ROUNDTABLE: Making Early American Literature ‘New’ in the Classroom: Pedagogies, Prognoses, and Practices NEMLA 2017

updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 10:58am
NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable focuses on the perennial issue faced by so many teachers of early American literature: how to make the field interesting, stimulating, and engaging for students who might otherwise avoid it on account of its challenging language, detailed historical contexts, and often lengthy or unfamiliar content. The roundtable will discuss various strategies aimed at increasing student engagement with early American literature, and it may also address other ongoing, unresolved concerns of teachers and scholars of early American literature.

Abstracts of 150-200 words must be submitted through the NEMLA website. 

Include a brief (<50 word) bio.

Strange Sensations: Reading Bodily Experience in the Nineteenth Century: NeMLA 2017

updated: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 - 11:23am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks papers that explore the representation and function of sensory experience in the nineteenth century, with an emphasis on strange, unstable or unreliable sensory episodes and their larger literary and cultural significance. Rather than subordinating body to mind, how do nineteenth-century texts reveal an emergent cultural interest in the material body and its physiological particularities? We are especially interested in papers that investigate the role of sensory representations across disciplines and explore bodily matters at the intersection of nineteenth-century literature, science, philosophy or visual art.
