Courtly Literature and the Tangled Web of Text, Image, and Culture

Possible approaches may include investigating the affect of text(s) on culture(s), the influences of broadening cultural awareness on texts, or the inclusion of images within courtly literature.

Defining Stages in Women's Lives--Edited Volume

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 3:06pm
Florence R Jurney and Karen McPherson

Since the emergence of women's studies in the late 1960s, many books, articles and edited volumes have addressed and analyzed literary depictions of women's life experiences. Studies have focused on gender and identity, women's voices, women's agency, women and work, women coming to writing, feminist histories, gendered sexualities, women and the body, women in relationships, women and the family, women and violence. A considerable body of work has been published in both English and French on women's autobiography and on the mother-daughter relationship.

Unwired! The Uses of Mobile Technology in Foreign Language Education April 3-6 2014

Florence Ramond Jurney and John P Murphy/NEMLA

For better or for worse, technology has long been associated with foreign language education, from "old school" audio labs and overhead projectors, with their focus on language form, to more recent software innovations and conferencing programs that have accompanied the shift to communicative language teaching. Today's foreign language educators are not only expected to be familiar with such technology but also to incorporate it fully into their classrooms, as increasing references to technology in recent editions of the MLA Job List attest.

Reconsidering Sigourney: Essays on Lydia Sigourney (edited collection)

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 2:32pm
Mary Louise Kete and Elizabeth Petrino

The co-editors seek essays that showcase the breadth and vigor of the new scholarship on Lydia Sigourney. Though Sigourney was one of the most popular, productive and consequential authors of America's nineteenth-century (poet, entrepreneur, educational reformer, and essayist), serious critical attention to her work languished until the latter decades of the twentieth-century when the field of American literature and culture underwent the significant revision and revitalization.

CFP: Arrested Development edited collection

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 2:25pm
Dr. Kristin M. Barton

Over the course of its original three-year run on Fox, the television series Arrested Development quickly became a cult favorite and earned twenty-two Emmy nominations and six wins, including Outstanding Comedy Series in 2004. Unafraid to push boundaries, the series routinely satirized issues of race, sexuality, family, love, politics, and class, to name only a few. Combined with its sophisticated writing and its perfectly cast group of series regulars, the show became a layered and intricate look into modern society and one of the funniest sitcoms to emerge in the last decade. With this in mind, Dr. Kristin M.

Divine Adaptations: New Perspectives on Dante's Influence in Popular Culture

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 11:20am
Northeast Modern Language Association (Aril 3-6, 2014)

In Inferno V, 137 Francesca da Rimini explains to Dante how both book and author are responsible for her and Paolo's 'mal perverso' that led to their ultimate death and eternal damnation. However, further investigation reveals that Francesca's incrimination of the author, in addition to the text of the tale of Lancelot and Guinevere, is a misreading on the part of Francesca. According to Franco Masciandaro, the attempt to recreate the adulterous kiss, "brought about … sterility and death," and in addition, "imitatio, with its potential creativity, was adulterated." Masciandaro's critique of the lovers' misinterpretation and Francesca's distaste of the author both recall early criticism of adaptation theory.

David Magill / SAMLA

In keeping with the theme of this year's conference, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds," the Women's Studies regular session invites paper proposals on making feminist meanings across worlds. How have our enhanced online capabilities shaped women's studies and feminist discourse? How might women's studies consider its meaning making in online form? Is there a digital women's studies, and what might that scholarship look like? How do writers and artists use online media as part of their work? How does technology shape feminism and vice versa? Papers for this panel might examine particular writers who embody these issues in their works, or they might focus on broader issues in women's studies.
