What can quantification, statistics, and algorithms contribute to our understanding of literary works, trends, or history? How can engagement with data be productive, contributing to traditional research strategies by adding more options of interpretation and analysis? We welcome proposals for an edited volume on the possibilities – and limitations – of applying computational methodologies to the study of modern Hebrew literature from the Haskalah to contemporary times, all genres, including translation studies.

 

Please send abstracts by December 1, 2023 (500 words, and preliminary bibliography) in which you define your project: corpus, methodology, innovation, context, and connection to traditional literary study.

 

NeMLA 2024: El archivo del futuro: memes, influencers y otras narrativas de la viralidad

Este panel invita a explorar la cultura de internet del mundo hispanohablante y sus representaciones en producciones artísticas. El meme fue acuñado por el biólogo Richard Dawkins en 1976 para referirse a la difusión de “tunes, ideas, catch- phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or builduing arches” (249) mediante procesos de imitación. Décadas más tarde, el estudio de Patrick Davison (2012) corroboraría que la idea de “meme” había evolucionado gracias a las redes sociales y había pasado a tener el poder de exclusivamente cumplir un objetivo humorístico. Autores como B. E. Wiggins y G. Bret Bowers (2014) argumentan que la circulación del meme es una herramienta conversacional que alienta la participación de la cultura digital.

Post-COVID Composition NeMLA 2024 Roundtable: Digital Natives and their Discontents: The Post-pandemic College Writing Classroom

Saturday, September 30, 2023

In this roundtable session, we intend to prompt a conversation about the prevailing beliefs concerning “digital natives” in the context of the pandemic-era college writing classroom. As most current college writing students have had some experience, typically for the first time, with online learning in high school during the pandemic, we want to foster a discussion about college instructors’ experiences of their students’ abilities, including the associated opportunities and pitfalls, in attempting to navigate these online academic environments.

Reading the World Computer: Assessing Meaning Making and the Tell-Tale Gender of Artificial Intelligence

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Any philosophical consideration of the current zeitgeist requires an assessment of the quasi-object ( Latour 1993) constellation of Artificial Intelligence and its affordances without giving in to either knee-jerk optimism or unchanneled pessimism. For if doomsday was indeed near (as social media discourses want us to believe), and human labour progressively redundant to the machinations of human-made artificial intelligence, what is the limit case scenario, which makes such a provocation real, tangible and material beyond fatalistic projections of obsolescence? How does that reconfigure the idea of the Human as both the object and subject of cybernetic capital?

Man and the Machine: Exploring the Future of AI Literature

The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

In a world saturated with images in which audiovisual storytelling has dominated for decades shaping the aesthetics and expectations of the audience, and in which binge-consuming TV series on digital platforms and homemade videos on social media have become the trend of the last few years, it is quite unexpected to witness the reemergence of a storytelling that resists visual representation.  Of course, audio storytelling is not new; Stories voiced for the ear to listen have been with us since early on, for as long as there have been stories to share. What has changed in recent years, whetting our story-listening appetite anew, are the computing technologies ever rapidly developed for audio production, distribution and reception.

Extremely Online: The Internet and Connectivity in the 21st Century Novel

updated: 
Friday, September 1, 2023 - 10:00am
NeMLA 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2023

Though the Internet has been around since the 1980s, the “Internet novel” as a genre has only really emerged in the last decade or so. We can think of Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts (2021), Patricia Lockwood’s No One Is Talking About This (2021), and Calvin Kasulke’s Several People Are Typing (2021) as notable recent examples. Each of these novels take as their topic the particular and peculiar confines of the digital world we live in. Lockwood has described this sensation as falling through a “long void that never reaches the bottom,” while Brandon Taylor claims that “the Internet Novel captures some of the weird Gothic horror that white people have come, by way of their new digital Calvinism, to accept as being inherent to digital life.”

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2024

Due in part to well-publicised advancements in generative AI technologies such as GPT-4, there has been a recent explosion of interest in – and hype around – Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. Whether this hype cycle continues to grow or fades away, AI is anticipated to have significant repercussions for fandom (Lamerichs 2018), and is already inspiring polarised reactions. Fan artists have been candid about using creative AI tools like Midjourney and DALL-E to generate fan art, while fanfiction writers have been using ChatGPT to generate stories and share them online (there are 470 works citing the use of these tools on AO3 and 20 on FanFiction.net at the time of writing).

Surplus Data/Surplus Subjects

Northeast Modern Langauge Assocation (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Subtitled “Surplus Data,” the Winter 2022 issue of Critical Inquiry began by proclaiming that, “It is no longer enough to say that data is big. Data is now in a state of surplus” (Halprin et al. 197). As private and state actors rush to generate ever more surplus surveillance data about consumer-citizens and workers across domains of life, literary scholars are compelled to question how this data is made meaningful and by whom. After all, data never speaks for itself; it must be assigned value and transformed into narratives. These surveillance stories often reify “identities of suspicion” (Monahan), marking marginalized people as themselves surplus subjects.

Premodern Digital Ecologies | 59th International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 9-11, 2024)

Aylin Malcolm & Andrew Richmond (Co-Organizers), along with Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2023

The intersection of the digital and environmental humanities speaks to our current moment: we live amid ecological changes that we seek to understand, mitigate, and publicize through new technologies. Medieval studies has long been at the forefront of the digital humanities, while ecocriticism and environmental history have advanced our understanding of how medieval people conceived of the nonhuman world. Recently, these threads have come together in adapting modern digital tools to study premodern experiences of local and evolving environments. Our panel centers this exciting area of study in anticipation of a forthcoming issue of Digital Philology on the same topic.
