Maryse Condé’s œuvre has tremendously impacted our understanding of the French Caribbean and Africa, but also of postcolonial France and the Americas as a whole. In a sense, she is truly « a writer for our times, » as the title of a recent tribute in Paris suggested.

Women's Progress in African Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

From an early stage, the modern African novel has recognized the unjust challenges faced by African women. Even novels of the 1950's, such as Cyprian Ekwensi's People of the City (1954), bear witness to the difficulties that women face in transcending traditional norms as well as modern forms of objectification and exploitation. Even though these novels gesture to the need for better physical and societal realities for women, we may not find in the early novels a plan or vision of what exactly is needed for women to surmount various cultural hurdles and to fully actualize their potential in the modern realm.

"Abortion, Single Motherhood, and Adoption Schemes in Magdalene Literature"

The panel "Abortion, Single Motherhood, and Adoption Schemes in Magdalene Literature" will take place at the 56th Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) organised from March 6 to March 9 in Philadelphia, PA. 

Magdalenism is a structure which was implemented from the mid-seventeenth century to the end of the twentieth century in about 60 European and Europeanised countries around the world. Its objective was to control and fashion femininity, women’s social behaviours, and their sexuality. At a time when abortion was illegal in most countries, Magdalene Laundries and Mother and Baby “Homes” were often seen as a “solution” for unmarried pregnant girls and women.

Perspectives on Opera and the Operatic

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:57pm
Harry Rose/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

In the four hundred years since its invention in Renaissance Florence, opera has become synonymous with the grandiose, the excessive, and the melodramatic, yet it has only gained a foothold in the academy as an object of serious academic study within the past fifty years. Since then, however, an abundance of scholarship has yielded everything from formal musicological readings of operatic works to theoretical inquiries inspired by psychoanalysis into voice and performance. And topics like the relationship between opera and sovereignty in seventeenth century Italy and the appropriation of Wagner by the Third Reich underscore how opera has never been far from the political sphere in the Western world.

Creatures of Habit: the Animal in Latin American Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:56pm
NeMLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

From Aura’s surreal rabbit to rather unsettling Birds in the Mouth, animals have surfaced as important figures throughout Latin American literature, serving as powerful symbols, metaphors, and subjects of moral consideration. They have been depicted as divine beings, companions, victims, and agents of resistance, often challenging anthropocentric worldviews and inviting us to reconsider our place in the more-than-human world. This panel aims to explore the aesthetic, ethical, and political dimensions of animal representations in Latin American thought and culture.

 

We invite papers that engage with the philosophical and literary treatment of animals in Latin America. Topics may include:

Abjection and the Joy of Movement in African Francophone Female Writings

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 3:56pm
Diweng Mercy Dafong/ University of Alabama (NeMLA 2025)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

As today we see Western countries enacting various immigration laws and borders are being mined to prevent “intruders” from accessing those countries. Faced with (in)security in sub-Saharan Africa the African woman has become that monster of abjection residing in that marginal geography, dwelling in the gates of difference in unfamiliar spaces. The African woman faced with (im)migration goes through a strong feeling of revulsion, fear, or aversion, she is treated as something that is a threat to one's boundaries and undermines one's sense of identity and security, exemplifying Kristeva’s idea of abjection.

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?
