updated:

NeMLA/ hosted by Dr. Jen Sweeney and Jaclyn Marcus
deadline for submissions:

This panel is focused on the employment of fashion by female-identifying authors to discuss issues of inequity, specifically surrounding the themes of gender, sexuality, race, and class in their writing. In this panel, the relationship between text and the sartorial and the capitalization on this relationship by female-identifying authors will be explored. Given the focus of this panel on centering voices across cultures, we especially welcome papers discussing global texts, authors writing in all languages, and analyzing works written from non-Western perspectives.

Space in what we today call Latin America has been increasingly contested since 1492. As a result, many critics have argued that Latin American spaces are constantly subject to rearticulations. Latin American artists have produced poems, novels, short stories, songs, still art, theatre, movies, and other cultural manifestations as vehicles of rearticulation, especially in relation to natural and built environments. Indeed, an especially rich vein of contemporary Latin American cultural production embeds an active ecological awareness. A considerable part of recent ecocriticism addresses how the symbolic potential of art conveys the urgency of environmental concerns.

UPDATED and EXPANDED CFP - Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “Send in the Clowns” or humor. Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the humorous aspects of providing service to one’s country. These stories and experiences have provided mass media laughs in periodicals like Reader’s Digest and in television shows like Gomer Pyle and Mash. No tragedy is complete without inferences of comedy.

Dependent Stages: Knowing in Shakespeare (NeMLA 2020)

A playwright has to build their story within their allotted two hours of stage traffic. We are taken on a guided ride from which we glimpse what the playwright chooses, forming our layers of knowledge through which we are manipulated. Often we are privy to the internal thoughts of a character which contrast with their public utterances: e.g., Rosalind/Ganymede, Angelo, or Richard III. Our prescient view makes Macduff's seemingly banal inquiry about his wife and children emotive fire. Our own knowing is challenged just by taking in a play as we know it is not real, yet we embrace the illusion.

FEW HOURS LEFT_Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging moral values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.

The oldest highway in Southern Asia was named the Grand Trunk Road by the British in the 17thcentury. During the nineteenth century the route carried not just goods for trade, but also British travelers whose numbers increased on the subcontinent as the century progressed. While the Grand Trunk Road was mentioned in Rudyard Kipling’s novel, Kim, many travelers may not have specifically mentioned it in their accounts, but their journeys would have inevitably taken them through such recognizable places on the route like, Calcutta, Delhi, Lahore, and Kabul.
