The William Dean Howells Society

The William Dean Howells Society welcomes submissions for a panel at the 2011 ALA in Boston that deal with any and all issues related to teaching Howells in the classroom. What has succeeded? What obstacles do you face? We are especially interested in presentations that offer insights into teaching Howells to undergraduate students and/or with such mega-anthologies as the Heath and Norton. Also important are presentations exploring the use of the vast resources of the media and the Internet.

[UPDATE] REMINDER - The Other French Cinema(s) of the 1930s - Conference Panel

updated: 
Sunday, September 5, 2010 - 11:36am
NeMLA

This NeMLA conference panel aims to address aspects of 1930s French cinema that have been excluded from the canonical focus on "poetic realism" and its concomitant themes, stars, and filmmakers. Studies of French cinema tend to view poetic realism as somehow emblematic of the period bookended by the arrival of synchronized sound and the outbreak of war. However, this narrow perspective belies the diversity of the cinematic experience in France during the 1930s, which included many filmmakers, stars, genres, and themes that have since been left out of critical and historical assessments of this period. Such films range from the unknown to the known (but infrequently examined), and they include financial successes along with box-office duds.
