NeMLA 2020 Teaching Dickens Now

updated: 
Monday, August 26, 2019 - 9:21am
The Dickens Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

How do we teach Dickens now? What do Dickens’s works have to do with the #MeToo movement; with social media; with the Anthropocene, extinction rebellion, and climate change; with racism and living, as Christina Sharpe has put it, “in the wake” of slavery; with technological rupture, the gig economy, and radical job transformation; and with other questions of modern life? What do we do with Dickens’s long prose and today’s allegedly shorter attention spans and alternative narrative forms?

This panel invites scholars to address what Dickens’s fiction offers the present and why Dickens matters now. The Dickens Society requests paper proposals (250-500 words) for the panel “Teaching Dickens Now” (ID 18079).

Humour: 2nd Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 4, 2019

Humour seems to be an essential feature of human life – ‘the ability to be amused by things, the way in which people see that some things are amusing, or the quality of being amusing’ (Merriam-Webster). It is not just about jokes but a way of looking at the world. Individually, it is beneficial to health, relieving negative energy and invigorating the mind and the body. Socially, it is an indicator of frankness and sociability. Economically, it generates communication, improves teamwork and increases efficiency. Politically, it is an important form of protest and disobedience. Historically, it has proven to be a powerful weapon in times of crisis. And it can be wielded negatively, as a weapon or entrée into dark social arenas such as racism or hatred.

Making the Most of Our Disciplinarity: Writing Connections Among Composition and Literature Courses

updated: 
Monday, August 19, 2019 - 11:05am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Depending on the institution, the department, the politics, and the history of a space, composition and literature faculty often face constant pressure to legitimize or explain the work that we do. However, few opportunities are available to do so in real and tangible ways with departments and faculty outside of our own. This panel seeks to explore the ways that writing and English courses function within and across institutions throughout the country in an effort to develop real-time strategies that increase the visibility of our work, including its interdisciplinarity. How can we increase collaboration with faculty outside of our own silos in order to foster a stronger writing culture across campuses?

Who Belongs, Who Does Not: The Use of Comics as Literatures of Resistance

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 12:28pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA 2020)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This creative panel seeks to examine how artist-scholars can combine their scholarship and their creative skills to articulate various forms of marginalization. I intend to solicit creative works that lie at the intersection of the textual and the pictorial, which push the boundaries of scholarly inquiry by incorporating the artistic, in an effort to make research more accessible to people outside the academe. As a comic scholar and artist, I firmly believe in the versatility of its hybrid form and its ability to solicit deeply affective responses (which cannot be achieved by purely empirical data).
