UPDATE: World & Comparative Literature in an Anti-Humanities Age – Northeast Modern Language Association

Is World Literature the new, upgraded version of Comparative Literature (Comp Lit 2.0) or rather an attenuated, impoverished version of the latter? What unites us, and what divides us, especially considering that many World Lit faculty are drawn from Comp Lit backgrounds?  How do we, practitioners in these fields, rethink these disciplines for the era when humanities as such are under constant attack? In this session, we hope to discuss our shared ground and our shared challenges.  This roundtable is organized by the NeMLA World Literature Working Group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of World  Literature.

The aim of this panel is to explore the potential of project-based teaching and learning as a way of increasing students’ proficiency and sensitivity to language and culture. More specifically, it proposes to reflect on the ways in which individual and group projects (such as research projects, translations, interviews, events programming, etc.) can help students obtain a better understanding of French language and society by developing their translingual and transcultural skills.

The Importance of Teaching Genre in the ELLs' Classrooms

Instructing English language learners (ELLs) in composition is a topic that has been widely debated in recent years. Finding ways for teaching ELL students is almost marginalized, though the number of ELL students is growing too fast in the USA institutions. Some scholars and texts suggest emphasis on certain concepts, such as grammar, to better teach writing to ELLs. All studies proved that grammar is not the only factor that can improve the ELL’s writing because there is still disempowerment in ELL writing. This disempowerment comes from treating language as the only barrier to ELL students, when in fact genre serves as an equally challenging barrier, if not more so.
