Catastrophe and Literature

Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks to explore representations of mass atrocity, war, and civil strife in literature of French expression. There has been a wealth of cultural production around human-made catastrophes in global or neo/colonial contexts, wherein dire situations propelled and complicated by geographic or sectarian identities are recounted through an individual lens. Whether the author is speaking from the perspective of a witness or working through received memory, s/he must often contend with multiple conflicting interpretations proffered by various factions. 

South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities. 

A 'Divided' Kingdom: Poetics of Difference in the Medieval British Isles

Medieval Makars Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2016

In studying the work of the medieval Scottish makars, the consideration of the relationship between Scotland and England is a crucial part of establishing a distinctly Scottish expression of nationhood. Though there is much to discuss regarding the tensions that arise between these two countries in particular, this panel aims to explore the notion of difference within the British Isles on a broader scale, encouraging the study of resistance to the English literary hegemony, as articulated by voices of other bordering nations.

Kalamazoo Medieval Congress 2017: Theorizing Orientalism in the Middle Ages: A Roundtable

When Edward Said rooted orientalism’s “formal existence [in] the decision of the Church council of Vienna in 1312,” he invited medievalists to investigate their corpus in an effort to theorize the origin point of his new theoretical paradigm. Since this claim, scholars such as Sharon Kinoshita, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, Geraldine Heng, Suzanne Conklin Akbari, and Kim Phillips, among many others, have questioned the role of orientalism in discourses of alterity, colonialism, imperialism, nationalism, and cross-cultural exchange in the Middle Ages.

The fluid space of the Indian Ocean and its territorial rims, i.e. Africa, Middle East, South Asia, South East Asia, were 'deterritorialized' and 'reterritorialized' not only by the forces of capital but also by knowledge-power nexus during and after the colonial period. In the age of neoliberal globalism, the story of the Indian Ocean has gained a renewed interest as it reminds us of the greatest mobility and traversal with such an impact that it forces us to rethink how the processes of such encounters operate and what the areas stand for.

Bibliography Among the Disciplines Conference

12–15 October 2017, Philadelphia, PA

The book territorializes and deterritorializes. It binds together materials, technologies, and labor from far and abroad--a letter from Goa, an editor in Rome, Chinese paper, German engravers, Italian leather, English capital--only to be dispersed and reconstituted, from hand to hand, collection to collection, dismembered, reassembled, and reinvented for new audiences in new locations.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 5, 2016

Frank Yerby, over the course of his literary career, published thirty-three books. Throughout his lifetime, he sold millions of copies of those books becoming a millionaire in the process. Even with these successes, Yerby remains a footnote in the histories of American literature. As such, we seek to organize a panel for the 2017 College Language Association in Columbia, Missouri, on Frank Yerby’s work and life.
