Literature and Cognitive Science

PAMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 31, 2021

This panel invites papers exploring new subjects and approaches in the field of cognitive literary studies and, especially, cognitive poetics. We are interested in investigations of both the formal and the cultural/historical convergence of literary and cognitive research. What poems, novels, stories, etc. could be newly read and understood with the aid of insights and frameworks borrowed from such disciplines as experimental psychology and neuroscience? But also, why is it that literary scholars can turn to cognitive theories as plausible hermeneutical models in the first place? Where does the resonance between the concerns of writers and scientists, which today we seem to take for granted, come from?

Religious Futurisms: A Call for Papers

 

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a forthcoming collection of essays on the broad topic of Religious Futurisms, to be edited by Sumeyra Buran Utku and Jim Clarke.

Religious Futurisms derives its intellectual inspiration from the emergence of Afrofuturism and other Alternative Futurisms as ideological and analytical frameworks in recent years. Religious Futurisms can manifest as ideology, criticality, prophecy, futurology, philosophy or artistic practice. They may be discerned in a wide range of forms, ranging from speculative theology to performative videogame interaction to abstract or polysemous imagery in visual art.

NEMLA 2021: Family Inheritance in Original Creative Work

updated:

Betina Entzminger/Bloomsburg University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Writers inherit much from their families: stories, material wealth, trauma, discipline, genetic traits, knowledge, and other legacies. What do we do with this heritage and how do we make it our own in our original creative productions? Will the legacy become a heirloom seed that produces exquisite blooms or a hereditary disorder that wilts inspiration on the vine? Bestselling memoirists Mary Karr, Sherman Alexie, Ocean Vuong, and many others have famously shaped family trauma into achingly poignant works of art, begging us to ask if such pain is a necessary ingredient of their success.

New Approaches to Reading in the German Curriculum

updated: 
Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:33pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Dear colleagues,

please see the CFP below:

To be held at the 2022 Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA) convention in Baltimore, Maryland.

 

Reading is a fundamental component of all levels of second language instruction and the goal of developing reading proficiency necessarily informs the selection, didacticization, and instruction of curricular materials. A reliance on authentic texts common in curricula designed according to current standards poses challenges in these areas, but also creates opportunities for rethinking the place, purpose, and structure of reading proficiency as communicative competence in the language classroom and within the curriculum.

Breaking Down Barriers: Open Educational Resources in the L2 Classroom

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

With the increased cost of textbooks and a market that can never quite meet the individual needs of a given campus community, many universities are encouraging the use or development of open educational resources as a means of increasing access and promoting equity and inclusion across the curriculum. These materials are either in the public domain or licensed by their creators to be repurposed by other users, and more and more universities are beginning to incentivize their faculty to create such resources for their courses, whether they be a collection and adaptation of already existing materials or the creation of a wholly original text.

When Poets Write About Poets: Representation(s) of the Poet and Poetry in Poetic Works (NeMLA 2022 - Panel)

Lucie HOUDU (for a 2022 NeMLA Panel)

Thursday, September 30, 2021

From the very first traces of written poetry, poets have been inspired by their peers: whether with elegies, odes or allusions to the poets they admired, they have always incorporated figures of poets and other poetic texts in their own poems. Intertextuality abound from the classical texts (quotations, sources and models) by earlier poets, for instance Ovid, Virgil or Cato. Some of their contemporaries, like Tacitus, have questioned the ideologies of their predecessors. Closer to us, Milton in his 16-line “On Shakespeare” (1630) argues that no monument is a suitable tribute to Shakespeare’s oeuvre; Thomas Gray pays himself homage to Milton in “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” (1751).
