Panel: "Fiction as Pedagogy"
Northeast Modern Language Association 2014 Convention (April 3-6, 2014 in Harrisburg, PA)
This panel seeks papers that examine the use of fictional narratives as pedagogical practice in diverse disciplines within undergraduate curriculum. We are particularly interested in papers that examine fiction as a means to achieve non-literary outcomes, either within or outside of the traditional literature classroom. We welcome theoretical or research-based explorations of the subject as well as papers that draw from specific pedagogical projects in the undergraduate classroom. Possible topics include but are not limited to: empathy and pedagogy, narrative medicine in the undergraduate classroom, developing ethics through literature, literature and citizenship, incorporating fiction into the non-literature classroom, and/or interdisciplinary teaching praxes.
Email 250-500 word abstracts and all inquiries to Rosemary Weatherston (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline: September 30, 2013
Please include with your abstract your name, position, and affiliation, email address, postal address, telephone number, and A/V requirements, if any.
