DEADLINE EXTENDED

As our courses and our students increasingly migrate away from the traditional classroom setting to the online space, how does our teaching change? However maligned the traditional lecture has become, it can be, at least in theory, a remarkably responsive tool for engaging student; while lectures can easily be posted online, the immediately interactive nature of the classroom space is not as easy to replicate. What works for the online teaching of literature? What doesn't? How should what we change adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of the online setting? What pedagogical re-envisioning does the changing nature of the online literature classroom suggest? By June 1, please submit an abstract of 150-250 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to literature.pedagogy.samla@gmail.com.  SAMLA 90 will be held in Birmingham, AL Nov 2-4 2018; all presenters will need to be members of SAMLA well in advance of that date.
