Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 1:05pm
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?

Self-Translation Is Not Translation At All

Unlike the translator of someone else’s work, a self-translator does not translate: she “thinks” in both languages. Self-translation, then, may not be translation at all, but be merely the process of creating “the same” literary work in a different language. This roundtable invites writers, translators and scholars to examine examples of Self-Translation from high literature, popular culture, or ideally their own attempts, and discuss to what degree the “Self” is bound by the language(s) which it uses to express itself.

Conference Theme: "Global Spaces, Local Landscapes, and Imagined Worlds"

We invite contributions to an edited volume on comparative ecocritical studies of Latin American writing, film visual art, and performance that address the topic of ecological violence. How do writers, filmmakers, visual, performance artists, and practitioners of other forms of material culture conceptualize, visualize, and describe ecological vulnerability and insecurity? What are their strategies to convey the acts of violence on the environment that, as Rob Nixon explains in his definition of “slow violence”, are all too often invisible because they are “dispersed across time and space”? Which forms of expression are chosen, alongside and beyond conventional genres, to help apprehend ecological destruction and threats?

New Directions for Rhetorical Studies in Early Modern Literature

Monday, September 25, 2017 - 1:02pm

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Rhetoric and literature obviously have an intricate shared history in early modern studies evidenced by the likes of George Puttenham’s Art of English Poesie (1579) among other manuals and treatises, but studies continue to demonstrate that there is more to be examined at this scholarly intersection. By applying research in cognitive studies, for instance, Raphael Lyne offers a new perspective on Shakespeare’s use of rhetoric, and in a forthcoming piece Michael Ullyot and Adam Bradley employ digital technologies in order to study the applications of rhetorical tropes like gradatio in early modern drama more broadly. This panel seeks to discuss what other innovations or findings are possible with or without novel applications.
