Roundtable: Meeting the Evolving Needs of the Community College Professor in NeMLA

This roundtable invites faculty at community colleges, junior colleges, vocational colleges and other two-year institutions to discuss the challenges and rewards that come with attending and presenting at academic conferences. With a focus on NeMLA itself, we would like to hear how NeMLA is doing in this regard: what successes or frustrations have you experienced here? What will you do differently or hope to do similarly in future? The goal of this roundtable will be to begin a conversation about these issues, and perhaps leave with concrete goals for the CAITY Caucus to pursue in supporting faculty from two year institutions within NeMLA.

Pedagogies and Challenges: Teaching Asian America Through Graphic Narratives (Roundtable)

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Over the past few years, graphic narratives as a form of cultural expression have gained positive reception in literary circles, but how does this genre serve the purpose for teaching about race in America? While teaching about race requires “viewing,” using graphic narratives can effectively educate students about race that sometimes traditional prose narratives cannot. However, some argue whether visual representations, like films and mass media, can potentially perpetuate racial stereotypes. Do graphic narratives reinforce or disrupt racial stereotypes? How do we adopt this genre to advance our teaching and promote students’ understanding of Asian America?

Pre- or Post-? Periodization Problems in American Literary Study

Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel for NEMLA 2020 (Boston) examines the scholarly, pedagogical, and professional problems posed by current chronological demarcations of “early” and “modern” American literature and seeks to propose viable alternative chronological models. The specific years covered by the traditional undergraduate American literary survey have a lasting impact on the American public’s sense of literary history, the dissertation topics of graduate students, the canonical visibility of authors who span chronological margins, the specific texts that receive attention in an author’s oeuvre, the networking of scholars, the availability of grant money, the publication contracts of major presses, and the creation of tenure-track positions.

51st Northeast Modern Language Association Convention

March 5-8, 2020

Boston, MA

This lightning roundtable seeks to amplify experiences of emerging women, trans, and non-binary scholars from a range of backgrounds across graduate, contingent, and junior institutional stature as they navigate careers in the academy. Participants will offer 3-5 minute “lightning presentations” that (a) share experience, (b) offer advice, and (c) demand change across micro and macro structures of the academy. Following the presentations will be ample time for open discussion between the participants and audience members.
