Stephanie A. V. G. Kamath

The forthcoming publication of the //Encylopedia of Medieval Pilgrimage//
(Brill, 2008) and of the first collection of essays with a particular
focus on the three pilgrimage allegories of Guillaume de Digulleville [or
Deguileville] (Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2008) makes the spring
of 2009 the ideal moment to bring together new explorations of
Digulleville’s visionary trilogy in its fullest context. These
fourteenth-century allegories, remarkable for their imitation of
the //Roman de la rose// along with more traditional Cistercian sources,
were incredibly popular during the late Middle Ages, surviving in more
than 80 manuscripts today, and the strong visual interest of the trilogy

Although most of us would be loathe to let students follow Allen Ginsberg's
Zen-based exhortation, "First thought, best thought!" and write only first
drafts, many Zen-based techniques have, nevertheless, crept into writing
and public speaking classrooms with great success. This panel will explore
how panelists and participants have used non-religious meditative or yogic
techniques for pedagogical purposes. All approaches are
welcome--theoretical, pedagogical, or creative. Dissent especially encouraged!

Deadline Extended to May 6th!

Tutoring writing and teaching writing are two very different
undertakings.
Writing Centers offer a very individualized learning environment that is
difficult to emulate in a classroom setting. At the same time, the goals
that one sets for an entire class are vastly different thant the goals
for
a tutoring session. For those of us expereinced in both worlds, these
differences can be both troublesome and inspiring.
I am seeking papers/presentations that address any of the following
topics:

>From cameo appearances in films, to drawing on Western and Bollywood
cinema as both inspiration for his fictional narratives and as subject of
his cultural criticism, Salman Rushdie has always been involved in
cinema. Papers are invited for an anthology tentatively entitled “Salman
Rushdie and Cinema” that seeks to shed light on Rushdie’s work and its
intersection with film as text and as culture industry. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:
- Rushdie as actor (e.g. Then She Found Me, Bridget Jones’s Diary,
Peter’s Friends;
- Rushdie’s novels as cinematic texts;
- Rushdie’s characters as film actors (e.g. Gibreel Farishta as a

CFP: [Postcolonial] MMLA Panel "Multicultural Literature in the Classroom"

Alpana Sharma

Stuart Hall’s turn to the visual arts to address the rich “multicultural
question” of how European societies can begin to reconcile “equality and
difference” is the starting point of this session. Teachers of
multicultural literature often count on visual texts (feature films,
documentaries, photographs, illustrations, and so on) to make other
cultures come to life for American students. These artifacts do the
cultural work of rendering otherness visible, at once compelling and
estranging, as they facilitate and problematize understanding of the
worlds in which they are embedded. How do multiculturalists and
postcolonialists teach visual texts of otherness? What are the

Panel: Modern Emergencies
 
This panel seeks papers that theorize any textual inscription of
emergency in the modern moment, but is most especially interested in
projects that examine how emergencies activate state-based, communal, or
individual violence that re-defines the limits of the modern nation.
Papers should stress the mediation of violent emergence and the emergency
moment via literature, film, photography, painting, journalism, or
performance. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) the
following questions: What are modernism’s emergencies and how do we
understand their importance to thinking “the modern” in a cosmopolitan,
