PAMLA 2022: Open Educational Resources (OER) in the French and Francophone Classroom (roundtable)
The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.
Amodern 12: Alternative Print Technologies and Revolution
Edited by Thomas S. Mullaney and Andrew Amstutz
The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies is a fully open access peer-reviewed publication edited by graduate students at The University of Iowa that mixes traditional approaches and contemporary interventions in the interdisciplinary humanities and interpretive social sciences. This year’s issue will explore the boundaries that can challenge and facilitate interdisciplinary scholarship through an inquiry into margins, marginalia, and the marginalized.
In the years leading up to the publication of The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot decried what he called the moral cowardice endemic to post-war London, and particularly to its literary circles. D. H. Lawrence was similarly preoccupied with morality in his literary critical essays, writing, for example, that "Morality in the novel is the trembling instablity of the balance [between opposing forces]. When the novelist puts his thumb in the scale, to pull down the balance to his own predilection, that is immorality." And, finally, Hemingway once suggested to a group of professors that of all his novels, the best to teach is The Sun Also Rises because, he said, it is a "very moral novel."
The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.
For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.
Zoom parties became a new way of coming together, as did streaming watch parties.

Chiasma #9 Why are we [still] doing Theory?
“We are not essential. We are sacrificial.” With this statement, Sujatha Gidla, a subway conductor in New York City compelled back to work during the COVID-19 pandemic, observes that service workers who have been defined by their disposability constitute a bedrock for racial capitalism in an era of proliferating crises. We invite submissions to a special issue of Post45 that will turn to aesthetic and cultural mediations of service in the late 20th and early 21st century in order to theorize and historicize the relations between death, labor, and racial capitalism.

Russell T Davies has been one of the foremost voices in British television for the last three decades. The range of Davies’s work is formidable - from his early work on children’s television such as Dark Season (1991) and Century Falls (1993), to his ground-breaking work creating programmes such as Queer as Folk (1999-2000), Bob and Rose (2001), The Second Coming (2003) and Mine All Mine (2004), to his phenomenally successful rejuvenation of Doctor Who (2005), through to his more recent work such as Cucumber (2015), Years and Years (2019) and It’s a Sin (2021). In the process, he has indelibly transformed the British televisual landscape.
The Travel and Literature session is part of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) 2022 conference, to be held in Los Angeles at the UCLA Luskin Hotel and Conference Center, from Nov. 11-13, 2022.
Proposals on any topic related to Shakespeare are welcome, though we specifically seek proposals that engage with the 2022 MMLA theme of “Post-Now.” What is the role of Shakespeare in society moving forward or are we “post-Shakespeare”? Are there pedagogical approaches, performances, or research foci that might help us envision the “revolution of the times” as it relates to Shakespeare and Shakespearean studies? Please submit a 250-word abstract and brief bio (or brief CV) to Jeanette Goddard at email@example.com by April 15, 2022.
This session welcomes papers that delve deeply into the shared spaces between literature and philosophy for this year's PAMLA Conference in Los Angeles, California (Nov. 11-Nov. 13, 2022). Literature has had a long history of being discerned and practiced through the philosophical. From the early writings of Plato to the contemporary work of Martha Nussbaum, literature has generated invaluable resources of epistemology, normativity, aesthetics, and studies of language and consciousness (among other critical fields of study).

Participation both depends on and produces agency. Therefore, it is always embedded in power structures and power remains unequally distributed. Though empires are long gone, neo-colonial structures of domination continue to exploit the so-called Global South, to privilege Eurocentric knowledge traditions over non- Eurocentric knowledge, and to exclude racialized subjects or people and communities from erstwhile colonized countries from power positions. For decades, postcolonial subjects have worked against imperial forms of oppression. They continuously labor to create space for local and hitherto marginalized world views and experiences. Processes of (self-)translation produce spaces of articulation and enable participation.
