Teaching Global Shakespeares -- SAMLA 2013 Special Session

Monday, April 15, 2013 - 9:32pm
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:

Building the Degree: The Potential and Pitfalls of Establishing a B.A. Program in English During Uncertain Times

Monday, April 15, 2013 - 8:02pm
SAMLA Special Session- November 8-10, Atlanta

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.

[New Submission Deadline] Legacy: Mythology and Authenticity in the Humanities (29 April, 2013)

Monday, April 15, 2013 - 3:43am
De Montfort University

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.
