Art & Action: Literary Authorship, Politics, and Celebrity Culture

updated: 
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 1:18pm
The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 29, 2019

Writers and writers’ organisations have a long history of using their public standing and cultural capital to promote causes that transcend the literary sphere, from abolition and gender equality to free expression, anti-war agitation, and environmental issues. This two-day conference explores the intersections of authorship, politics, activism, and literary celebrity across historical periods, literatures, and media. It examines the forms and impact of authorial field migrations between literature and politics and the ways in which they are situated within, and shaped by, structural frameworks that include academic institutions, prize-giving bodies, publishing industries, and literary celebrity culture.

This session will focus on Samuel Beckett, the preeminent advocate for the clown.

Teaching Popular Culture in Intermediate Italian - ROUNDTABLE

updated: 
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 1:07pm
NeMLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

In the recent years, foreign language teaching has advocated for an increasingly intermedial and interdisciplinary approach, one that enables instructors to expand course materials and integrate a wide array of popular and current cultural products. Advanced courses in Italian literature and culture can develop curricula that more liberally incorporate popular culture into teaching. Yet intermediate courses must combine cultural components with the introduction or the review of grammar structures. This session seeks contributions that address the following: What are the challenges of transitioning from grammar-based to culture-based instruction in intermediate language classes?

French Religious Spaces, Rhetoric, and Identity: 1534-1790

 

How did religious spaces and their regulation in France between 1534 and 1790 shape religious rhetoric and identities? How did the legacies or privation of these spaces inform or define the identities of French missionaries in the colonies, or of French-speaking religious communities in exile? What was the relationship between private and public spaces and religious identities?

Teaching and Engaging Shakespeare in the Classroom (NeMLA 2020, roundtable)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 1:01pm
John F. Maune / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

More than 400 years after his death Shakespeare is still taught in western universities and throughout the world. The number of published books related to his works as well as similarly devoted scholarly conferences seem to increase yearly. This means that what and how to approach teaching Shakespeare is not stagnant as might be imagined, but rather is expanding. The number of plays attributed to Shakespeare have seen some fluctuations, but the theory and scholarly research applied to pinch and prod his works continue to produce new stimulating insights. This gives the teacher more options on what to include in their lessons and by necessity, what to exclude. It is no easy choice deciding what to focus on in the classroom.
