>CALL FOR PAPERS
>"PLANNED SESSIONS" ON GERMAN STUDIES -
>POST-SECONDARY LEVEL
>2006 AATG CONFERENCE
>NASHVILLE, TN
>November 16 - 19
>
>Please note: Send short abstracts of 
>papers/talks to session organizers (see e-mail 
>addresses below) by February 6!!
>
>Title:	Educators, Love, Principles, Sugar, and 
>More: Award-winning German Films of 2004 and 2005
>
>Session Organizer: Margit M. Sinka, Clemson University, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: Though a discussion panel titled "What 
>I hate about German films" strongly resonated 
>with the public at the 2004 Berlinale, there is 
>no longer any doubt that a major shift has 
>occurred in evaluations of very recent German 
>films: praise now far eclipses disparaging 
>comments. Several of the most recent films have 
>even garnered national and/or international 
>recognition. What is distinct about these 
>films-substantively, filmically?  Proposals 
>should focus on an award-winning film from 2004 
>or 2005 (e.g., Alles auf Zucker; Die fetten 
>Jahre sind vorbei; Gegen die Wand;  Sophie 
>Scholl-die letzten Tage; Willenbrock).
>
>
>Title:	Teaching '68
>
>Abstract:  In Germany the public figure who has 
>done the most to remind us of the "presence" of 
>1968 is undoubtedly former foreign minister 
>Joschka Fischer. The public response to the 
>Fischer "scandals" ultimately revealed an 
>astonishingly positive view of '68 (as compared 
>to this country, for example), and evoked 
>further reassessments of this all important 
>period of New Left activism. This panel explores 
>the challenges of teaching "1968" -both the 
>bygone era as well as its contemporary 
>renaissance in recent books and film. Panelists 
>will offer analysis as well as concrete examples 
>from their research and teaching.
>
>Session organizer: William Collins Donahue, Duke 
>University, [log in to unmask]
>
>Title:	Beyond Mountains, Meadows, and Mozart: 
>Austrian Culture and/in Globalization
>
>Session Organizer: Gundolf Graml, Bucknell University, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: When Austrian cultural production is 
>not subsumed under the umbrella of German 
>culture, its representation in high school and 
>college classrooms often highlights the 
>country's alleged detachment from international 
>developments. Depending on one's point of view, 
>Austrian culture then mirrors a dangerously 
>reactionary cultural homogeneity (i.e. J÷rg 
>Haider's Austria), or a utopian refuge from the 
>turmoils of globalization (i.e. The Sound of 
>Music's Austria). In order to complicate the 
>picture, this session invites papers from all 
>disciplines that analyze how contemporary 
>culture and cultural production from and about 
>Austria-in literature, film, electronic media, 
>architecture, etc.-is influenced by, resists, 
>and shapes developments commonly subsumed under 
>the term globalization.
>
>
>Title:	Identifying Students with Learning 
>Difficulties in the L2 Classroom and Employing 
>Strategies to Enhance their Success
>
>Session Organizer: Sharon M. DiFino, University of Florida, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: How can we recognize the L2 challenged 
>student before it is too late? This panel will 
>address issues concerning the challenged 
>language learner in L2 programs. It will take a 
>close look at the different kinds of challenged 
>learners (the documented learning disabled 
>student such as in the case of dyslexia, the 
>problematic student whose poor learning skills 
>affect performance as well as the undocumented 
>language learning impaired student) and their 
>struggle fulfilling the foreign language 
>requirement at the college/university level. 
>This panel will provide language instructors, 
>language program directors as well as TA 
>Supervisors with important information 
>(alternative strategies as well as possible 
>solutions to dealing with the challenged 
>language learner) that is not found in 
>conventional methodology textbooks.
>
>
>Title:	Integrating Philosophical Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom
>
>Session Organizer: Lisa Marie Anderson, Duke University, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: How do we and should we incorporate 
>the rich philosophical tradition in German 
>cultural history into our undergraduate 
>curriculum? What role can philosophical texts 
>play in the beginning and/or intermediate 
>language classroom? In our literature and 
>culture surveys? In advanced seminars? In other 
>settings? What pedagogical approaches guide 
>students toward optimal engagement with 
>philosophical texts and concepts often 
>stereotypically perceived as "too difficult" in 
>the target language? This session invites 
>presentations by contributors who have developed 
>effective models for teaching the work of 
>relevant thinkers.
>
>
>Title:	German Drama as Text and Performance in the Academic Setting
>
>Session Organizer: Hal H. Rennert, University of 
>Florida, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: This panel seeks to present a number 
>of different creative approaches to the teaching 
>and performance of German drama, dealing with 
>both contemporary plays and playwrights - 
>Handke, Strau▀, Jelinek, Widmer - as well as 
>with examples of modern and older classics. 
>Ideally, presentations would deal with 
>cooperative ventures of departments of theater 
>and German Studies. Multi-media approaches to 
>the problem of text and performance would also 
>be very welcome.
>
>
>Title:	Pop-Literatur: Cause for Consternation or Celebration?
>
>Session Organizer: Maggie McCarthy, Davidson College, [log in to unmask]
>
>Abstract: This panel will examine claims 
>surrounding Pop-Literatur - made by its authors 
>and critics - and whether the texts themselves 
>bear them out.  Is it possible to read a 
>historical consciousness between the lines of 
>tales about superficial protagonists?  When are 
>allusions to pop music subversive and when 
>simply pleasant background sounds?  Despite 
>seeming apoliticism, when do Pop-Literatur texts 
>openly or inadvertently tap into a longer 
>tradition of Gesinnungsliteratur?  How do they 
>figure contemporary gender relations in Germany? 
>Panelists are also invited to share pedagogical 
>techniques for teaching these texts, 
>specifically the extent to which they are German 
>literary manifestations and/or need 
>contextualizing in a larger global context.
>
>***There are also two "planned sessions" which 
>do not include a call for papers:
>- A Women in German sponsored panel on 
>Conceptions of Childhood and Young Womanhood
>- A discussion of a comprehensive new teaching 
>guide, German Culture through Film (Focus 
>Publishing 2005)
>
>For further information on submissions for 
>"planned sessions" and for other sessions, 
>please refer to "annual meeting on the AATG 
>website: www.aatg.org
