All That Remains Is Madness: An Examination of the Tragic Outcome for Women in A24 Films

updated: 
Monday, July 15, 2024 - 4:06pm
Dr. Erica Joan Dymond / NeMLA 2025
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Summary: MidsommarSaint MaudFalse PositiveHereditaryThe Hole in the GroundThe Witch, etc. All of these A24 horror films feature women in crisis. Most are struggling with their mental health, most are betrayed by their loved ones, most are literally or emotionally isolated, and most are victims of an uncaring world. In all cases, the films end with the physical or figurative destruction of woman. She is insane, incinerated, beheaded, broken, forever haunted ... The question remains, should viewers accept these endings? Should they be viewed exploitative or unnecessarily shocking? Or is there room to view these as a warning?

Family Abolition and Social Revolution: Theories of Social Reproduction Now (Panel)

Monday, July 15, 2024 - 2:38pm
Joshua Gooch / NeMLA 25

Monday, September 30, 2024

The last twenty years have marked a wave of renewed interest in social reproduction theory, from the republication of work associated with the 1970s Wages for Housework campaign from theorists like Mariarosa Dalla Costa, Selma James, and Silvia Federici, to new works by Federici and a host of new thinkers focused on questions of social reproduction including Kathi Weeks, Nancy Fraser, Sophie Lewis, M.E. O’Brien, and Premilla Nadasen. Lewis, O'Brien, and Weeks have helped return attention to Marx and Engels's call for "the abolition of the family," and elaborated the history and scope of this demand for social revolution.

Resurrecting Early Modern Women - CONFERENCE

updated: 
Monday, July 15, 2024 - 2:35pm

Monday, September 30, 2024

Description: Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own imagines Shakespeare’s plays being written by Judith, a fabricated sister of Shakespeare, who had escaped an arranged marriage, and turned playwright. Woolf’s text proposes that women need private spaces to write, but this view implies that women during the early modern period were not already prolifically writing, which is not true. Many women during the early modern period were writing and publishing texts across genre, often engaging in political, religious, and social discourse that attempted to revolutionize their societies.

Women's Progress in African Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

From an early stage, the modern African novel has recognized the unjust challenges faced by African women. Even novels of the 1950's, such as Cyprian Ekwensi's People of the City (1954), bear witness to the difficulties that women face in transcending traditional norms as well as modern forms of objectification and exploitation. Even though these novels gesture to the need for better physical and societal realities for women, we may not find in the early novels a plan or vision of what exactly is needed for women to surmount various cultural hurdles and to fully actualize their potential in the modern realm.

The panel "Abortion, Single Motherhood, and Adoption Schemes in Magdalene Literature" will take place at the 56th Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) organised from March 6 to March 9 in Philadelphia, PA. 

Magdalenism is a structure which was implemented from the mid-seventeenth century to the end of the twentieth century in about 60 European and Europeanised countries around the world. Its objective was to control and fashion femininity, women’s social behaviours, and their sexuality. At a time when abortion was illegal in most countries, Magdalene Laundries and Mother and Baby “Homes” were often seen as a “solution” for unmarried pregnant girls and women.

NeMLA 2025: Radical Bodies

updated: 
Monday, July 15, 2024 - 10:29am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Human bodies and, by extension, human subjectivity have long been contested spaces. Against traditional Eurocentric and anthropocentric definitions of the human as a stable identity abstracted from its surrounding environment, movements like feminism, anti-racism, anti- and post-colonialism, and ecocriticism have called out the human’s complicated entrenchment in and with other/othered bodies and landscapes. Posthumanist scholars like Rosi Braidotti define the (post)human body as necessarily relational, nomadic, ever-changing with and in response to others. As such, the body becomes a site for radical transformation through which we may interrogate contemporary issues such as gender and race equity, income inequality, and climate change.

Poetry and Pain (NeMLA 2025)

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:57pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Conference - Philadelphia, March 6-9, 2025
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

The "Poetry and Pain" panel at the NeMLA Conference in spring 2025 will address how pain is felt, articulated, negotiated, alleviated, withstood, or appreciated through poetry and poetics. Elaine Scarry’s formative work, The Body in Pain (1985), describes physical suffering as an inexpressible, singular force that establishes an interpretive void between sufferer and witness. More recently, scholars of disability studies such as Margaret Price have retheorized pain as shared, structural, creative, or even desirable. This session aims to explore the many ways in which poetry thus contends with pain. Does poetry’s speaker/reader construction mimic or alter the sufferer/witness divide?
