Where are your monuments, your battles, martyrs?

Where is your tribal memory? Sirs,

in that grey vault. The sea. The sea

has locked them up. The sea is History.

Call for papers for a roundtable at the 2018 Northeast Modern Language Association conference in Pittsburgh, April 12-15. 
Deadline for Submission: September 30, 2017.

This roundtable will examine teaching methods and strategies for addressing the fiction of terrorism in the contemporary literature classroom. With a focus on teaching after 9/11, and in a moment fraught with tensions about politics and secondary education (see, for example, the “Professor Watchlist”), this roundtable will also address the ways faculty can frame their classes—not only for the students they teach, but for a general public concerned with the politics of college and university faculty.

UPDATE: Imagining Other Worlds: Setting in Early Modern English Drama

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Every play imagines its own world—but the worlds they imagine must in some way connect with their audience, both past and present. This panel invites perspectives on early modern English drama that considers the balance between these two poles: the imagined world of the setting and its connection to the surrounding culture in early modern England. This balance is particularly important in early modern English drama for both historical reasons—an increased awareness of other worlds and their different reality within the expanding cultural purview of the early modern English—and literary ones—since so much criticism of these plays has focused on their relation to early modern England itself to the exclusion of their frequently quite disparate settings.

Economics and SF

How does SF represent and reflect on economic life?

How do finance, value, exchange, production, and the everyday economic reality of people’s lives appear in SF? How might SF contribute to the ongoing evolution of economics? And what might creators of science fiction, as custodians of radical visions of social organisation, learn from economics at this critical moment?

Lacan and the Post-Modernists

deadline for submissions:

The panel will explore three questions: Is it possible to establish a precise relationship between Jacques Lacan and post-modernist literature in general? Can one isolate specific important themes in post-modernist literature and establish connections between these themes and Lacan? Focusing on the Oedipus conflict as it developed in Lacan, can one establish relationships between Lacan and post-modernist writers?

 

This panel has two underlying goals.

Constructing South Asian National Identity in Literature and Film: Confluences on the Asian Subcontinent

When Partition created India, East Pakistan (later Bangladesh) and West Pakistan in 1947, the nationhood of these new states moved from the theoretical to the real in dramatic fashion, setting up complexities and contradictions that continue to reverberate into the present day. This panel will investigate the past, present, and future of these South Asian nations’ search for cultural identity in an examination of their fiction, poetry, and film.
