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?

Literature and the First Year Experience

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.

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?

From the earliest traces of etchings on stone tablets to the emergence of Kindles and e-readers in contemporary society, humans have invented platforms for the creation and dissemination of text. Implicit in each textual object are the figures of the reader and writer and their differing engagement with the work. But what does it mean to be a reader or a writer, and how does each role play a part in the shaping of a text?

The interrogation of wide-ranging labor and political-economic issues has long provided cultural and literary studies with a foundational motive. Not much has been said about maintenance—at least not directly. Against modernity’s celebration of progress, development and productivity, and against neoliberal incantations of innovation and creative destruction, attending to maintenance reveals a devalorized and oft-hidden form of labor, one on which productivity happens to depend. And, against that most fundamental drive in all forms of capitalism—growth—maintenance may offer a workable alternative.
