The experience of growing up in Latin America for the past two centuries has been marked by constant negotiations with precarity, postcoloniality and multiple forms of violence. Numerous literary and audiovisual productions have drawn attention to this issue. In this session, we invite critical examinations of coming-of-age narratives and bildungsroman dealing with bi-cultural or multi-cultural identities, picaresque and heterodox processes of learning, non hetero-normative sexualities, as well as other alternative processes of development and growth.

The question of cosmopolitanism has been crucial to the literatures of Latin America during the 20th and 21st centuries. At the turn of the past century modernistas and vanguardistas proposed innovative views of cultural cosmopolitanism that traced the geopolitical shifts of the continent. Later, as Magical Realism became a global phenomenon, this originally Latin American aesthetics would come to be celebrated as the literary language of the postcolonial world (Bhabha).

In A New Vocabulary for Global Modernism (2016), Eric Hayot and Rebecca L. Walkowitz call for thinking about modernism from a global perspective, in order to recover and examine “local instances of modernism...[with] the traces of world thinking and world imagining that both respond to...global pressures...and anticipate into being the structures of feeling that...shape the world we live in” (8-9).

NeMLA 2021 Session: Narratives of the Economy in the Global South

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The global COVID-19 crisis, and its economic fallout, have re-established two facts - that the economy is a fictive category, and that its inimitable centrality derives essentially from the power of its narratives. Prior to actual policies of austerity or re-openings of the economy, there exist narratives of weathering storms as character-building or the inalienable connection between economic and individual freedom. These narratives help us imagine the economy as a system; most often it becomes palpable because we have learned to tell stories about its origins, maintenance, purity, precarity, and futures. These stories acquire unique characteristics in the global south, a geopolitical category itself that narrativizes economic agon.

The issue intends to bring to the fore the writings of women from colonial and postcolonial era of South Asia, particularly exploring how these women writers addresses the issues of violence, speculating identity and belongingness while defying stereotypes in primarily male literary traditions as a focal point. Moreover, the proposed issue considers how different literary genres ranging from novels, poetry, novellas, short stories, memoirs to autobiographies by South Asian women writers present an exclusive and inimitable insight into varied understandings of pre-constructed gender roles and relations in the context of south Asian society and culture.

CFP – Beyond Borders: Empires, Bodies, Science Fictions

11th-12th September 2020

Keynote Speakers: Dr Nadine El-Enany and Florence Okoye

 

A border, like race, is a cruel fiction
Maintained by constant policing, violence
Always threatening a new map.

from Wendy Trevino, 'Brazilian is Not a Race'

 

As a result of the ongoing crisis this conference will have to take place online, with the possibility of some optional in-person elements. We think now more than ever is a time to question the role of borders in our lives and so we want to proceed with this conversation. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to get in touch. 

Panel: Decolonizing German Studies: Literature of Migration as Catalyst?

updated: 
Thursday, May 7, 2020 - 2:30pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Decolonization is a growing niche in German Studies [e.g. works of Kien Nghi Ha, Dirk Göttsche, Jürgen Zimmerer] – but a niche, nonetheless. Yet Germany has been and is changing. Aladin El-Mafaalani writes: “Die Integration von Teilen in ein Ganzes verändert dieses Ganze” (83, 2018). A (more) diverse Germany necessitates comprehensive contention with its complicated past, laying bare the various structures of oppression that consciously and unconsciously impede or prohibit integration and cohabitation. Furthermore, Decolonial theory necessitates such a discussion, positing that modernity and coloniality are co-constituent: colonialism is not an effect of modernization but an element of its foundation.

Published at the height of the imperial enterprise, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) has a long and intricate backstory. It is, in fact, the result of centuries of British discovery of and disappointment with the world. One by one, naturalists, amateur anthropologists, merchants, soldiers, diplomats or missionaries from the British Isles discovered the world for the armchair travelers at home and built up their self-esteem by disfiguring countries and regions in writings, paintings, and lectures at the Royal Geographical Society.

Digital technologies have in the last decade profoundly changed China’s cultural landscape. Messaging apps such as WeChat and Chinese-language podcasts have become important platforms for critical debate, whilst the rising popularity of online platforms for fiction writing, video sharing, shopping, movie ratings and gaming reflect new practices of media consumption and reception. State surveillance and censorship play an important role in China’s wired culture, but web-based cultural activities do not only take place in the shadows of a repressive state but also reflect profound social and cultural transformations, technological developments as well as innovative engagements with traditional aesthetics.

Travel is a vehicle for which to explore the condition of living, how our relationships to place shape us and our experiences, how our identities and political histories inform place, how power structures inform how we migrate (or don’t) and how that affects the places we pass through. --Bani Amor, “Getting Real About Decolonizing Travel Culture” (2017)
