Modes of Relative Certainty

This panel will explore areas of "relative certainty" in modernism, where the supposed impossibility of knowing anything for certain meets the practical reality that things can be known well enough that readers and citizens can make use of them. In the wake of postmodernist criticism's essential disdain for certain knowledge and a general acceptance of modernists as ambiguous, ironic, enigmatical, interested in differance and lack, textual density and obscure allusions, we bring attention to the ways modernist texts celebrate positive knowledge--as contingent as that knowledge may be.

MMLA 2015: Pedagogy of Short Story (proposal submission by April 10)

updated: 
Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 8:39pm
Midwest Modern Language Association

Limitations in time and scope often prevent teachers from extending the reading list beyond the realm of canonical texts--this panel would like to explore ways to include non-canonical short stories.

In light of the 2015 MMLA Convention theme, we are especially interested in the use of science fiction in schools and colleges, but feel free to extend into further genres (in any literature/culture). Discussions on the influence of curricular and time limitations, or goals and methodologies are welcome, as are case studies of texts being taught outside of the expected/recommended reading list.

Making Sense of Beauty
The Beauty Project

Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Presentations:
We see beauty; we experience beauty; we think beautiful words, beautiful thoughts. It raises us up, comforts, inspires, thrills, takes us out of ourselves to the sublime and the sacred; it also challenges, disturbs, discomforts and brings us to the most unlikely and unexpected places of death and destruction. Some find no beauty in life, or claim they are unable to see the beautiful any more. It is many things to many people. But it is never neutral or detached and you cannot 'take it or leave it'; without fail, it elicits a response.

[UPDATE] Literature and Tourisms of the Long Nineteenth Century - due date June 3 2015

_LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory_

According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.

SAMLA Special Session: Afterlife in the African Diaspora: A Seminar/Workshop (Abstracts 5/15/15;papers 10/1/15;conf 11/13-15/15)

South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference

This seminar/workshop seeks to spark a critical conversation about how historical subjects and historical texts within the African Diaspora get re-fashioned, re-animated, and re-articulated, as well as parodied, nostalgized, and defamiliarized, to establish an afterlife for African Atlantic identities and narratives. Participants will consider how—as transnational and transhistorical sites of memory—particular performances (textual, visual, or embodied) circulate and imagine anew the meaning of prior personal and textual narratives liberated from their originary context.
