(Re)Constructing Queer Pedagogy

39th Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Convention
April 10-13, 2008

Buffalo, New York

Despite the growth of composition studies and pedagogy as fields of interest
in recent decades and the simultaneous development of LGBT studies and queer
theory, these two areas of interest are rarely brought together. Drawing on
George Hillocks idea that theory forms the basis of coherent classroom
practice, this panel hopes to continue the discussion on queer pedagogy by
soliciting papers informed by theory, praxis, critical reflection, and
experience.

Shifting Notions of Turn-of-the-Century American Lyric

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York

This panel will focus on the relationship between late-nineteenth-century American poetry,
naturalism, and realism. Like realist and naturalist fiction, poetry of the period engages with
radical and rapid changes; American lyric reflects these contradictions and flows in its form and
content. This panel is interested in the ways that social changes infuse vitality into the form, how
inherited traditions intersect and adjust to changing political and social circumstances.

CFP: [Film] Expressionism & Its Discontents (8/10/07; SCMS, 3/6/08-3/9/08)

German Expressionist cinema offered an aesthetic that though innovative
and suggestive mise-en-scene invigorated Postwar Germany’s film industry
while creating an iconography of dread within the horror genre. Yet the
strength of this aesthetic did not contain itself solely to one genre,
country, or era. Despite the brief tenure of Expressionist cinema in its
native Germany, it became appropriated and rearticulated within the
Hollywood studio system. The Universal horror film cycle of the 1930s and
later the film noir style of the 1940s and 1950s owe a great debt to the
talent and ingenuity of the German filmmakers who defined this aesthetic.
