This roundtable analyzes the possibilities of including social media in the foreign language classroom (with a focus on Italian), in order to create activities that might be appealing to the students’ interest in using new technologies. Different language instructors are using Facebook and Twitter (or other social media platforms) in the classroom, in order to increase the participation of their students or to design new assignments. This contributes to the creation of new spaces, outside of class, where the students can practice at their own pace, using tools with which they are very familiar, and with minimal supervision from the instructor when necessary.

Journal of Identity, Ontology, and Existences is an OA journal. We plan on publishing an issue three times per year, and we'll be accepting papers on a regular basis (January, July, and November). Our first issue will be set to publish at the end of January in 2018. 

The core focus will be on the exploration and investigation of the concepts found in the title of the journal, with some interdisciplinary-ness. Hence, possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s time in California remains under-researched. The MLA International Bibliography shows 50 scholarly works on The Last Tycoon, out of more than 2,300 scholarly works in that bibliography for just Fitzgerald. This session will explore Fitzgerald’s years in Hollywood, as a writer and as his works have been adapted. Submissions may consider works Fitzgerald wrote in California, including Tender Is the Night, The Last Tycoon, “The Pat Hobby Stories,” and his screenwriting for United Artists, MGM, and freelance, as well as his estrangement with Zelda, his alcoholism, and his death. Submissions that consider adaptations of Fitzgerald’s works for film are also welcome.

New Approaches to Teaching Fitzgerald

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This pedagogical roundtable welcomes proposals that offer innovations for teaching Fitzgerald's many works. How does his literature speak to the Jazz Age and major moments in United States and global history? How can works such as The Great Gatsby clarify studies of ecology, urban environments, photography, and other topics? Proposals that consider the author’s lesser researched works are encouraged.

Submit 300-word abstracts by September 30th with a free account at https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/17003.

Subversive Homes: Domestic Spaces in English Women’s Writing 1640-1740 (NeMLA Pittsburgh, April 12-15, 2018)

Women have traditionally been associated with domestic spaces. This panel will examine the complexity of these places as a locus of intersection between various economic, religious, and social spaces. As Nicole Pohl points out in Women, Space and Utopia 1600-1800, “the house and home—seems in itself subdivided into areas that display social division or solidarity: ‘The household is a ‘sociogramm’ of a family but [also] of something much more.” This panel will investigate the “something much more” that is taking place in the domestic landscape of early modern women’s writing.

CFP FOR AN EDITED COLLECTION: 

Architectural Representation in the European Middle Ages

Edited by Hannah Bailey, Karl Kinsella, and Daniel Thomas

 

The architectural remnants of the Middle Ages—from castles and cathedrals to village churches—provide many people’s first point of contact with the medieval period and its culture. Such concrete survivals provide a direct link to the material experience of medieval people. At the same time, exploring the ways in which architecture was conceptualized and depicted can contribute to our understanding of the ideological and imaginative worldview of the period.

 

REMINDER: ReFocus: The Films of Spike Jonze

Spike Jonze is a celebrated director whose deeply philosophical film work crosses boundaries between studio and independent modes of production, genre entertainment and experimentalism. Jonze's oeuvre includes highly regarded feature films (Being John MalkovichAdaptationWhere the Wild Things Are and Her), commercials, music videos and shorts; he is also a prolific producer and actor. Across his work, Jonze investigates the vagaries of contemporary American culture with a particular interest in themes of identity fluidity, loss and grief, American celebrity cultures, storytelling and metacognition, nurturance and development, technology and surveillance, evolution and sociobiology, memory and fantasy.
