Acting Age in the Long Eighteenth Century

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - 3:46pm
NEMLA 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Recent work in performance studies have trenchantly analyzed constructs of identity, gender, and race in the Long Eighteenth Century. In Rival Queens, for example, Felicity Nussbaum explores how actresses of the eighteenth century embodied and challenged femininity through their roles on and off the stage, roles that blended together in the mind of a public audience. But enlightening performance studies such as Nussbaum's do not often, however, account for age. Age cuts across gender, race, and class.

Intersecting Global Modernism and World Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - 3:46pm
ACLA 2017: Utrecht University, July 6-9
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

The recent global turn in modernist studies prompts timely questions about the intersections between global modernism and world literature, and the role that global modernism plays within the study of world and comparative literature. In their article “The New Modernist Studies,” Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz argued for an “expanded” vision of modernism that reconsiders canonical figures and texts, contests canonicity’s traditional limits, and redefines temporal and geographical coordinates beyond Anglophone traditions and Eurocentric frameworks.

Bring Out Your Undead: Undead South/Undead Nation

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - 3:46pm
Southern American Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 10, 2016

This proposed session for SASA 2017 pushes and pulls beyond traditional notions of the “gothic,” horror, and hauntings, instead engaging with more expansive ideas enabled by recent theorizations of undeadness. Special attention will be given to proposals that link forms of undeadness associated in some way with the American South to formulations in or across other regions and nations. What is "undead nation," and how might we understand it in relation to undead Souths? How does undeadness migrate and circulate across regional and national frames and at the same time backlight gender, sexuality, race, settler colonialism, and more?
