Until not very long ago, support for the independence and self-determination of nations was an indication of a progressive politics and a generous spirit. Not only did Americans celebrate their own independence on the Fourth of July each year with fireworks and music, and parades. As late as the middle of the twentieth century, the independence of other national states, from Greece to India, Ethiopia and Algeria, was widely regarded as an expression of historical justice and redemption.

Lindsay Bryde / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 7, 2019

One of the biggest challenges for LGBTQiA students is the fact that there’s a constant question about regarding their need to “come out” and how to determine who is “safe” (a term with many definitions) to do that with on college campuses today. This panel will look at pedagogy approaches to fostering an inclusive environment and what to do when a student needs guidance and services due to their orientation. Participants are encouraged to present pedagogy methods for educating audiences (questioning, out, ally, and general) and fostering safer spaces. Papers can address approaches/lesson plans in the classroom, as well as resources for instructors in their service activities to the campus.

Georgia State University’s 2020 New Voices Conference: February 7-8th, 2020 in Atlanta GA. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED to October 18, 2019 

Artistic products are cultural artifacts; language and symbols exist as methods of representing new feelings, ideas, and experiences. In turbulent and profound moments of history and personal experience, art and literature attempt to capture and retell the experiences of restlessness, feelings of movement, and reactions to disorder. The 2020 New Voices Graduate Conference invites submissions that consider concepts of (un)rest.

Toni Morrison: The Emancipation Proclamation of the English Language

updated: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 4:41pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 4, 2019

In the documentary, The Pieces I Am by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, David Carrasco calls Toni Morrison, “the Emancipation Proclamation of the English language.” The parallelism he conjures between the historical document and grandeur that is Morrison hints at the idea that she could do what Abraham Lincoln’s indenture could not: Toni Morrison frees black people from fake identities. Laced with the assurance that if others knew what she knows,—that prejudice exists in a hyperreality created by those who need it in order to define their purpose—black people will not accept perceived realities as their own; that their lives have meaning, and their stories can take center stage.

"The Aesthetics of Decay: Creative Modes of Destruction" International Conference Oxford

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:54pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 10, 2019

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siècle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson’s intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

NeMLA recognizes the significant contribution of visual presentations to the body of academic study of literature and other linguistic constructions. Posters can relay complex information in ways that text alone cannot. These sessions are an opportunity for NeMLA scholars to share visual representations of their research. The format of the session allows presenters to display their work in a casual setting and to engage in informal conversations with convention participants regarding their work at a designated place and time.
