The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 48th annual conference. The conference will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina from March 30 to April 1, 2017.
The 2017 theme is "Islands" and CEA invites papers and panels that address the idea of the island. How are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape? What respites do they provide? Are islands imagined utopias, or do they offer only barriers and isolation? Finally, is the study of composition, film, language, literature, and writing, a kind of island amidst the tempest of the current attack on the humanities?
This roundtable focuses on the perennial issue faced by so many teachers of early American literature: how to make the field interesting, stimulating, and engaging for students who might otherwise avoid it on account of its challenging language, detailed historical contexts, and often lengthy or unfamiliar content. The roundtable will discuss various strategies aimed at increasing student engagement with early American literature, and it may also address other ongoing, unresolved concerns of teachers and scholars of early American literature.
Abstracts of 150-200 words must be submitted through the NEMLA website.
Include a brief (<50 word) bio.
The instructor of record for a college course is the sole person responsible for crafting the course syllabus, creating assignments, and evaluating students, yet collaboration is present in all aspects of our teaching. We encourage our students to work with us and with one another in order to foster a sense of community. Outside of the classroom as members of a department, we have the opportunity not only to share resources with colleagues but to invite them into our classrooms in a variety of capacities, from classroom observations to guest lectures to team teaching a course.
Major and Minor Works in World Literature--a roundtable at the annual NeMLA convention
March 23-26, 2017, Baltimore
This roundtable is organized by 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. We invite world literature scholars and practitioners to take part in the meaningful dialogue on the term "world literature" and its relation to the fields of postcolonial and comparative literature, as well as to share their approaches to teaching specific courses or curriculum building. This year's theme is "major and minor works in world literature," but proposals on other topics are welcome as well.
