CALL FOR CHAPTERS: UNDERWORLD: INVESTIGATING CRIME FILMS FROM TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES We are seeking chapters for an edited volume tentatively titled Underworld: Investigating Crime Films from Transnational Perspectives. With its thrilling subject matter and commentary on the consequences of urban and industrial modernization, the crime film holds an abiding fascination for filmmakers and audiences. While the historical lineage of many crime films can be traced to the international popularity of American and British detective novels in the 19th and early 20th century, this book project aims to expand the field of research of crime films into a transnational study of the genre.

North East Modern Language Association's 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020
Boston, Massachusetts

 

Faculty learning communities offer an environment in which normally isolated spaces, places, and disciplinary-specific language and cultures can interact to produce new insights into members’ professional identity and pedagogy while simultaneously enriching a college’s broader community of ideas. The structure of such groups also has the benefit of being far more flexible than formal or ad hoc committees, which are often constrained by end-oriented goals, college bylaws, and other such protocols.
