Deadline Extended: NeMLA 2018 Classics Today

Monday, October 2, 2017 - 9:53pm
Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The art, history, literature, and philosophy of ancient Greece and Rome serve as the foundation of Western civilization. While the Classics have had a tremendous influence on subsequent cultures, the academy frequently keeps the discipline of Classics separate from modern literatures and languages. Yet the Classics have always been an integral part of cultural productions and the university itself; the word “academy” even has its origins in Plato. This roundtable will explore the current state of Classics scholarship, focusing on Classics as an area of study as well as its place in contemporary academia. Possible approaches include:
· Defining the Classics

· Current research trends in Classics scholarship

Reading Deep: Reading Texts Closely

In the twentieth century, literary criticism took a turn from philology and historical approaches toward analyzing small, suggestive passages, using them as a microcosm that offered a fertile glimpse into the larger textual expanses of the text.  In the Soviet Union, this effort came to be denominated as Russian formalism; in France, the explication de texte; in the Anglophone world, the New Criticism practice of “close reading.”  In recent decades, this approach has fallen out of fashion, as politically motivated theoretical and critical modalities have become operative (cultural studies, post-colonialism, queer theory, etc.)  While these recent efforts surely constitute an enlargement of our knowledge and an advancement of our critical protocol

Teaching Poe and the World

Friday, December 15, 2017 - 10:56am
Poe Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

Poe’s global influence and affinities have been a mainstay of Poe studies for decades, and various literary critics have argued that his foreign admirers (especially his French advocates) have shaped our current understanding and appreciation of Poe. Few scholars, however, have written about how they teach Poe in global terms.

What is Feminism Now? Global Feminisms, Politics, and the Classroom Space NeMLA 2018

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 1:04pm
Melissa Tombro, SUNY - FIT, NeMLA Annual Conference 2018, Pittsburgh, April 12-15th
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 28, 2017

This panel seeks to interrogate approaches to the teaching feminist literature and constructions of identity in the classroom space post-election. Student attitudes toward and instructor approaches to feminist teaching practices and the teaching of feminism have been forced to the forefront since the campaign and US Presidential election in 2016. Global definitions of feminism and its scope have come into question, pushing discussions to revolve around what it truly means to champion human rights and navigate gender politics. This panel will look at how attitudes towards feminist identification have shifted in literature and classroom politics in reaction to a public rhetorical debate over its definitions and intents.
