This edited volume marking the centennial of Sholem Aleykhem's death (May 1916), will explore the writer's vast contributions to Yiddish literature through comparison with authors of other national literatures. The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements.

'When shall we live if not now?': Reassessing Shirley Jackson

updated: 
Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 1:50pm
American Literature Association

Shirley Jackson's work is currently experiencing a much deserved and long overdue critical and popular reassessment. Except for The Haunting of Hill House and the much-anthologized "The Lottery," Jackson's work has only seen sporadic scholarly activity. But with this year's publication of Let Me Tell You and a new biography set to be released in 2016, a reevaluation of Jackson's influential yet overlooked novels, plays, essays, and memoirs is more pertinent than ever. To that end, the theme of this proposed panel on Jackson's work is open-ended although preference will be given to scholars engaging with Jackson's lesser-known works.

Thursday, October 1, 2015 - 9:18pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

As many as half of traditional undergraduate students will take an online class in their academic career before graduation. Conversations in the humanities regarding online learning typically address the challenges facing educators in transforming their face to face techniques into an online environment. This panel would seek to gather scholars who are have been leading the conversation in their home institutions about how to leverage digital learning environments to implement their best cyber pedagogy strategies. In particular, this panel asks that these scholars think of the ways that the digital archive, in its many iterations, influences and impacts virtual learning environment.
