LGBTQ+ Topics in the German Classroom

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

We teach and learn in a more diversified environment than ever, but do our syllabi reflect gender diversity in the German classroom? Do we make it a topic in our teaching? When? At what level? With what materials? Do we even know how to address one another politely and appropriately, and how not, do we understand what transitioning is like for a transgender person? Do LGBTQ+ people have equal rights, how do the rights differ among German-speaking countries and in the US. In short: Is it not high time to bring the wide range of topics in the field of LGBTQ+ into the German classroom?

Trauma Theory in/and Indigenous Literatures

NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

    Trauma is a notoriously slippery concept to identify and comprehend, however, many theorists—-most notably Cathy Caruth in Unclaimed Experience—have argued that literature provides a means of representing and of ‘working-through’ experiences which otherwise have gone “unclaimed.” Absent from literary trauma theories, such as Caruth’s, however, is a consideration of the euro-centric core of theories of trauma. This absence can be attributed to the origins of literary trauma theory that emerged primarily out of Freudian psychoanalytic psychology and/or the deconstructive philosophy of the Yale School and Paul de Man.

The Old and the New: Communities of Practice and Shifting Borders in US Spanish"

updated: 
Friday, May 24, 2019 - 9:05am
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

The session seeks papers that examine Spanish in the United States (Mexican, Caribbean, Latin American) as it relates to old and new Hispanic community practices and border crossing (geographical, political, ethnic, social, perceptual, historical, religious, etc.). It intends to bring together interdisciplinary research from various theoretical and methodological perspectives in the humanities and social sciences on Latino/Hispanic communities in the United States.  By doing so, it hopes to broaden the discussion on the use of Spanish in different contexts from more than one perspective such as sociolinguistics, literary theory, discourse analysis, cultural studies and other related disciplines.

Diversifying the German Syllabus (session, NeMLA 2020 Boston)

As we strive for more diversity, social justice, and student agency in the German curriculum, it might be helpful to discuss our wider notions and definitions of diversity as well as how we hope to integrate them into our teachings. But what do we consider to be diverse? What keeps us from succeeding in designing more diversified syllabi? What are the blind spots we create despite our best efforts? Where is our own awareness lacking and how do we find approaches to overcome this oversight? Can we really create a truly diverse syllabus, or does including one aspect involuntarily result in including another?
