The Secular and the Literary: Re-thinking Analysis and Interpretation in Light of Post-Secularism

updated: 
Tuesday, June 16, 2020 - 9:54am
NEMLA 2021- North East Modern Language Association 52nd Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Ever since Charles Taylor (A Secular Age) and Talal Asad (Formations of the Secular) questioned the supremacy of secularization, scholars in the fields of philosophy, sociology, and anthropology have used post-secularism to analyze gender, state violence, religion, pain, the senses, and more. This perspective has helped us to consider how secularization has been accepted as normative and inevitable, and how it functions as a disciplinary apparatus or as a constructed ideology.

Migration, Humanities, and the Crisis of the Contemporary

updated: 
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 4:02am
NeMLA 2021 Seminar Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This collaborative, seminar-style panel invites an exploration of aesthetic interventions that respond to urgent concerns of contemporary migration. By analyzing the ways in which literature and the visual, performing, and conceptual arts engage with these issues, the panel interrogates how the humanities respond to the lexical and affective demands posed by the contemporary moment. How have our vocabularies as humanists been altered by discourses around migratory movements? In what ways can humanistic thought reframe ideas of rights, citizenship, sovereignty, and borders in light of present-day crises?

Illness, Medicine, and Literature: The Significance of Storytelling in Healthcare Settings

updated: 
Thursday, June 4, 2020 - 11:48am
Reem EL Khalili/ NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

We tend to look at medicine and the arts & humanities as two separate entities unaware that they are similar. Medicine is affiliated with rationality while the arts & humanities are affiliated with emotions. As a result, a number of gaps exist between Medicine and Literature that need to be closed. In this session, I would like to expand upon the practice of storytelling in Healthcare settings and the ways in which it allows for a more patient-centered approach. I would also like to examine our roles as literature, language, and creative writing scholars in bridging the gaps between the two disciplines, attempting to improve the mental health of healthcare professionals through the act of writing, and contributing to a better healthcare system.

Conceptualizing the Body: Identity, Intimacy, and Intervention

updated: 
Thursday, June 4, 2020 - 11:46am
NeMLA 2021 Conference Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Bodies, and representations of bodies, surround our everyday existence. Our bodies, and the bodies around us, are subject to norms that police how a body should look or behave in a given context. Glamorous and desirable bodies draw positive attention and literary and cultural representations reflect this, while deviant bodies are policed and regulated. This panel aims to explore how various bodies are represented in contemporary culture as well as analyze how these representations impact our perceptions of self and world. In a moment where the international political landscape is reliant on the policing and weaponizing of bodies, it is more important than ever before to consider how conceptions of bodies foster these divisions.
