This panel examines the active participation of women in the public dialogue through the prism of their periodical publications. The rise of the periodical press has been recognized as a key factor in the formation of the public sphere in the nineteenth century (Habermas 1962). Studies of twentieth-century editorship, however, tend to take the institutionalization of editorship for granted. Male editors are often known by name, and they are studied in the light of their impact on the socio-political landscape of their time. Historically, however, editorship (and women’s editorship in particular) was often anonymous or pseudonymous and even explicitly staged as performance.

AAS Panel: "Literary Approaches to Early Chinese Philosophy"

Traditionally, the study of early Chinese philosophy has been bifurcated along a specific methodological axis.  Classical sinology has often focused on issues of textual criticism and reconstruction of certain lines of intellectual filiation between texts and schools, while comparative philosophy has tried instead to extract from these texts certain kinds of issues and truth claims which could intervene in debates often still founded on European texts.  Both of these perspectives are important, and they have never been hermetically sealed, as many scholars have been comfortable working in both modes.  However, this structural orientation of the discipline has encouraged a certain kind of binary vision when approaching early Chinese texts: the proper frami

Fostering Global Competence: Teaching Language and Culture Through Film

 

Abstract:

The session aims to reimagine the fundamental pedagogical role of foreign language and culture courses in the college curriculum in the era of globalization. Providing students with cultural experience is the objective and challenge in beginners’ language and culture courses. Films can provide the narrative of our fast-changing time, allowing reflection on global issues as well as cultural values. This session will explore whether it is possible to add relevant content to our instruction to help students reflect on the global era. 

 

Construction and Reconstruction of the Middle Ages: Memory of Delights

One significant feature of Medieval culture is quest for salvation and justice. For example, Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights incorporates complex human emotions into its pastoral horizon, where God and Satan, good and evil compete to deny Eden as paradise. Many writers offer texts in which social and material desires decline the land of milk and honey, and memory of human goodness turns reality into ironic space in which social unrest and private disquiet challenge existence. In a way, split memory of edenic delights produces rich legacy. We invite papers to address theme of memory of delights in history, literature, religion, philosophy, and other fields, both in Medieval period and across ages.

Submissions due: October 31, 2017.

 

New university students are digital natives; our classrooms filled with technology. Our students are increasingly online only – distanced by the demands of economics, geography, or time. Yet as English scholars, most of our training has been with physical materials and face-to-face methods: books, paper, discussion. So what are the best methods of using technology in our classrooms? How, why, and when should we use it?

“The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century”

updated: 
Monday, June 12, 2017 - 11:35am
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

This panel continues the work started by the "Ecology of Ageism in the Long Eighteenth Century," a panel at ASECS in 2016 that focused on the constructions of age in the eighteenth century. Not only a reflection of genes or time, aging is a cultural discourse that affects the interpolation of identity and the power dynamics of privilege. "The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Queer Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century" seeks to expand the discussion of aging by connecting age studies to work in performance theory, disability studies, and queer studies.
