Title
\n The Beneficial Effects of Technology-Based Social Reading in L2 Classes

Dr. Gabriela Zapata | Department of Hispanic Studies\n

Dr. Maybel Mesa | Providence College

Abstract
\n This work investigates the instructional benefits of the digital social reading application eComma for the comprehension and interpretation of authentic texts in intermediate second language (L2) Spanish classes in a university in the Southern United States. The study examines 44 students' collaborative work on two poems connected to the themes of the class's instructional units. Data are based on the analysis of the participants' digital annotations, and responses to a survey that probed into their opinions of eComma. The results show a similar number of student-generated comments on either lexical queries or contextual interpretations in both poems. However, there were differences in the kind of annotations that originated in each text. In addition, the findings suggest that working with eComma allowed students to develop their L2 reading performance, and it resulted in their collaborative construction of knowledge, which might have facilitated their interpretation process. In the survey responses, the participants identified various social and instructional benefits, even though they also reported some technical difficulties. Overall, the study mirrors the positive results reported in previous work, and it points to the effectiveness eComma for the implementation of the kind of comprehensive L2 practices currently recommended in the field of L2 pedagogy.

Keywords: Digital social reading, eComma, performance, interpretive mode, collaborative construction of knowledge, L2 Spanish university students\n

Abstract: 

\n The preservation of Beijing's historic residential neighborhoods is facing significant challenges brought by urban regeneration and real estate development. The establishment of community museum as both a tourist site for visitors and a civic center for the community is still a new concept in the 21st century China. Shijia Hutong Museum was the first of its kind in Beijing, built as part of the neighborhood conservation-planning project to promote hutong culture and heritage protection. Based on literature review, participant observation, and stakeholder interviews, this study examines the socio-cultural, political, and economic impacts of the museum on tourism and historic preservation, aiming to analyze its influence on local residents, tourists, government, and other stakeholders that were involved in the museum's founding and operation process.\n

Burns, Chair of the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Chicago, is a leading historian of Japan, whose long view of history identifying continuities and ruptures between the 'pre-modern' and 'modern' eras has fundamentally reshaped scholarly understanding of Japan's modern transformation.\n

\n In her lecture, "Human Rights, Biological Citizenship, and Reproductive Policy in Japan's Leprosy Sanitaria," Dr. Burns explores the process through which leprosy, as a stigmatized disease, functioned as an object of intense debate on the contested boundary of citizenship within the Japanese nation.\n

\n This lecture is supported by a Glasscock Notable Lecture Grant and the Center of Digital Humanities Research.\n

\n From Chortitza to Canada and the United States: The Post-World War II Immigration of Ethnic Germans\n

Abstract
Ethnic German immigration in the post-World War II era illustrates how organizations facilitated networks and influenced immigration patterns. Villagers from Chortitza, an ethnic German settlement located along the Dnieper River in Ukraine, demonstrates this trend. During World War II, villagers were at times both refugees and resettlers. After the war ended, most Mennonites from Chortitza immigrated to Canada whereas Chortitzans of other faiths predominantly immigrated to the United States. The explanation for this divide lies with organizations that directed immigrants to their destinations. The Mennonite Central Committee, Church World Service, and Lutheran World Federation were instrumental in lobbying governments, advocating for specific identities, and finding sponsors.\n

Title
\n "Social Media and the Ordinary: Affect, Aspiration, and Transformation in Contemporary China"\n

\n In this informal talk, Cara Wallis will present her research over the past four years: an expansive study of social media use in China through four case studies: (1) the affective dimensions of communicative empowerment among a group of middle-aged female domestic workers involved with an NGO-sponsored drama club in Beijing; (2) how uses of technology for economic production become the site for the reproduction and/or reconfiguration of gender hierarchies in rural China; (3) how a diverse group of young creatives who have migrated to Beijing use social media for informal learning, social networking, and curating their creative, yet precarious lives; and (4) how young feminists (and others interested in feminism) use social media to resist misogynist discourses and practices. These processes and practices speak to larger social, economic, and cultural transformations taking place in China.\n

It shows that violence not only exemplified deep socio-economic transformations at a particular historical moment\; it underscores community responses to such violence and traces its long-lasting legacy. This conference will mark the centennial of the Canales Investigation of 1919\, which exposed the violence committed by the Texas Rangers during the previous decade against the predominantly Texas Mexican border community. This is a two-day conference about the 1919 Canales Investigation and its legacies. The research presented by national and international experts in this field will be further expanded and featured in a scholarly edited volume prefaced by a historical introduction written and edited by NEH PI and Associate Professor of History Texas A&M\, Sonia Hernandez and NEH Co-PI and Professor of English at UT-Austin\, John Moran Gonzalez.\n\n Some of the worst racial violence in United States history took place along the United States-Mexican borderlands\, specifically in south Texas from 1910 to 1919. The dead included women and men\, the aged and the young\, long-time residents and recent arrivals. They were killed by strangers\, sometimes by neighbors\, some by vigilantes and other times at the hands of local law enforcement officers or members of the state's elite patrol\, the Texas Rangers.  Reverberations of Memory\, Violence\, and History reveals how these events that transpired along our nation's borders\, long viewed as peripheral\, were all but peripheral. What happened along the southern border was reflective of national processes involving ideologies about citizenship and civil rights\, themes that have received scholarly attention from a variety of scholars who have participated in Glasscock Humanities Center-sponsored events.\n\n This conference features cutting edge research on the topic of violence as well as the legacies for the Mexican American civil rights and larger civil rights movement\, that as the conference will show took shape much earlier than the 1960s and 1970s.

Abstract
\n This project examines the literary career of Nicholas Said, a Muslim man from Bornu (near Lake Chad in present-day northeastern Nigeria), who was enslaved in Africa, Europe, and Asia before arriving in the United States in 1860 as a freed person, where he volunteered for the 55th Massachusetts Regiment during the Civil War. This paper attempts to reconcile the popular appeal of Said's Americanness, which facilitated the publication of his autobiography in the Atlantic Monthly in 1867, with his text which has little to say about his Civil War service. Said's disidentification with the United States opens up space for him to inscribe himself more substantively as an African Muslim subject, which in turn productively disrupts the established formulations of nineteenth-century American literature.\n
