deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

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.

Strange Sensations: Reading Bodily Experience in the Nineteenth Century: NeMLA 2017

updated: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 11:23am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

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.

American Literature and Film of the Wars on Terror (Roundtable)

updated: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 11:34am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

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.

Writing Human Rights in the Post-Cold War World Novel and Film

updated: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 11:44am
NeMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

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.
