Panel Chair: Tania Nicolaou

How does contemporary fiction of the Americas and Caribbean explore practices of healing? This panel considers all aspects of healing, including but not limited to religion, indigenous practices and rituals, the spiritual, and through community and the collective. How does their depiction in literature allow for generative further discussion about identity, culture, and tradition, and what does this mean in the 21st century?

Over the past decade, the media ecology has been dramatically shifting with the advent of online “overthe-top” streaming services, the streaming wars that followed, and the platformization of the web. As the distance between big tech companies and legacy media players rapidly dwindles, rippling effects can be felt across industries, audience practices, regulatory frameworks, and more. Simultaneously, the rise of streaming services also continues to provoke further theorizations on topics that have concerned media scholars for decades regarding the asymmetrical dynamics of power and influence as it relates to globalization processes, representation, identity, politics, cultural and national mediations, and economic development.

For a Book of Essays on Forgotten Disney

 

Since Walt Disney released the first animated talking short Steamboat Willie in 1928, the Disney name has been associated with many classics of film and television. Recognized worldwide, these works and their characters have received extensive popular and critical attention and overshadowed other interesting but less significant offerings in Disney’s prolific oeuvre.

In Sensory Experiments (2020), Erica Fretwell argues that “literature is a sensitizing mechanism, not merely a representation but an amplification of experience,” positing literature as “a technology […] that has the potential to reproduce—not copy but produce more—feeling and […] to create more connections to the world by registering more differences in it” (28-29). Fretwell makes that claim in the context of her transatlantic study of the relations between American literature and the failed science of psychophysics as it developed in Germany at the end of the nineteenth century.

In Song of the Shank, Jeff Allen explores his characters’ sense of “placelessness...empty distance...like retracted thoughts, half-told secrets.”  What defines a writer’s underlying map of “urban space?”  Urbanity as a focus offers history, but how do cities’ secret histories, deep ecologies, and furtive sounds offer a shape to urban narrative?  What memory resides in cities’ erased/lingering boundaries, vacant lots, and disintegrating concrete?  This roundtable explores how writers and other artists have utilized particular cities’ cores, edges, and points of transit as means to rethink the shape, shift, and stasis of urban space.  We welcome papers on the full range of literary forms, but also welcome examinations of visual and sonic expression

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.
