Not Just Kidding Around: On Teaching Children’s Media (SCMS 2018)

**CFP for the Society of Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) 2018 Conference in Toronto**

In an academic setting, weighty or dramatic “adult” films are generally met with intellectual curiosity by students, or at least an acknowledgement that they are “worthy” of consideration. Genre films like horror or action are met with more resistance, but generally students are willing to admit they have some sort of ideological investments. Films aimed at children, however, are often dismissed as just entertainment. Surely we may analyze Bicycle Thieves, but Home Alone? Yes to Goodfellas, no to Goonies.

Teaching Anime and Manga

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This session proposes to look at what has been a persistent but under-represented section of comics studies: manga (Japanese comics), and associated with it, anime (Japanese animation). Access to anime and manga is pervasive: one distributor, CrunchyRoll, has one million yearly paying subscribers, providing electronic access to 50 manga titles translated into English, and 800 anime titles. In partnership with United States distributors such as Viz and Funimation, the vast majority of those anime titles are dubbed into English, making language much less of a barrier of access for teachers–as well as students.

Facebook, Twitter and other Social Media: How they can be Used for Academic Purposes

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:39pm
Stella Mattioli - University of Virginia
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable analyzes the possibilities of including social media in the foreign language classroom (with a focus on Italian), in order to create activities that might be appealing to the students’ interest in using new technologies. Different language instructors are using Facebook and Twitter (or other social media platforms) in the classroom, in order to increase the participation of their students or to design new assignments. This contributes to the creation of new spaces, outside of class, where the students can practice at their own pace, using tools with which they are very familiar, and with minimal supervision from the instructor when necessary. 

New Approaches to Teaching Fitzgerald

Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:28pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This pedagogical roundtable welcomes proposals that offer innovations for teaching Fitzgerald's many works. How does his literature speak to the Jazz Age and major moments in United States and global history? How can works such as The Great Gatsby clarify studies of ecology, urban environments, photography, and other topics? Proposals that consider the author’s lesser researched works are encouraged.

Submit 300-word abstracts by September 30th with a free account at https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/17003.

Approaches to Teaching Medieval Drama, Revisited (Session of Papers)

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:29pm
Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

Twenty-seven years ago, Approaches to Teaching Medieval English Drama, edited by Richard K. Emmerson, presented possibilities for engaging students in the literary, theoretical, historical, and performative explorations of the field. Scholarship in the intervening decades has expanded these approaches and introduced new ones. Manuscript digitization, 3-D modeling of medieval cities, and online databases provide research and instructional opportunities far beyond those available in 1990. Research on Teaching and Learning and rhetorical pedagogies have demonstrated the importance of educational research and strong theoretical approaches. The panel welcomes theoretical and practical discussions of teaching all pre-modern drama.
