Articulating the Human and Its Others
A session sponsored by the Society for Critical Exchange
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
Hyatt New Brunswick, New Jersey, 7-10 April 2011
How do literary and other texts articulate, reify, or produce the human--as category, claim, effect, etc.--as well as its oppositional others, such as the inhuman, subhuman, or posthuman? Is it possible to think or express what is counter to the human without reinscribing the human? How are multiplicities or hybridities of human natures or essences articulated?
Abstracts for 20-minute presentations due 30 Sept. 2010, preferably by e-mail.
Besides the abstract, a proposal must include the following:
Name and affiliation
A/V requirements (or an indication that no A/V will be required)
The complete call for papers for the 2010 convention is posted on the NeMLA website. Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA panel; however, panelists can only present one paper. Convention participants may present at a paper session panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
