NeMLA Annual Convention

5-8 March, 2020

Boston, MA

 

“The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year. Calculating how many Bibles are sold in the United States is a virtually impossible task” says “The Good Book Business” article published in The New Yorker in 2006, underlines the billion dollar industry of Bible-publishing in the U.S.

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include:

Bringing Mythology Back: A Call for the Literary Study of Mythic Narratives

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 11:45am
2020 NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)

Mythological narratives constitute a significant portion of the world’s most influential literature; nevertheless, they are glaringly absent from contemporary literary studies. Students interested in the study of mythology are directed to departments of anthropology, religion, or intellectual heritage, and these fields certainly conduct invaluable examinations of world-mythology; however, myths are unequivocally literary in nature, and their omission in departments of literature is both a detriment to the field and a disservice to world cultures. What went wrong with the study of myth-as-literature, and how can we revive this genre to reinvigorate the field of literary studies?

American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference 2020, Chicago

 

Rabindranath Tagore was the first Nobel Laureate of Asia. He was a multi-talented genius. He experimented in several fields of creativity namely, song, dance, poetry, dramas, short stories, novels, novellas, essays, education, painting and social reformation to name a few. Even after 150 years of his birth, how or why do humankind across the globe still find Tagore universally relevant?  This panel aims to explore these diverse facets of Rabindranath Tagore as perceived from a contemporary perspective. The panel welcomes papers which examines Tagore’s works in comparison to other practitioners, either his contemporaries or in the contemporary society.
