In the twentieth century, literary criticism took a turn from philology and historical approaches toward analyzing small, suggestive passages, using them as a microcosm that offered a fertile glimpse into the larger textual expanses of the text.  In the Soviet Union, this effort came to be denominated as Russian formalism; in France, the explication de texte; in the Anglophone world, the New Criticism practice of “close reading.”  In recent decades, this approach has fallen out of fashion, as politically motivated theoretical and critical modalities have become operative (cultural studies, post-colonialism, queer theory, etc.)  While these recent efforts surely constitute an enlargement of our knowledge and an advancement of our critical protocol

This roundtable endeavors to assess the influence of Donald Trump’s 2016 election on literature in the US and around the world.   Three avenues of inquiry will be featured. First, do the results of the 2016 election in the US clearly influence literature in the US or worldwide?   If so, what are the main traits of this influence?  Second, are there commonalities between writing in the US and writing elsewhere following the election?  Finally, focusing on non-US writing, are there perspectives or themes that are not at all present in US writing?  Is there a global voice after Trump’s election that does not exist in the United States?

· What contributions can teachers and researchers in comparative literature make to creative curriculum develop today?

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable explores three questions concerning the teaching of disability literature: Is there an ideal curriculum or canon of readings concerned disabled people? Are there cultural differences from country/region to country/region in either the representation or teaching of disability literature? Do experienced teachers of disability literature have lessons learned to share with their NeMLA colleagues?

 

As a comparative literature roundtable, we want to be as inconclusive as possible, looking at English and non-English authors, curricula, and approaches. The language of instruction in this roundtable but the chair will co-ordinate hands-outs and translations.
