[Update] Contemporary Medievalisms, NeMLA, Toronto 4/30-5/3

Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 12:04pm
Emily Lauer

The proliferation of medievalism in popular culture - as Chaucer's Twitter account, Game of Thrones, and historical young adult novels set in Medieval Europe all attest - expresses varying ideas about what the Middle Ages could mean to our current historical moment. This panel seeks papers that explore contemporary ideas about the Middle Ages as they appear in a variety of popular culture venues. We especially welcome those that engage with global perspectives on the idea of the 'Middle Ages.'

2015 ACLA Seminar: Negotiating the Complementarity of Literature and Philosophy

Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 7:49am
American Comparative Literature Association

3/26-3/29: Seattle, WA

We hope to use the occasion of this two-day or three-day seminar to sketch a genealogy of appeals to the literary as complement to/completion of philosophy, particularly with the intention of thinking past antithetical confrontations of these terms. The investigation might initially be organized around two questions: what aspects of the philosophical become problematic from the perspective of the literary, and what specific features of the literary allow it to complement/expand/augment philosophy?

ACLA 2015 CFP: Europe and Its Other(3/26-3/29, Seattle, WA)

Although it was significantly eclipsed by the United States and the Soviet Union in the last century, Europe was once a name for total domination of the world, a name that not only commanded cultural and political authority but also was—and still is—tied up with memories of its violence and crime. Franz Fanon famously declared, "leave this Europe where they are never done talking of Man, yet murder men everywhere they find them, at the corner of every one of their own streets, in all the corners of the globe." On the other hand, however, there is a sense of incompleteness about this name.

NEMLA 2015: Urban Ecology and the Postcolonial Global Subject

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 1:36pm
Vivek Freitas, Tufts University

This panel considers the specific role of urban environments in imagining postcolonial subjects' relationship to the world. How and why do cities function as the locus for a cosmopolitan identity, while villages remain the bearers of tradition? How have discourses of globalization and environmental justice changed considerations of postcolonial subjectivity and environments in our century? What literary innovations have helped represent the sedimented historical landscapes of colonialism, global capitalism, and histories of devastation?
