Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:52pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association

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

International Society for the Study of Narrative, Montreal, QC, April 19-22, 2018
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"

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.

A century and a half after the abolition of slavery in the United States, the Underground Railroad, the formal and informal network of routes and people that helped fugitive slaves escape from the slaveholding South to freedom between the end of the 18th century and the Civil War, still draws considerable scholarly attention, whether it be through investigating its history or debating its many representations in public memory, literature and various art forms (Schulz, 2016). Considered “a model of democracy in action,” “the nation’s first great movement of civil disobedience since the American Revolution,” and “an epic of high drama” (Bordewich, 2005, p.

Aerial Assault: Drone Warfare, Precision Bombing, and Combatant Experience

updated: 
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:48pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

During the Persian Gulf War, the American military debuted smart-bombing that quickly eliminated Iraqi infrastructure. The Persian Gulf War was known as a “clean” war, as targets were efficiently acquired and destroyed. The War in Iraq further exemplified the American military prowess in aerial assault: Predator and Reaper drones acquired targets and enabled surveillance. Although weaponized drones are an efficient means of acquiring and destroying targets, we should contemplate how the American military conducts war in foreign countries, the ethical stakes, and how the combatant’s experience of war has transformed in the age of technology. An especially important facet of drone warfare to consider is the civilian impact.
