The aim of this panel is to explore the potential of project-based teaching and learning as a way of increasing students’ proficiency and sensitivity to language and culture. More specifically, it proposes to reflect on the ways in which individual and group projects (such as research projects, translations, interviews, events programming, etc.) can help students obtain a better understanding of French language and society by developing their translingual and transcultural skills.

Global Status of Women and Girls

Understanding Women’s Lives and Resistance in the Past and Present
Seeking papers for a panel at ACLA 2019, submit through ACLA portal: https://www.acla.org/literary-history-capitalism
If literary scholars have traditionally wielded theory, not least the legacies of ideology critique, to relate cultural production to transformations in the capitalist lifeworld, historians have long avoided political economy as a core analytic in favor of concepts like “markets” and “societies.” Since the 2008 financial crisis, historians have drawn on previous work in the areas of social, economic, business, legal, and labor history, to develop a new subfield, “history of capitalism.”

Yugoslavia’s ties with German-speaking countries are deeply rooted in history. From the Austro-Hungarian Empire, through to the Gastarbeiter program of the 1960s and 1970s, various historical political connections account for why a great number of Yugoslavs live in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland today. In more recent times, the geographical proximity of German-speaking countries made these an accessible safe haven for refugees fleeing Yugoslavia during the wars of the 1990s. To this day, the Yugoslav Wars (1991-2001) remain the most brutal and violent conflict in post-1945 Europe. Following the cessation of violence in the Balkans, many of these refugees returned home, while others chose to stay in their new, adoptive homeland.
