Metal and Change: Metal’s Role in an Ever-Changing World

Since its inception Metal music has been in constant flux, whether in the development of new genres and subgenres to the way that it has been perceived in society over time. Metal music and culture, to survive, need to adapt to a world constantly in upheaval, whether through changing attitudes toward the music, changes in society’s structure, or even changes in what Metal music is and how it addresses issues in the world, like COVID.  But to stay Metal it must still maintain its own identity.

Translation is an essential and indispensable skill for foreign language students. Through translation, they have the opportunity not only to reflect upon and deeply understand cultural and linguistic aspects of the target language, but they are also capable of compare it with the source culture and language. It is a linguistic exercise, a creative process, as well as an opportunity for cultural immersion and a creative process. However, teaching a translation class or simply integrating translation activities into the language classroom comes with myriad pedagogical challenges for the instructor.

Interactive Fiction and Storytelling: Past, Present, and Future Directions (Roundtable)

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Abstract

ontemporary literary, computer game, and cinematic history are rife with forms of interactive fiction and storytelling. Gamebooks such as the Bantam Choose Your Own Adventure series of children’s books, video games from early text-based games like Zork to more contemporary gaming, and interactive movies of the type becoming increasingly common through streaming technologies, allow for a different kind of relationship between audiences and narratives.

These types of narratives have been read, watched, and played by adults and children alike with increased regularity since the popularization of the form in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Speaking the Unspeakable: Representing Trauma

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:39pm
Allie Wood Reichert / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

The representation of traumatic experience is a fraught conversation in literary and media studies. Cathy Caruth famously argued for the “unspeakability” of trauma; other scholars such as Naomi Mandel argue that emphasizing the limits of language can inadvertently silence, restrict, and ignore the material and corporeal existence of suffering. This session invites panelists to consider representing and witnessing trauma as acts of translation across the border of un/representability. Although our central question originates in discussions of language and texts, panelists are also encouraged to consider trauma’s appearance across disciplines and forms, such as visual culture, media, and/or performance.

Student Engagement with Theory in the Undergraduate and Dual Enrollment Classroom

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Teaching literary analysis invariably includes learning activities involving reading, deciphering, and applying theory to a text understudy. For many undergraduate and dual- or cross-enrolled students, this activity is no small feat. Rather than tossing critical theory to the wayside as "too tough," we persevere! This session seeks presentations from educators who have had varying degrees of success bringing critical theory into their humanities courses. In order to render accessible to students the complex and insightful ideas sandwiched within the academic jargon of critical theory, how are we translating the rigor into palpable bites?
