Gothic Girlhood: Intersecting Identities Across Gothic Traditions

Monday, September 30, 2019

Diana Wallace and Andrew Smith note that the Female Gothic has been an ever-shifting category since its introduction into literary vocabulary by Ellen Moers in 1976, asserting that the Female Gothic “is shaped by...national identity, sexuality, language, race, and history” (The Female Gothic, 10). Gothic scholarship has long demonstrated that the mode varies across national and continental borders particularly drawing out distinctions between the American and the British. However, less attention has been paid to the concept of age. Keeping in mind the conference theme, how does the space of girlhood and/or adolescence complicate or further our understanding of the Female Gothic?

Materiality is the mediating force through which our senses engage information. As print and digital technologies alike have become increasingly more sophisticated, accessible, and affordable, some creators, scholars, and consumers have embraced innovative digital technologies, while others remain devoted to more familiar materials and formats. Differences in income, education, geographical location, and other factors heavily influence the technologies—digital and physical—through which we produce and consume content, conduct business, and communicate with others.

French Religious Spaces, Rhetoric, and Identity: 1534-1790

 

How did religious spaces and their regulation in France between 1534 and 1790 shape religious rhetoric and identities? How did the legacies or privation of these spaces inform or define the identities of French missionaries in the colonies, or of French-speaking religious communities in exile? What was the relationship between private and public spaces and religious identities?

Suggested topics may include:

117th Annual Conference - San Diego, California
Thursday, November 14 - Sunday, November 17, 2019

This session will focus on Samuel Beckett, the preeminent advocate for the clown. In Beckett’s novels, the protagonists and the narrator are often clowns. Waiting For Godot was written for actors who donned the attire of tramp-clowns. Beckett’s inspiration often sprang from silent film— he emulated Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

Friday, November 29, 2019

Writers and writers’ organisations have a long history of using their public standing and cultural capital to promote causes that transcend the literary sphere, from abolition and gender equality to free expression, anti-war agitation, and environmental issues. This two-day conference explores the intersections of authorship, politics, activism, and literary celebrity across historical periods, literatures, and media. It examines the forms and impact of authorial field migrations between literature and politics and the ways in which they are situated within, and shaped by, structural frameworks that include academic institutions, prize-giving bodies, publishing industries, and literary celebrity culture.

When the United States launched the War on Terror in September 2001, President George W. Bush announced that the nation was facing a “new kind of evil.” This evil, he declared, would be met by an American “crusade” that was “going to take a while.”  Bush suggested that he was declaring a new kind of war—one that would be waged on nefarious activities rooted in destructive beliefs rather than other nation-states. This pointed but ambiguous designation cast an entire region and religion, the Middle East and Islam, as perpetual enemies in a conflict with no foreseeable end. Since that point, the U.S.

Teaching Popular Culture in Intermediate Italian - ROUNDTABLE

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 1:07pm
NeMLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

In the recent years, foreign language teaching has advocated for an increasingly intermedial and interdisciplinary approach, one that enables instructors to expand course materials and integrate a wide array of popular and current cultural products. Advanced courses in Italian literature and culture can develop curricula that more liberally incorporate popular culture into teaching. Yet intermediate courses must combine cultural components with the introduction or the review of grammar structures. This session seeks contributions that address the following: What are the challenges of transitioning from grammar-based to culture-based instruction in intermediate language classes?

Teaching and Engaging Shakespeare in the Classroom (NeMLA 2020, roundtable)

Monday, September 30, 2019

More than 400 years after his death Shakespeare is still taught in western universities and throughout the world. The number of published books related to his works as well as similarly devoted scholarly conferences seem to increase yearly. This means that what and how to approach teaching Shakespeare is not stagnant as might be imagined, but rather is expanding. The number of plays attributed to Shakespeare have seen some fluctuations, but the theory and scholarly research applied to pinch and prod his works continue to produce new stimulating insights. This gives the teacher more options on what to include in their lessons and by necessity, what to exclude. It is no easy choice deciding what to focus on in the classroom.
