The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society will sponsor two panels at the annual meeting of the American Literature Association, to be held May 23-26, Boston, USA.

Panel 1: Emerson and Pedagogy

The Emerson Society are inviting proposals that examine or encourage strategies for teaching Emerson, informed by disciplines other than English or methods other than literary criticism, for example, rhetoric, journalism and media studies, environmental studies, creative writing, philosophy and religion, gender studies, material culture, etc. The society is also interested in receiving proposals that consider pedagogies and approaches that engage the younger generation with the core ideas/ideals of Emerson, reviving them for the current age.

Vision/Revision

“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.” —George Eliot

“And time yet for a hundred indecisions/And for a hundred visions and revisions/Before the taking of a toast and tea.” —T. S. Eliot

Presentist, Historical, and Unveiled Identities from Beowulf to the Eighteenth Century

This survey panel aims to establish dialogues between experts in early literatures. The confluence of epochs facilitates cross-historical discussion and provides a means for thinking about ways to teach early survey courses in university or college classrooms. This panel focuses on identities (racial, gendered, sexual, or mediatized, etc.). In recent years, scholars have labelled efforts to locate early forms of contemporary identity in early literature as presentist, an approach that tends to overlook differences between historical eras by prioritizing current concerns. However, are presentist methods actually flawed? And does any effort to trace earlier forms of current interests automatically constitute presentism?

Teaching Christian Drama to Biblically Illiterate (and Semi-Literate) Audiences

Western civilization is deeply rooted in Judeo-Christian tradition and ideology, which goes a long way in explaining why the Bible is a shadow text on nearly every college literature syllabus. The heritage of the so-called “the book of books” spans the full historical spectrum of English writing, from its earliest specimens up to its most recent. For centuries, the bible offered up a common vocabulary and shared lens through which American college professors and their students could think and talk about literary history and culture.

World Literature Pedagogical Spaces: Weltliteratur, Untranslatables, and Praxis

ACLA 2019

World literature has a tremendous capacity to broaden literary canons, but, when taught without a focus on translation, can succumb to cultural deracination, philological bankruptcy, and “the worst tendencies of capitalism” (Damrosch and Spivak 456). The World Literature Pedagogical Spaces seminar addresses these concerns by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars and teachers in literary studies, comparative literature, and translation. This roundtable’s goal is to diversify and exchange ideas on world literature in theory and practice, while developing sensitivity to translation in cross-cultural literary study and giving equal attention to scholarship, pedagogy, and praxis.
