Practical Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare

This special topic panel will demystify the pedagogical puzzle of
teaching the Bard of Avon to willing (and sometimes unwilling) students.
Successful proposals will outline practical (i.e. leave the Piaget at
home) methods for teaching language, plot, performance, characterization,
symbols, themes, etc. in Shakespeare's plays or poems. Tell the story of
the class that went wrong or conduct a teaching demonstration with the
panel audience so everyone can see your brilliant strategies. Papers or
demonstrations should focus on teaching college-level courses
introductory, intermediate, or advanced.

CFP: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and Periodization (3/7/06; MLA '06)

Saturday, January 7, 2006 - 4:47pm
jill stevenson

"Bridging the Divide: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and
2006 MLA Convention
Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2006

"Periodization" has often limited the ways in which we define, examine, and
theorize performance. This panel invites papers that consider how medieval
and/or renaissance performance challenges
traditional notions of periodization. Periodization is defined broadly in
this context. Papers might suggest how performance bridges such moments as
ancient to early medieval, the High to Late Middle Ages, Medieval to
Renaissance, or pre- to post-Reformation, but papers that examine fresh
definitions, ideas, and theories of periodization are especially encouraged.

CFP: Early Modern Transatlantic (3/10/06; MLA '06)

Saturday, January 7, 2006 - 4:14pm
Joyce MacDonald

I am soliciting abstracts for a planned special session submission for
the 2006 Modern Language Association convention in Philadelphia, Dec.
The subject, "The Early Modern Transatlantic," reflects the growing
recognition in both American and European literary studies that
cultures on both sides of the Atlantic between roughly 1580 and 1800
were profoundly shaped by the effects of contact and colonization. To
what degree do both Europe and America come to see themselves in
international terms in this period? How do Europeans as well as early
Americans begin to understand themselves as world citizens? How can we
understand local political, economic, or literary events in
