Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis

Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis is a forthcoming peer-reviewed, online, open-access scholarly journal established by the Ohio University English department. Published twice a year, the journal invites literary scholarship from all levels of academics (graduate, post graduate, and independent). We are particularly interested in original works of literary criticism and analysis for the bi-annual issues as well as textual responses and video media for an online environment.

MMLA 2015: Pedagogy of Short Story (proposal submission by April 10)

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 8:39pm
Midwest Modern Language Association

Limitations in time and scope often prevent teachers from extending the reading list beyond the realm of canonical texts--this panel would like to explore ways to include non-canonical short stories.

In light of the 2015 MMLA Convention theme, we are especially interested in the use of science fiction in schools and colleges, but feel free to extend into further genres (in any literature/culture). Discussions on the influence of curricular and time limitations, or goals and methodologies are welcome, as are case studies of texts being taught outside of the expected/recommended reading list.

_LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory_

According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
