neMLA Philadelphia 2021 Round Table (Russian Literature/Eastern Orthodoxy)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 12, 2020 - 1:53pm
Isaac Aday/University of Texas at Dallas
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This panel is dedicated to discussing Eastern/Russian Orthodox traditions, morality, culture, hagiography, iconography, mysticism, practices, monasticism, and beliefs as they pertain to (or appear within) Russian and Slavic literature. Discussions of religious influence are critical to the study of many of the greatest Russian authors and poets--Dostoevsky and Tolstoy amongst many others. Still, little scholarship has explored how both Dostoevsky and Tolstoy had extraordinarily different views of the Orthodox faith and of Christianity in general, and how this might have influenced their existential perspectives of life and death, meaning and purpose, as well as their works.

Designing the Self

Saturday, May 30, 2020

Humans navigate personal and social relationships in the world through self-definition. Human nature is a capacious concept; one that has been challenged by diverse cultural revolutions in history. Today, as we stand at the crossroads of the human and the digital, technologies force us to reflect on how we view, create, and alter our selves through multiple media. As we enter the age of new media, and algorithms, the interpretations, perceptions, and representations of the self are continuously altered, while our identities become more fragile multiple and fluid.

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities solicits submissions for a special issue on Latin American women filmmakers, guest edited by Nora Glickman (CUNY) and Patricia Nuriel (Wofford College).

Over the past four decades the increasing number of women film directors in Latin America has provided a substantial contribution to the field of world cinematography, adding original perspectives that deconstruct conventional conceptions on filmmaking. Their work sheds light across a vast spectrum of themes such as inquiries of history and memory, denunciation of dictatorships, condemnation of violence against minorities and the environment, and exploration of female sexuality.

The political narrative of immigration trends is that people are fleeing their countries to exploit American resources. Immigrants are generally depicted as violent, the cause of crime and job loss, not only in America but around the world. The undercover criminal narrative overshadows that of the risk-taker, willing to leave what is familiar to improve the life of his or her family. The stereotype of violent behavior overshadows the violence enacted upon them by their host countries which have put many immigrants in the situations they are in today. It is well documented that immigrants, and especially undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes.

This year’s conference theme, “Cultures of Collectivity,” in some ways, seems tailor-made for the Religion and Literature permanent section. Religious communities, either local, national, or global, come to mind. However, we might also think of “collectivity” more broadly. Because the subject of Religion and Literature covers all genres, subgenres, regions, religions and folklore we welcome proposals that address works and writers who explore any aspect of “Cultures of Collectivity.”

Possible approaches to this topic might include examinations of how literature explores:

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

The Journal of Gender, Ethnic, and Cross-Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary journal with the primary goal to facilitate the examination of the intersection among gender, cultural, and ethnic studies. Published biannually, this journal seeks to invigorate discussions of the global mobilization of people, ideas, and capital, and the ways in which this circulation has influenced conceptions of gender, ethnicity/race, migration, and culture. In the very same way, the journal examines the gendered nature of cultures and cultural encounters across borders. It is committed to facilitating intersectional, interdisciplinary dialogue which results from the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.

ON-LINE CONFERENCE

CFP:

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

    Our first conference on racism, nationalism and xenophobia took place in March 2016. The second adition was held in June 2017. We hosted over 80 scholars representing universities and research institutions from all over the world.
