Panel for SAMLA: Mothering as Resistance: Creating/Subverting Networks of Care as Acts of Resistance

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 9:15am
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

In summer of 2017, Wonder Woman challenged cultural assumptions of box office superheroes and positioned motherhood as an integral part of a feminist resistance. But motherhood as an act of resistance began long before Wonder Woman’s re-introduction to mainstream pop culture. Motherhood is often used as a rhetorical strategy in anti-violence movements, but motherhood is also used to justify violence as resistance. This panel invites submissions that consider the role of the mother as central to individual, local, national, and global activisms and resistance movements in literature, media portrayals, online communities, grassroot campaigns and more.

deadline for submissions:

NeMLA is turning 50! Please come and help us celebrate our Anniversary Convention at the Gaylord National in Washington DC, March 21–24, 2019.

The theme of our 2019 convention is "Transnational Spaces: Intersections of Cultures, Languages, and Peoples." It aims to challenge traditional notions of history, territory, and identity and to recognize the complex processes of trans-culturation that have characterized modernity.

As the capital of the United States, Washington, DC, plays an important role in shaping both national and global history. It is vital that NeMLA bring its convention to this seat of power in order to address the ongoing challenges we face in producing a world that values diversity, honesty, scholarship, and justice.
