Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The recent wave of scholarly interest in comics and graphic novels has arrived in German Studies. Some of the most interesting work comments on the ways comic artists explore the formal, that is, visual means of their medium including aspects such as panel shapes, page design, and coloring. A topic that has not yet been at the center of scholarly attention lies at the very intersection between the visual and the non-visual. This panel looks at both the potency and limitations of the medium by analyzing how artists from the German-speaking world represent physical and mental phenomena that, by definition, go beyond the capacities of a visual medium. The panel invites papers which address, for example, the following questions:

Vernon Press call for chapter proposals
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 1, 2018

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Arthurian Legend in the 20th & 21st Centuries. The volume will be edited by Susan Austin, Associate Professor of English at Landmark College in Putney, VT.

 

Nostalgia for an imagined and glorious past has influenced the evolution of stories about King Arthur and his court for centuries.  According to the moods and needs of the period, new characters were added to demonstrate or question the excellence of these paragons, or to replace those who had perhaps become too human or simply gone out of style.  New plot motifs, such as the search for the grail and Lancelot’s love for Guinevere became part of the legend.

Immersive Identities: Measuring the Reality of Virtual Spaces

NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

This panel engages a debate surrounding virtual reality and immersive story telling: do subjects project their real selves into virtual worlds, or do they use them to experience alternative identities?

By closing experiential gaps between the virtual and corporal, immersive virtual spaces can be experienced as real. Accordingly, virtual reality and immersive story telling can encourage subjects to express their real social behaviors, emotions, or morals. Similarly, subjects often experience virtual worlds in this manner, despite the presence of fictive or fictional elements.

Roundtable 

In the 21st century classroom, whether students learn how to develop a variety of intellectual perspectives, acquire skills to manage social and civic responsibilities, or refine professional tools for their future career, diversity is an ever-present imperative. In order to support diversity in all its forms, the language curriculum should engage with LGBT issues in ways that reflect current social changes and issues and that question heterosexist norms and assumptions.

NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

In order to prepare globally-competent students with social responsibility and an understanding of current events, classroom content shifts toward communication, collaboration, and problem solving across cultural, racial, and linguistic boundaries. As these 21st century skills and aptitudes gain importance in a curriculum or course, where does this leave room for the more traditional francophone literature, language and even culture courses?

Some of those landscapes are fictional worlds inside the fiction (Ende’s Phantasia or Funke’s Ink World), others are real and yet not realistic (e.g.
