Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Scholarship on the Brut has begun to reexamine the role of space and place in the text’s presentation and readers’ reception of insular history.  The Brut texts provide fertile grounds for such discussions, as much of the legendary history documented in the Brut involves reshaping and redefining insular territory, including descriptions of the island and its wonders, the construction of cities and castles, the renaming of places and cities by rulers and conquerors, among others.  This session seeks proposals that further the critical conversation about territorial and textual space and its relation to language in the Brut and in its analogues.  We are particularly interested in proposals that examine ways the Brut

Digital Humanities in the Study of Spanish Literature and Culture

Digital Humanities has the potential to add to the traditional study of Spanish Literature and Culture. By moving beyond the traditional theoretical frameworks of literary theory and criticism, Digital Humanities processes provide the opportunity to re-examine cultural production. Digital Humanities also provides an outlet to examine the intersectionality of Linguistics and Literature and Culture, combining two fields which have traditionally remained exclusive. Therefore, this panel provides the opportunity to showcase Digital Humanities projects and/or methods that incorporate digital tools in the interrogation of Spanish Literature and Culture, and/or those which combine Linguistics and Literature and Culture.

Embodiment and Agency in Postcolonial Literature (NeMLA 2022)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 8, 2021 - 4:01pm
NeMLA 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel holds space for depictions of embodied practices/practices of agency in bodies of women of color, queer, nonbinary, trans, and other subjectivities in postcolonial literature and literatures of the Global South. What is the relation between the body and exercising agency? How might we think of these practices as embodied and embodying: as practices done in/through/by the body, as well as practices that reify the body? What are the limitations of these projects, and to what degree are they successful? How might these practices be adopted by readers outside of the text?

In Strange Natures: Futurity, Empathy, and the Queer Ecological Imagination (2013), Nicole Seymour writes, “In the past few years, queer ecology has emerged as a burgeoning area of interdisciplinary study,” (21) which traces and builds upon a host of “empathetic, ethical interrelationships between the queer and the non-human” (23). In a similar vein, Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands and Bruce Erickson state in “A Genealogy of Queer Ecologies” that “the task of a queer ecology is to probe the intersections of sex and nature with an eye to developing a sexual politics that more clearly includes considerations of the natural world and its biosocial constitution” (161).

William Gay Panel

ALA Symposium "Rebirth Renewal Renaissance"
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 30, 2021

In keeping with the symposium theme of "Rebirth Renewal Renaissance," this panel proposes a new look at the works of William Gay.  A search of the MLA International Bibliography shows little work on Gay, and that which does exist locuses more on his first two novels (The Long Home and Provinces of Night) and his short fiction.  This panel welcomes papers on Gay's later published work, and especially on his work--The Lost Country, Little Sister Death, and Stoneburner--published posthoumously.

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.
