Female Absence and the Expression of Black Masculinity in African-American Literature (April 7-11, 2010;due 9/30/09)

Expressions of black masculinity in African American literature have evolved significantly over the centuries. For instance, nineteenth-century male-authored slave narratives, such as Frederick Douglass's 1845 Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, champions not only physiological strength against one's oppressor as a marker of black male subjectivity, but also the attainment of education that would inevitably clear the path to independence, political leadership, and American citizenry. Twentieth-century African American authors have expanded our considerations of black masculine agency. In Native Son, Richard Wright explores black masculinity in its performative and sexual contexts.

Lynne Bruckner

Looking for submissions for a collection of essays on teaching early Modern literature, and Shakespeare in particular, from an ecocritical perspective.

The volume encourages essays that show how teaching early modern texts ecocritically can be a matter of engaging in political struggle on behalf of the environment. Presentist approaches and essays that look at Shakespeare in different historical moments (including contemporary performances/films) are particularly welcome. Those who are ecocritics who happen to teach Shakespeare or other early modern texts, in addition to those who would describe themselves as Shakespeare or early modern scholars, are equally welcome to submit.

Mapping the Moral Domain in Alice McDermott's Novels (NeMLA April 7 - 11, 2010; due 9/30/09)

Gail Shanley Corso/Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Annual Conference, Montreal

In Alice McDermott's novels, often teenage girls show disenchantment with their mothers' values and beliefs, and society in general. Carol Gilligan et al. in MAPPING THE MORAL DOMAIN explains that young girls "may see from different angles" as they develop into adolescence. McDermott portrays female characters in conflict over moral choices-- a morality of justice or a morality of caring. Gilligan claims in her analysis of the moral domain for girls, greater questions and concerns might emerge "about the society and culture in which [adolescents] are coming of age" (xxxv). Send 300 - 500 word abstract to Gail Shanley Corso at gcorso@neumann.edu by 9/30/09.

"Our Monsters, Ourselves"

This panel seeks papers on the historical significance and meaning of the monsters everywhere in our cultural moment. Following the line of thought that a society's supernatural monsters in many ways define them, "Our Monsters, Ourselves" hopes to open the discussion of the ways monsters in recent fiction and film represent the tacit panics, problems and pleasures of English-language, North American culture in 2010. Monsters are defined, for this panel, as those creatures presented as explicitly and literally "supernatural" or "artificial" by their authors.

A short list of dramatis personae might include vampires, ware-wolves, robots, ghosts, AI figures, witches and demons.
