[Conference Deadline Extended] Post-COVID Composition NeMLA 2024 Roundtable: Digital Natives and their Discontents: The Post-pandemic College Writing Classroom

updated: 
Wednesday, September 27, 2023 - 11:30am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

In this roundtable session, we intend to prompt a conversation about the prevailing beliefs concerning “digital natives” in the context of the pandemic-era college writing classroom. As most current college writing students have had some experience, typically for the first time, with online learning in high school during the pandemic, we want to foster a discussion about college instructors’ experiences of their students’ abilities, including the associated opportunities and pitfalls, in attempting to navigate these online academic environments.

CFP ACLA2024: Seminar "The Evolution of Interactivity in Storytelling"

American Comparative Literature Association

Montreal, Canada, March 14-17, 2024

Abstract deadline: September 30, 2023

The ongoing evolution of interactivity in novels, films, games, and digital media forms a continual dialogue between human creativity and technological innovation.  Interactivity has long been a cornerstone in storytelling, engendering a dynamic relationship between creators, writers, readers, players, and interactors.

Roopika Risam in her New Digital Worlds (2019) argues that the postcolonial digital pedagogy aims to show “how print culture has played a role in constructing a world that privileges the stories, voices, and values of the Global North and how digital cultures in the twenty-first century reproduce these practices, contributing to the epistemological marginalization of the Global South” (89).

What can quantification, statistics, and algorithms contribute to our understanding of literary works, trends, or history? How can engagement with data be productive, contributing to traditional research strategies by adding more options of interpretation and analysis? We welcome proposals for an edited volume on the possibilities – and limitations – of applying computational methodologies to the study of modern Hebrew literature from the Haskalah to contemporary times, all genres, including translation studies.

 

Please send abstracts by December 1, 2023 (500 words, and preliminary bibliography) in which you define your project: corpus, methodology, innovation, context, and connection to traditional literary study.

Este panel invita a explorar la cultura de internet del mundo hispanohablante y sus representaciones en producciones artísticas. El meme fue acuñado por el biólogo Richard Dawkins en 1976 para referirse a la difusión de “tunes, ideas, catch- phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or builduing arches” (249) mediante procesos de imitación. Décadas más tarde, el estudio de Patrick Davison (2012) corroboraría que la idea de “meme” había evolucionado gracias a las redes sociales y había pasado a tener el poder de exclusivamente cumplir un objetivo humorístico. Autores como B. E. Wiggins y G. Bret Bowers (2014) argumentan que la circulación del meme es una herramienta conversacional que alienta la participación de la cultura digital.

Any philosophical consideration of the current zeitgeist requires an assessment of the quasi-object ( Latour 1993) constellation of Artificial Intelligence and its affordances without giving in to either knee-jerk optimism or unchanneled pessimism. For if doomsday was indeed near (as social media discourses want us to believe), and human labour progressively redundant to the machinations of human-made artificial intelligence, what is the limit case scenario, which makes such a provocation real, tangible and material beyond fatalistic projections of obsolescence? How does that reconfigure the idea of the Human as both the object and subject of cybernetic capital?

In a world saturated with images in which audiovisual storytelling has dominated for decades shaping the aesthetics and expectations of the audience, and in which binge-consuming TV series on digital platforms and homemade videos on social media have become the trend of the last few years, it is quite unexpected to witness the reemergence of a storytelling that resists visual representation.  Of course, audio storytelling is not new; Stories voiced for the ear to listen have been with us since early on, for as long as there have been stories to share. What has changed in recent years, whetting our story-listening appetite anew, are the computing technologies ever rapidly developed for audio production, distribution and reception.

NeMLA 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2023

Though the Internet has been around since the 1980s, the “Internet novel” as a genre has only really emerged in the last decade or so. We can think of Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts (2021), Patricia Lockwood’s No One Is Talking About This (2021), and Calvin Kasulke’s Several People Are Typing (2021) as notable recent examples. Each of these novels take as their topic the particular and peculiar confines of the digital world we live in. Lockwood has described this sensation as falling through a “long void that never reaches the bottom,” while Brandon Taylor claims that “the Internet Novel captures some of the weird Gothic horror that white people have come, by way of their new digital Calvinism, to accept as being inherent to digital life.”

Friday, September 15, 2023

The intersection of the digital and environmental humanities speaks to our current moment: we live amid ecological changes that we seek to understand, mitigate, and publicize through new technologies. Medieval studies has long been at the forefront of the digital humanities, while ecocriticism and environmental history have advanced our understanding of how medieval people conceived of the nonhuman world. Recently, these threads have come together in adapting modern digital tools to study premodern experiences of local and evolving environments. Our panel centers this exciting area of study in anticipation of a forthcoming issue of Digital Philology on the same topic.

Abstract

In this thematic issue, we explore the place and role of animals in media, their representation and influence in the context of new media, advertising, social networks, films, series, and other forms of media content. Animals hold a significant position in popular culture and have become an integral part of our interaction with the media environment. We invite authors to explore various aspects of the presence of animals in new media and examine the ethical and social questions associated with their use and representation.
