45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 3-6, 2014
Host: Susquehanna University
Ce panel cherche à mettre à profit dans le champ de l’histoire littéraire francophone la critique récente de la version téléologique de l’histoire. Usant du rapprochement et de l’anachronisme, la pensée glissantienne offre un modèle pour une telle tentative. Quels autres paysages littéraires et culturels émergent d’un tel déplacement épistémologique ? Merci d’envoyer les propositions de communication accompagnées d’une courte description biographique à firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)
The 2014 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This capitol city set on the Susquehanna River is known for its vibrant restaurant scene, historical sites, the National Civil War museum, and nearby Amish Country, antique shops and Hershey Park. NeMLA has arranged low hotel rates of $104-$124.
The 2014 event will include guest speakers, literary readings, professional events, and workshops. A reading by George Saunders will open the Convention. His 2013 collection of short fiction, The Tenth of December, has been acclaimed by the New York Times as “the best book you’ll read this year.” The Keynote speaker will be David Staller of Project Shaw.
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/2014/cfp.html
