Welcoming Students: The Syllabus as Hospitable Practice

Thursday, September 30, 2021

I know many of us hope that we create welcoming, hospitable environments for our students. That we, in some small way, encourage a space for community building and critical citizenship. Yet, we begin our semesters with the “reading” of an often woefully inhospitable and prescriptive document written in vaguely performative “legalese”—THE SYLLABUS. The syllabus is more than a mere delineation of our classes’ rules, regulations, policies, and procedures—though, these elements of the syllabus are important, to be sure. The syllabus is our students’ first experience of us as educators. This document represents us as educators nearly as much as the texts we chose to assign, the assessment portfolios we design, and the selves we share with our students.

Popular Culture Review Special Issue - Popular Culture and COVID

 

The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

Medieval Selves and Communities: Identities, Discourses, and Connections

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

As we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, the human response to trauma and tragedy takes a variety of forms: searching for and creating community, memorializing, lashing out, satirizing, and private mourning among them. In the aftermath of trauma and tragedy—be it a natural disaster, pandemic, revolt, or outbreak of violence--the acts of healing and rebuilding can take substantial time and require focused energy. Those living in the medieval past were, of course, no strangers to pandemics, natural disasters, and political and religious upheavals. How did they (and we) attempt to heal and rebuild after such events?

Call for Papers for NeMLA 2022 panel "Literary Form, Spirituality, and Empire in the Global 20th Century"

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 10:41am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks to explore the interrelations between spirituality, global (anti)imperial politics, and literary form and practice in the twentieth century. There has been a commonly held scholarly contention that modern literature emerged out of a crisis of faith, if not an absolute death of God. Was such a crisis of faith related to global politics in the fin de siècle and later? If yes, how? How is secularist thought related to notions and imaginaries of the globe and of the world? Where did the other-worldly and the inner-worldly meet? How are the transcendental other and the imperial other interrelated in twentieth-century world literatures?

CALL FOR PAPERS: Essays on Police and Policing in 21st Century Film and Television

The Black Lives Matter movement, the trial and conviction of Derek Chauvin,  calls to defund the police, the prominence in the media of killer police such as Joseph James DeAngelo are recent manifestations of intense and even unprecedented levels of media attention on policing at interlocking points of race, inequality, social justice and political agendas.  Equally, exciting cross-disciplinary engagement between fields of justice studies, criminology, cultural studies and popular culture are increasingly opening up.

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

NeMLA 2022 Panel -- Care, Knowledge, and Subjectivity: Foucault’s Epimeleia

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks to explore the contemporary uses of the Greek “care” or epimeleia particularly in ways enabled by Michel Foucault’s analysis of the notion connecting to (self)knowledge, subjectivity, and mode of life.

 

Towards the last years of his life, Michel Foucault turned towards Ancient Greece to talk about governmentality. In this exploration, he placed great importance on the notion of “care” or epimeleia which he linked to Socratic philosophy. The “care of the self” (epimeleia heautou) does not refer to a selfish or individualistic care of the self, but to a care that reaches out to others. It is the care of the self, for the care of others, for the wellbeing of the community.
