"Global Shakespeare" is a trendy topic in early modern scholarship, but how can we best translate it into effective teaching? What do "global" studies of Shakespeare offer a contemporary college student? What challenges does teaching Shakespeare in a global context pose for college educators, and how do we navigate them? This SAMLA special session will discuss these and other such questions. Papers might address pedagogy directly, or they might teach a given text (play, film etc.) or set of texts. Topics might include but are not limited to:
This panel invites participants from any college or university where there is an interest in building a B.A. in English or establishing a new programmatic track within the discipline. Participants need not be at any particular point in the process, and we hope to incorporate a diverse array of experiences and viewpoints. In other words, participants may only be thinking about the possibility of creating a program or they might be on the other side of the process. This panel will also consider what types of programs should/need to be created to meet the changing needs of students in the 21st century. We hope that this session will produce a vibrant dialogue that will serve as a bridge to future cooperation.

Transforming Postgraduate Research: Engaging with the Digital World
The event will include keynote addresses by:
• Professor Martin Weller (Open University) •
• Professor Sarah Churchwell (University of East Anglia) •
Transforming Postgraduate Research: Engaging with the Digital World is a one-day interactive training initiative for postgraduate students across the arts and humanities interested in public engagement and digital media. It aims to provide introductory training for postgraduate researchers in using the digital to create exciting means of disseminating academic research beyond the academy to achieve maximum impact, in other words, digital engagement.
This conference focuses on the influence of cultural 'legacies' within current humanities research. By highlighting the work of postgraduates and early career researchers, this interdisciplinary conference will examine the various ways in which 'legacies' are created, restructured, perpetuated and even rejected. It will also question whether newer disciplines respond to cultural mythologies by establishing their own 'legacy' as a means of achieving academic authentication.

The idea of Liberation Theology continues to exert profound challenges - theological, ontological and theoretical - to the Catholic Church, long after the first context of its emergence and reception (the Cold War) and its first attempted censure and routing. At a time of global financial crises and the immiseration of previously comfortable stratas of Western nations, renewed imperial intrigues and grass-root insurrections in the Middle East, and the explosion of zones of the "Global South" in and around the citadels of the North, Liberation Theology holds out the promise of a direct acquaintance with the poor and oppressed of the new millennium.
