MLA International Symposium Panel Proposal: Memories of Non-Alignment (Lisbon, 23-25 July 2019)

In 2015, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán justified building a border fence to prevent migrants from Asia and Africa from entering Hungary as necessary to preserve Europe “for Europeans.” East and Central European countries in general have become associated with extreme xenophobia and anti-immigrant policies following their acceptance into the European Union. Erased in current debates over these formerly communist countries’ “Europeanness” is a different history of geopolitical positioning, one where they ideologically aligned themselves not with Western Europe, but with anticolonial movements in Asia, Africa and Central and South America during the Cold War.

CFP—British Crime Series

 

I am seeking chapter proposals for an edited collection on British television crime series. British crime / detective television series are a significant cultural export and have spawned international adaptations. Originally available primarily on public broadcasting stations for North American audiences (giving them a sort of high-brow standing in contrast to their American counterparts), they now form a significant number of programs on Netflix (produced not only by the BBC and ITV, but also in collaboration with Netflix).

 

Latin American Film and Historical Moments in the Continent

Sunday, September 16, 2018 - 7:40pm
NeMLA. The 50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention/Washington DC 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 25, 2018

This session deals with film and history in Latin America. The films in discussion should reflect the major historical moments in the region beginning with the age of “discovery” and conquest, colonial rule and independent times.

Under this historical umbrella, the films in this session should address issues of civilización y barbarie, race, slavery, political persecution, misogyny, homophobia and revolution (among others). Participants should be cognizant that visual narratives dealing with race, class, gender, sexuality, language, nation, and identity reflect philosophical tenets prevalent in particular historical moments.
