Vol. 4 Issue 2 (June 2017)

Michael Kula, University of Washington, Tacoma

 

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

All Hail the Queen: Teaching Agatha Christie Beyond the Mystery Story

            In recent years, texts once dismissed as lowbrow (such as Stoker’s Dracula and Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories) have become staples in the university classroom. Despite worldwide fame as the Queen of Mystery, Agatha Christie too often appears as only a generic example of classic detective fiction.

            This is at odds with a recent surge of critical interest, beginning, perhaps, with Pierre Bayard’s work on The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. A recent edition of Clues (Vol. 34, No. 1) highlights current Christie scholarship and calls for irreverent re-readings, “teasing out the genuinely experimental and decidedly nonpatterned aspects of Christie’s writing” (Rolls and Guldal 8).

NeMLA​( Northeast Modern Language Association​)​​ 48th Annual Convention  ​March 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland, Session title: 'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century As Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre reminds us with her exclamation, “Reader, I married him!,” writers of fiction in the nineteenth century were very aware of their readership with texts. In the increasingly literate century, readers were savvy consumers, rapt fans, and scathing critics. They read penny papers, novels, and genre specific magazines. They read at home, in libraries, and on trains.

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?
