying Nations and Exceptional (dis)Placements," focuses on the theme of exile, otherness, and displacement in local, national, and global contexts. We aim to think transnational American Studies in relationship to occupied spaces of nation and state; we are interested in how these occupations enact, normalize, and hegemonize imperial logics and their displacing effects - materially, historically, and ontologically.
