deadline for submissions:

How are Asian American and Pacific Islander bodies figured across different media—in contemporary novels, poetry, and visual arts? How do the transits and residues of US empire across the Pacific inform these representations? This panel investigates texts that center AAPI bodies and their varying materialities, wherein racialized bodies take on other-than-human forms (i.e., paper, digital, textual, watery, earthy, animal, etc.). The panel aims to explore how these embodiments are shaped by the residual and ongoing violences of US empire and/or war in the Pacific.

The Far North and the Global South in Popular Culture

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:54pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Despite the increased prominence of the Far North in the political and environmental crises of the twenty-first century, this space remains largely absent from Global South studies, an omission that unwittingly reproduces outdated notions of the Arctic as a kind of terra nullius, a region outside both the Global North and the Global South, devoid of people and history. As the effects of climate change continue to undermine perceptions of the Arctic as a region isolated from the modern world, this panel seeks to explore the relationship between the Far North and the Global South, as depicted in popular culture. How might concepts of the Global South prove generative in relation to the histories of the Far North?

Contemporary Cyberfeminisms (NeMLA 2025 Roundtable)

Monday, September 30, 2024

“Rooted as it is by feminism, cyberfeminism is an imperfect umbrella term,” Mindy Seu frames her archival project Cyberfeminism Index. Though it traces the same exclusions and western biases of feminist history, she writes, the Web 1.0 term “cyberfeminism” also provides a quick shorthand for the much broader expanse of art, activism, community, and scholarship of its many branches, including “Cyberfeminism 2.0, black cyberfeminism, xenofeminism, post-cyber feminism, glitch feminism, Afrofuturism, and hackfeministas, transhackfeminism, 넷페미 (netfemi), 女权之声 (feminist voices), among others" (https://cyberfeminismindex.com/about).

“Reader, I Met Him”: First Encounters in Fiction

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:54pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Near the end of Jane Eyre, the title character famously says, “Reader, I married him.” It is a wedding her readers have expected and waited for, yet it comes after a rather inauspicious first meeting.

Fiction is full of first meetings. While a relationship’s apex or culmination might often be most memorable to readers, the initial encounter is also of special interest and significance to the story. Papers for this panel will explore fictional (or nonfictional) first meetings or initial encounters. Presenters may discuss a first meeting in light of the dynamics of the relationship’s development and/or ending, or presenters may choose to do a close reading that does not take into account the relationship’s future.

In a 2023 article, the Black British writer Derek Owusu describes the transformative experience of reading D. H. Lawrence’s St Mawr (1925) as simultaneously an awakening to language and to a wider sense of connectedness. ‘I don’t have the words to describe what happened to me while turning the pages of that short story,’ he writes, ‘but I know language became something three-dimensional, and everything around me seemed connected by an unexpressed narrative.’

Work that arrives after the deadline will be considered for the next issue.

Bad Art (vol.2) SAMLA 96 - Jacksonville

updated: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024 - 11:01am
Ian Afflerbach / South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 25, 2024

After the encouraging success of last year’s panel, we want to continue our discussion on “bad art.” Scholarship on the politics of literature has, in recent decades, increasingly come to focus on whether texts from the past conform to the values of the present. Some texts are praised for modeling, even anticipating, our own progressive values, while others are subject to critique for the way they ignore, license, or justify forms of inequity, injustice, and subordination. This disciplinary impulse has come to seem not only justified, but natural. Yet it has also resulted in a growing corpus of books being dismissed or maligned within the academy (books that are often, and importantly, still being read and revered outside the academy).
