Casas Tomadas: Monsters and Metaphors on the Periphery of Latin American Literature

Listen to this posting

Monsters have always played an important role in the literature of Latin America and have managed to persist in the national imaginations from which hispano- and lusophone writers draw their own source material. Dictators, strongmen, and organized crime roam the peripheries

of language and history side by side with monsters, specters, and creatures horrible to behold. This panel will draw together scholarship exploring the ways in which monsters, of the imagination and of history, per

Women and the Great War: A Reexamination

Listen to this posting

Typically, scholarly reflection on the Great War focuses on military activity and masculine performance; in contrast, this NeMLA 2023 seminar examines the importance of women as fictional characters, authors, and purveyors of legacies associated with the Great War of 1914-1918. By privileging the role of women, it is hoped that we can bring a fresh critical light to this pivotal moment in world history. Please note the very wide range of perspectives in this seminar: authors, characters, and

Paradise Lost. Presentations of Nostalgic Longing in Digital Games

Listen to this posting

Paradise Lost is not only the title of John Milton’s famous epic poem (1667), but also a philosophical-theological notion linked to and emerging from the ‘Fall from Eden’ in Genesis. It expresses — or imagines — the human experience of a definite rupture in history, the inextinguishable urge to return to the period before the rupture and — unable to do so — thus constructs an idealized version of this past to long for. Throughout history, this lo

NeMLA 2023 CFP: The Power of Refusal: Creating and Identifying Spaces for Love and Care

Listen to this posting

Literature, art, and scholarship can challenge social structures that underpin injustice and create spaces where love and care can flourish. Yet they can also spectacularize, universalize, or appropriate lived experiences.

This seminar builds on successful seminars from the past three years on the roles and limits of narrative in bearing witness to trauma and injustice. This year, we explore refusal, whether in narrative, art, or literary criticism, as a strategic tool for resistance

This roundtable session is interested in resilience as a form of individual emotional labor that, like all emotional labor according to Arlie Russell Hochschild, places unequal demands on faculty who are untenured, contingent, or who identify in historically-marginalized identity categories. Academic identities are tied to the production of scholarly projects, and, according to Skovholt and Trotter-Mathison, one of the many benefits of resilience is that it can “stabilize or even increa

As Klein argues, this story of climate change diminishes social agency, promotes powerlessness, and displaces solutions beyond the repetition of the status quo. Several years later, capitalist realism and apocalypse remain primary modes through which climate futures are envisioned in news media, fi
