This table explores the different expressions of female hagiography whose main goal is to establish a map of the varied representations of female saints in different periods of Hispanic Literature.
In the twelfth century, Hildegard of Bingen uses the life of the Magdalene with the intention of creating her own model. This tradition is intensified among women in the Middle Ages with other European women such as Catherine of Siena or Margery Kempe among many others.

The Lehigh English Department's third annual Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference will take place at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, on March 10-11, 2017. This year’s conference theme is Borders and Violence. We invite diverse literary and pedagogical approaches to this theme, including papers that respond to the following questions: How do borders, whether physical, linguistic, economic, etc., signal or enact forms of violence? Conversely, how do borders function as sites of resistance? What forms can resistance to borders and/or violence take?  How does violence at sites of cultural difference affect communities and individuals? This violence might be physical, emotional, metaphorical, linguistic, cultural, judicial, etc.

This panel seeks to explore representations of mass atrocity, war, and civil strife in literature of French expression. There has been a wealth of cultural production around human-made catastrophes in global or neo/colonial contexts, wherein dire situations propelled and complicated by geographic or sectarian identities are recounted through an individual lens. Whether the author is speaking from the perspective of a witness or working through received memory, s/he must often contend with multiple conflicting interpretations proffered by various factions.

A reviewer of Claudia Rankine's Citizen writes, "One problem with writing poetry about political or historical issues is that poetry proves a terrible method for transmitting information."  This is an assertion we have encountered before.  Regarding Ezra Pound's Cantos, Donald Davie writes, "Whatever more long-term effect Pound's disastrous career may have on American and British poetry, it seems inevitable that it will rule out (has ruled out already, for serious writers) any idea that poetry can or should operate in the dimensio of history, trying to make sense of the recorded past by redressing our historical perspectives. . . .

Paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.

Avid comic book fans sat appalled in theatres as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel reached the climax of the film in which Superman kills his enemy Zod. Snyder’s film raises the question of whether this killing and the death of Zod could actually fit with Superman’s traditional moral compass. From Man of Steel to the CW’s Arrow and Flash series to the Avengers franchise, comic book characters are facing new ethical developments in their rejuvenation that both encompass and go beyond the idea of killing one’s enemy.
