44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) March 21-24, 2013
Host Institution: Tufts University
In light of recent theories exposing the limits of national affiliation (postnational, transnational, area studies, etc.) this panel aims to open a discussion about nomadic cultures in cinema. The panel might address the following questions: how have such cultures been traditionally depicted in film, is there a shift in filmic depictions of these cultures in the wake of migration to Italy, in what ways have Italian characters represented the nomad in other cultures? Papers addressing theoretical understandings of the nomadic are particularly welcome. Please send 300 word abstracts and brief bio to Carmelo Galati at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30th.
Deadline: September 30, 2012
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)
The 2013 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location. The 44th annual event will be held in historic Boston, Massachusetts, a city known for its national and maritime history, academic facilities and collections, vibrant art, theatre, and food scenes, and blend of architecture. The Convention, located centrally near Boston Commons and the Theatre District at the Hyatt Regency, will include keynote and guest speakers, literary readings, film screenings, tours and workshops.
Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable. http://www.nemla.org/convention/2013/cfp.html
