You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas.  Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.

Pedagogy of the Unpopular: Teaching the Medieval in the 21st-Century Classroom (Roundtable) - ICMS2022

Sometimes what we love is unpopular.  In the broadest sense, medieval studies face a cultural reckoning that sees us as irrelevant and unprofitable in contemporary higher education.  Yet, these generalizations ignore the rich worlds that exist in the literature, art, history, etc., that we love so much.  And so, how do we keep the medieval relevant to the 21st-Century student in order to revive our disciplines in ways that are both academically rigorous and imaginatively compelling?  This roundtable seeks presenters who have developed innovative and engaging courses, assignments, and classroom activities to share with other scholars to implement in their own courses.

Recent work on Shakespeare has shown the myriad ways in which the plays can be used productively to think through contemporary cultural and political issues. Books like Shakespeare and Latinidad (Trevor Boffone and Carla Della Gatta, eds.), Shakespeare and the Shades of Racism (Ruben Espinosa), Shakespeare and the 99% (Sharon O’Dair and Timothy Francisco, eds.), and Teaching Social Justice Through Shakespeare (Hilary Eklund and Wendy Beth Hyman, eds.) have demonstrated the relevance of Shakespeare to modern discourses of race, ethnicity, sexuality, colonialism, bilingualism, economic justice, social justice, education, and politics.

While the year 2020 is known around the world as a time when everything changed, the year marked an especially different turn for the Asian American community. Many have interpreted the recent waves of shocking racist attacks and anti-Asian sentiments targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities as a direct link to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. However, in reality, it is critical to understand that the voice of anti-Asian violence and hate is far from being a new concept in America.
