Cultural institutions are custodians of important collections of the material and natural world. They are repositories of material culture that reflect the cultures and practices of humanity and the natural world, revealing the fantastic, the foibles and the strange, in addition to the efforts and products of great ingenuity. Such collections, in various formats from the ephemeral to the digital, from the bespoke to the mass produced, are accessed by many different publics, including those seeking to understand or connect with elements of popular culture.

Current discussions on precarity in the Canadian academe respond to the economic structures of university labour. The increasing dependence of universities on temporary teaching staff and the paucity of “alt-ac” positions have dominated conversations about precarious labour and the changing nature of early career researchers.

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.

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.
