New Media, New Narrative: Technological Effects on Student Writing Roundtable

Because our students are so immersed in electronic communication, their sensibilities about writing have undergone radical changes. The new narrative they are creating is a very public, shared experience. This roundtable seeks to foster discussion on how composition instruction can capitalize on the collaboration, resource sharing, and creativity that is redefining the act of composing in the 21st century. Please submit inquiries or 250 word proposals along with a brief biographical description in English to Kim.Ballerini@NCC.Edu. Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2009.

This panel will examine the appearance of "apparitional lesbians" in various works of fiction in order to question whether the apparitional, the unseen, and the invisible can be rendered visible, and how such a new visibility readjusts our understanding of those works. The panel will also consider papers on newer lesbian texts that employ the ghostly or empower it explicitly. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words.

Anthology Theorizing Post-9/11 Music

In current debates about the War in Iraq, it has become commonplace for politicians and journalists to conjure the specter of the Vietnam War as a means of quantifying the impact of the current war in American culture and throughout the world. Surprisingly, though, few have scrutinized these comparisons to examine the differences between the popular music of the Vietnam era and the music of the current post-9/11 era. While the Vietnam era found countless bands and musicians responding in protest to that war, there has arguably been a significantly smaller amount of contemporary musicians who have taken overt stances, in their music, about the politics of post-9/11 life, in America and elsewhere.

My colleague Dr. Deborah Poe and I are seeking articles for an edited collection tentatively titled "Between Worlds." The project is most invested in work which offers social and material opposition to binary ways of thinking about identity and difference. The collection will blend creative prose and criticism like Claudia Rankine's and Juliana Spahr's American Women Poets in the 21st Century: Where Lyric Meets Language did with the genre of poetry.

We continue to seek critical essays on the above issues and themes in the short fiction or novels of the following authors:

Call for Papers

Walter Benjamin and Memory

This panel invites papers that consider the theory of memory as it emerges in and through the work of Walter Benjamin. It hopes to bring together those interested in exploring the complex figuration of forgetting to be found in his thought. Contributions might confine their attention to Benjamin´s corpus, or stage comparative enquires into such areas as holocaust memory, trauma, or nostalgia. Papers that consider the commemoration of Benjamin´s life – in novels, films, at the memorial site in Portbou – are also welcome. Please send proposals to Wayne Stables at stablesw@tcd.ie

"Methodological Challenges of Medieval Literatures in Contemporary Literary History".

This is a workshop for the XIXth Congress of the International Comparative Literature Association (August 15-21, 2010. Seoul, Korea).

The aim of the workshop is to reflect on the methodological challenges medieval literatures pose to comparative literary history. As non-national cultural formations, medieval literatures ask specific questions about the historiographical activity that, however, have been either overlooked or dealt with according to the national paradigm.
