This panel aims to use the framework of oceanic studies to interrogate Victorian sea fiction. We welcome work on nineteenth-century writers across the Anglophone world, though could be open to works in other languages. We are particularly looking for works that do not fall into traditional nationalist canons of literature or works that epitomize transnational networks of culture, empire, and economics.

Regarding an ongoing research project at Columbia University, Barnard student Sabrina Singer reflected that when she walks around the campus, now, she wonders: “What else is history going to forget?”[i] The research Singer and her colleagues are doing looks at the historical ties between the institution now educating them and the historical institution of slavery. We were prompted to similar reflections having visited Yale’s Peabody Museum and an exhibit there of Elihu Yale’s gemstones collection. Included in the display is a painting of Yale: he is pictured with a large unfinished diamond ring on his finger, symbolizing Britain’s dominance over India.

The 49th NeMLA Annual Convention
April 12-15, 2018 - Pittsburgh, PA

As capital flows freely across national borders, the sovereign state demarcates strict boundaries for people. Capitalism forges global connections with international solidarity organized around wealth. Yet as Foucault has argued, intranational spaces are increasingly heavily policed in the name of homeland security, giving rise to the security state and technologies of surveillance.

The last few decades have witnessed a growing interest in the benefits of linking the learning of a foreign language to the study of its literature. In fact, the emphasis on working with culturally authentic texts is one of the central claims for curriculum reform in EFL/ESL teaching nowadays. Moreover, the latest developments in text-based teaching point to a curriculum in which language, culture, and literature are taught as a continuum. 

Nevertheless, the incorporation of literary texts into the language curriculum is not easy to tackle. Many linguists refer to literary content as extremely demanding for both teachers and students. Not surprisingly, many teachers tend to avoid using literary texts for this reason.
