In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.

Friday, November 29, 2019

Writers and writers’ organisations have a long history of using their public standing and cultural capital to promote causes that transcend the literary sphere, from abolition and gender equality to free expression, anti-war agitation, and environmental issues. This two-day conference explores the intersections of authorship, politics, activism, and literary celebrity across historical periods, literatures, and media. It examines the forms and impact of authorial field migrations between literature and politics and the ways in which they are situated within, and shaped by, structural frameworks that include academic institutions, prize-giving bodies, publishing industries, and literary celebrity culture.

Teaching and Engaging Shakespeare in the Classroom (NeMLA 2020, roundtable)

Monday, September 30, 2019

More than 400 years after his death Shakespeare is still taught in western universities and throughout the world. The number of published books related to his works as well as similarly devoted scholarly conferences seem to increase yearly. This means that what and how to approach teaching Shakespeare is not stagnant as might be imagined, but rather is expanding. The number of plays attributed to Shakespeare have seen some fluctuations, but the theory and scholarly research applied to pinch and prod his works continue to produce new stimulating insights. This gives the teacher more options on what to include in their lessons and by necessity, what to exclude. It is no easy choice deciding what to focus on in the classroom.

Throughout the past decades, gamification has become an increasing part of training experiences. To define the term quickly, gamification involves the application of game play mechanics to normally non-game-based activities to increase successful activity and performance. Gamification can involve the use of popular video games, adaptations of game shows like Jeopardy, simple chalkboard games like Hangman, or a variety of rhetorical approaches that introduce gaming components into another field.

Futures for English

Monday, July 15, 2019

English has always been subject to a number of competing agendas, with the result that its purpose within the school curriculum has often been open to contention. From its inception, English has been seen by governments and employers as the subject that teaches literacy and prepares students for the work force. By contrast, other advocates of English have argued its importance in cultivating character and citizenship in students. Yet others have argued the importance of the role that English plays in stimulating the growth of the imagination and enabling students to appreciate the value of literary language.

This panel for NEMLA 2020 (Boston) examines the scholarly, pedagogical, and professional problems posed by current chronological demarcations of “early” and “modern” American literature and seeks to propose viable alternative chronological models. The specific years covered by the traditional undergraduate American literary survey have a lasting impact on the American public’s sense of literary history, the dissertation topics of graduate students, the canonical visibility of authors who span chronological margins, the specific texts that receive attention in an author’s oeuvre, the networking of scholars, the availability of grant money, the publication contracts of major presses, and the creation of tenure-track positions.
