DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "American Literature 1870-Present" (MMLA Permanent Section)

updated: 
Sunday, April 24, 2022 - 11:15am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

The MMLA’s permanent section on American Literature After 1870 invites papers which, building on the conference theme, examine the topic of “post-book” American literature. In an 1868 essay, John William De Forest first used the term “The Great American Novel,” which has had an outsized impact on the American literary imagination ever since. This panel asks how the term applies in an age of sophisticated narratives that often live outside of the printed page, or in transmedia combinations with the printed page. While acknowledging the continuing importance of print texts both old and new, our panel seeks papers that examine the changes to literary analysis, objects, and pedagogy associated with a contemporary “post book” orientation.

PAMLA 2022: Open Educational Resources (OER) in the French and Francophone Classroom (roundtable)

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) based approaches have become increasingly popular as “solutions” to curb the extent of mis-, dis- mal-information, hate speech, online violence and harassment on social media. The pandemic and the ensuing work from home policy forced many platforms to shift to automated moderation which further highlighted the inefficacy of existing models (Gillespie, 2020) to deal with the surge in misinformation and harassment.

Friday, February 25, 2022

Algorithmic technologies are nowadays proliferating in various sectors of the economy and, more generally, in society. Yet, while their widespread development already occupies several areas of contemporary life, their material configuration often remains opaque and difficult to comprehend, especially when it comes to how algorithms shape the futures of people and societies at large. Often, algorithms and AI technologies are conceived by their users and creators as “magic” that is beyond comprehension — an understanding that has a range of political and cultural implications for society (Campolo & Crawford, 2020) and has been consequently recognized in the theorizations of economy and politics (Pignarre & Stengers, 2012).
