You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas.  Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.

Transsexual Rhetorics: Self-determination in Late Capitalism

Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Sex (biology) and gender (culture) were teased apart and are currently being collapsed, an interesting rhetorical history in itself. Often under-explored out of concern for the rights of transsexual/transgendered people, these shifts in logic and rhetoric potentially reveal new relationships between biology and culture, oppression and late capitalism, and vulnerability and privilege. The relationships potentially reveal cultural assumptions and expose the forces of normalization.

In Strange Natures: Futurity, Empathy, and the Queer Ecological Imagination (2013), Nicole Seymour writes, “In the past few years, queer ecology has emerged as a burgeoning area of interdisciplinary study,” (21) which traces and builds upon a host of “empathetic, ethical interrelationships between the queer and the non-human” (23). In a similar vein, Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands and Bruce Erickson state in “A Genealogy of Queer Ecologies” that “the task of a queer ecology is to probe the intersections of sex and nature with an eye to developing a sexual politics that more clearly includes considerations of the natural world and its biosocial constitution” (161).

Post-theory, Post-craft

In Spatele Blocului
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021

What remains in the aftermath the overarching deconstruction theory for the fields of literary criticism and literary practice? Did the humanities find their vocation in the field of (meta)-theory and did literary practice abandon its traditional craft for good? Or does the advent of theory spell out a crisis of the humanities, and the "literature of replenishment" has been replaced by the "literature of exhaustion" (John Barth)? These are some of the questions we will try to address in the third issue of the Romanian online magazine In Spatele Blocului (www.inspateleblocului.ro), together with discerning new ways of configuring the craft of literary practice in general.
