CALL FOR PAPERS

44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts

Frivolous Cultures, Serious Politics:
Women in Spanish Cultural Arena 1900-1936

The cultural life of early twentieth-century Spain is often conceived as a
black and white picture: the seriousness of hard-core intellectuals
debating the “problem of Spain” versus the supposed frivolity of popular
pleasures evading the said problem. It is possible to assume, however,
that many artists and intellectuals, as well as their audiences, did not
experience politics and pleasures as necessarily opposed to each other.
Moreover, the pleasures of popular culture can, and often do, create the
conditions for social change. This panel seeks to examine the points of
contact between, on the one hand, serious ideological and political
platforms, and, on the other hand, the lighter spaces of popular culture.
More specifically, the panel aims to explore how, during the first four
decades of the twentieth century, the spaces of mass and popular culture
provided opportunities for women’s involvement in the public arena. We
invite submissions that look at these points of contact between hard
politics and productive pleasures in the fields of popular literature, mass
culture, music and performance, fashion… Please send 300 word abstracts by
email attachment to Pepa Anastasio maria.j.anastasio@hofstra.edu>
and Nuria Cruz-Cámara ncruzcam@utk.edu> at these email addresses
before September 30, 2012: maria.j.anastasio@hofstra.edu> ;
ncruzcam@utk.edu>

Deadline: September 30, 2012
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
Email address and Telephone number
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).

* The Politics and Poetics of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz examines the role of occasional verse in the works of the celebrated colonial Mexican nun. The poems that Sor Juana wrote for special occasions (birthdays, funerals, religious feasts, coronations, and the like) have been considered inconsequential by literary historians; but from a socio-historical perspective, George Antony Thomas argues they hold a particular interest for scholars of colonial Latin American literature. For Thomas, these compositions establish a particular set of rhetorical strategies, which he labels the author's 'political aesthetics.' He demonstrates how this body of the famous nun's writings, previously overlooked by scholars, sheds new light on Sor Juana's interactions with individuals in colonial society and throughout the Spanish Empire.
