*Updated Deadline Extension to 10/15/21* NeMLA 2022 - Exploring Plurality: Queering Feminism(s), Neoliberalism, and the Commodification of Intersectionality

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 10:58pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

After a successful roundtable at the 2021 NeMLA conference, we again invite participants to share their experiences with interdisciplinary collaborations. Proposals are welcome from those who have broken disciplinary silos in the areas of research, course development and/or teaching. We will share success stories and pitfalls in building and sustaining those relationships. We are interested in hearing about triumphs as well as learning from less successful attempts, and strongly encourage team presentations. The organizers (a mathematician and a humanist) will discuss their own experiences leading initiatives and co-developing courses that blend STEM and the humanities.

Roundtable: Students as Agents: Reenvisioning BIPOC German Studies at Minority Serving Institutions

What does it mean to teach German studies at Minority Serving Institutions (such as HBCUs, HSIs, TCUs, AAPISIs) in keeping with the unique missions and programming of these institutions of higher education? German studies, when presented and practiced as unmarked whiteness in the cannon, curricula, and programs, and where diversity is peripheral, reproduces existing power structures and excludes the voices and experiences of our students. This lack of representation and identification leads to underrepresentation of Students of Color in German studies.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel explores topographies of memory and architecture as a powerful force for cinematic storytelling, cityscapes’ psychosis, etc. As part of the special session, we are looking for contributions examining and analyzing diverse relationships between cinema, television, architecture, and memory and their links with contemporary Spanish media and identity. Submissions in English and Spanish, although we recommend the latter.Since Foucault conceptualized the notion of “heterotopy” as those ephemeral or stable places in relation to the parameters of exclusions of the dominant groups, the emergence of the internet and social media has further transformed traditional heterotopias.

Studying Trauma as a Part of Life and Understanding/Seeking Reconciliation

Trauma when remains unresolved can end up causing more harm than one can imagine. Trauma can be caused by the most insignificant of incidents that happen in a person’s life. But how far have we come in understanding the trope of trauma? How do we talk about it with proper sensitivity? How much do we push before a past trauma breaks us again? In these trying times when solidarity and care are the only ways to make the world a more humane space to sustain within, how shall we treat the trauma of our loved ones and fellow human beings? How do we realize that the shame associated with trauma is but extreme societal conditioning? How do we unlearn the social stigma related to trauma? How does trauma force us to alter our memories as a defense mechanism?

Teaching the Humanities Online in a Post-COVID World: Practical Strategies

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This workshop prepares humanities faculty to teach their classes effectively and imaginatively. To this end, the workshop has two goals. First, it surveys the major lessons learned during the emergency shift to online instruction during the coronavirus pandemic. Second, it offers specific, concrete strategies for moving forward as colleges and universities return to some measure of instructional normality.

The strategies in this workshop will address the following pedagogical areas: course design and management, best practices in the use of Zoom, discussion dynamics, and assignment design.

Literature and Film of South Asia: Dialogues with the European Canon

updated: 
Monday, June 21, 2021 - 2:52pm
Richard Schumaker/NeMLA 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable will examine adaptations of Western canonical works by South Asian novelists, poets, filmmakers, and essayists. We want to keep the focus of this session as wide and as open as possible. Our suggested approach for your presentations is to isolate a single passage, character, or chapter and explore similarities and differences between your target of study and the original Western “version.” Ideally, roundtable participants will share precise texts or film clips with the attending audience and fellow roundtable members.

Thematic areas of interest:

· gender,

· social structure

· social change

· history

· family

· post-colonial themes
