Conversion Narrative Redux: Health, Wealth, Travel, and Contemporary Bestselling Life Writing (NeMLA 2014)

Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 10:15am
NeMLA 2014

This panel seeks to interrogate the connections between physical and mental health, material wealth, spirituality, and the bestselling conversion memoir of the twenty-first century. Conversion narrative itself is as old as the United States; in recent years, however, it has experienced a resurgence in its publication and readership. Are the "new" conversion narratives, such as Elizabeth Gilbert's 2006 *Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia*, Mary Karr's 2009 *LIT*, or even Cheryl Strayed's 2012 *Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail* really about the authors' spiritual experiences, or does something else lurk beneath the surface? Are they about being healthy, in any sense of the word?

A new e-journal: Imaginary Relations

Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 8:54am
Imaginary Relations

Announcing a new journal: Imaginary Relations

Imaginary Relations is a new e-journal dedicated to ideological critique and analysis of single aesthetic objects: poetry, fiction, drama, film and television. The journal seeks to examine the competing meanings that ideologies generate; how ideologies are produced and reproduced in single cultural productions; how ideologies function to produce material practices, such as reading, and how those reading practices can work to reproduce and transform ideologies. The journal, therefore, focuses on the complex valences of ideology as positive and productive forces in culture that do, and can, transform subjectivities and social relations.

The Canon and Cultural Studies in the Composition Classroom - NeMLA, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 10:21pm
45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 3-6, 2014 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Host: Susquehanna University

Since the "culture wars" of the 1980s and 90s, the significance of canonical authors towards a general education has been argued by both the left and right. As the debris from those arguments has settled it's clear that the canon has remained central to humanistic education, but in what way? While conservatives may have feared the dissolution of the traditional canon and liberals pushed the need for greater inclusiveness, it's obvious that détente in the culture wars has resulted in perhaps a different educational status quo entirely.

Ellen Dolgin -NeMLA

45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Host: Susquehanna University

Joan's legacy has engendered admiration and/or consternation. This seminar will focus on the medieval contexts surrounding her rise and fall: from political to mystical to. Papers may examine Joan in her own time. Or, emphasis can be on Joan's iconographic social status after her "lost" trial transcripts re-emerged in the 19th century. Biographies, cultural studies, and literary texts that appeared are especially suitable. Please send 250 word abstracts by SEPTEMBER 30 to ellen.dolgin@dc.edu
