Robin E. Field

Papers are sought for a panel examining the pedagogical
strategies we use to teach the literature of trauma in the
undergraduate classroom. I wish to examine Ethnic American
and Postcolonial literature in particular. Papers should
reference at least one piece of literature commonly taught,
and provide specific examples of teaching methodologies,
practices, and theories. Papers should run 15-18 minutes.

This panel will be held at the USACLALS conference at Santa
Clara University. Information about the conference follows.

Please send 250 word abstracts and a brief CV by April 1,
2006 to:

       Beckett Studies has changed radically since Richard Gilman claimed that Beckett's imagination worked "almost entirely outside history". In recent years, much work has been done to recover the relevant social and cultural contexts for Beckett's work, and this process has been greatly expedited by continuing efforts to disseminate the contents of the many drafts and manuscripts housed in the archives.

AREA: African American Documentary

The relationship of racialized communities to the cinema has been a
contentious one - in all realms, including the non-fiction film. From
early ethnographic films to more recent representations, constructions of
African Americans in documentary have remained problematic - not only in
terms of depictions, but access to production, distribution, and exhibition.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Static Online Journal

Submissions are solicited on the theme of Choice and Suffering for the third
issue of Static, the online journal of the London Consortium (publication
date: end June 2006).

The concept of choice is highly valued, especially in the West, as a
fundamental right of free individuals. Our sense of being free is often
based on our freedom to exercise choice in the marketplace, in matrimony, in
the voting booth, or in the hypertext link. But choice has its darker side:
it can prove to be illusory; sometimes the process of choosing can be
agonising; making a choice can close off future choices; we are frequently
forced to make choices.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Modernist Studies Association 8

October 19-22, 2006, Tulsa, OK

 

"Little Magazines and the Visual Arts"

 

The arrival of modernism in the visual arts, for British and American audiences alike, is often equated simply with urban spectacles that drew critical viewers en masse - in Britain, the 1910 exhibition of "Monet and the Post-Impressionists," and in America, the 1913 New York Armory Show. This panel seeks to complicate these assumptions by considering the role that visual reproductions and verbal descriptions of art have played in shaping the conception of what we have come to know as modernism.
