48th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association

March 23-26, 2017

Baltimore, Maryland 

 

Victorian-Modernism. An unlikely match that many might consider intrinsically oxymoronic. In this panel, we invite Victorian and Modernist literary scholars to a productive conversation with a dual purpose. First, to trouble the boundaries between these two periods through papers that treat Victorian and Modernist literary texts as companions rather than as strictly periodized texts in opposition. Second, to examine representations of the city as a key site that initiates this dialogue.

Inaugural Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society

The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date.  From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.

 

Race and Ethnicity in the Program Era, NeMLA 2017 [UPDATED]

By recruiting minority writers and teaching them to "write what you know" and "find your voice," MFA programs have generated landmark works of fiction that perform and celebrate marginalized racial and ethnic identities. However, critics argue that the institution of Creative Writing and its aesthetic values are culturally specific and may fetishize racial and ethnic difference for white audiences. Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words about authors or texts that exemplify the intersection of—or friction between—MFA aesthetics and race/ethnicity.

This panel will be part of the 48th annual convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association in Baltimore, MD (March 23-26 2017).

Monster Man: The effect of Romantic masculinities in Frankenstein

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 11:13am
A. Paige Frazier / Purdue University

Saturday, October 1, 2016

This paper expounds on masculine tropes in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in an attempt to identify a root cause for the various oppressions at work in the novel--the oppression of women, indigenous people, and animals. In analyzing these oppressions, readers can see that they begin and are perpetuated by the novel's masculine figures, namely Victor Frankenstein. I also argue that Mary Shelley was aware of the intersectional politics she wrote into her novel, as much of her political life has been erased by the dominant, mascuine literary tradition. Thus, this analysis of Romantic masculinity is not limited to its fictional representation, but also extends to its historical real-life counterparts.
