deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 8, 2016

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.

Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural studies or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

Recent events in Brussels, Pakistan, France (to name but a few places), demand the attention of the world. But, how does an academic organization such as NeMLA engage in discourse abut such violence without appearing to glorify or condone such acts?

The panel is dedicated to the relationship between sport and Italian literature. How is sport portrayed in Italian literature? How does it function within a literary work? Is sport employed only as metaphors and to add a touch of color, or does it have deeper meanings? What can it tell us about an author? Papers on literary and artistic aspects of sport in journalism or various media, as well as on sport and the visual arts, cinema, etc., are welcome.

 

Please submit your abstract online by September 30, 2016:
