NeMLA, Boston, MA. March 5-8

In a 2011 Economist Prospero blog entitled "After the Unthinkable," the effects of 9/11 on literature was compared to those of World War II in that it "will continue to be a marking point." As we approach the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, this panel seeks to move beyond representations of the day itself to explore the various nuances of post-9/11 literature by looking at how the long political and cultural aftermath have left their mark on literary and visual culture.

Open Session on the Neoavanguardia, the Novissimi, the neosperimentali, et alii. (Panel in Italian Language and Literature)

As Maria Corti has written, the strength of all artistic avant-gardes may be found in their “foolish squandering of the past” and of how literature plays host, in precise historical moments, to writers who consider their role irreconcilable with those who preceded them; who believe it is their destiny to live among the gravestones of tradition; and believe they are engaged, in “incandescent conversation,” with the future. The panel invites participants to debate the enduring contributions of the Italian neo-avantgarde against the background of social and political upheaval that characterized Italy in the 1960s.

Global Literature in the Wake of the Trump Presidency

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 9:15am
Richard Schumaker NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This roundtable endeavors to assess the influence of Donald Trump’s presidency on literature in the US and around the world. Three avenues of inquiry will be featured. First, how has the Trump presidency influenced literature in the US since 2016? Second, are there commonalities between writing in the US and writing internationally owing to the Trump presidency? Finally, focusing on non-US writing, are there perspectives or themes in global literature that are not at all present in US writing that have occurred in the wake of Trump’s presidency?

One of the strengths of comparative literature is that by definition it offers a pluralistic perspective on concrete world events.
