One of the biggest challenges for LGBTQiA students is the fact that there’s a constant question about regarding their need to “come out” and how to determine who is “safe” (a term with many definitions) to do that with on college campuses today. This panel will look at pedagogy approaches to fostering an inclusive environment and what to do when a student needs guidance and services due to their orientation. Participants are encouraged to present pedagogy methods for educating audiences (questioning, out, ally, and general) and fostering safer spaces. Papers can address approaches/lesson plans in the classroom, as well as resources for instructors in their service activities to the campus.  

[UPDATED] Special Session: Teaching for the Post-Anthropocene

Monday, June 10, 2019

Analyzing the Anthropocene, or the “Age of Man,” poses unique challenges for the classroom context. How does one “teach” the Anthropocene? How might we use the lenses of Rob Nixon’s “slow violence” or Christian Parenti’s “catastrophic convergence” to add a critical dimension to current teaching? Can we envision ways to work around administrative and standardizing obstacles – and even transcend that physical and ideological place we call classroom? This is essential, for, as Paulo Freire asserts, “critical consciousness is brought about not through an intellectual effort alone, but through praxis – through the authentic union of action and reflection.”

Graduate programs are primarily configured to equip students with the tools to thrive within an economy of knowledge production, but such a pedagogical framework takes for granted the structural inclusion of opportunities for developing competencies that are corollary to academic skills. Many of these competencies—planning and organization, collaborative management, transparent communicativeness, fiscal accountability, conflict resolution, stress tolerance, tactful coaching and active mentorship, to name a few—are increasingly being valued as essential for workplace success and leadership.

Creative Writing in the Age of Trump

Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel invites writers as well as literary scholars to address the question of political and literary engagement in our political age. In a political age, what happens to the novel or poem of interiority or introspection? Does literary material have to engage with the political? And if it doesn’t, can the political be read between its lines? What are the possibilities for creative work in an era that is increasingly in a state of emergency? Creative writers of all levels and genres are encouraged to explore these questions in the context of their own work. Paper proposals may be submitted on the NeMLA website. https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/User/SubmitAbstract/18240

Monday, September 30, 2019

Latin America is, according to the Washington Post, the most violent region in the world. It is no wonder then that a great deal of its cultural production depicts this everyday reality. This session welcomes papers in English or Spanish dealing with the representation of violence in recent Latin American audiovisual media (films, telenovelas, videoclips) and pondering how they reflect or reproduce, criticize or reinforce, the actual violence pervasive throughout the region.

Please submit a 300-word abstract and brief biographical statement by September 30, 2019 directly through NeMLA's system: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/18256

Monday, September 30, 2019

While for many years, the literary canon was the province of “dead white men,” the past fifty years have dramatically altered that paradigm. Contemporary creative writers, too, would like their work to reflect the diversity and complexity of human experience in terms of race, gender, sexual identification, ethnicity, nationality, and culture. This panel invites creative writers of all genres, genders, races, sexual orientations, nationalities, cultures, etc., to consider the challenges of being more inclusive in their work. Some questions that will be considered: Is it possible to write from the perspectives of races, genders, etc., of whom one is not a representative?

Pedagogies and Challenges: Teaching Asian America Through Graphic Narratives (Roundtable)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 11:03am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Over the past few years, graphic narratives as a form of cultural expression have gained positive reception in literary circles, but how does this genre serve the purpose for teaching about race in America? While teaching about race requires “viewing,” using graphic narratives can effectively educate students about race that sometimes traditional prose narratives cannot. However, some argue whether visual representations, like films and mass media, can potentially perpetuate racial stereotypes. Do graphic narratives reinforce or disrupt racial stereotypes? How do we adopt this genre to advance our teaching and promote students’ understanding of Asian America?

Graphic narratives including comics and graphic novels continue to garner attention by researchers and instructors across the modern languages. German Studies is no exception as the last decade has seen comics studies contributions about themes as widespread as history, manga, journalism, and foreign-language pedagogy. Lately, graphic narratives about the experience of migrants have been particularly pertinent in publications and academic panels.

The child occupies a fraught space in American culture, as notions of the “rebellious adolescent” and the “infant nation” have long tethered political upheaval to the figure of the child. This panel seeks to examine child figures who have performed disruption in the literature of America with particular interest in disruption that confronts notions of authority, ownership, and belonging.

Beyond Ruination: Climate Change and Contemporary Caribbean Novels

Caribbean authors have the challenge of narrating stories which can encompass the histories of genocide, slavery, indentured labor and colonialism. Alejo Carpentier, in his introduction to The Kingdom of This World (1949), is inspired by the ruins of the Sans-Souci Palace in Haiti, to imagine, in the ruination of the colonial past, a miraculous new future. His ideas spawned a genre that helped formerly colonized peoples decolonize by revaluing formerly subjugated knowledges.

Passing on: Property, Family and Death in Narratives of Inheritance

Friday, June 21, 2019

From Shakespeare’s King Lear to Flaubert’s Frédéric Moreau, who lives off of his uncle’s money, and Edward St Aubyn’s novels about the troubled heir Patrick Melrose, literature has always been occupied with inheritance and inherited wealth. The insights provided by this literary legacy are more important than ever. Once considered a relic from the aristocratic past superseded by liberal meritocracy, inherited wealth is now recognized as a source of rising social inequality. It therefore poses an important challenge for the present – and for the future. To meet this challenge, inheritance must be understood in all its historical and cultural complexity. For inheritance is more than a means of transferring wealth between generations.

Proposal Deadline: June 10, 2019

For this year’s “Poetry and Poetics” session, we are open to paper topics that span a wide range of (sub)genres, time periods, and critical approaches. Given the PAMLA 2019 conference theme of “Send In the Clowns,” we are especially interested in papers that engage with poetic “clowning” of all sorts—including but not limited to:

No one escapes Marvel’s Endgame: the economic and cultural impact of the past few decades’ boom in superhero movies, and more broadly superhero narratives, is evident well beyond the boundaries of the United States. In fact, the presence and influence of American comic-book superheroes abroad started shortly after the debut of DC's Superman in 1938, and has been growing ever since.

Call for Chapters - Audio Disruption

updated: 
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:47am
David Allan/Saint Joseph's University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 1, 2019

Objective of the book: This edited research book focuses on audio disruption from a wide spectrum. While some industries have been more disruptive than others, none have probably been more transformational than music streaming (Spotify, Pandora, etc.). While the disruption of the music industry itself due to streaming has been well documented, the disruption of the industries that rely on popular music namely radio, advertising and retail have not. For radio (iHeartMedia, Beasley, Entercom, etc.), this includes the additional audio competition and ever expanding availability and transportability.
