Panel Description:

CFP NeMLA Pittsburgh April 2018: Hispanismo y humorismo

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:19pm
North East Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This proposed panel is concerned with satirical responses to corruption, injustice, disenfranchisement and economic crisis from across Hispanic cultural production. Papers may analyze dark comedy in film, comics and cartoons, narrative, theater, visual arts, social media, and so on from Spain, Latin America, and Latinx America and from any time period. The aim of this proposed panel is to explore the tragicomic sensibility in Hispanic cultural production with a focus on social critique and, where possible, to trace genealogies and compare/contrast satirical representations across the Spanish-speaking world. We ask: How do our proposed texts relate to the terms: dark comedy, grotesque, esperpento, farce, tragicomedy, humorism, wit?

Disruptive Clothes

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:24pm
Nicole Paronzini / 2018 NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel seeks papers that address the disruptive role of clothes along with the possibility they provide the individual or a group to challenge a super-imposed set of rules and to create discontinuity within their community. 

The purpose of this panel is to shed light on the many functions of clothes in literature and cinema but not only, and on how clothing and garments can become symbols of individual power and redemption. Throughout what they choose to wear or not to wear, men and women send a clear message against the passive acceptance of injustices and prevarications. Moreover, clothes may represent the ability for the subject to denounce the establishment and to assert their freedom and individuality. 

CORRECTION!!EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 5th) for SAMLA panel—The Avant-Garde and Modern Visual Culture: At the Crossroads of High and Low Art

updated: 
Friday, June 2, 2017 - 11:24am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2017

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges. Immaterialities such as images are thus transformed into commodities that blend high and low aesthetic genres that participate in the consumer society.

CORRECTION!! LAST DAYS TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS (June 5th)—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

updated: 
Friday, June 2, 2017 - 11:37am
American Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.

REMINDER: Modernism's World Languages

Saturday, July 29, 2017 - 7:45am
NeMLA 2018: Pittsburgh, PA (April 12-15)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).

Join us at the Central APA in Chicago in February 2018 for a unique opportunity!  For the first time, the Karl Jaspers Society of North Amercia and Gabriel Marcel Society are meeting together to view contemporary issues through the lenses of Jaspers and Marcel.  The content of the joint session is broadly construed, but with an eye toward contributions that draw from, or are indebted to, the work of Karl Jaspers and Gabriel Marcel. Differences and similarities of these two thinkers will be discussed in view of existentialism and politics. Contributions that integrate current political realities are especially encouraged, as are those that draw from distinct academic methodologies.

Friday, September 29, 2017

This panel will explore the complex and evolving relationships between tradition, transgression, and dialogue in South Asian Culture. Because of the complexity of these issues, we are not insisting on a specific time-frame. While the accent will be on contemporary life, participants may want to focus on the past, near or distant.

NeMLA Panel_"Culture, Imperialism, Capital: Said and Marx against the Grain"

Saturday, September 30, 2017

In 1993, Edward Said published—to great acclaim and critical discussion—what would come to be considered a signal achievement: Culture and Imperialism. Twenty-five years onward, Said’s text remains central to literary work from postcolonial studies to the Victorian novel, the New Historicism to World literature. Its endurance, it would seem, lay in its breadth: the magnitude of Said’s intervention, its power of synthesis, its inventive critical modes.
