Reports From Academic Moms on Life-hacking the Ph.D-Career-Kid Matrix  (Roundtable)Submit Abstract


A roundtable discussion on how women with kids manage and thrive in academia. Are women getting support on the road to becoming Dr. and Mom? Or are we ignoring: a chronic lack of mentorship; negative administrative policies; and even outdated, patriarchal, institutionalized expectations of who gets to succeed? Personal experiences good and bad are welcome, as are moms of all backgrounds, ages, and experiences. https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16122

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

As budget priorities and funding principles continue to shift in university administrations and government policies favoring the further advancement of STEM fields, one of the most salient, emerging strategies to bolster enrollment in foreign language and humanities courses has been to embrace technology in teaching both within the classroom and without. Indeed, the need to incorporate technology at the foundation of course offerings is evidenced in its frequent mention in course descriptions and even in announcements for new faculty and lecturer searches.

Based on its success at the 2016 AAIS conference, this roundtable will seek to explore again innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, culture, or literature. Of particular – but not exclusive – interest are methods that utilize digital resources (video games, websites, computer programs). What resources and genres make the most effective teaching tools? Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural and literary concepts can best be illustrated?

Please submit presentation proposals (in Italian or English) of no more than 250 words and a brief biographical blurb to:

NEMLA 2017 panel CFP--Literature, writing, and the Promise of the Public Humanities--Many humanists seize on the “public humanities” to address the public relevance of the humanities in general. Public humanities programs offer students experiential learning that will lead to a deeper knowledge of both their world and their subject matter. For educators, public work promises to “make a difference,” by having humanities learning engage directly with public needs. For departments, the public humanities offer a justification for their fields in an era of declining resources and public interest.

The Graphic Panel Review is an online journal that publishes original short comics, articles and materials regarding comic pedagogy, and articles about all facets of comic scholarship.

Overlooked, Forgotten, or Maligned: Bringing Minor Characters Into Focus

updated: 
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 - 6:04am
NeMLA 2017 - Baltimore, MD
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2015

This panel seeks to investigate how we can (re)read classic American novels when analyzing them via secondary/minor characters. For example, how does the town of Maycomb change when read through Jack Finch? Does Jordan Baker give us insight into The Great Gatsby that no other character provides? Secondary characters are often overlooked when teaching and/or researching classic American novels, and this panel seeks to remedy that problem. By exhuming the often maligned supporting cast, we can see classic novels with fresh eyes, deepening our understanding of canonical stories while illuminating new ways of teaching these novels to our students.

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.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

“[M]edievalism now features in hundreds of currently taught university and college-based courses, especially in English Literature departments across and beyond the English-speaking world...” writes Louise D’Arcens in the introduction to the new Cambridge Companion to Medievalism (2016). This session will explore the implications of teaching medieval studies through or alongside medievalism(s). How do students—many of whom are newly engaged with studies of medieval topics—perceive the distinction between medieval and medievalism? To what degree does medievalism affect/inflect non-literary studies of the Middle Ages (in history or art history courses, for example)?

The onset of autumn is a solemn reminder that the world lost August Wilson in October 2005.  It is also the harvest season--a time for taking stock of his life's work and for promoting new ways of analyzing, teaching, discussing, researching, and, ultimately, safeguarding the rich legacy that he bequeathed to us.

This much-anticipated AUGUST OCCASION and celebration, which also marks the August Wilson Society's 10th Anniversary, will feature an array of panels, roundtables, workshops, creative works, and performance pieces that test new theories and that introduce novel approaches to Wilson's art, his activism, and yet-undiscovered meaning in his ten-play American Century Cycle.

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

We invite participants to discuss how attitudes about race influence and challenge the classroom environment in American universities. Questions to consider: How does the current post-racial discourse influence discussions of race in historical and contemporary contexts? What pedagogical strategies have been successful? What has not worked? In what ways do both students and instructors contextualize race within the classroom and in the larger university setting?

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 5, 2016

Over the past few decades, undergraduate research has moved from an elective activity that engaged a handful of faculty members and students to a central part of the undergraduate experience at many colleges and universities. The Summer 2017 CUR Quarterly will examine how undergraduate research impacts the landscape of higher education of the future. How does current practice prepare students to be the faculty members of the future? How does the centrality of inquiry-based learning affect the notion of disciplinarity? How does undergraduate research evolve to include a focus on innovation and impact---i.e., turning research findings into applications that change lives?

Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature invites contributions for a special issue on “nonfiction for children and young adults.” While many children and teenagers prefer to read nonfiction for pleasure (from books of records to military history to sex education) the focus of research and writing about young readers skews extremely heavily towards fiction. Indeed Bookbird itself has not focused on nonfiction since 2003 and no winner or shortlisted candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen writing prize has ever been an author of nonfiction.

CHANGING ENGLISH: STUDIES IN CULTURE AND EDUCATION

 

After the success of the NWA hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton, the importance that NWA played in the emerging culture we knew then as hip-hop is crystal clear. Subsequently, it is also clear that this once-emerging culture is now the pulse for popular culture. At the same time, movies like Dope become critical in thinking about the rendering and (re)rendering of hip-hop in this new wave of popular culture. This viewpoint is evident by simply observing the following nexus of events:

Baltimore, Maryland, has been the home of several important African American authors, including Frederick Douglass and Frances E. W. Harper.  In addition to these major writers who influenced the emergence of African American protest literature of the tumultuous nineteenth century, there are several other significant writers of prose and poetry who have lived in the city and created African American literature. Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.
