Northeast MLA's 53rd CONVENTION
March 10-13, 2022
Don’t you realize that we are worms
born to become angelic butterflies,
that fly towards justice without impediment?
– Dante Alighieri, Purgatorio 10. 124–6
The social media that most college students regularly use facilitate the acquisition of communicative skills, as well as the creation of a classroom community that aids in learning. This panel will explore how social media can be used in the language classroom to promote real-world language proficiency.

And Valeria Luiselli, author of the prize-winning Lost Children Archive (the 2022 novel for “NeMLA Reads Together”), will give our opening address. Please submit abstracts at https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/CFP by September 30, 2021. The conference will be sponsored and hosted by Johns Hopkins University in collaboration with NeMLA’s administrative host institution, the University at Buffalo.

Dreams used to be the Surrealists' favourite terrain to explore, while their interpretation a modus operandi for investigating human psyche 'fossilized' by the pressures of an increasingly urbanized society, war trauma, while doing so against the background of nascent science of psychoanalysis. For this purpose they devised creative strategies like automatic writing, collage, or exquisite corpse to break away from internalized constraints.

We seek articles that explore how the conflation of 2020 events played out in the lives of women.
In 2020, women juggled professional careers and education, childcare and homeschooling, caregiving responsibilities for older family members, and unpaid household labor in the midst of a global pandemic. “Juggling” is perhaps too euphemistic a term for the kinds of pressures and decisions women made, willingly or not, in 2020. In a year that was at once the same experience and unique to every person, women know “the personal may be political, but the difficulties for women that feel personal are actually systemic” (Cheryl Glenn, Rhetorical Feminism and this Thing Called Hope, 73).
After the Pandemic: The State of English
How has COVID-19 affected the already vastly altered landscape of post-secondary English studies, for good and/or for ill? After all, recent years have brought important, ever-growing attention to a range of inequities, even as the public continues to question the value of higher education and the humanities. COVID-19 has only magnified the terrain of higher education, which has been shifting economically, pedagogically, and technologically. Pedagogy invites both commentary and narrative pieces of no more than 15 pages addressing this broad question, from whatever part of the discipline you find yourself.
Writing and Pedagogy: Call for Papers for Special Issue
A gap has crept between what writing for the workplace requires and what professional and technical writing departments that were set up with the purpose of preparing our students for workplace writing are producing. The special issue of Writing and Pedagogy intends to discuss ways that departments, instructor cohorts, and individual instructors are bridging the gap through new approaches to syllabus design, discussion facilitation, digital feedback, incorporation of digital, social media spaces, and teaching innovations.
Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions. Representations of nature’s agency have become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crises.
Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:
For this special issue of The CEA Critic, we seek essays that examine various obstacles to student learning in higher education. To be clear: we are not interested in essays that deal with teaching in the time of COVID per se—our special 2020 COVID issue took on that subject. Rather, now that the end of COVID seems not far off, what other obstacles are inhibiting the success of students?

Food is a basic foundation of culture and society, it is vital to our health and well-being and it plays a significant role in our everyday creative engagement with nature. The shifts in activities surrounding food acquisition, preparation and consumption are not only essential for learning a culinary tradition but for examining a broader societal change.
