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.

NeMLA 2021: Writing Within Interrogative Dynamics (Roundtable)

“Experiment,” suggests Joan Retallack, “is a reaching out to experience things that cannot be grasped merely by examining the state of our own minds.” Here, Retallack is working toward an incisive description of experimental writing’s relationship to scientific experiments. Experimental poetry and science share, according to Retallack, a tendency to engage diverse forms of change, what she calls “an interrogative dynamic.” For this roundtable, we draw a third component into this confabulation by citing moments of crisis as potentially homologous engagements with interrogative dynamics. Within the folds of crisis, past experiences can become a palimpsest and subjects must traverse the unknown.
