Teaching English to Non-Majors- Roundtable

40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts

Most faculty, whether it be at a large University, a small liberal arts
college, or a two-year college, have to deal with non-English majors in
their classroom at some point in their careers. This roundtable discussion
will focus on teaching both literature and composition in the general
education classroom. What methods do you use to motivate students who feel
that English "doesn't apply to their lives"? Abstracts for 5-7 minute
presentations should be sent to Julie Strongson at

Deadline: September 15, 2008

Please include with your abstract:

Name and Affiliation
Email address
Postal address
Telephone number
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA panel;

present a paper at a panel or seminar and also present at a creative
session or participate in a roundtable.
