To Whom it may concern!

Attitudes to photography have undergone a radical shift in recent times. Partly in response to these contemporary changes, historians, curators and photographic practitioners have begun to re-examine older forms of photography: exploring the wide variety of historical technologies and techniques, finding surprising ways in which images were manipulated and determining how an ideology of photographic realism was maintained. Yet there remains a need for scholars to explore questions of early photographic 'authorship', singularity and objectivity in much greater detail.

CFP - Intersections: Complicating Sexualities in Middle English Literature (NeMLA, April 30-May 3, 2015, Toronto)

In her contribution to Bullough and Brundage's Handbook of Medieval Sexuality (1996), Jacqueline Murray calls for the de-universalization of the male perspective common to the majority of manuscripts. By composing accounts of sexuality that are in conversation with medieval sexual norms but which also pay attention to the individual experience of sex, we can arrive at a more nuanced understanding of medieval sexuality. Considering the sexual experience of literary characters also allows us to consider questions of mediated representation and perspective.

This roundtable seeks to explore new approaches to the teaching of world literature to college undergraduates, especially those in survey courses. How can we introduce students to traditional issues of national myths and exile in new and innovative ways? What are the boundaries of 'world literature' and how can we shape our syllabi and course goals to extend to exciting horizons beyond these limits?

This will be a "hands-on" roundtable, where we share ideas, compare visions, and discuss the teaching of world literature. Be prepared to share and receive both ideas and handouts/activities/syllabi!

Possible topics for this session may include but are not limited to the following:
