CFP: Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures

51st Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Marriott Copley Place
March 5 - 8, 2020
Stichtag: 30.09.2019

Please join the Northeast Modern Language Association for its 51st Annual Convention at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, conveniently located in the heart of the city. The theme of NeMLA 2020 is „Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures“ — a topic embracing the many facets that define each and every human being across cultures and languages, as well as the many ways in which we interact with each other in today’s rapidly changing global world.

NeMLA is thrilled to announce that Boston University is the local host institution and that the featured author is Andre Dubus III, whose novel Gone So Long will be the focus of „NeMLA Reads Together.“ The opening address will be given by Professor Maurice Lee, author of the award-winning Uncertain Chances: Science, Skepticism, and Belief in 19th-century American Literature.

This year features more than 400 sessions, many focused on comics studies, including sessions on:

  • American superheroes around the world
  • Autobiographical comics
  • Comics as adaptation
  • Comics as resistance
  • Gender and sexuality in comics
  • German-language comics and graphic novels
  • Feminism and science fiction in Hispianic culture
  • Hayao Miyazaki
