William Magrino / Northeast Modern Language Association

The classroom practices of composition studies, known for decades as a staid facet of undergraduate pedagogy, has been opened up due to opportunities afforded by the Internet. Virtual spaces have allowed composition instructors to reimagine the parameters of our learning spaces. Workshopping, peer editing, and revision, among other student writing strategies, have seen new potential as ambitious instructors work toward successfully mediating the line between the brick-and-mortar classroom and the Web. Despite these promises, many composition instructors are still challenged by the implementation of these contemporary technologies into their curriculum in a pedagogically sound way.

Ashley Bender / American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

This panel seeks papers that consider the role of objects in the production and study of Restoration and eighteenth-century drama. How might a consideration of the physical and material conditions of performance shed light on the texts through which we so often engage with the drama? What do textual artifacts reveal about production practices or even specific performances? Please send 300-word abstracts.

Deadline extended to September 20, 2015.

[UPDATE] ACLA 2016: Philip Roth's Trans-disciplinary Translation: Psychoanalysis, Ethics, and Philosophy of Mind (due 09/23)

Maren Scheurer / Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, Germany

When Horace Engdahl, permanent secretary of the Nobel prize jury, proclaimed in 2008 that "The US is too isolated, too insular. They … don't really participate in the big dialogue of literature," many understood Engdahl to be chastising Philip Roth in particular, a leading contender in Nobel Prize discussions, who, despite his international appeal, has been perennially overlooked by the prize jury. To the contrary, translations of Roth's work are available in languages as diverse as Mandarin, Romanian, and Arabic, to name only a few. In his novels, Roth dialogues with such artists as Shakespeare, Chekhov, Edna O'Brien, Milan Kundera, El Greco and Jasper Johns. However, Roth's relevance for comparative studies is not limited to these exchanges.
