Writing Beyond the Language Requirement 

Recently, scholars have recognized that “L2 writing is not only an ability to acquire, teach, and assess—as is conventionally assumed—but L2 writing is also a means, context, and basis for learning, both of language and of writing” (Manchón, 2011, x). That is, second language writing involves both learning to write and writing to learn. What does this mean for our curricula?

European Film and Television: Crisis Narratives and Narratives in Crisis (edited volume)

Call For Papers

In the introduction to his European Cinema collection of essays, Thomas Elsaesser (2005) firmly admits that “Any book about European cinema should start with the statement that there is no such thing as European cinema, and that yes, European cinema exists, and has existed since the beginning of cinema a little more than a hundred years ago.” Adopting Elsaesser’s thesis, we also argue that the question of what constitutes “European Cinema” is impossible to answer but at the same time a question with a variety of correct answers.

This panel focuses on the use of American Indian Literary Nationalism as a framework for reading texts by Native authors. We will examine the ways in which AILN has been employed and has created new spaces for interpretations of Native literature.  Since the 2006 publication of the groundbreaking American Indian Literary Nationalism, scholars in the field of Native American Literature are re-evaluating the ways in which texts by Native authors are read. As well, subsequent works analyzing Native literatures using the methods of AILN have been instrumental in creating new spaces for interpretation. This panel focuses on the influence of AILN and its contributions specifically to the field of Native American Literature.

In a 2005 article for The New York Times, Canadian-Russian author and American academic Michael Ignatieff raised a provocative question: "Who Are Americans to Think That Democracy Is Theirs to Spread?" Surveying a range of critical responses to the US war in the Middle East, such as the idea that US involvement is economically self-serving, or that it facilitates the rise of increasingly repressive regimes, Ignatieff argues that the US has been ineffective, if not oppositional, in its stated aims of promoting democracy worldwide. This MELUS panel builds on SAMLA 88's theme of "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It" and perspectives like Ignatieff's to ask how multi-ethnic American writers position the US amidst the political unrest of their birth nation.
