World Literature Pedagogical Spaces: Weltliteratur, Untranslatables, and Praxis

updated: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 10:30am
ACLA 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

World literature has a tremendous capacity to broaden literary canons, but, when taught without a focus on translation, can succumb to cultural deracination, philological bankruptcy, and “the worst tendencies of capitalism” (Damrosch and Spivak 456). The World Literature Pedagogical Spaces seminar addresses these concerns by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars and teachers in literary studies, comparative literature, and translation. This roundtable’s goal is to diversify and exchange ideas on world literature in theory and practice, while developing sensitivity to translation in cross-cultural literary study and giving equal attention to scholarship, pedagogy, and praxis.

“Meaning is a shaky edifice we build out of scraps, dogmas, childhood injuries, newspaper articles, chance remarks, old films, small victories, people hated, people loved; perhaps it is because our sense of what is the case is constructed from such inadequate materials that we defend it so fiercely, even to death.”

Citizenship and American Literature

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session seeks papers that explore the concept of citizenship in hemispheric American literature. The scale and severity of the current immigration crisis in the United States presses us to reconsider how the category of citizenship produces exclusions and abuses that arise from our national imaginary. Thus, we seek papers that broaden our understanding of citizenship beyond the spatially-bounded to better grasp the range of categories that bestow and rescind national belonging. Recent work, such as Carrie Hyde’s Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship, reframes citizenship as an imaginative longing that sutures the legal concept of the citizen to the cultural work of fiction.
