updated: 
Monday, July 18, 2016 - 2:18pm
Richard Schumaker Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

 

The aim of this roundtable is to present possible guidelines and book selections for a hypothetical undergraduate course in “Novels of the Holocaust.” The panel will be resolutely international and open to books originally published in any language. As this roundtable is sponsored by NeMLA’s comparative literature director, participants are not obliged to use or refer to English translations if they wish to use original texts. The course that might be called the “target course” may be for any undergraduate level and for any country.

While this is roundtable is meant to follow the interests of its participants and not impose any institutional rigidities, seven particular themes or questions seem especially important.

edits; believes in reaching the knowledge to most of the seekers. With this motto we are happy to launch two journals which would act as a platform from where ideas would emanate. Ideas are not effective till they reach too many heads, and keeping a knowledge restricted within the pay walls is nothing less than an epistemic violence. So our publications are open access and will certainly remain so.
