World Literature Pedagogical Spaces: Weltliteratur, Untranslatables, and Praxis

updated: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 10:30am
ACLA 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

World literature has a tremendous capacity to broaden literary canons, but, when taught without a focus on translation, can succumb to cultural deracination, philological bankruptcy, and “the worst tendencies of capitalism” (Damrosch and Spivak 456). The World Literature Pedagogical Spaces seminar addresses these concerns by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars and teachers in literary studies, comparative literature, and translation. This roundtable’s goal is to diversify and exchange ideas on world literature in theory and practice, while developing sensitivity to translation in cross-cultural literary study and giving equal attention to scholarship, pedagogy, and praxis.

Sunday, September 30, 2018

The economic realities facing today’s undergraduate population have led to a proliferation of enrollments into PhD programs. The unfortunate reality is that the majority of these neophyte graduate students are waiting for jobs that are either no longer available or never existed in the first place. Concurrently, for right or wrong, in US colleges and universities at all levels, adjunct and contingent faculty members are no longer in the minority. These part-time and non-tenure track (NTT) instructors outnumber their tenured and tenure-track counterparts at many two-year and four-year institutions.

“(Pero) hoy es incuestionable la supremacía de lo digital, y si a lo largo de nuestra historia un cambio de tecnología supuso evolución en las formas de vida, ¿qué nos puede deparar lo digital?”.

(Cassany: 2000)

The aim of this initiative is to spark debate on teaching practices and the effect of technology in learning, through a sharing of perspectives and approaches to the theme in different educational contexts.

Other topics that address solidarity between all workers in the university are welcome.

This roundtable will provide a forum for discussants to describe, analyze, and critique their experiences of teaching writing at specialized institutions. “Specialized institutions” will be interpreted broadly as an institution of higher education that is neither a traditional liberal arts college nor a regional, public university, but instead one that offers a narrower focus through its curriculum. For instance, federal service academies (i.e., West Point or Annapolis), technical colleges (i.e., Georgia Tech, MIT, or Cal Poly), or professional schools (i.e., Bentley University or FIT).

Songs of Innocence and of Experiential Learning

updated: 
Friday, July 13, 2018 - 11:25am
Jesse Miller (Northeast Modern Langauge Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Experiential Learning has been described as an innovative approach to pedagogy in the fields of literature, language, and composition. Proponents argue that integrating Experiential Learning opportunities such as public projects, the production of publications, partnerships with local organizations, volunteering, and field trips into the curriculum enable students to connect what they've learned in the classroom to the wider world. But the significance of the concept of experience in the scholarship on experiential learning, although far from self-evident, remains largely untheorized. In Songs of Experience, Martin Jay points out that in modern philosophy the concept of experience has taken on a range of meanings, sometimes to conflicting ends.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the College Writing Class

updated: 
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 9:14am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to education that emphasizes inclusivity in the design of curricula, instructional strategies, and assessment. Inspired by a movement in architecture to create accessible built environments, the UDL framework is intended to foster learning environments that provide welcoming spaces for learners of all types, according to the premise that structural “accommodations” intended to benefit particular students (closed captioning on videos, digital copies of print documents, alternative assessments, etc.) enhance the learning environment for all students. Increasingly, the UDL model is influencing public policy and the pedagogical climate of educational institutions from elementary schools to colleges.

Re-conceptualizing Peer Assessment

updated: 
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 9:09am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The practice of peer assessment encompasses various strategies ranging from peer review, peer editing, peer evaluation, peer tutoring, and peer critique, among others. With so many labels and definitions, it is no wonder the use of peer assessment techniques remains erratic and poorly defined. Continued widespread uncertainty over how students should provide feedback during the assessment phase of the writing process has resulted in the need for further analysis. Little has been done to standardize the way in which peer assessment is implemented. It remains necessary to identify the nature of the content of student feedback, the kind of assistance teachers can provide, and how students might better support one another.

Brutal Themes in Brutal Times: Teaching Edgar Allan Poe in a Culture of Violence

updated: 
Friday, June 29, 2018 - 9:34am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel seeks papers that explore pedagogical strategies for teaching the horror stories of Edgar Allan Poe and his contemporaries. With the looming, true-to-life violence bombarding us every day in the news and in other media outlets, the macabre tales of our favorite authors resonate too well. Teaching the violent and psychologically disturbing short stories of Poe, and others writing in this genre, can be challenging in the current climate of violence in America. Exploring the depths and darkness of humanity through literature can be traumatic for contemporary students who are bombarded with violent words and images every day through social media and news outlets.
