Thursday, October 1, 2015 - 9:18pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

As many as half of traditional undergraduate students will take an online class in their academic career before graduation. Conversations in the humanities regarding online learning typically address the challenges facing educators in transforming their face to face techniques into an online environment. This panel would seek to gather scholars who are have been leading the conversation in their home institutions about how to leverage digital learning environments to implement their best cyber pedagogy strategies. In particular, this panel asks that these scholars think of the ways that the digital archive, in its many iterations, influences and impacts virtual learning environment.

The Secret Lives of Medieval Plants II: The Leekquel

Robert Barrett / University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Premodern plant studies debuted at Kalamazoo in 2015 with the first "Secret Lives of Medieval Plants" panel. In this follow-up panel for the 42nd Annual Sewanee Medieval Colloquium on Medieval Natures (1-2 April 2016), we want to continue the work of pushing back against plant blindness and zoocentrism in analyses of medieval culture. Even as medieval people nominally operated within a Platonic-Aristotelian framework treating plants as "inanimate" and "non-living" (Matthew Hall's terms), they nonetheless recognized diverse forms of vegetable agency in practice.

Cornell Medieval Studies Student Colloquium

The graduate students of Cornell's Medieval Studies Program are pleased to announce their twenty-sixth annual Student Colloquium, which will take place on Saturday, February 20th at the A.D. White House. This year's colloquium will be focused around the concept of 'accessibility,' its connotations, and consequences in the medieval world. The Middle Ages are conventionally seen as static and hierarchical, marked by impermeability of social, geographic, and cultural boundaries. This conference seeks to foreground the dynamism and fluidity of the Middle Ages by focusing upon the points of access by which these borders were negotiated and blurred.
