In the “Preface by the Translator” that Margaret Fuller penned for her translation of Goethe’s Tasso, she states: “There are difficulties attending the translation of German works into English which might baffle one much more skillful in the use of the latter than myself. A great variety of compound words enable the German writer to give a degree of precision and delicacy of shading to his expressions nearly impracticable with the terse, the dignified, but by no means flexible English idiom” (Art, Literature and the Drama, p. 355).

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally? Have you focused on place in courses on Latinx, African American, Native American, or queer studies? What design choices did you make when creating your syllabus? If you were to redesign the documents for this course, what would you change?

I invite participants for a poster session in document design for place-based studies to take place at the 49th annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) in East Lansing, Michigan, on May 16-18, 2019.
