CFP: Iconic Images in Media for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Monday, June 26, 2017

Our daily lives are saturated with images, but among the mundane are the few—like the drowned Syrian refugee child—that stand out and become icons of some bigger issue in society. It is not only their stories that are important to analyze, but also the effect these images have on the population. No longer are we dependent on those with professional equipment and experience to show us images and stories from half a world away. Pictures taken by the people and of the people have a way of refocusing hearts and minds away from war/conflict/political agenda and to the lives of the individuals affected. This session will focus on these kinds of images as text and analyze their stories, context, and effect in our society.

Depicting the Undepictable in German Comics and Graphic Novels

The recent wave of scholarly interest in comics and graphic novels has arrived in German Studies. Some of the most interesting work comments on the ways comic artists explore the formal, that is, visual means of their medium including aspects such as panel shapes, page design, and coloring. A topic that has not yet been at the center of scholarly attention lies at the very intersection between the visual and the non-visual. This panel looks at both the potency and limitations of the medium by analyzing how artists from the German-speaking world represent physical and mental phenomena that, by definition, go beyond the capacities of a visual medium. The panel invites papers which address, for example, the following questions:

 

Immersive Identities: Measuring the Reality of Virtual Spaces

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:50pm
NEMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

This panel engages a debate surrounding virtual reality and immersive story telling: do subjects project their real selves into virtual worlds, or do they use them to experience alternative identities?

By closing experiential gaps between the virtual and corporal, immersive virtual spaces can be experienced as real. Accordingly, virtual reality and immersive story telling can encourage subjects to express their real social behaviors, emotions, or morals. Similarly, subjects often experience virtual worlds in this manner, despite the presence of fictive or fictional elements.

Roundtable 

In the 21st century classroom, whether students learn how to develop a variety of intellectual perspectives, acquire skills to manage social and civic responsibilities, or refine professional tools for their future career, diversity is an ever-present imperative. In order to support diversity in all its forms, the language curriculum should engage with LGBT issues in ways that reflect current social changes and issues and that question heterosexist norms and assumptions.
