Refugees from Nazism: Innovation in Engineering and Industry

Historically, Exile Studies have concentrated on social, political and cultural themes but in recent years – most notably with the Conference of the Gesellschaft für Exilforschung in Vienna in 2014 and the subsequent publication of its proceedings Kometen des Geldes – economic questions have moved from the periphery to the centre of academic enquiry.

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?

We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.

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.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "Approaches to Teaching Ethics in Professional and Technical Writing Classrooms" (MMLA Panel)

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

This panel will spur conversation about ethics instruction across courses like business writing, engineering communication, and health science writing. Ethics instruction is a consideration in accreditation processes for disciplines like engineering, and often such instruction is assigned to the writing classroom. This panel examines how ethics are taught and assessed in writing courses; it seeks new assignments, new pedagogies, and new rubrics that take into account instructional constraints like time and training.

 

For consideration, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words and a brief bio to najung@wisc.edu by May 10, 2022.

As the COVID-19 pandemic exposed structural cracks in public health policies and health care systems around the globe, the humanities intensified arguments for their inclusion in health care, health education, policy development, and public health initiatives, citing, among other things, their existing work on cultural analysis, gender, race, and class, disease construction, illness narratives, the decoding of text, and perspective-taking. At the onset of the pandemic, humanities scholars from across the world quickly produced editorials and lecture series, arguing for, and demonstrating the value of, the humanities in responding to the global health crisis.
