The Shadow Lines (1988) is Amitav Ghosh’s acclaimed masterpiece. The novel won the Sahitya Akademi award, India’s most prestigious annual literary prize, as well as the Ananda Puraskar in 1990.

RuPaul’s Drag Race has steadily increased its audience share and jumpstarted the careers of dozens of drag performers. It’s not simply a contest to be declared “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” but a platform for each queen to shape their brand, promote different forms drag, and start conversations on a number of cultural questions (i.e. gender, race, and identity). This panel seeks paper that considers how the show has educated audiences on drag, beauty, race, and gender through its successes and failures.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Approaches to Teaching Fake News: When Technology Acts Faster than Journalism

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.
