“(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 research group EL@N from Universidade Aberta will be hosting the first conference on innovation and technology in language teaching as applied to e-learning and b-learning environments. 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.

What happens when we intersect the principles and methods of Digital Humanities with the teaching of foreign languages and literatures?

SCMS 2019- Network Aesthetics

updated: 
Wednesday, August 8, 2018 - 11:06am
Aden Jordan
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Our panel is focused upon networks, and the ways in which cinema and media have responded to the difficulty in representing complete models of contemporary networked existence. Our first speaker will be exploring how networks are represented geographically, specifically examining the second season of True Detective. In the series California is characterized as an infrastructural-economic network. This network poses significant problems for policing networks trying to mediate criminal activity that moves fluidly across borders and behind political obfuscation. In the series, effective policing is part and parcel with efforts to maintain a stable sense of identity complicated by the incongruity between personal and professional networks.

Approaches to Teaching Fake News: When Technology Acts Faster than Journalism

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 12:36pm
Lindsay Bryde/ Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

UPCOMING DEADLINE - Hashtag Activism: Case Studies of Digital Protests & Online Social Movements

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

From #BlackLivesMatter and #TakeAKnee to #WhyIStayed and #MeToo, hashtag activism campaigns have continued to proliferate in recent years. Whether connected to specific in-person protests (#MarchForOurLives; #MarchForScience; #WomensMarch), consumer boycotts (#DeleteUber; #NotBuyingIt), social commentary (#OscarsSoWhite), fundraising (#IceBucketChallenge), humanitarian efforts (#BringBackOurGirls), or social justice campaigns (#OwnVoices), Twitter has become a vital tool for activism and social commentary. Unsurprisingly, academic studies of hashtag activism campaigns have likewise been on the rise as scholars grapple with the benefits and consequences of digital activism.

Metacritic Journal for Comparative Studies and Theory calls for the December issue of the Journal, welcoming a non-themed collection of papers written by established scholars and young researchers alike. Would-be contributors are invited to send articles illustrating the complexities of their field of choice, engaging with the literary and cultural theory so as to promote reading in a customized framework that privileges interdisciplinarity and self-reflection. We highly appreciate critical efforts to tackle contemporary fictional works while connecting them to philosophical attempts to theorize their cultural context. Especially encouraged are cultural, historical, and theoretical considerations suspicious of grand narratives.

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.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The digital age is changing the way we access the past. Previously, writers often accepted family lore, the recollections of elders, as a way to access the past. However, in the digital age, lore may be proven false. A recent post on a Facebook Ancestry.com group reported that a common disappointment for many users is that their DNA results indicate no Native American ancestry despite family legend of a great-grandmother “Cherokee Princess.”   

Special Issue "Shakespeare and Digital Humanities: New Perspectives and Future Directions"

updated: 
Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:47am
Humanities (ISSN 2076-0787).
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

Shakespeare is now fundamentally digital. The technologies, resources and cultures of the digital age influence how we humans variously read, watch, research, and teach Shakespeare. This influence occurs in both apparent but also unseen ways since digital technologies include hidden processes, or non-human actors such as algorithms. In fact, the thing we call “Shakespeare” is the consequence of the interaction of agential humans and digital, non-human actors. The Special Issue of Humanities explores this technogenic dynamic and its significance for understandings of Shakespeare’s works and their cultural afterlives.
