CFP: Reshaping the Italian American identity--DEADLINE Sept.1st 2010

updated: 
Thursday, July 15, 2010 - 8:22am
Italian American studies panel / NeMLA 2011

This interdisciplinary panel seeks for papers focusing on the question of identity in the Italian American experience from different perspective. Research in the fields of history, ethnography, literature, sociology and anthropology over the past decades have demonstrated how the building process of an identity remains an open quandary in particular regarding the Italian American experience. The mediatic imagery of the last years (mis)portraying the Italian American adults as "Sopranos" or the youth culture as a world of "Guidos" and "Guidettes" (e.g. Jersey Shore) witness the complexity of a shaped Italian American identity undergoing a process of adaptation.

Kingston University London

In the last three decades the field of media studies has witnessed an exponential growth of publications and research on globalization, alongside critical examinations of the "national" in terms of media systems, content and reception. Even more recently, there has been an increasing critical interest in the ways in which global processes, and especially the global circulation of media texts, can encourage a cosmopolitanist outlook or identity for citizens across the world.

Call for Submissions
(Submission Deadline: September 15, 2010)

"The Other: Between Delight and Aversion"

The importance of the Other in the unfolding of consciousness is crucial. As socialcreatures, the Other plays an omnipresent role in our development. The Other can be any entity placed in contrast or comparison to oneself: person, community, nation or race. According to Hegel, resolutioninvolves a dialectical process in which the Self attempts to reconcile the separation between the itself and the Other. Nothing angers, enchants or provokes us like the Other.

WINNOWING CHAFF: Constructing Morals and Contesting Universals in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales [deadline: September 1st]

updated: 
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 3:56pm
46th International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 12-15, 2011)

Considering The Canterbury Tales exclusively, this panel seeks to investigate Chaucer's engagement with the epistemological and ontological debate over universals. The works of Geoffrey Chaucer are heavily influenced by Platonic, Aristotelian, and Boethian philosophies; these philosophical authorities inform Chaucer's poetic meaning. Because The Canterbury Tales is situated in the midst of long-evolving and newly emerging philosophical debates, such as the dispute between Realists and Nominalists, any morality extracted from the tales must be understood in accordance with the (textual) construction of meaning.

GENDERED SPACES IN MEDIEVAL ENGLAND -- May 12-15, 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 1:38pm
46th International Congress on Medieval Studies - Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI-- sponsored by the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship

Women's (and men's) relation to the world is literally a reciprocity between body and space. Space and place largely controlled gender and social order in medieval through early modern England (and beyond). In turn, gender exercised considerable influence on the use and organization of space. "Status and gender were displayed physically and spatially every moment of the day, from a person's place at table to the bed on which he or she slept," from the boudoir to breweries, from convents to the alehouse, the garden to birthing ceremonies, even one's place at the offertory of the mass.

New Approaches to Early Modern Historical Drama at NEMLA (April 7-10, 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 - 9:11am
Miles Taylor, Le Moyne College

2011 NEMLA Convention in New Brunswick, NJ, April 7-10, 2011. The history play has resisted attempts at definition. How are early modern history plays in conversation with historiography? Is re-telling English history substantively different from re-telling Roman history or continental history? Why was the genre so popular, and what triggered its decline? Who is represented in historical dramas, and who constitutes the "obscene" (offstage) persons of history? How do we reconcile a "Chronicle History of King Lear" with a "Tragedy of Richard II"? Is there something unique to historical drama that separates it from the popular historical poetry or fiction of the period?
