Proposed Panel: Women Filmmakers Around the Globe

 

Of late, there is a decided increase in the attention toward women’s contributions to culture and media, both in the popular press and academic literature. Numerous writers have documented historical achievements, contemporary struggles, everyday lived experiences, and cultural and societal triumphs of women’s experiences, particularly in screen media.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Literary Dialogue with Chinua Achebe

Sunday, September 30, 2018

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is among the most prominent and admired young writers of African Europhone fiction. As a Nigerian and Igbo author, she has been linked with one of her renowned predecessors, Chinua Achebe. Indeed Achebe himself paid tribute to Adichie's talent, observing that "Adichie came almost fully made." Clearly one of the influences that shaped that talent has been Achebe's own fiction. Adichie's novels and shorter fiction allude to and draw on elements of Achebe's work, and this panel will explore dimensions of storytelling, history, politics, gender, and culture that create a complex and rich dialogue between the two authors.

Analog Games and Gender 

Panel for Game Studies Section

PCA 2019

Washington DC

April 17-20,2019

Concepts of gender have been a cornerstone of contemporary discussion in the field of game studies (Hayes 2011; Kafai et al 2008; Shaw 2014; Williams, Ratan, and Harrison 2011) . While much of the research is firmly tied to video games, understandings of gender in analog games has slowly come to the fore. Increased media related to live action role playing games (larp), the unpredicted resurgence of Dungeons & Dragons, and the longevity of collectible card games like Magic The Gathering demonstrate analog games as a durable subsection of game studies that is ripe for academic analysis in terms of gender.

50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.
