    Video games and adaptation (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel welcomes reflections on the process of adapting texts / films / graphic novels into video games, being open to theoretical analyses as well as to case studies (for example, of the narrative ecosystem of franchises). It seeks to bring together the most popular approaches to studying the medium -- narratological and ludological perspectives, as well as reflections on the translation of cinematic adaptation theory to the medium of video games – in order to ensure a rich conversation. ...

    Cosmos and Community (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The theme of the 2020 Northeastern Modern Language Association’s annual convention is “Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures” - few authors’ works speak more directly to this topic than those of Alexander von Humboldt. Alexander von Humboldt, whose 250 th birthday is being commemorated throughout Germany this year, redefined many areas of German scientific life. As a botanist, ethnologist, cartographer, meteorologist, and linguist interested in all aspects of...

    Shaping Men: Identity and Masculinity in Italian Culture (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    What makes a man a man? How is masculinity shaped by spaces, times, languages, and cultures? How are men expected to behave in public and in private? In addition to addressing these questions, the panel would like to explore the concept of masculinity and how this is constructed by social contexts and human relationships. To this day, numerous men are profoundly impacted by adolescent experiences, peer pressure, and expectations based on “male gender roles.” This session invites contributions...

    Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and...

    American Gothic Domesticity: Blissful Misery (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Chairs: Danielle Cofer (University of Rhode Island) Caitlin Duffy (SUNY Stony Brook University) Leslie Fiedler describes American fiction as “bewilderingly and embarrassingly, a gothic fiction… in a land of light and affirmation.” This panel pushes past Fiedler’s focus to instead explore the dark and enclosed spaces of the American home. These sites are featured in countless texts, from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” (1839), to Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents...

    Irony, Humor, and Laughter in Italian Literature (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    What is the relationship between irony and other literary techniques, including but not limited to humor? How do authors utilize irony and humor in their texts? Are humor and irony to be considered a literary tool to disguise a personal or political agenda? Or are they simply a resource to entertain their readers? This panel seeks presentations that analyze or investigate the role of irony, humor, and laughter in texts from early modern to contemporary examples by Italian writers. This...

    Psychoanalysis and Laughter: Unconscious Meanings and Political Subversions (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    In his famous study on “Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious," Freud argues that jokes, and the laughter they elicit, allow a kind of access to the unconscious. They permit, among other things, the fulfillment of repressed desires, the channeling of aggression into an acceptable social form, and polysemic satisfaction. As the structure of a joke operates similarly to the structure of a dream (by condensation and displacement, metaphor and metonymy), it also enables the revelation of...

    Through the Looking Glass: Spaces of the Fantastic as Reflections on the Present (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel aims to explore the representation of literary spaces in European literature of the fantastic. With portraits of imaginary cities and landscapes, across centuries and national traditions, the fantastic has offered escapism and entertainment, but it has also profoundly shaped the imagination of readers in the perception of their own realities. The goal of this panel is to understand and articulate the extent to which literature of the fantastic has opened up possibilities for...

    Mythology from Modernity to the Post-Modern: Regional and Global Perspectives (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    For their 2019 convention, the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) added Classics as a secondary area of inquiry under Comparative Literature. This will be the second year with Classics on the program! We had quite a number of panels on Classics last year, and expect similar numbers this year. NeMLA is a wonderful, vibrant, and friendly conference. Please consider submitting an abstract for a panel on Mythology from Modernity to the Post-Modern: Regional and Global Perspectives for...

    Comics and the Shaping of Identity: Queer Spaces and Gendered Places (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This panel investigates how queer spaces and identities get performed and contested through the affordances, narratives, and spatial politics of comics. Recent scholarship in comics studies has sought to extend queer approaches to the field beyond a sexual politics of recognition, opening up new opportunities to engage with visual culture and critical geographies to consider how queer spatiality disrupts hegemonic heterosexuality. With that in mind, this panel invites proposals that consider the...

    Barbarians Within: Constructing the Barbaric Other in Speculative Fiction (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    For the past two years, NeMLA’s keynote speakers have evoked the image of barbarians at the gates, and they are not alone in their use of this powerful image. Barbarians evoke a particular kind of wildness and danger that continues to resonate in popular culture, from the Dothraki and Wildlings in Game of Thrones, to the raiders in Parable of the Sower. In response to NeMLA 2020’s theme, “Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages and Cultures,” we invite presentations that...

    Unrealized Futures: Post-Socialist Memory in German-language Literature (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    For this panel, we invite contributions on literary explorations of the socialist legacy in Eastern Europe in its relation to the present and the future. Much of the post-1989 scholarship has focused on Aufarbeitung broadly defined as a crucial trait of literature from and about the former East. More recently, some scholars have brought into view another dimension of literary engagement with Eastern Europe’s past: an engagement with the hopes and dreams that never came to fruition and the...

    Lost—and Gained—in Translation: Montale's Poetry and Its Exchanges with World Poetry (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Imagine having provided a faithful translation of an Italian poem into Arabic, then having this Arabic text translated into French and the French version in its turn into Polish. Continue with this chain of translations using different languages (Russian, Czech, Bulgarian, Dutch, German, Spanish). Last of all, have the text translated back into Italian. What would the result of this ‘game’ be? It would be a new text, certainly different from the original one and – maybe – even better. The...

    Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human (NeMLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Topic: Abstracts are sought for a NeMLA seminar entitled Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human, which aims to expand critical study of representations of the environment in Spanish culture by exploring specifically the more-than-human. Our purpose is to highlight the central roles that the beyond-human has played in texts from the medieval through the post-crisis periods that counter those political, economic, and social strategies that have led to the...
