In our binge-mode culture, TV has become students’ preferred access point to critical thinking. Most college students do not see themselves in canonical texts or feel confident with analysis. Yet, students are typically employing skills of argumentation an analysis in dissecting shows on television, Netflix, and/or Hulu. Even though intellectual discussions, like the ethics around NBC’s The Good Place, occur on podcasts and cultural criticisms online, instructors often cast these opportunities aside as less than tertiary. However, these “alternative” discourse spaces often mirror the level of engagement instructors want to see in the argumentative papers their students write for composition and literature-focused classes.

The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

RuPaul’s Drag Race has steadily increased its audience share and jumpstarted the careers of dozens of drag performers. It’s not simply a contest to be declared “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” but a platform for each queen to shape their brand, promote different forms drag, and start conversations on a number of cultural questions (i.e. gender, race, and identity). This panel seeks paper that considers how the show has educated audiences on drag, beauty, race, and gender through its successes and failures.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Evolving Women in Film

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 11:01am
Northeast MLA 2019 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Open discussion of how women are portrayed in film should examine how those portrayals evolve over time to reflect changing cultural values. Women have fulfilled roles that exhibit their historically subservient or sexualized positions in society, among others. Over the decades the gender identity of women has fluctuated to include powerful women, emotionally strong women, lesbian women, and even neurologically atypical women. These identities reflect the expanding possibilities that society recognizes as more likely and more mainstream.

The Emotional Life of Horror Films (SCMS panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
University of California, Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

For all the research that has been conducted into the ideological underpinnings of horror, ideology is not ultimately constitutive of the genre. Emotions are, as producers and fans well know. Yet there has been scant scholarly attention given to emotions (or affects) as such in the genre. Whether the defining generic emotion is taken to be art-horror (Carroll), a feeling of threat (Aldana Reyes), or a looser family of reactions like fear and suspense and disgust (Schneider), there is no escaping emotions.

Sovereignty and Early Modern Literary Representation

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 10:59am
North Eastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The nature of sovereignty and its related concerns were central for political theorists of the early modern period (Renaissance). These questions continued to circulate in succeeding centuries, and returned with particular significance in the late 20th and 21st centuries, especially among continental political philosophers. This seminar will engage with questions surrounding sovereignty in both early modern literary texts as they relate to debates about sovereignty in their own time and/or in the present.

Renaissance Society of America (RSA) 2019 - Toronto

Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.
