Nancy Caronia MLA LLC Italian American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

In conjunction with the MLA theme: #States of Insecurity, this panel seeks contributions that complicate notions of assimilation and the assimilated Italian American. How has Italian American radicalization been minimized, erased, or marginalized in favor of the assimilation tale of struggle, hard work, and success? How have Italian radical migrants’ stories been homogenized by the mythic and legal processes of assimilation, including the Alien Registration Act? How have other ethnic and racial minorities used the example of Italian American assimilation to create their assimilation stories? Seeking contributions especially in gender studies, race and ethnic studies, urban studies, working class studies, and digital humanities.

GFF 2017: Realities and World Building

University of Vienna, September 20th-23rd 2017

 

     The creation and experience of “new” worlds is a central appeal of the fantastic. From Middle Earth to variations of the Final Frontier, the fantastic provides a seemingly infinite number of fantastic “worlds” and world concepts. It develops and varies social and cultural systems, ideologies, biological and climatic conditions, cosmologies and different time periods. Its potential and self-conception between the possible and the impossible offer perspectives to nearly every field of research.
