SAMLA: BIG BOOKS: WHY BOTHER?
South Atlantic Modern Language Association; November 8-10, 2019; Atlanta, Georgia; Special Session
Students are often silent in classes. How do teachers interpret silence from students? How do students interpret silence from the teachers? Why do students’ choose to be silent in the classroom? Are teachers aware that students are choosing to be silent? Through the lens of languaging, silence is a linguistic/language device that is less addressed in the research. Like languaging, the use of silence in classrooms can be perceived as “creative and critical use of linguistic resources to mediate cognitively complex activities (Garcia & Wei, 2014, p. 10). Because second language (L2) writers have multiple languages in their linguistic repertoires, silence is one of the strategies that has been misinterpreted by many instructors.

Medievalism in America Panelist Needed

The Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture is organizing a panel on American medievalisms for a session at the June meeting of the New England American Studies Association at Fitchburg State University (Fitchburg, MA) on Saturday, June 8.
We are in need of a third presenter. Please contact us ASAP at email@example.com.
Founder, Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture
Collaborations of cinema with other art forms open up myriad of issues like the medium’s ability to maintain fidelity to the original narrative, its transformation of the original narrative, or its desire to treat the original as only an occasion for a different narrative. Adaptation studies have, as yet, largely concentrated on studying films as derivatives of original works reinforcing Rabindranath Tagore’s observation that “[c]inema is still playing second fiddle to literature.” It is commonly viewed as a presumptuous palimpsest whose merit lies in its techniques of appropriation, intersection, and transformation of the source text.
CPF: MMLA 2019, “American Literature After 1870”
The MMLA’s permanent section on American Literature After 1870 invites papers which, building on the conference theme, examine the topic of “dual citizenship” in American novels, poetry, and/or other kinds of texts. Our panel seeks a range of primary materials from a variety of times, places, and communities to create a fuller picture of the legal, cultural, and emotional dimensions of multiple citizenship in American literature.
From abolitionist literature to antiwar painting, from documentary photography to committed filmmaking, the arts have been tools of resistance to dominant ideologies. Artistic practices provide people with a means of dissent in democratic and/or authoritarian societies. Under the cover of visual or poetic metaphors, artists imagine alternative realities that can be read as arts of resistance. The world has witnessed in the postwar era a proliferation of artistic trends, a constant re-evaluation of what constitutes a work of art, a multiplicity of experimentations and explorations, not to mention an ever-increasing diversity of media available to express the artist’s ideas.
As recent events in Virginia demonstrated, blackface minstrelsy is far from being a thing of the past. Despite its taboo status and overtly racist underpinnings, blackface continues to happen. In his seminal work on the phenomenon, Eric Lott argued that early blackface minstrelsy emerged out of the “intersection of slave culture and earlier blackface stage characters such as the…clown of English pantomime and the clown of the American circus.” What might this lineage tell us about the ongoing prevalence and relevance of blackface? This session invites proposals that consider and examine modern and past manifestations of blackface minstrelsy, its legacies, and its influence.
