"Literature in the First Year Seminar" roundtable session

updated: 
Sunday, July 5, 2015 - 2:24pm
Amanda Greenwell / NeMLA 2016 Hartford, CT (March 17-20)

First Year Seminar courses provide a way for first year students to undertake the rigors of intellectual study in an environment supportive of the transition they undergo as they enter college. As such, First Year Seminars can be sources of tension, discovery, frustration, and connection. From the instructor's point of view, the experience of teaching a first year seminar can cause new understandings to emerge—understandings of disciplinary value, of first year students, of institutional culture, and of effective pedagogy.

Touching the Body in Pieces: Affective Ecologies of the Modern Body (NeMLA- March 2016, Hartford, CT)

Kara Watts and Molly Hall

From artist Hans Bellmer's distorted dolls, to Rupert Brooke's "dust" in a "corner of a foreign field," to Virginia Woolf's "orts, scraps, and fragments," bodies – textual, phenomenological, cultural, political, and physical – seem to fall to pieces in modernism. How can we conceptualize the modern body in light of its affective and ecological surrounds?

"Strange Bedfellows" (dis)junctions UC Riverside Graduate Conference 2015 -- Nov. 2-3, 2015; abstracts due July 30th [UPDATE]

(dis)junctions Graduate Conference / University of California, Riverside

"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)

UC Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.

Theodicy of Spirituality in Contemporary American Women's Poetry--NeMLA 2016--Abstracts Due September 30, 2015

updated: 
Thursday, July 2, 2015 - 2:56pm
Scarlett Cunningham/ University of Mississippi

Panel Description:

This panel seeks to emphasize the diversity of women's spiritual experiences by showing how spiritual and religious identity intersect with other vectors of difference such as gender, race, class, age, sexuality, and ability in contemporary American women's poetry. Most religions seek to reconcile the idea of human suffering with the existence of a loving God. However, men have traditionally held a disproportionate amount of power and authority in delineating doctrinal truths regarding theodicy in the world's major religions.

The theme for this year's graduate conference will address the powers and limits of resistance. What constitutes resistance and how is resistance embodied?

As recent decades have been shaped by struggles of resistance, this conference considers the various possibilities that resistance opens for our futures of revolt.
