Decolonizing the Digital Archive

 

In recent years we have witnessed a proliferation of digital archival work – often (but not always) in the form of open access platforms developed to gather, preserve, and share historical documents. The very nature of open accessibility counters a rhetoric of retreat and the construction of barriers among knowledge producers and consumers – by refusing ownership over its content and seeking collaborative and communal engagement in both interpretational and curatorial work, open access digital archives are often decentralized archives that  provide modes for democratic access, exchange, and co-construction of knowledge.

NeMLA 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020

Boston, Massachusetts

 

The collection Children’s Geographies explores children's places from playgrounds, social networks, schools, streets, villages, and so much more. Peter Hunt’s “Unstable Metaphors: Symbolic Spaces and Specific Places” differentiates between the internal/personal of the “space” and the external/reality of the “place.” Drawing on these ideas, this panel seeks to continue the discussion of children’s places and spaces by asking how children exist in the real world and the fictional world, in addition to how their literature serves (or doesn’t serve) as a distinct space of its own.  

Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 1:56pm
NeMLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. 

From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and image.

Narratives of Queer Space: An Inquisition in South Asian Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 11:53am
Northeast Modern Language Assoc
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel establishes the presence of and explores queer themes and narratives in South Asian literature. While the focus is on the last forty years, we will also include more historic approaches as well.

It is an often-accepted critical truism that South Asian Literature is devoid of its focus on narratives of queer resistance in its literature. Thus, the fight to highlight queer themes within larger heterosexual texts is more important than ever. South Asia with its rich and diverse literary background was never short of themes on queer genre but the practice was so normative at the same time so tabooed that it rarely found its way in literature.

deadline for submissions:

This panel investigates the concept of landscape in American literature.  For Americans, the landscape brings strong associations, whether cultural, political, historical, or commercial.  The landscape, in a sense, is central to the American identity. This session seeks proposals on the meaning of landscape in American literature.  How do Americans use landscape to create identity?  In what ways are landscapes used politically or culturally to create meaning?  This session encourages interdisciplinary approaches to the landscape in American literature, including the examination of literature and the visual arts.
