South Atlantic Modern Language Association / SAMLA 91 conference  Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships

November 15-17, 2019

Westin Peachtree Plaza, Atlanta GA


This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, playwrights, jazz musicians, punks, hip hop artists, mipsters, filmmakers, and visual artists, through the lens of language.

Papers are invited that explore the diverse compositions of Muslim American identities in cultural texts as they engage with the multiple vocabularies of national, theoretical, literary, and aesthetic spaces. With the theme of SAMLA 91, Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships, panelists are asked to consider how these writers and artists employ different languages in their articulation of assimilation, alterity, dissent, and transgression as Muslim Americans in high or low art forms. For further information about the conference theme, SAMLA membership, and conference registration, please see https://samla.memberclicks.net/.  

Please submit a 300-word abstract, with a short biography, institutional affiliation, and A/V requirements, to Dr. Mahwash Shoaib (mahwashshoaib@hotmail.com) by July 14.
