CFP: Roundtable for NeMLA Virtual Conference (Deadline: 10.19.2020)

Call for Papers for NeMLA’s 2021 virtual conference from March 11-14

Northeast Modern Language Association Conference

3/11/21 – 3/14/21, Philadelphia, PA

This roundtable will explore manifestations of the grotesque in various forms and genres, from a range of periods, and from a range of critical approaches. These might include, but not be exclusive to, analyses informed by posthumanism, postmaterialism, postmillenniallism, or a similar critical lens. In an age when so much seems grotesque—from our art to our politics to our everyday lives—this session will provide not only new ways to think about literature informed by or exhibiting elements of the grotesque but also ways to conceptualize our current historical and cultural moment. Submit a 250-300 word abstract and a brief c.v. by Oct. 19 to the NeMLA website:
