updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2020 - 12:07pm
Stacie Vos, UC San Diego
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

The 2020 pandemic has required everyone to think about the boundaries of self and body in new ways, but these questions were already at the center of medieval devotional texts from the Ancrene Wisse to the Shewings of Julian of Norwich, and even The Book of Margery Kempe, in which Margery seeks harbor wherever she goes. 

 

This session asks for presentations related to enclosure and isolation in medieval art, history and literature, especially works that influence prose writings in the vernacular.

NeMLA 2021 Session: Ancient Herstory: Women and Gender in Antiquity and Beyond

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

In his Funeral Oration, Pericles illustrates the low status of women in ancient Athens, saying “A woman’s reputation is highest when men say little about her, whether it be good or evil.” Despite Pericles’ admonition, women held a central place in Classical literature and mythology, which cast them in a diverse array of roles: goddesses, slaves, mothers, daughters, virgins, whores, and warriors. These depictions laid the groundwork for the representations of women in subsequent literature and have continued to shape our understanding of gender. This session will explore depictions of women and gender in Greco-Roman texts and its impact on the literature of subsequent periods. Possible approaches include by are not limited to:

Author as Artist: Creative Contributions in Color / Texture (Creative)

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2020 - 1:48pm
NeMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Color and texture are often perceived as “wallpaper” – a humdrum backdrop against which the action of a literary work unfolds. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper; Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls…; and Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, among many others, purposely and effectively challenge such perception. This creative session (re)considers the author as artist, (re)casting color and texture as deliberate, meaningful components of literary experience. Open to considering a variety of authors and genres in relation to its theme, this creative session particularly welcomes papers highlighting color and/or texture as relate to either Gilman, or Shange, or Walker.

Reminder: Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

 As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.
