2021 – 2022 Reckonings: The Northeastern Humanities Center invites proposals on the theme of Reckonings. The term reckoning suggests an intersectional, multidimensional process of truth-telling and accountability around all forms of systemic oppression, from the intimate and familial, to the social and political, to the planetary and cosmic. Reckoning calls for accountability through narration of harms, adjudication of rights, and acts of judgment, but it may also imply transformative possibilities of amnesty, forgiveness, reconciliation, and reparation. Reckonings may be literary, juridical, political, ethical, aesthetic, and/or emotional, expressed through imaginative as well as political consciousness. Reckoning-whether paying debts or cogitating-implicates questions of time and place. The year 2020 has been popularly described as a moment of racial reckoning. Other recent reckonings include those around misogyny; climate justice; social welfare and economic inequality; spiritual community, and global interconnection. We welcome proposals from all disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Presenting at this event will be WGSS and English faculty K.J. Rawson and WGSS executive committee members N. Fadeke Castor and Jessica Linker.
