Dear colleagues!

We invite you to participate in the online IV. International Conference on Awareness “LANGUAGE and AWARENESS”. Time: 2-4 December, 2020 (Big Blue Button platform).

The language reflects the essence of a thousand-year existence of a man in society, passed through a time filter.

NeMLA Panel: Messages from the 'Front Line': War and/as Representation

updated: 
Thursday, September 10, 2020 - 1:09pm
NeMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The battle against COVID-19 provides the latest example of war used as a metaphor. That is, it exemplifies the persistent, if not seemingly obligatory way that we deploy war as a metaphor against “enemies” such as “crime” and “drugs.” This ubiquitous practice stages metaphorical battlefields and soldiers, including hospitals and healthcare professionals, grocery stores and delivery workers. We might consider how deploying the metaphor of “war” against coronavirus reaps various costs and benefits to its figuration as such. On one hand, local to global populations are recruited to band together against disease. Personal sacrifice and national resources receive renewed attention.

Soil and Superstition: Constructing the Gothic Self

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Lawrence Buell’s essay “The Ecocritical Insurgency” (1999) claims that “human beings are inescapably biohistorical creatures who construct themselves, at least partially, through encounters with physical environments that they cannot not inhabit.” Precisely two centuries earlier, American writer Charles Brockden Brown advocates for a specifically American gothic tradition; Brown adapts the European gothic to American soil.

Learning With Animals: Anthropomorphization and the Animal Mind

updated: 
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 10:46am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While it is considered dubious to anthropomorphize animals to learn about them, learning with animals asks scholars to consider both animal and human ways of being and knowing, as well as where those epistemologies might overlap or diverge. Attempting to learn with animals requires consideration of the value of anthropomorphization. Drawing on the burgeoning field of animal studies, we invite literary scholars to consider how literature imagines animals and their ways of being and knowing—whether alternate or familiar.
