Natural Spaces and Managed Wilderness: Mediation in National and State Parks

Panel Session, NeMLA’s 54th Annual Convention in Niagara Falls, March 23-26

 

State and national parks alike often function with the purpose of stewardship over the environment and historical spaces across the country, but their design often may provide instruction on how to read the space. Though the National Park Services states that their conservation of these spaces leaves natural resources “unimpaired,” parks are places which are highly mediated in service of their use to visitors in those spaces; likewise, parks are subject to rhetorics of space and their construction may contain explicit or implicit messaging about how people are supposed to engage with the world around them.

We seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalizes” students’ engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations on the teaching of subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric world view.

From ancient Greek τραύμα (meaning “wound, damage”), the term trauma refers to a physical or psychological injury provoked by a violent event, and the very event causing this great distress. Traumatic events abound in early modern France, whether be caused by natural catastrophes (floods, storms, fires, harsh winter, plagues) or by human activity (warfare, sexual violence, religious persecution).

Latin American borderlands: new perspectives on history and culture

updated: 
Wednesday, July 27, 2022 - 7:05pm
Missouri State
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Latin American frontiers have been approached from multiple perspectives but the canonical all-encompassing studies, Hennessy’s The Frontier in Latin American History and David Weber’s and Jane Rausch’s edited collection on the same topic, were published decades ago. They could and should be reviewed in light of new developments, both in academia and in the real world (or say politics, culture and the economy). This collective effort will offer a fresh take on Latin American frontiers, understood mainly but not only historically and in the sense of undetermined borderlands, be it between nation-states or within the political boundaries of a single nation-state.

Universities increasingly recognize the value of connecting students to local communities to promote concepts of care: volunteerism, problem-solving, stewardship. What role does literature play in place-based community engagement? How does reading or writing ‘literatures of place’ (regional or environmental literature, travel or nature writing, ecopoetry) connect students to a place and contribute to place-based solutions?

Together, these institutions form a global network coordinated by actors such as the Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut. This network plays a key role both in Germany’s foreign cultural policy and in supporting literature and the arts.

Call for Papers: The Language of Trees, Forests, and Nature

Deciduloma, Volume 1

Deadline: September 15th 

Sometimes rare moments and experiences require new words, so we created the word deciduloma to mean "a visceral reawakening, as if rising from an emotional coma in which you become reintroduced to a beautiful part of yourself long since forgotten or thought to have been permanently lost." 

There are many ways of experiencing this type of "visceral reawakening." One of those ways is through nature. For our inaugural issue, we welcome essays that engage with different aspects of nature through literature, film and television, and other forms of visual medium.

Cultural Representations of the Region in Transnational Contexts, c. 1840-1940

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Radboud University, Department of Modern Languages and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.

London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2022

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Reading Spatially: Summer School for PhD Researchers (Tampere, Finland, 20-22 June 2022)

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Tampere University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

This summer school, aimed at PhD researchers with a spatially oriented project in fields such as literary and cultural studies, film and visual culture studies, or cultural geography, asks what it means to read spatially – or to read for space – in practice. Recent decades have seen an explosion of spatially oriented approaches to the analysis of literary texts and other forms of cultural production. Ranging from literary geography and cultural cartography to geocriticism, geopoetics, material ecocriticism, and new forms of spatial phenomenology, these approaches offer exciting avenues for thinking about the many dimensions of real and imagined space.
