NeMLA 2021: Philadelphia, PA. March 11-14, 2021

As we move forward in this new normal, there is an urgent need, at both national and global levels, for critical investigations into the humanistic, scientific, and social scientific impacts of the coronavirus, both societally and in academia. It’s possible, likely even, that your current research and teaching focuses are not directly related to epidemiology. Regardless, your research and/or teaching has undoubtedly been affected by the pandemic. Now is a key moment to lean into the many robust opportunities for teaching developments and enhancements.

Teaching Popular Culture in Intermediate Language Courses

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

In the recent years, foreign language teaching has advocated for an increasingly intermedial and interdisciplinary approach, one that enables instructors to expand course materials and integrate a wide array of popular and current cultural products. Advanced courses in literature and culture can develop curricula that more liberally incorporate popular culture into teaching. Yet intermediate courses must combine cultural components with the introduction or the review of grammar structures. This session seeks contributions that address the following: What are the challenges of transitioning from grammar-based to culture-based instruction in intermediate language classes?

As Aisha Ahmad boldly states in her recent Chronicle piece on academic productivity during the COVID-19 pandemic, “the world is our work.” An accurate way to contextualize the current moment among professional academics, this statement is equally at the core of how we have articulated the mission of our writing courses for the better part of two decades.

Critical Thinking and Writing in the Age of Pandemics

Double Helix invites Reports from the Field and scholarly Notes related to the effects of coronavirus—campus closures, social distancing, courses moved online, etc.—on pedagogy related to critical thinking and writing.

*Reports from the Field (2,500 to 5,000 words) focus more exclusively on specific pedagogical practices and are less invested in theory than Research Articles. They address institutional programs and initiatives, course and assignment design, assessment, instructor response, and readings of student work. Their modest length provides readers with an opportunity to learn quickly about a new practice and its implementation.

Learning With Animals: Anthropomorphization and the Animal Mind

updated: 
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 10:46am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While it is considered dubious to anthropomorphize animals to learn about them, learning with animals asks scholars to consider both animal and human ways of being and knowing, as well as where those epistemologies might overlap or diverge. Attempting to learn with animals requires consideration of the value of anthropomorphization. Drawing on the burgeoning field of animal studies, we invite literary scholars to consider how literature imagines animals and their ways of being and knowing—whether alternate or familiar.

Rethinking Innovation: Practices of Care and Maintenance in DH Scholarship and Pedagogy

updated: 
Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 10:33am
NEMLA 2021 (Philadelphia, PA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.

Supporting Multilingual Writers: Hands-on Strategies and Conversations

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

With internationalization of higher education and recent student demographics changes, multilingual students are no longer “contained” in ESL programs (Matsuda, 2006; Poe & Zhang-Wu, forthcoming). Many of multilingual students matriculate directly into mainstream writing classes, highlighting the importance of linguistically responsive instruction at the tertiary level (Gallagher & Haan, 2018). This awareness is especially crucial for faculty in college writing programs because of their vast reach of instructional impact. Despite this need, college writing faculty often have limited training in supporting multilingual students (Atkinson et al., 2015; CCCC Statement on Second Language Writing and Writers, 2014).
