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 literature and culture can develop curricula that more liberally incorporate popular culture into teaching. On the contrary, lower advanced and 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 language classes?

This special issue of Women’s Studies: an interdisciplinary journal invites submissions that address how women in contemporary Spain challenge the political system and claim space in the public sphere.

(Extended Deadline Oct. 15) NeMLA 2022: Sex in Literature After #MeToo

In recent years there has been increased attention to conversations concerning consent, sexual violence, and rape. The stories of survivors have been an important tool for informing the public about these issues and providing healing. First-hand nonfiction accounts of sexual violence like A Woman in Berlin, Know My Name, and Willow Weep for Me have helped to destigmatize conversations about rape and sexual assault and problematized mainstream understandings of these concepts. Novels like The Handmaid’s Tale have also been able to question what sex and pleasure could look like within a rape culture.

This panel will explore the varying visual representation of transgender people in film and television. Peter Lehman’s Running Scared: Masculinity and the Representation of the Male Body explains the visual shame of the male body and could also begin to understand the complexity of the transgender body. Lehman describes it as “men have managed to keep out of the glare, escaping from the relentlessness activity of sexual definitions” (6).  Newer shows like Sense8 and films like Hedwig and the Angry InchA Fantastic Woman, and The Danish Girl allow for characters that have visually and complex personalities along with their visual body. They explore trans struggles in storylines that do not end with death.
