Marianne Cotugno

We are seeking additional participants for a roundtable, Beyond Grades: Assessment Roundtable for Teachers of Literature.

Our roundtable seeks to provide hands-on experience to attendees with developing course-level assessment techniques for literature courses and to encourage a broader conversation about the role of assessment in literature programs and at the university.

We have two participants, who are both professors of literature and experienced with assessment. We would like to have 4-5 participants.

Much of the recent work done in affect theory has focused on dark and problematic affective states such as alienation, melancholia, and despair. These negative affects have also been linked to literary modernism, which is often represented as a historical period of both creative richness and social disillusionment. This proposed panel will consider whether affect theory can be brought to bear on American modernism in new and thought-provoking ways. How might critical assessments of feeling in the American modernist period move beyond such well-trod signifiers as ennui, doubt, and pessimism? What relation, if any, can be inscribed between American modernist literature and one or more "positive" or remedial affects?
