THEME:

Teaching Global Shakespeares -- SAMLA 2013 Special Session

updated: 
Sunday, March 10, 2013 - 11:37am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

"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:

Desire, Spirituality and "Regimes of Truth" in Contemporary South Asian Literature

updated: 
Sunday, March 10, 2013 - 11:07am
The World Forum for World Literature Studies

The World Forum for World Literature Studies published by Shanghai Normal University, Purdue University and the Wuhan Institute for Humanities calls for paper for its Special Issue on South Asian Literature. The Special Issue will examine the nature of power and its manifestations in various discourses on desire and spirituality in contemporary South Asian literature. According to Michel Foucault, power is the "network of relations" in which entities confront each other. There is no "essence" to power, but only its specific relational forms.

[UPDATE] Mapping Identity (PAMLA 2013)

Megan Cannella/PAMLA 2013

In this session, papers will look at the different ways place can determine one's identity. Whether discussing immigrant narratives, narratives of displacement, coming of age narratives or something all-together different, geographic location determines a great deal about one's personal narrative. Place can determine as much about a person as his or genetic history, making the relationship between identity and place subject to boundless exploration- See more at: http://www.pamla.org/2013/topics/mapping-identity#sthash.dF5hJvN2.dpuf
