(Extended Deadline Oct. 15) NeMLA 2022: Sex in Literature After #MeToo

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 1:11pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

In recent years there has been increased attention to conversations concerning consent, sexual violence, and rape. The stories of survivors have been an important tool for informing the public about these issues and providing healing. First-hand nonfiction accounts of sexual violence like A Woman in Berlin, Know My Name, and Willow Weep for Me have helped to destigmatize conversations about rape and sexual assault and problematized mainstream understandings of these concepts. Novels like The Handmaid’s Tale have also been able to question what sex and pleasure could look like within a rape culture.

NeMLA Roundtable: Genre of the Sketch in Long 19-century American Literature

updated: 
Saturday, October 2, 2021 - 7:52am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

As one of the most versatile genres in long 19th Century American literature, the sketch appears in a variety of forms, including short stories, parts of longer novels, essays, biographies, brief plays, poetry, and more. What characteristics, if any, unite this breathtakingly diverse genre? Without a common theme or style, sketches change radically over time and between authors. Some sketch writers endeavor to render characters, scenes, or events from real life, like Louisa May Alcott when she recounts her experiences as a Civil War nurse in Hospital Sketches. Similarly, regionalist writers such as Francis Parkman, George Washington Cable, or Bret Harte present impressions of people and places.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

The tern Genocide was coined by Raphael Lemkin in 1944, in a context heavily influenced by the events of the Jewish Holocaust.

-Killing members of the group

-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

-Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring physical destruction in whole or in part

-Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group

-Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

The IAAS Postgraduate Symposium “The (Hi)stories We Create: Narratives of Exceptionalism, Ideology, and Resilience”

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

In November 1621 colonists in Massachusetts celebrated a year of survival and their first harvest  with a feast that has since been called The First Thanksgiving. The feast was a supposed  celebration of resilience after hardship. It was not until 1863, in the midst of the American Civil  War and with the nation divided, that this feast was enshrined as a national holiday and a  touchstone of American tradition and ideology: a story of togetherness projected over the  realities of division, exceptionalism, genocide, and slavery.

Throughout history, patriarchy has created a woman myth to define women’s sexual and gender identity, confining them into motherhood, madness, or monstrous images to devalue their role in society.
