Racial passing has been a common theme in literature, especially in texts dealing with escaping to freedom during the antebellum period.  The Nadir period also witnessed a spike in racial passing and colorism themes as racial tensions heightened anti-black violence throughout the United States. This panel seeks papers that examine texts dealing with racial passing and colorism.  Questions for consideration might include:

The OGOM Project is known for its imaginative events and symposia, which have often been accompanied by a media frenzy. We were the first to invite vampires into the academy back in 2010. Our most recent endeavour, Company of Wolves: Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Feral Humans enjoyed extensive coverage globally and saw us congratulated in the THES for our ambitious 3 day programme which included actual wolves, ‘a first for a UK academy’.

Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:52pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?

Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 25, 2017

Unnatural and otherwise strange narrative devices tend to be associated with experimental fiction, yet they are often used in nonfiction, including (auto)biography, documentary film, journalism, history and science. A few examples: Claude Lanzmann’s documentary Shoah eschews chronological telling in order to repudiate notions of historical causality and inevitability; Richard Dawkins’ history of life on earth, The Ancestor’s Tale,uses similar manoeuvers, if for very different reasons.

Call for papers for a Panel at NeMLA 2018: "Bodies in transit. Exploring Borderlands in Hispanic Science Fiction World"

Saturday, September 30, 2017

In the last decades, acts of globalization –a product of the late capitalism in the so called first world– have spread simulacra of wealth and wellness everywhere. As a consequence, people from the peripheries embark on the diaspora to reach a better future, and need to overcome all kinds of struggles. Thus, frontiers, the cornerstone of geopolitics, play a crucial role in the control of migratory movements. In this state of affairs, there is a growing number of writers and artists who embrace the genre of science fiction to articulate experiences of displacement, marginalization or resistance, as well as to interrogate the very nature of borderlands.

REMINDER: New Approaches to Gothic Literature: Panel at 2018 ASECS Annual Meeting, March 22-25

As the bicentennial of the publication of the early Gothic’s masterpiece, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, 2018 is an ideal time to reconsider how we understand the aesthetic qualities, ideological underpinnings, historical development, and cultural work of Gothic literature. Derided as juvenile or worse through most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Gothic has enjoyed a resurgence in interest among scholars in recent decades—and of course, it has never lost the interest of popular audiences.
