E21: Presentivism in the Eighteenth-Century Studies Classroom

In its manifesto, the V21 Collective asserts that “Victorian Studies has fallen prey to positivist historicism: a mode of inquiry that aims to do little more than exhaustively describe, preserve, and display the past” and advocates for “a new openness to presentism: an awareness that our interest in the period is motivated by certain features of our own moment.” At the 2018 ASECS, the same question was asked of eighteenth-century studies: as a discipline, have we “fallen prey to positivist historicism,” and would it benefit us to be open to presentism? Do we need our own V21, or E21?

Highbrow, Lowbrow, No-brow: Research and Aesthetic Values in the Humanities

The HERA conference peer review program committee invites proposals for presentations at the 2019 conference. The program committee’s theme is designed to incorporate any and all possible connotations. Our understanding of the tensions and implications of the “highbrow-lowbrow” continuum have existed for as long as the humanities. Although the terms are first associated with the 19th century, connotations of the humanities as possessing elevated, elite, upper class, or even sanctified religious ritual, intellectual, or cultural endeavor may be traced back to ancient times. Similarly, aspects of the humanities variously characterized as being lowly, crude or ordinary, lower class, or even pagan, anti-intellectual, or low class may also be

From Migrant to Refugee: Theorizing Diasporic Identities

“Refugee and immigrant are very different. A refugee is someone ejected from his or her past, who has no future, whose present is totally empty of meaning. In a refugee camp, you live outside of time – you don’t know when you’re going to eat, let alone when you’re going to get out of there. And you’re also outside of space because the camp is a no man’s land. To be a human being you have to be part of something. The first time we got an official piece of paper from Canada, my whole family stared at it – until then, we were stateless, part of nothing.”

Call for Papers – Altered Carbon

 

Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays related to the Netflix Original series Altered Carbon (2018). Since season two starts shooting in October and is supposed to be released in the first half of 2019, we feel that a collection of academic articles about the first season would be in order around the same time. One acclaimed academic publisher has already expressed interest in the collection.

While scholars often note that Hoccleve’s and Langland’s poetic personae each make the other more understandable, rarely have these poets been analyzed together in great detail. Thus, with this session, The International Hoccleve Society and International Piers Plowman Society seek to provide an occasion to do so. The Societies invite paper submissions that examine the ways interpretive discourses around Hoccleve’s and Langland’s works overlap and intersect.

In today’s global society, understanding different cultures as we interact and construct our beliefs and identities has never been more important. As educators, our responsibility to guide students in developing critical thinking in their consumption of visual media is crucial to their ability to appreciate different perspectives. While teachers may recognize intuitively the power of film to expose students to other languages and cultures, examining the benefits of using it to develop students’ creativity and analytical skills can help maximize its effectiveness in the classroom.

Critical scholarship of comics, cartoons, and graphic narratives has been a burgeoning field in research and debate for at least the last twenty-five years. Amid such scholarly richness, LGBTQ comics criticism and scholarly attention to LGBTQ comics and cartoons is at least keeping pace with a field within which it is still negotiating its position.

The Visible Cities': Teaching Language and Culture through the City

Most language teachers think that cities, in all their aspects, are an important and rich resource for the language classroom. The study of a city, what we can see in a movie or read in a literary work, exposes students to authentic language and offers plenty of material to be integrated in the classroom. Cities are privileged windows through which students have the opportunity to address historical, political, artistic and social issues. Moreover, there are many elements inside the city that have the potential of making students aware of the importance of intercultural proficiency and can stimulate their interest in the culture of the target language.
