_Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition, and Culture_

The journal Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition, and Culture is sponsoring two roundtable discussions in celebration of the Spring 2013 release of a special issue of the journal titled "Teaching Medieval Literature off the Grid," edited by Gina Brandolino and Nathanial B. Smith. Extending the conversation begun in the special issue on incorporating noncanonical medieval literature in the classroom, the sessions proposed here will explore pedagogy and canonicity in the context in which we, as teachers, deal with it most often and most dramatically: the early British literary survey course. Each session will have 7 panelists, each with 8-10 minute papers and time for discussion.

Friday, July 13, 2012 - 6:01pm
Queen Elizabeth I Society

Our panel in 2013 will focus on representations of Elizabeth I in the classic and more recent film narratives. In the last decade alone, the image of Elizabeth I on film has ranged from Dame Judi Dench's aged but energetic queen to Cate Blanchett's preternaturally youthful 55 year old monarch to the adolescent princess played by Laoise Murray on _The Tudors_. This panel will seek to explore the general trajectories of representing Elizabeth I on screen as well as identify and analyze the developments, continuities, and significance of these representations in the 21st century.

This session is sponsored by Queen Elizabeth I Society.

Network Anxieties: Reading the Contemporary Novel (NEMLA panel, March 21-24, BOSTON)

Jackie O'Dell

Since the early 1990's, the internet has increasingly influenced how cultural texts are read and disseminated. This media shift has transformed long-held notions of publicness, authority, and the archive. For media scholar Lisa Gitelman, media history is about nothing less than the 'experience of meaning' (18), an experience that the web has changed by 'eschew[ing] the punctual logic of more conventional public discourse' (144). This panel enters ongoing debates about the internet's influence on literature, critics, and their publics, exploring how new media's social network shapes fiction and the critical reading practices that make sense of it.

1st Global Conference
Body Horror: Contagion, Mutation, Transformation

Monday 11th February – Wednesday 13th February 2013
Sydney, Australia

Call for Presentation:

The body. My body. This thing which is with me all day, every day, from my birth to my death. This flesh which is me. My intimate life-long friend.

In our day-to-day living we have no reason to question or to doubt our bodies. Until the bond of trust is shaken or broken. Something happens. To my body. Something inside: going wrong. A betrayal: a turning against: an unwelcome and unwanted change. From which there is no escape, no running away, nowhere to hide. This is happening to me.
