April 30-May 3, 2015 Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Abstract Deadline: September 30, 2014

From Florence Nightingale to Nurse Ratched, nurses have been portrayed by others and by themselves as, in turn, idealized paragons of femininity and vilified portents of social disintegration. This roundtable seeks papers that consider the complex ways in which this ambiguous figure has navigated the wounded bodies, minds, places, and social relationships that litter the pages of literature.

Abstract Deadline: September 30, 2014

This panel seeks to explore the complex and often contradictory notion of melancholy and its representations as madness and genius/creativity.

Call for Papers for a Session Entitled "‘Ich verstehe die Welt nicht mehr!’: (In)Sanity in German Literature and Culture" at the Northeast Modern Language Association 46th Annual Convention

April 30-May 3, 2015 Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Abstract Deadline: September 30, 2014

'Sapere Aude!' was the motto that accompanied the Enlightenment on its quest for rational knowledge and scientific progress. Its literary aftermath, though, is populated with ghosts, doppelgängers, and madmen. The lack of sanity has kept German literature thriving as it bears witness to scientific, social, and political changes throughout the centuries. Topics can include the relation between madness and all aspects of the arts, society, or science, as well as the author, narrator, genre, or reader.

Using the interactive social model of disability proposed by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as a point of departure, this panel will address disability as it appears in French and Francophone literature. In what format or genre is the account presented? To what extent, if any, does the narrator or character witness to history?

Call for Papers for a Session Entitled "The Mind, the Medium, the Message: Neuroatypicals in Popular Culture" at the Northeast Modern Language Association 46th Annual Convention

April 30-May 3, 2015 Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Abstract Deadline: September 30, 2014

This panel will explore the ways that popular culture depicts those with differently-wired brains. From bipolar disorder in Homeland and Silver Linings Playbook to the rising popularity of spectrum-focused autopathographies, how popular media portrays and marginalises madness and other neuroatypical manifestations can tell us a lot about the relationship that society has with illness and, ultimately, what we value in ourselves and in one another.
