Is World Literature the new, upgraded version of Comparative Literature (Comp Lit 2.0) or rather an attenuated, impoverished version of the latter? What unites us, and what divides us, especially considering that many World Lit faculty are drawn from Comp Lit backgrounds? How do we, practitioners in these fields, rethink these disciplines for the era when humanities as such are under constant attack? In this session, we hope to discuss our shared ground and our shared challenges. This roundtable is organized by the NeMLA World Literature Working Group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of World Literature.
The Literature and Madness section of the Popular Culture Association is soliciting 15-20 minute papers for the upcoming year’s annual PCA/ACA conference in Washington, D.C, scheduled for 17-20 April 2019. The deadline for abstract submission is 1 October 2018.

Of late, there is a decided increase in the attention toward women’s contributions to culture and media, both in the popular press and academic literature. Numerous writers have documented historical achievements, contemporary struggles, everyday lived experiences, and cultural and societal triumphs of women’s experiences, particularly in screen media.
For this approved panel at the spring 2019 Northeast Modern Language Association conference, March 21-24, 2019 in Washington, DC, please submit abstracts by September 30: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/17265. I will respond between October 1 and October 15.
This session will explore the rationale of Post-postcolonial revisionism introduced by the US as global colonizer from Post-postcolonial Pakistani Literature while focusing on the post 9/11 social misrepresentations. There are four aspects which highlight the theme of the session (US as Global Colonizer): 1) US hegemony in the form of Revisionism, through social misrepresentations and exploitation 2) The recursivity of nuclear power and American domination that alludes to the evolving “great game” in Afghanistan 3) Welfare of Imperialism: American influence on Paksitan’s internal policies and minority rights in Pakistan, and 4) The relationship between US (neocolonizer) and Pakistan (colonized) in the aftermath of 9/11.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is among the most prominent and admired young writers of African Europhone fiction. As a Nigerian and Igbo author, she has been linked with one of her renowned predecessors, Chinua Achebe. Indeed Achebe himself paid tribute to Adichie's talent, observing that "Adichie came almost fully made." Clearly one of the influences that shaped that talent has been Achebe's own fiction. Adichie's novels and shorter fiction allude to and draw on elements of Achebe's work, and this panel will explore dimensions of storytelling, history, politics, gender, and culture that create a complex and rich dialogue between the two authors.
