Teaching Terrorism-- Roundtable at NeMLA 2018

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:53pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Call for papers for a roundtable at the 2018 NeMLA conference in Pittsburgh, April 12-15: https://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/session.html

This roundtable will examine teaching methods and strategies for addressing the fiction of terrorism in the contemporary literature classroom. With a focus on teaching after 9/11, and in a moment fraught with tensions about politics and secondary education (see, for example, the “Professor Watchlist”), this roundtable will also address the ways faculty can frame their classes—not only for the students they teach, but for a general public concerned with the politics of college and university faculty.
