Tales of explorers and adventurers often blur the line between science and fiction, with chronicles of the exotic and the unknown becoming the stuff of legends and the building blocks of history. Explorer’s tales spin heroic stories of adventures that cross borders, shatter boundaries, develop new knowledge, and, in so doing, depict the causes and consequences of seeking dominion over people and places.

A Ponderous Hush: the Poetics and Politics of Silence

updated: 
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:20am
Northeastern MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 15, 2022

Our seminar “A Ponderous Hush: the Poetics and Politics of Silence” approaches silence in a way that can synthesize and deconstruct the overlaps between silence as a concept and as an act, aiming to confront silence's poetics and politics. In an attempt to disengage the topic from views which forefront silence's negativity (as in the "unsayable" or semantic contents which lie outside the sufficient operations of language), we want to interrogate silence as "tacere"/"Schweigen" (the voluntary act of remaining quiet) and "silere"/"Stille" (the absence of sound).

NeMLA 2023 Seminar: Rethinking Resilience: Ways of Seeing and Being in the Pandemic

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 15, 2022

The process that is central to the development of language is the critical encounter between different groups (marked by their "physical, cognitive, neurological differences," as NeMLA's note on "resilience" suggests) in possession of different kinds of valuation in the course of which "certain words, tones, rhythms, meanings are offered, felt for, tested, confirmed, asserted, qualified, changed" (Keywords 12). This process of evolution/metamorphosis, as demonstrated by Raymond Williams in his Keywords,  is often accelerated in periods of unprecedented crisis.

Laughter is a physical manifestation or, as Jean-Luc Nancy wrote, it is “a body shaken by a thought that is not possible”. In a performance of conceptual poetry you hear as much laughter as in a stand-up comedy performance. However, in the academic world, conceptual writing has been treated mainly as a rational endeavor or a cerebral and intellectual exercise. Enthusiasts and critics alike have often read conceptualist works very seriously.

On May 2, 2022, a draft decision leaked from the US Supreme Court confirmed what many had feared: that the highest US court was set to overturn the 1973 decision Roe vs. Wade and roll back protections governing women’s rights. Almost immediately after, appointment books and clinics began to close in multiple US states. This situation was far from isolated; in the U.K., pandemic gains for women in access to early at-home abortion will roll back on August 29th, 2022. As these and other examples from around the world demonstrate, the present moment appears to be one of regression and regulation.

Representations and Visions of the Future in Modernist Literature

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) - 54th Annual Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 15, 2022

Several examples of literature produced from the late Victorian age narrate great concerns about the future and the destiny of humanity, concerns that would be significantly exacerbated in the twentieth century by the First World War, soon followed by the Second, the unspeakable savagery of Nazis, the nuclear detonations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and, last but not least, by the terror of a nuclear apocalypse during the long Cold War. Modernism appears thus as a cultural movement that, as Vincent Sherry maintains, “works most indicatively within an imaginative concept of time interrupted”, of a time that presents itself basically as provisional and utterly deprived of a future.

Diaspora ”has broadly come to mean all people who have a particular country of origin but live outside it either due to the 'pull' or 'push' factor. According to James Clifford, the diaspora is a “signifier”, “not simply of transnationality and movement” (1994, 308). At present, “diaspora” goes beyond the context of geographical migrant and marks a departure from the heterosexual identity of a subject. Homi Bhabha refers to the diasporic existence of the third space, a hybrid location (1994) that was contested by Shackleton (2008) whereas Anita Mannur and Pia Sahni talk about creating a ‘critical space’ for critiquing ‘cultural appropriation” (2011).
