Chinese Lit and Film after 1900 (RMMLA)–cfp

CFP: Chinese Literature and Film After 1900
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association 77th Annual Convention
Conference Date: October 10-12, 2024
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

This panel seeks to illuminate the diverse array of voices, narratives, and experiences within modern Chinese literature and film that are often ignored or marginalized in mainstream discourse. We invite papers that delve into the works of writers and filmmakers from China and the Sinophone sphere who represent marginalized communities, such as ethnic and racial minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, women, and those from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Additionally, we welcome studies that focus on lesser-known literary works and films that challenge dominant narratives and amplify underrepresented voices.

Interested participants should submit a 250-word abstract and a short biography (2-3 sentences) through this Google Form by March 15, 2024. The language of the presentations will be in English.
