Comparative Media Panel at 2016 PAMLA

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2016

In keeping with this year’s broad PAMLA conference theme, “Archives, Libraries, Properties,” the Comparative Media panel seeks submissions for 15-20 minute presentations dealing with the interrelationships between various media forms and/as archives, libraries, and properties. The panel welcomes presentations that define the panel’s key terms – archives, libraries, properties, and media – broadly, and use them in productive tension and collaboration with one another. Presentations that seek to creatively disrupt the traditional media forms of conference presentations – thinking the conference itself as a kind of library or archive of performed academic properties – will be particularly welcome.

'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century

NeMLA​( Northeast Modern Language Association​)​​ 48th Annual Convention  ​March 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland, Session title: 'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century As Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre reminds us with her exclamation, “Reader, I married him!,” writers of fiction in the nineteenth century were very aware of their readership with texts. In the increasingly literate century, readers were savvy consumers, rapt fans, and scathing critics. They read penny papers, novels, and genre specific magazines. They read at home, in libraries, and on trains.

Literature and the First Year Experience

As more upper-division literature courses disappear from college catalogues and fewer students choose to major in the humanities, the general education curriculum—and the first-year experience even more specifically—remain one of the few opportunities for university professors to use literary texts to teach critical thinking and analysis, both in terms of an acquired academic skill and as a venue for social and political activism. Yet, the freshman year of college is also a time when our students have not yet refined the very skills that can help them meaningfully participate in these academic and social dialogues as their liberal arts professors intend.

Running Wild: Library Archives, Faculty Engagement, and the Artist Book

Academic archives and special collections are treasure troves for student engagement. These repositories contain tactile examples of institutional history that are instrumental for student research and inspirational for student creativity. Increasingly teaching faculty are collaborating with archivists and librarians in the promotion and use of these unique treasures. From these materials, students draw inspiration, often transforming the notion of what constitutes a book. Archives in turn may curate these works, documenting student research and properties for future generations. We invite presentations of work derived from or inspired by archival holdings and present strategies for encouraging similar artistic expression and curation.

 

Is There A Working Class In This Literature Class?

While labor economics and political theory regularly engage the phenomenon of class conflict, literary study often glosses over it. This roundtable seeks to resuscitate the vexed question of class-bias in the academy, as reflected in the absence of or meager attention given to literary representations of working class consciousness. Papers drawing from any literary chronology and any genres are welcome.  The purpose of this roundtable is  first to explore the marginalization of working class life but then to  propose a remedy. How can literary studies acquire cross-class agency, recognizing  working class subjectivity within a traditional literary canon?  This will be the roundtable's culminating question for presenters and attendees.

An August Occasion: National Conference on the Life and Legacy of August Wilson

updated: 
Monday, July 18, 2016 - 9:34am
Dr. Sandra G. Shannon/ August Wilson Society of Howard University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 8, 2016

The onset of autumn is a solemn reminder that the world lost August Wilson in October 2005.  It is also the harvest season--a time for taking stock of his life's work and for promoting new ways of analyzing, teaching, discussing, researching, and, ultimately, safeguarding the rich legacy that he bequeathed to us.

This much-anticipated AUGUST OCCASION and celebration, which also marks the August Wilson Society's 10th Anniversary, will feature an array of panels, roundtables, workshops, creative works, and performance pieces that test new theories and that introduce novel approaches to Wilson's art, his activism, and yet-undiscovered meaning in his ten-play American Century Cycle.
