The instructor of record for a college course is the sole person responsible for crafting the course syllabus, creating assignments, and evaluating students, yet collaboration is present in all aspects of our teaching. We encourage our students to work with us and with one another in order to foster a sense of community. Outside of the classroom as members of a department, we have the opportunity not only to share resources with colleagues but to invite them into our classrooms in a variety of capacities, from classroom observations to guest lectures to team teaching a course.
The 48th Annual NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association) convention will take place in Baltimore. We welcome papers focused on a wide range of topics, including literature, language, pedagogy, professionalization, and critical theory. Subject areas include:
Publish before a global audience. Present in a supportive environment. Network and create new relationships. Hear the latest research. Join a global academic community.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in the Arts & Humanities. As with IAFOR’s other events, ECAH2017 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
Join us at The Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront, Brighton, UK on Monday, July 10 - Wednesday, July 12, 2017 for The European Conference on Arts & Humanities 2017.
This panel seeks papers that explore the representation and function of sensory experience in the nineteenth century, with an emphasis on strange, unstable or unreliable sensory episodes and their larger literary and cultural significance. Rather than subordinating body to mind, how do nineteenth-century texts reveal an emergent cultural interest in the material body and its physiological particularities? We are especially interested in papers that investigate the role of sensory representations across disciplines and explore bodily matters at the intersection of nineteenth-century literature, science, philosophy or visual art.

Sites of Memory: Graveyards, Monuments, Ruins
Narrative has always had the power to help people feel and, one hopes, ultimately understand important personal and historic events. Representations of war in literature and film are important tools in understanding and creating a social memory of it. This roundtable welcomes papers that explore American literature and film that grapple with the war on terror. Please send 250-word abstracts to the NeMLA CFP website.
As Didier Fassin writes, the deployment of humanitarian affect creates in us “a sense of belonging to a wider moral community, whose existence is manifested through compassion towards the victims.” For this session, we invite papers that engage the theme of humanitarianism and human rights, as disseminated and made legible in the post-Cold War world novel and film. We are interested in papers that critically engage the resurgence of humanitarian affect and mobilization of empathy in the post-Cold War era—the era defined by the decline in utopian thinking and by the lack of tangible alternatives to liberal capitalism. Are human rights, as Mutua assets, simply the moral argument for the neoliberal project?
Major and Minor Works in World Literature--a roundtable at the annual NeMLA convention
March 23-26, 2017, Baltimore
This roundtable is organized by NeMLA world literature working group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of world literature. We invite world literature scholars and practitioners to take part in the meaningful dialogue on the term "world literature" and its relation to the fields of postcolonial and comparative literature, as well as to share their approaches to teaching specific courses or curriculum building. This year's theme is "major and minor works in world literature," but proposals on other topics are welcome as well.
