Queer Ecocriticism and Literature: 41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), April 7-11, 201

NeMLA

In her 2008 article "Queering Ecocultural Studies," Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands appeals for "a critical practice of ecocultural analysis that challenges […] the ways in which natural and ecological relations have been read and organized to normalize and naturalize power." Queer ecology, at its core, challenges the binary of natural/unnatural, which has sought to diminish both queerness and the more-than-human world. This panel, in the spirit of promoting and continuing the discourse from the NEMLA 2009 Queer Ecocriticism and Theory panel, will examine the state of the academic field of queer ecocriticism and the modes of inquiry prompted by the blending of sexuality studies, queer theory, and ecocriticism.

The City as a Place of Exile

The session will examine texts that present the city, any city, as a space of exile. The text can be fiction, poetry, song, essay or letters and personal accounts of the encounters with a city – a place of exile. However, it has to reveal a city whose design is not limited to a mere geographical reference and whose function is not confined to a static setting.

[UPDATE]

Catherine Rainwater, Cristine Soliz, Anna Lee Walters

We are accepting submissions for a collection of stories, essays, and poems for a proposed book on comparative American spatial concepts, partially titled "Stories the Land Holds." The editors are looking for texts variously addressing "stories in the land," from origin stories, fiction, creative non-fiction, essays, etc. What are the stories the land tells? Vine Deloria has warned us of problems that result from a perspective that is not fundamentally spatial, and such has been the case for current problems that range from ecological disaster to fanatical environmentalism and bundled mortgages. We believe that these complex and problematic American events can be understood more fully from a Native American perspective.

Failure of individuation in Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing

Sima Aghazadeh

This article explores the process of individuation in the first novel by Doris Lessing, Grass is Singing. The novel through its circular narration from collective perspective of its protagonist's murder to individual account of her personal life and then again to the collective one, completes an indictment of its central character's life, Mary Turner, in the center of a closed white colonial society in southern Africa in which the linked discourses of class, race , and gender bring her into exclusion, isolation, break down, and finally to death, hindering self-acknowledgement and affirmation.
