Afterlives of Historical Violence in American Literature and Activism

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 4:43pm
SAMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 10, 2018

Per William Faulkner’s famous phrase, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” This is to say that the forms of social inequality that characterize contemporary life and drive contemporary activism are rooted in long histories of violence. Yet over time, as these histories extend not only throughout individual lives but also across generations, they can become so naturalized that they run the risk of being functionally invisible.

SAMLA 90 - AIDS in French and Francophone Narratives / Le SIDA dans les narrations françaises et francophones

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 11:15am
Olivier Le Blond
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

The AIDS crisis in France and Francophone countries has seen the emergence of a “littérature SIDA,” as well as artistic expressions through various media such as photography or films. On August 23rd 2017, the movie 120 battements par minute (BPM), shed a light on the first years of activism of Act Up-Paris in the early 1990s.  In April 2018, France Culture’s radio show LSD, La série documentaire, dedicated four days to the topic “Quand la création raconte le SIDA.” Despite the medical advances, both the movie and radio show reminded viewers and listeners of a duty to remember the AIDS crisis. This panel will focus on the representations of AIDS and the accompanying activism in literature, cinema and arts from French and Francophone artists.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference CFP, "Playing Our Part: Social Hierarchy and the Performance of Class in Literature"

Friday, May 11, 2018 - 6:24pm
John D. Schwetman / University of Minnesota Duluth
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

While historically a product of birthright, and more recently associated with merit, social class has always presented itself as a set of expectations setting the stage for encounters between unfamiliar people. Whether sincerely or in masquerade, everyone adopts a social class as a role to be played before an audience. In line with this year’s conference theme “Acting, Roles, and Stages,” this panel, examines social class as performance and focuses on literary works across genres and eras that present class accordingly. From estates satire to the minstrel show, from social realism to the theater of the absurd, we will consider ways that literature either enacts the performance of class or dramatizes its enactment.
