The Teaching of Literature across Two-Year and Four-Year Colleges: Comparative Perspectives @ACLA, Mar 17-20, 2016, Cambridge MA

updated: 
Friday, September 18, 2015 - 1:41pm
American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2016

Organizer: Dominique Zino, LaGuardia Community College (CUNY)

This seminar seeks to bring into conversation a range of faculty – tenured and tenure-track professors, adjunct lecturers, and graduate students – teaching at two-year and four-year institutions.

We will aim to discuss the following pedagogical questions: What ways of reading, writing, and thinking should students be introduced to in their first two years of college, especially if they plan to study literature at a four-year college or university? What do we value most as teachers of literature? What concepts, skills, or texts do we find most fundamental to helping students to read literature deeply and to apply it to other realms of learning?

Misremembering

Ameer Sohrawardy, Rutgers University

This is a collection of essays that will revolve around the idea of misremembering in literature. A diversity of approaches are welcome (eg: historicist, cognitive science, theories of temporality, narrative theory, animal studies.)

Several questions will guide the collection: What does it mean to 'misremember'? What does the 'mis' of 'misremembering' refer to? Something 'not remembered'? Something re-membered differently than the 'original' memory? What are the ontologies of misremembering?
