The Settings of Margaret Atwood

updated: 
Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 9:33am
Louisa MacKay Demerjian
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Margaret Atwood is a world-renowned Canadian writer. Her identity as a Canadian is important to her and is reflected in her work, especially her earlier work. However, she is a well-travelled person as well and her works don't all take place in Canada. Over the years, she has set her work in urban, suburban and rural locations around Canada but also in the Caribbean and, in The Handmaid's Tale, in the Boston area. This panel would look at Atwood's various settings. How does she use place to reflect or cause either the comfort or the alienation of her characters? Why did she choose to set her first dystopian novel in Cambridge rather than in her home city of Toronto?

"Tales from the Grand Trunk Road" Panel

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2019 - 1:45pm
51st Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Convention/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

The oldest highway in Southern Asia was named the Grand Trunk Road by the British in the 17thcentury. During the nineteenth century the route carried not just goods for trade, but also British travelers whose numbers increased on the subcontinent as the century progressed. While the Grand Trunk Road was mentioned in Rudyard Kipling’s novel, Kim, many travelers may not have specifically mentioned it in their accounts, but their journeys would have inevitably taken them through such recognizable places on the route like, Calcutta, Delhi, Lahore, and Kabul.

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:15am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Print forms of poetry have traditionally been integral to writing and literature classes. However, for many students, especially those in first- or even second-year classes, the written word and the visual layout of poetic form can be foreign, even intimidating. This session will consider the possibilities offered by oral forms such as storytelling and spoken-word poetry. In addition to considering the pedagogical possibilities of oral performance, this session invites poets and storytellers to share their own original work.

Landscapes of Politics and Identity in American Literature

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 10:13am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel investigates the concept of landscape in American literature.  For Americans, the landscape brings strong associations, whether cultural, political, historical, or commercial.  The landscape, in a sense, is central to the American identity. This session seeks proposals on the meaning of landscape in American literature.  How do Americans use landscape to create identity?  In what ways are landscapes used politically or culturally to create meaning?  This session encourages interdisciplinary approaches to the landscape in American literature, including the examination of literature and the visual arts.

updated: 
Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 1:18pm

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

The travel and literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey and mobility through a literary lens, with a special interest in 20th- 21st century travel writing.

We are particularly interested in papers that take into consideration travel writing by authors better known for other forms of writing (novelists, poets, philosophers, essayists) and for whom travel, and travel writing, serve as a means to veer from their habitual modes of writing and allow them to experiment with another form (Baudrillard’s Cool memories, Barthes’ Empire of signs, Leiris’ Phantom Africa are examples of travel narratives of interest).

Topics may include:

Adaptation: In Service of Cinema or Novel?

updated: 
Saturday, April 27, 2019 - 1:37am
Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies (LLIDS)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Collaborations of cinema with other art forms open up myriad of issues like the medium’s ability to maintain fidelity to the original narrative, its transformation of the original narrative, or its desire to treat the original as only an occasion for a different narrative. Adaptation studies have, as yet, largely concentrated on studying films as derivatives of original works reinforcing Rabindranath Tagore’s observation that “[c]inema is still playing second fiddle to literature.” It is commonly viewed as a presumptuous palimpsest whose merit lies in its techniques of appropriation, intersection, and transformation of the source text.

In keeping with the annual theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers,” this panel seeks to explore the relationship between duality, broadly conceived, travel, and writing about travel. We seek to interrogate the ways in which travel writing serves as a discursive engagement with multiple dualities, including self and other, authority and subordination, as well as style and content. Submissions from any time period will be considered and papers that explore a broad spectrum of genres, disciplines, and geographic regions will be given special consideration. Papers that address any approach to the conference theme are welcome. Potential topics and themes include (but are not limited to):
