NeMLA Annual Convention
11-14 March, 2021
Fans demonstrate a broad interest in the past, both of their objects of fandom and their own communities. They collect, catalog, preserve, restore, and publicly display historical artifacts and information in their own archives and museums. They study archival materials and collections, interview witnesses, and read historical scholarship, developing historical narratives and theses. Their research materializes in the form of analog and digital nonfiction media such as print and online publications, documentaries, podcasts, video tutorials, and pedagogical initiatives. Through their work, fans historicize their own fandom and tie it into broader historical questions, connecting to issues like heritage, gender, and the nation.

This panel is a part of the 52nd Annual Convention of the The Northeast Modern Language Association. The conference will take place at the Marriott Hotel Downtown in Philadelphia, PA, with the support of the University of Pennsylvania, the local host institution.
We invite the participants to explore some of the ways in which Afro-Latin American experience was narrated by writers, scientists, and politicians in Latin America from the late XIX century to mid-XX century and beyond. We encourage to address Anglophone, Hispanophone, and Lusophone contexts of the said regions and the ties between these.
As of this writing, we find ourselves about ten days into international protests following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Protesters the world over have made specific calls to action: acknowledge that black lives matter, educate yourself about social and racial injustice, and change the legal system that allows these heinous acts to go unpunished. In thinking through how we in the field of educational theatre can proactively address these needs, I reminded myself that there are many artists and educators who are already deeply engaged in this work.
From the time government agencies and the press reported the emergence of a novel corona virus in late 2019, there has been a fundamental shift in the way we congregate, communicate, and educate across the world. Artists and educators have been called upon to reinvent their practice seemingly overnight. While we struggle to balance our personal health and wellness, our community contributions remain as vital as ever. In tribute to this reinvention, ArtsPraxis invites you to share your scholarship, practice, and praxis. As we’ve asked before, we welcome teachers, drama therapists, applied theatre practitioners, theatre-makers, performance artists, and scholars to offer vocabularies, ideas, strategies, practices, measures, and outcomes.
We would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the panel Identity, Diversity, and Representation in Video Games, to be held at the 52nd Annual Northeast MLA Conference in Philadelphia, PA on March 11-14, 2021. Please contact Ted Harrison with any questions at email@example.com.
