16444. Pedagogy and Poetry Audio: DH Approaches to Teaching Recorded Poetry/Archives (Panel)
Cultural Studies and Media Studies / Interdisciplinary Humanities
Chair: Kenneth Sherwood (Indiana University of Pennsylvania)
The "Pedagogy and Poetry Audio" panel seeks to explore the implications of increased access to poetry audio which is provided by open, digital archives that allow the teaching of print texts alongside the phonotexts or recordings documenting situated, spoken-word performances. Contributions ranging from discussions of specific classroom practices (close-listening, creative remixing, etc.) to theorizations and contexualizations in terms of Ethnopoetics, Sound Studies, and Digital Humanities are welcome.
Please consider submitting an abstract for the proposed session below to be held at the NeMLA Convention in Baltimore, March 23-26, 2017.
The session aims to reimagine the fundamental pedagogical role of foreign language and culture courses in the college curriculum in the era of globalization. The interdisciplinary approach should be based on content to create opportunities to reflect on culture and cultural values essentially intrinsic in language and language learning.
The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” EXTENDED Submission deadline: November 11, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.

Creative writing found a home in universities in the United States in the early part of the twentieth century and grew in popularity in the postwar era. Hundreds of creative writing programs now exist across the nation, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as writers earn any one of a number of degrees: BAs, BFAs, MAs, MFAs, and Ph.Ds.

Workshop to be held 25-27 May in Bloomington Indiana
John Lynch, University of Cincinnati
Lisa DeTora, Hofstra University
In light of recent scholarship on the cultural history of American creative writing programs, such as Mark McGurl's The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing (2011) and Eric Bennett's Workshops of Empire: Stegner, Engle, and American Creative Writing during the Cold War (2015), we invite papers on postcolonial responses to creative writing as a globalized discipline. Perspectives from a wide variety of fields are welcome, including comparative literature, cultural studies, empire studies, new media, pedagogy, postcolonialism, and transnationalism.

Call for papers for the Chaucer MetaPage session at the International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, in May 2017
Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.
For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.
