updated: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 6:12pm
2012 SAMLA CONFERENCE CALLS FOR PAPERS

This workshop on Interdisciplinary Pedagogy in Literature aims at discussing the following:
What are the fundamental elements of interdisciplinary teachings in literature? How do we
incorporate various texts from different disciplines into a single interdisciplinary teaching in
literature? How can we bring students' research in dialogue with the research on other
disciplines, sometimes with social sciences and natural sciences? Papers are welcome that
explore the methods of interdisciplinary teaching pedagogy. By June 30, 2012, please submit
abstracts of 300 words to Yubraj Aryal, Purdue University, at yaryal@purdue.edu.

'Texts are always sites of evaluative struggle between the "high" and the "low", whatever the presumed hierarchical positioning of their overall domain.' (Léon Hunt)

"Renaissance Que(e)ries: Un-disciplining the early modern body"

updated: 
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 - 11:44am
NeMLA 2013

In the recent anthology Shakesqueer (2011), Madhavi Menon claims, "Reading Shakespeare as queer rather than queered challenges the rule of chronology and identity that has thus far kept his poems and plays from exercising queer agency." This panel takes up Menon's urge to reconsider the relationship between queer theory and the early modern, welcoming papers that read early modern literature, both Shakespeare and beyond, as a body of queer texts, rather than historically distant productions at which we might look through a contemporary queer lens.

"Debts to the Moor: Citations of Shakespeare's Othello" Deadline 07/02/2012

Midwest MLA Convention, November 8-11, 2012, Theme: Debt

Debts to the Moor: Influences, Adaptations, and Citations of Shakepeare's Othello

This panel invites theoretical inquiry and/or performance analyses of appropriations of William Shakespeare's Othello in film, popular culture and/or foreign non-English adaptations. Some questions to consider are: What methodologies are employed when considering the expectations of local audiences producing and consuming the adaptation? What contextual influences inform the reiteration of Othello in a range of performance venues? What literary debts are acknowledged when Othello is cited in popular culture, in widely distributed English films, and/or in foreign performances for non-English speaking audiences?
