South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

updated: 
Thursday, August 25, 2016 - 8:26pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.

Avid comic book fans sat appalled in theatres as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel reached the climax of the film in which Superman kills his enemy Zod. Snyder’s film raises the question of whether this killing and the death of Zod could actually fit with Superman’s traditional moral compass. From Man of Steel to the CW’s Arrow and Flash series to the Avengers franchise, comic book characters are facing new ethical developments in their rejuvenation that both encompass and go beyond the idea of killing one’s enemy.

This panel seeks to shed light on these adaptations across languages, cultures, religions, and even platforms (theatre, TV, cinema, video games, social media, and other forms of pop culture).

Bibliography Among the Disciplines Conference

12–15 October 2017, Philadelphia, PA

The book territorializes and deterritorializes. It binds together materials, technologies, and labor from far and abroad--a letter from Goa, an editor in Rome, Chinese paper, German engravers, Italian leather, English capital--only to be dispersed and reconstituted, from hand to hand, collection to collection, dismembered, reassembled, and reinvented for new audiences in new locations.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

La crítica literaria se ha ocupado extensamente de diversas representaciones de fenómenos como la violencia, la guerra, las dictaduras, la represión, las revoluciones y el exilio en la literatura latinoamericana, pero se ha dejado de lado el estudio de una de las reacciones humanas que más estrecha conexión tiene con estos fenómenos: el miedo. De forma directa o indirecta, el miedo ha estado presente como tema constante en las obras literarias de diversos géneros, épocas, filiaciones estéticas, compromisos ideológicos y agendas políticas, dentro de un espacio como el de Latinoamérica, tan convulso como diverso política y socialmente.
