Recent critical trends in media studies have emphasized various aspects of and approaches to the materiality of technology and media information, with methodologies including digital forensics, platform studies, and critical code studies offering both a deep interest in the close reading of technology and a jumping-off point towards multiple larger literary, cultural, and philosophical questions. This panel seeks to build upon and extend those methodologies by focusing in particular on metadata—data about data—as a category of inquiry. How does metadata relate to data in discursive, informational, and ontological terms? How and to what extent does metadata inform the materiality of technology?

[UPDATE] Redeeming Modernity: Economy, Religion, and Literature in Modern America. NeMLA (Abstact deadline 9/30/10)

The received wisdom tells us that the modernization of American culture and society was contingent upon its secularization. And yet, when we look to both canonical works of American modernism and to contributions to the "cultural front," we find an abiding concern for the religious that troubles this dominant narrative. This panel seeks to reexamine the multivalent modernist concern for the religious in order to reassess its place in early 20th century American literature and culture, to analyze the myth of the 'secular age,' and to determine the place of religion in the conflict between capital and labor.

To what extent can contemporary fiction by women and about women from different cultures can be brought together coherently for discussion?

This session will investigate how women's fictional plotting has changed with globalization and what that contributes to the comparability/incomparability of these works.

Women and Wilderness: Ecofeminism in Early American Literature

Sunday, August 29, 2010 - 2:11pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel invites papers which take an ecofeminist approach to American literature written by women in the 17th to mid-19th centuries, fiction and non-fiction. Consider texts that explore ways in which women interact with the natural world, and the consequences of such relationships. How do women in the texts (both writers and characters) portray relationships with the land? Are they aware of, complicit in or attempting to resist strategies of patriarchal domination which are also being applied to the environment? Please send 300-500 word abstracts to Ashley Bourne at abourne@reynolds.edu. Deadline Sept. 30th. Include in email: Name and affiliation, email address and AV requirements if any.
