ACLA 2022: The Place of Podcasts in the Humanities

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:42pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

 

Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies? 

NeMLA2022 Roundtable: Intertextual Wilde (Deadline Extended)

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

Migration, Belonging, and Afro-Europeanness: Current Articulations and Future Perspectives

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 4:26am
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel aims to explore how writers and filmmakers have articulated questions of Blackness and Europeanness, migration and cultural belonging, colonial histories and decolonial futures.

In recent decades, artists, scholars, and activists from all over Europe have interrogated and problematized wishful narratives about Europe as a democratic stronghold and a multicultural, borderless space. Working in different media, forms, and genres, these works address urgent questions, such as the racialization of migration, the persistent social and economic inequalities of urban spaces, and the legacies of repressed colonial histories.

Deadline Extended: NeMLA 2022 - Contemporary Poetry and Social Media

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 1:43pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable will convene literary and media scholars with poets themselves to explore the present and future of poetic cultures online, both in the U.S. and around the world. Our largest question can be simply put: to what extent have platforms for digital “prosumption” and online networking transformed the social life of contemporary poetry? We understand this inquiry to entail a diverse array of other, finer pointed questions: How does social media now condition the politics of contemporary poetry, where “politics” signifies both the institutional lifeforms of poetry’s production and circulation, and the ostensible public efficacy of poems themselves?

Ben Fried / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Where do we find important archives for the study of the Global Anglophone? How were their materials accumulated and how are they now arranged? What do these collections record, and what do they omit? Who can access them, particularly in this ongoing pandemic season?

This panel invites papers which explore the archives, personal or institutional, that enrich our understanding of literatures in English—and that provide material resources for research and teaching in the rising, disputed discipline of the Global Anglophone. Both established and lesser-known centers of archival study will make for welcome subjects. Papers may examine a whole institution, a particular collection, or even a single document.

Care, Community, and Identity in Queer Cinema - NeMLA 2022

updated: 
Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - 9:51am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.

Popular Culture Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

As music critic Rob Sheffield says in response to a recent Hulu documentary about Paul McCartney, “Fifty years after they said goodbye, the Beatles are bigger than ever — the toppermost of the poppermost, guaranteed to raise a smile.” Sheffield cites the release of the Disney Plus Get Back documentary, the fiftieth anniversary edition of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, and McCartney’s own recent albums McCartney III and McCartney III Imagined as testament to this fact. Perhaps even more true is the healing power of the music and the Beatles fandom during the pandemic years, where the Beatles have the same power to “raise a smile” as they did when performing on the Ed Sullivan Show just weeks after John F.
