CFP: How to Use Literature in the Italian Language Class (NeMLA Italian Studies Volume XLI)
Posted Tuesday, November 27, 2018
NeMLA Italian Studies, the refereed journal published by NeMLA's Italian section under the sponsorship of NeMLA and The College of New Jersey, has a call for papers for Volume XLI, "How to Use Literature in the Italian Language Class."
The use of literature in language classes can be considered as one of the most effective way to teach language and culture. In this call for papers the editors welcome original contributions that investigate the relevance of the use of literary-based input for teaching and learning Italian language and culture, and highlight strategies educators can use to effectively engage students through literature in the classroom. Preferred contributions should address all levels of Italian courses, particularly the beginning and intermediate ones.
Submissions should not exceed 5,000 words (including notes and bibliography) and can be either in English or Italian (with preference given to English). Authors must comply with the MLA bibliographic standards for citations and documents of source. Contributors should send their manuscripts together with a 300-word abstract and 50-word bio and CV to the editors by June 30, 2019 with the subject line "NIS VOLUME XLI" to (please include all in email) Paola Nastri (email@example.com), Paola Quadrini (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Simona Wright (email@example.com).
