SOUTH ATLANTIC MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION

November 2-4, 2018

Birmingham, Alabama

 

This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.

Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.

Nineteenth-Century Workshop 2018

 

War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference

 

Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ

October 4-5

 

War as memory.  The fear of war.  War as experience.  How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?  

 

In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.

 

Edited Collection on Short Works of Henry James

Monday, May 7, 2018

Henry James occupies an unusual position in the literary categories of English language fiction. Claimed by both the British and the Americans, as well as by both the 19th century and the 20th, James’ fiction crosses many of the artificially imposed borders our field has created, yet his stories often deal explicitly with the social changes and their consequences that caused the borders to be established in the first place. As we live through yet another period of social upheaval, is James still relevant? What can his short fiction offer a 21st century reader? How might we convey this to our students, many of whom initially find his content dated and his prose challenging?

Panel for SAMLA 90_Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins

SAMLA 90, November 2nd-4th_Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.
