Representations of Addiction in 19th-century Literatures

South Atlantic MLA / SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 1, 2020

The term “addiction” was not widely established in the 19th century. Even today, although amply attested in medical and legal dictionaries, it is not unambiguous: the label “addict” is highly stigmatizing, while “addiction” to yoga or organic sourdough is a status marker. Nineteenth-century writers nonetheless depicted recognizable states of dependency and loss of autonomy, which 21st-century readers find unmistakably familiar.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 16, 2020

"While there is a growing and prominent literature on the experiences of first-generation undergraduate students, there is a lack of research on the experiences of first-generation graduate students. People tend to assume that if someone makes it through the bachelor’s degree, they enter graduate school on a level playing field." - Bailey Smolarek, Inside Higher Ed

This proposed roundtable session for MLA 2021 seeks to explore the challenges and experiences faced by first-generation PhDs, both as graduate students and in their post-graduate careers. Some possible topics for exploration include:

In the Wake of Red Power Movements. New Perspectives on Indigenous Intellectual and Narrative Traditions

updated: 
Thursday, February 27, 2020 - 12:44pm
Institute of Advanced Study, University of Warwick
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

This symposium explores North American Indigenous intellectual and narrative traditions that were recovered, reclaimed, or (re-)invented in the wake of Red Power movements that emerged in the 1960s in the settler colonial societies of Canada and the USA. It asks: which new perspectives and visions have been developed over the last 50 years within Indigenous studies and related fields when looking at Indigenous land and land rights, Indigenous political and social sovereignty, extractivism and environmental destruction, oppressive sex/gender systems, and for describing the repercussions of settler colonialism in North America, especially in narrative representations?
