This panel will reconstruct, evoke and study the traumatic event of the Spanish Civil War, and its consequences in different ways. We also will explore current efforts in Spain to recover what is referred to as an “historical memory” of both the war and the Franco dictatorship, which followed it. We will analyze issues of trauma, exile, memory, identity and gender. Panel’s goal is to include voices silenced during the dictatorship and the democracy because of a lack of an historical memory law and a male dominated society.

Flash fiction is as old as Aesop’s fables, as recent as microfiction on blogs. But what works best in a limited space, who are some of the best practitioners of this brief form, and why? Is there an emerging praxis or theory for writing and teaching flash fiction as there once was for short stories? Any fresh angle on this subgenre is welcome, but preferably with an emphasis on analysis and technique and something intrinsic to the form, not just a reading of a particular short short story. 300-word abstracts, please, to https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16145

“Daring Second Glances: Rereading the Rape Narrative” elicits new perspectives on well-known texts that depict sexual violence. This panel seeks to curate a trans-historical discussion about new ways to approach representations of sexual violence. In her book Framing the Rape Victim, Carine Mardorossian argues that postmodern feminists of the 1990s ironically placed the onus of rape deterrence back on women when they “began locating the source of women’s sexual oppression in the representational and rhetorical codes of feminism rather than in societal norms” (42).

Kaiju is a familiar trope in film and television that places giant monsters in direct conflict with fellow monsters and/or everyday citizens. While a larger-than-life creature that attacks Tokyo is likely the most familiar form of kaiju, additional iterations include apes, dragons, dinosaurs, and even robots. Kaiju as a genre has evolved along with cinema; technical developments no longer require men stomping around in rubber costumes as CGI enables bigger and more frightening monsters to haunt our screens. With a timeless kitsch quality, kaiju is solidly placed within our collective pop culture psyche.

Precarious Subjects: Human Rights, Humanitarianism, and Refugee Narrative
In his three volume study of technological historicity, Technics and Time, Bernard Stiegler contends that contemporary culture is characterized by the incessant technological exteriorization of our interiors. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sustain a constant and seemingly stable feed of our psychological maneuvers in a variety of media. But what happens when the words, photos, or sounds you just posted are subject to commentary, reframing, and sometimes deletion? This is precisely what occurs in online creative writing collaboration.
The Massachusetts Center for Interdisciplinary Renaissance Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst will host its fourteenth annual graduate student conference on Saturday, October 1st, 2016. We are delighted to welcome Diana Henderson of MIT as our keynote speaker.
