Novels of the Great War: A Reassessment

updated: 
Friday, May 24, 2019 - 9:05am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This session attempts to examine novels of the Great War in light of over one-hundred years of reading, reflection, and criticism.  

We will use a broad notion of "novel":  novels written during and in the wake of World War I; novels written long after the war ended; and novels written today. 

 Furthermore, we welcome novels written from non-European writers and from authors from countries who did not participate in the Great War.  While the language of the conference is English, because this is primarily a comparative literature session, working directly in a language other than English is both permitted and welcomed.

Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human

Abstracts and articles are sought for an edited collection to be entitled Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human. Ecocriticism examines literary and cultural representations of the natural environment and diverse life forms, often in the context of broader political, economic, and social issues and often with an ethical commitment to sustainability and environmental justice. In this context, ecocritical work may interrogate how texts treat anthropocentrism, or the centralization of humans’ perspectives, needs, and experiences over those of other beings.

PAMLA 2019- Travel and Literature session: 20th and 21st century travel writing

updated: 
Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 1:18pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

The travel and literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey and mobility through a literary lens, with a special interest in 20th- 21st century travel writing.

We are particularly interested in papers that take into consideration travel writing by authors better known for other forms of writing (novelists, poets, philosophers, essayists) and for whom travel, and travel writing, serve as a means to veer from their habitual modes of writing and allow them to experiment with another form (Baudrillard’s Cool memories, Barthes’ Empire of signs, Leiris’ Phantom Africa are examples of travel narratives of interest).

Topics may include:
