Drugs and spices have long been at the center of global trade, but the concept of “drug” in its modern, Western sense is particularly derived from interactions with cultural “others.”  Thinkers such as Jacques Derrida have written on the ancient Pharmakon and its relationship to signification and sacrifice.

History, Identity and Emotions in Italian Literature

updated: 
Monday, July 2, 2018 - 9:39am
NeMLA 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

In the last decades, the general perception that emotions are opposed to history and that politics is unemotional has been challenged by a number of scholars in various disciplines: Sara Ahmed’s, for example, has argued that emotions ‘stick’ to objects in a social context, while others consider affect as a fundamental aspect of citizenship (among them, Graziella Parati). This panel seeks to continue a conversation started at NeMLA 2018 about the role and representation of emotions and affect in Italian history and literature. We will accept proposals that analyze the intersectionality between history, identity and emotions from early modern to contemporary Italian literary texts.
