Tome and Principe) from literary to cultural studies, including gender, historical, visual, economic, religious, and educational studies are particularly welcomed. The panel also welcomes transnational perspectives and utopian propositions that examine the Portuguese-speaking world and diaspora.

Thursday, June 9, 2016

As queer theory continues to evolve and utopian studies dusts itself off from its relative dormancy until the late twentieth century, the two strands of thought have grabbed ahold of one another in hopes to uncover just what “The Future” might mean to those identifying as queer. This panel seeks papers wishing to join the vibrant conversation of the relationship between queerness and utopianism.  Is queerness inherently utopic? Is the future inherently queer? How might queer individuals enact utopic desires? Can we find moments of the queerly utopic and utopicly queer in canonical and non-canonical literature?

Though neither Mr. Thornton nor Mr. Bell evoke “Utopia” flatteringly in Elizabeth Gaskell’s North & South, each mention of the term situates the concept of utopianism at the center of the novel’s labour dispute and makes the reader wonder if Margaret Hale might not be a utopian heroine. Not considered a utopic text, North & South nevertheless engages itself in a conversation about utopianism (and dystopianism). This panel seeks papers re-reading non-utopic texts (or authors) from the nineteenth century as utopic. By June 9th, please submit a 200-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dan Abitz, Georgia State University, dabitz1@gsu.edu.

[DEADLINE EXTENDED] Realisms in American Detective Fiction

updated: 
Sunday, October 2, 2016 - 7:22pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel invites papers that question and expand the critical discussion on the issue of realism in American detective fiction. Where does detective fiction fit within the tradition of American realism? To what extent does the detective story endorse, critique, or push back against the latter genre’s perceived conservatism? In what ways do realist detective fiction adhere to, or differ from, other genre fiction’s attempts at authenticity? How does the genre codify authenticity and how does the codification change historically? We seek presentations that touch on questions such as these as well as others that uncover novel aspects of realism in American detective fiction.

            We invite proposals for a collection of essays that will bring together different perspectives on the history gambling in the United States. Gambling represents a major economic and cultural phenomenon in modern America. According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 70% of Americans engage in some form of wagering, amounting to a handle of over $130 billion per year. Gambling remains a hotly discussed topic as well, as exemplified in debates over the legality of daily fantasy sports, the continued expansion of casinos across the nation, and the frenzy over the record Powerball jackpot in January 2016.
