"Teaching the Tough Texts," South Central College English Association at SCMLA 2010 (October 28-30)
The South Central College English Association welcomes proposals for 20-minute presentations to be delivered at the 2010 SCMLA Convention (October 28-30) in Fort Worth, TX. Our session is entitled "Teaching the Tough Texts," and we are especially interested in presenters who will share strategies for introducing structurally complex or controversial writings to undergraduates. For example, some panelists might offer guidance on leading students through the labyrinthine prose of Henry James or Homi Bhabha. Others might discuss how to teach novels such as Twain's HUCKLEBERRY FINN or Ellis's AMERICAN PSYCHO, books that many readers have, for various reasons, deemed offensive.

had I art,
Impregnable my fortress,

And since myself attacked me,
how have I peace,
except by subjugation consciousness,
And since we are mutual monarch,

In The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, Freud explains that "the border-line between the nervous, normal, and abnormal states is indistinct." Consequently, while phenomena such as forgetting, slips of the tongue, and other "mistakes" are generally seen by society as normal, one could argue that they are in fact the foundation for more menacing psychopathologies like paranoia, schizophrenia, personality disorders, or even homicidal behavior.

Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies Vol. 2 (3) 2010

The events that occurred in Pakistan in 1971 go by many names: the Indo-Pakistan War, the Liberation War of Bangladesh, and the Pakistani Civil War, to list a few. Along with this proliferation of signifiers, Bangladeshi perspectives on the conflict that resulted in that country's independence are a commonplace in scholarly arenas. Pakistani views on that year, however, have received curiously little critical and scholarly attention.
