250- to 500-word proposals, with title, for 15-minute papers/presentations treating pedagogy on the use of metacognition strategies in the context of active learning & appropriate technological support in teaching literature or composition in classroom settings. Metacognition encompasses “learning how we learn” activities and techniques. Active learning presumes learner-based instruction, and may include problem-based learning, inquiry-based learning, collaborative learning, or other forms of active learning, including the use of technology—PowerPoint, SmartBoards, student response systems, Smartphones, IPhones, IPads, IPods, social media (e.g., YouTube, Facebook), whether in F2F, online, or hybrid courses.
Short Description: This NeMLA panel invites participants to share their experiences engaging students with and through literature in spaces beyond the classroom, such as through common reading initiatives, student activities and clubs, and other co-curricular programming. It also welcomes speculative pieces proposing and evaluating possible new places in higher education for literature, literary study, and the humanities.

Adaptation studies was originally established with the intent to study the manner in which cinematic texts altered their literary sources. However, this concept has since expanded to engage with broader ideas of how adaptation functions and the manner in which it has come to interface with not only specific genres of literature, film, theatre, media, and the digital, but also the narratives that underlie these in a broader social, political, and historical sense (Raw and Gurr, 2013). In fact, it is now maintained that the field is broad enough to be conceptualised as an active determining process that affects almost every aspect of our lives as we engage with the world around us.
Please submit a short proposal for this roundtable at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies conference March 22-25, 2018 (Orlando, Florida).
“Culture” is not an object to be described, neither is it a unified corpus of symbols and meanings that can be definitively interpreted. Culture is contested, temporal, and emergent. Representation and explanation—both by insiders and outsiders—is implicated in this emergence.

In an academic setting, weighty or dramatic “adult” films are generally met with intellectual curiosity by students, or at least an acknowledgement that they are “worthy” of consideration. Genre films like horror or action are met with more resistance, but generally students are willing to admit they have some sort of ideological investments. Films aimed at children, however, are often dismissed as just entertainment. Surely we may analyze Bicycle Thieves, but Home Alone? Yes to Goodfellas, no to Goonies.

The theme of the conference this year is Applied Linguistics in the 3rdMillennium: Towards Criticality and Reflection. The participants around the globe are kindly invited to critically reflect and review the fields of applied linguistics in the early years of the third millennium.
The expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations – technological, methodological or procedural – with respect to the traditional model of learning-teaching. In parallel with this, it also offers an interesting field of study to undertake research into the learning of a language in all its domains – linguistic, social, or cultural – not only from theoretical approaches, but also in order to uncover areas of improvement and good practice.
