What is it about culture and society that creates an environment in which an athlete is able to excel or fail in his/her respective sport? Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete’s achievements? This volume seeks to explore how the world of sports is often a microcosm of the real world and the many ways in which it uniquely reflects cultural and societal issues. Abstracts are welcomed from all disciplines. The papers should either favor a historicist approach or be grounded in disocurse analysis.

REMINDER: The Fine Art of Commenting on Books that Don’t Exist: A Borgesian Experiment

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 - 1:54pm
NeMLA - Baltimore, MD, March 23-26 2017

Borges once cheekily wrote, “Writing long books is a laborious and impoverishing act of foolishness…A better procedure is to pretend that those books already exist and to offer …a commentary.” Indeed authors as varied as Borges, Lovecraft, Dick, Apollinaire, Lew, and Asimov placed completely fictional books at the center of their own literary universes. That would make a fascinating panel, but that is not this panel. Rather, what this panel seeks are academic-style works of literary theory and criticism which take as their primary texts completely fictional novels, stories, movements, authors, and films.

In Saloni Mathur’s 2007 book, India by Design: Colonial History and Cultural Display, she analyzes sites of artistic and cultural productions and institutions as they represent Indian design within colonial power structures. Reading sites as varied as museums and colonial postcards contrapuntally, Mathur proposes that the arts’, crafts, and aesthetics were significant not only in a conscious effort to control the visual display of culture and as a set of aesthetic traditions, but also how they signfied dynamic shifts in imperial contacts. Work by scholars such as Mathur, Karen Fiss, S.

Based on its success at the 2016 AAIS conference, this roundtable will seek to explore again innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, culture, or literature. Of particular – but not exclusive – interest are methods that utilize digital resources (video games, websites, computer programs). What resources and genres make the most effective teaching tools? Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural and literary concepts can best be illustrated?
