114th Annual PAMLA Conference - Pasadena, California

Friday, November 11 - Sunday, November 13, 2016

Extended deadline: July 1, 2016

 

Panel: “Drama and Society”

Drama has long served as a communal mirror to society, reflecting its habits, aesthetics, politics and cultural norms. This panel seeks to explore the ways in which drama reveals its intricate relationship to society; how does drama (through both text and performance) support, embody and critique the world in which it was created?

As more upper-division literature courses disappear from college catalogues and fewer students choose to major in the humanities, the general education curriculum—and the first-year experience even more specifically—remain one of the few opportunities for university professors to use literary texts to teach critical thinking and analysis, both in terms of an acquired academic skill and as a venue for social and political activism. Yet, the freshman year of college is also a time when our students have not yet refined the very skills that can help them meaningfully participate in these academic and social dialogues as their liberal arts professors intend.

In Art As Experience, John Dewey writes: “When an art product once attains classic status, it somehow becomes isolated from the human conditions under which it was brought into being and from the human consequences it engenders in actual life-experience.” Dewey also notes that the growth of capitalism “has been a powerful influence in the development of the museum as the proper home for works of art, and in the promotion of the idea that they are apart from the common life."

NeMLA Annual Convention – Baltimore, MD to be held March 23-26, 2017 

The purpose of this roundtable is to offer and exchange perspectives on how mindfulness and contemplative pedagogy can facilitate student learning and engagement in First-Year English courses. How can First-Year English faculty (teaching composition or literature-based writing courses) use contemplative and mindfulness practices (e.g. meditation; journaling; yoga; experiences in nature) to enhance student engagement, writing, critical thinking, creativity, risk-taking, literary understanding, and/or other learning?

This area of the 2016 Film & History conference, Gods & Heretics, examines notions of the monstrous, monstrosity, and the supernatural as they relate to on-screen representations, thematic inferences, narrative structures, or even production practices throughout the history of filmmaking. How do we better understand the implications of these histories, patterns, or aberrations? What is being signified or challenged, made visible or concealed, through our constructions of the monstrous?

25 November 2016 | Plymouth University | Keynote: Dr Jody Patterson (Plymouth University)

CfP deadline 1 August 2016

Where do we see art? What impact do exhibition spaces have on how an artwork is received? Who is art created for? Who owns public art? New Voices 2016 encourages delegates to consider art outside of conventional exhibition spaces and to engage in a discussion over the function of art in the public, digital, domestic, religious, and secular spheres.
