NeMLA 2020: The Classical Classroom: Learning and Literature in Antiquity and Beyond

The English word “school” derives from the Greek word scholia, which may also be translated as “leisure.” It is perhaps because of this association between school and leisure that education in Greece and Rome was not confined to the schoolroom but was present in all aspects of Classical life, including its literature. The earliest examples of Greek literature, the poetry of Homer and Hesiod, were written not only to entertain but to teach, while the audiences of Classical theatre were directed to learn from the plays that they watched. Subsequent Greco-Roman literary works frequently emphasized the educational progress of their characters.

   In our modern world, which some have argued to be disjointed while immersing itself ever deeper in crisis, the turning back towards “the olden days” and the ensuing nostalgia constitute a noticeable phenomenon, both individually (the memory of biography) and collectively (the memory of History). Another important – and seemingly also quite noticeable – phenomenon  is the longing for something vague, indefinite or never existent.

The Writer's Vice: Alcohol and the American Writer, 1940-70

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 11:48am
Mark Noon / NEMLA Conference 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel seeks papers addressing the impact of alcohol on American authors from 1940 to 1970. Is it true, as Susan Cheever has argued, that being a writer during this period "almost always meant getting drunk"? The panel will work to separate the myths from the reality regarding the use of alcohol among writers of the period. It will also assess the impact of alcohol on the quality of writing and its impact on the talent of writers.
