deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

This panel - for NeMLA's 2021 Convention - explores past and current South Asian cinema's use of Shakespearean drama to respond to three questions. First, to what extent are South Asian filmmakers concerned with reenacting the Western dramatic canon? Second, at what point and why do South Asian filmmakers use Shakespeare as a springboard to explore problems and values that are only tangentially Shakespeare's? Third, what are these problems and values and how to they resonate for today’s global, wired audience?

The exploration of prison is not new in literature and theatre. It is one in which convicts tell their stories from the inside. Here, the detained locate their experiences and conditions of prison. According to Arnold Erickson, prison has been a fertile setting for Artists, Musicians and Writers alike. Prisoners have produced hundreds of works that encompassed a wide range of literature books describing the prison experience. Modernist literature and theatre with its eclecticism saw the upsurge in the prison narrative. While Tennessee Williams’ Not about Nightingales establishes the prison genre, John Herbert’s Fortune and Men’s Eyes focuses on the harsh treatment of imprisoned homosexuals.

Giant Steps: Coltrane, Space, and Innovation

The Savoy Ballroom in New York, Preservation Hall in New Orleans, the intersection of 12th Street and Vine in Kansas City, and the Green Mill on Chicago’s North Side all stand as cradles for jazz tradition.

How does one site those spaces though that have housed jazz innovations, like 1511 North 33rd in Philadelphia, John Coltrane’s Strawberry Mansion?Where are the places that jazz can call home? Improvisations and experimentation certainly, but what spaces and which places make those transitions in the artform, its delivery, and reception?

n this troubled and troubling period when “normal” life is suspended and depends on lockdowns whose duration can only be indeterminate in the face of an invisible and devastating evil,
At a time when everyone’s anguish is palpable, dominated by hardships and sacrifices, our civic responsibilities, our humanitarian preoccupations are all the stronger.
In this suspended time, perhaps more than ever, certain words resonate and give birth to thoughts and reflections, i.e. the sharing of ideas, ideas of solidarity, of collaborative deeds or actions, offering friendship, comfort, goodwill...

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This panel seeks to investigate cross-cultural and intercultural exchanges in British literature produced by men and women who traveled to and from the Americas (North, Central, and South) during the long 19th century (1750-1900). It provides a critical examination of the ideological underpinnings and socio-political reasoning for the production of British travel narratives as well as the effects they had on the construction of identity, race, and gender in American and British territories during this period. In doing so, we hope to challenge established academic disciplinary boundaries and provide new insights into the intricate relationships between transatlantic literature, identity, and politics.

This volume intends to offer a systematic re-introduction to feminism’s intellectual legacy.
We encourage an ampler view of feminist theory which extends beyond its production in
the global North and beyond the problematics of location, with the North/South dichotomy
often resulting not only in oppositional notions of agency (active agents vs silent victims)
but also in competing for cultural interests (civil rights and queer theory vs decolonization,
economic justice, and disarmament). One of the aims in reintroducing feminist intellectual
traditions from the perspective of their multiple strands across the globe is to reflect, in as
