This Northeast Modern Language Association panel will examine the relationship between detective fiction and technology, broadly defined. Why do detective characters choose their technologies—notebooks, magnifying glasses, DNA analysis? How can we read detectives as figures in active response to emerging technologies? Does technology pose its own mysteries which require the negotiation of the detective figure, or is the detective himself or herself a technological development?

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.

DEADLINE APPROACHING-September 30, 2014

We seek proposals for an approved panel for the 2015 NEMLA conference in Toronto.

Through consistent creation of powerful female heroines the likes of which we have never seen in Victorian literature, Steampunk has emerged as a strong feminist voice that addresses contemporary and current discourses on femininity simultaneously and rethinks our ideas of Victorian gender roles. This panel seeks to examine how Steampunk Young Adult and graphic novels subvert Victorian patriarchy and Empire by creating an alternate past that reimagines them both. Please submit 300-word abstract and bio.

Area: British, Women's and Gender Studies

This special Spring 2015 issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities will focus on Alfred Hitchcock, the "master of suspense" whose career spanned from the 1920s to the 1970s. Hitchcock produced and directed over fifty motion pictures, in addition to hosting two anthology series on television. His film craftsmanship is still relevant today, as his influence is continuously cited by contemporary filmmakers and he is regularly taught in cinema classes. For this special issue, we will be looking for scholarly articles, book reviews, and nonfiction essays that explore various aspects of Hitchcock's work and personal life, and how the two often connected: music, television, gender, humor, voyeurism, film history, or film theory, to name just a few.
