Pedagogy of the Unpopular: Teaching the Medieval in the 21st-Century Classroom (Roundtable) - ICMS2022

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Sometimes what we love is unpopular.  In the broadest sense, medieval studies face a cultural reckoning that sees us as irrelevant and unprofitable in contemporary higher education.  Yet, these generalizations ignore the rich worlds that exist in the literature, art, history, etc., that we love so much.  And so, how do we keep the medieval relevant to the 21st-Century student in order to revive our disciplines in ways that are both academically rigorous and imaginatively compelling?  This roundtable seeks presenters who have developed innovative and engaging courses, assignments, and classroom activities to share with other scholars to implement in their own courses.

Recent work on Shakespeare has shown the myriad ways in which the plays can be used productively to think through contemporary cultural and political issues. Books like Shakespeare and Latinidad (Trevor Boffone and Carla Della Gatta, eds.), Shakespeare and the Shades of Racism (Ruben Espinosa), Shakespeare and the 99% (Sharon O’Dair and Timothy Francisco, eds.), and Teaching Social Justice Through Shakespeare (Hilary Eklund and Wendy Beth Hyman, eds.) have demonstrated the relevance of Shakespeare to modern discourses of race, ethnicity, sexuality, colonialism, bilingualism, economic justice, social justice, education, and politics.

CONFERENCE POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 23-24 2021 

Considering the recent global events, we have unfortunately decided to postpone the conference (originally scheduled for September 25-26, 2020) to a further date. The safety of our speakers, staff, and academic cohort has been the decisive argument in this matter. 

We will announce a new date as soon as possible, but the most likely period is the second half of September 2021.

Laverne Cox’s debut role in Orange Is The New Black seemed to usher in a new era for trans representation. In 2014, TIME decreed that the “Trans Tipping Point” had arrived and heralded a path to trans acceptance through visibility on the screen. Yet this increase in visibility has not formed an antidote to rampant transphobia. In 2021, thirty-three states have introduced 117 bills to limit and curtail the rights of trans people across the United States. In this panel, we consider the effects of hypervisibility in a time of public transphobia across media.

While the year 2020 is known around the world as a time when everything changed, the year marked an especially different turn for the Asian American community. Many have interpreted the recent waves of shocking racist attacks and anti-Asian sentiments targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities as a direct link to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. However, in reality, it is critical to understand that the voice of anti-Asian violence and hate is far from being a new concept in America.

For decades, eighteenth-century periodicals have been readily available in countless digital databases--Google Books, the Burney Newspapers Collection, Adam Matthews Eighteenth-Century Journals, Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Collections Online, --simultaneously, feminist literary scholars have been recovering previously ignored eighteenth-century women writers. While scholarly journals and as a result, classrooms, have included more women writers into the literary canon, the critical bias of novels and poetry over periodicals, fiction over nonfiction, remains.

Established in 1989, the Center for Mark Twain Studies “International
Conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies” is the oldest and largest
gathering devoted to all things Twain. During times so turbulent and
uncertain as to require that that the quadrennial conference on the State
of Mark Twain Studies be postponed by a year, the theme of change and
growth “speaks to our condition,” as the Quakers say.

René Pintard in his fundamental study Le libertinage érudit dans la première moitié
du XVIIe siècle already highlighted the difficulty in distinguishing between the
illustration of a sincere fideism and that of a strategic fideism, expressed in order to
disguise otherwise risky affirmations. The authors that Pintard defines as “erudite
libertines” of the seventeenth century, a period when, like everyone else, even
atheists and sceptics died “well confessed and having received Holy Communion”,
were masters of hypocrisy by necessity. The same also went for the thought of the
following century, the century of Reason and the Enlightenment, in which freedom of

In his foreword to World Report on Violence and Health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002, Nelson Mandela states that “the twentieth century will be remembered as a century marked by violence” (Krug et.al., 2002, “Foreword”).  Now we are nearly at the end of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, but violence still permeates in our lives at various levels. Various forms of violence occurring at levels of interpersonal, self-directed, collective, state, warfare, child and youth violence, intimate partner violence, environmental violence, and animal violence lay bare the complexity and pervasiveness of the phenomenon, yet it also brings along the necessity to discuss violence from multiple perspectives.

Dissenting Beliefs: Heresy and Heterodoxy in Fantasy

Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.

Clara Sereni was an innovative writer, a passionate intellectual, and a committed activist, whose literary work and political engagement have left an indelible mark on contemporary Italian literature and society. Her numerous fictional and non-fictional writings bear witness to crucial times in Italian history (Fascism, post-war years, the 1960s and 1970s and the Berlusconi era) while also exploring the intimate struggle for personal independence and self-affirmation of multi-faceted female characters in their roles as daughters, mothers and “handicapped” mothers, workers, activists, politicians, Jews.
