George Lakoff and Mark Johnson introduced conceptual metaphor theory (CMT), arguing that human conceptual system is fundamentally metaphorical. More recently, Gilles Fauconnier and Mark Turner pointed out the limitation of CMT, that is, the inability to explain emergent meaning, and introduced conceptual integration (or blending) theory (CBT), arguing that by blending, humans improve creation and imagination. Ever since, both CMT and CBT have been regarded as a significant tool for analyzing literary works. However, it has been criticized that previous studies have focused on monomodal literature such as poems and novels. If metaphor and blend are essential mechanism of human cognitive system, they should be applied to multimodal literature which combines image and text, such as graphic novels. This paper sheds light on the way of analysis a graphic novel, proposing that graphic novels can be analyzed more profoundly by employing CMT and CBT. In order to prove the validity of CMT and CBT, the paper provides an outline of both theories and applies them to the graphic novel New Kid. In particular, this paper attempts to cognitively analyze a variety aspects of racism represented in the work and the growth process of Jordan, the black protagonist who overcomes adversities caused by racism, considering the interactions between texts and images.

This paper aims to examine some limitations of today’s English poetry classes and suggest more responsive ways of teaching poetry to college-level students in Korea. The number of English poetry classes in Korean universities has been rapidly decreasing because of students' low interest in literature and teachers' unchallenging poetry lessons. This research points out major weaknesses of previous strategies for teaching poetry and proposes the Task-Based Learning (TBL) method using digital texts to reinvigorate poetry classes. Digital texts, which are widely spreading through IT devices, are more responsive to shifting social trends and students' interests. The TBL method, which emphasizes student-centered learning through active class participation, motivates students to think creatively and independently. The TBL method and digital texts incorporated in English poetry classes are creative ways to encourage students' interests in poetry in the changing educational environment of our times.

Sylvia Plath’s poems, such as “Daddy,” have been interpreted as the revelation of her rage against her father figure (including Ted Hughes). However, it is evident that the speaker’s hostility and anger in several of her poems are not directed at her father, but at her mother. The speaker reveals anger and hostility towards the threatening mother. In her journals, Plath also describes her mother as “a mother’s clutch,” or even “the vampire.” This paper will explore the reasons for the speaker’s (Plath’s) hostility and hatred, using Melanie Klein’s notion of the relationship between a mother and an infant. Klein argues that in “paranoid-schizoid position” (1-3 months), the infant projects its own aggression to the bad object if the mother does not feed her child. In the depressive position (after 4 months), the infant feels guilt and anxiety for the damage it has inflicted on its mother in the early position, and accepts its mother as “a good and complete object.” In “Moon and Yew Tree,” “Disquieting Muses” and “Medusa,” the speaker is respectively obsessed with “persecutory anxiety” for the threatening mother figure. The speaker never enters the “depressive position” in which she is able to experience feelings of guilt or “depressive anxiety” for the hatred for her mother. (Hanbat National University)

This paper discusses a way of using James Joyce’s The Dubliners in literature classes of the English Education Department. It is a practical discussion of using the text rather than a theoretical approach that delves into its literary or philosophical values. The literature classes of English education should satisfy the needs of students regarding the national teacher qualification exam as well as achieve their fundamental purpose of enhancing students’ literary knowledge. For these somewhat contrasting purposes, The Dubliners offers a great means that helps students improve both their practical English ability and their literary appreciation capacity. Words and sentence structures are challengeable and not overwhelming in their difficulty; each episode is short enough for students to feel comfortable, and what is better all the episodes are similarly composed in their atmosphere and symbolism and thus coherent as if they are chapters of one long novel. They also offer motives by which students can think about themselves and society. Students may be asked to read one or two episodes, but it is advisable to read all episodes in one semester for the practice of language learning and literature appreciation.

The purpose of this paper is to critically comment on the effective use of image schema in the EFL classroom, and to suggest an alternative way to teach polysemous words and grammatical relations. This study is based on literature review research. Currently, most literature relevant to the use of image schemas in the EFL classroom indicates that the use of pictorial or graphic representations of image schemas successfully helps low intermediate EFL college students to understand polysemous words and grammatical relations. However, considering that this imposes a learning burden and is time consuming, the argument cannot be supported. The relevant theoretical literature has been reviewed in terms of the definition of image schemas and the relationship between image schemas and language acquisition. This says that image schema is an abstract concept, not an image. Considering that image schemas are embodied prelinguistic structures, it is known that image schemas start very early and that they are already acquired. The findings of the paper implicitly point out that teaching image schemas is not necessary in the EFL classroom and that context-dependent approaches may be enough to teach polysemous words and grammatical relations.

Since World Health Organization (WHO) had confirmed Coronavirus as pandemic, rapid changes are occurred in almost all aspects of our lives including social, economic, political and cultural. Among them, educational environments are one of the most impacted areas. After the COVID-19 pandemic, the mode or delivery of class was forced to be online (either synchronous or asynchronous) and almost all universities in Korea offer courses via online. In order to improve the quality of online class, the present study investigated students’ perceptions on synchronous online class. A total of 33 EFL students, enrolled in an English elective course in a private university in Korea, participated. Data were collected from survey, students’ log, interview and open-ended questionnaire. The classes were conducted via ZOOM for 15 weeks, and the students participated online discussions with students from six Asian universities using Skype live session for four weeks (week 8 to 10). Overall, students were satisfied with the synchronous interaction and feedback during ZOOM class. However, they were not satisfied with the online discussion session via Skype. The following implications can be elicited from the study. First, instructors need to offer various IT platforms in online discussion class. Second, in-depth orientation to the use of the platform is necessary for learners’ understanding. (Hannam University · The University of Queensland)

This paper examines the theoretical backgrounds related to generative literature including its history, definition, authorship and copyright, and experience of readers, which is readership. The paper elaborates how the definitions of a word, robot have changed as time goes by as well as the perception of humans on that has. It also presents teaching methods of digital humanities pedagogy about how to utilize certain web sites or digital tools such as Google Spreadsheet, Twitter, Plot Generator and so on. Students are asked to make their own digital literary works. Through these class activities, college students can generate literary works automatically as well as enhance digital literacy. To study artificial intelligence in the field of literature can help one to contemplate what human nature is, how the future of literature will be developed and how AI robots and humans will co-exist or not.

This paper provides an overview of interpreting madness using Shakespeare’s and Cervantes’s works. The time when Shakespeare and Cervantes were active was a time of madness where chaos and change coexist. According to a study by Michel Foucault, madness was not considered a disease in ancient times, but rather a mystical phenomenon that approached God and showed origin, and through various forms during the Renaissance, ‘madness’ was also seen as a positive factor. He thought that madness could pursue a fantastic truth that could not be proved by science or rational logic, and that there were some cases of genius through madness. Two genius writers, Shakespeare and Cervantes, show not only ghostly and magical supernatural phenomena, but also the wandering of the crazed characters in their works, Hamlet and Don Quite. Through their works, they unleashed madness, a festive and utopian energy, in the lives of the people oppressed by the ruling forces and norms. Two writers stimulated real-life readers and made them see the world from a new perspective. Shakespeare and Cervantes opened the door to the Renaissance period through madness, implementing the value of human liberation from restraint and leading the great change of ‘human discovery.’ (Daejeon Health Institute of Technology)

This paper is to explore the impacts of the reproductive technologies on women in Caryl Churchill’s A Number. Some feminists believe that reproduction is the source of women’s oppressions in a patriarchal society so they insist that women can free from pregnancy, childbirth, and child rearing by means of the development of the artificial reproductive technologies. However, in A Number, new genetic engineering such as cloning does not free women from the physical demands of reprod20uctions but exploits women’s bodies and it undermines women’s right to control their reproduction and their motherhood. Salter is in an attempt to play God and takes over his biological son and human clone’s bodies for his use. Though Churchill presents a dystopia where women and children are still subjugated to a patriarchal ideology, she offers an insight on post human who offers a possibility to blur the boundaries between human and nonhuman and build multi-species companions.

The purpose of this study is to investigate (1) the aspect of the correlation among subcategories of English listening anxiety and (2) the cause and effect relation among subcategories of listening anxiety based on listening achievement. The listening anxiety of 80 participants was measured by a questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS program. The findings of the study are as follows: First, most of the sub-elements of listening anxiety correlate with one another in both high-level and low-level groups divided based on TOEIC achievement with the coefficient of correlation associated with test anxiety highest. Second, it has also been found that the lack of confidence in listening has the most negative influence on entire listening anxiety in higher achievement group while the anxiety dealing with input and test anxiety is the main cause that contributes to the whole listening anxiety in low achievement group. The implication of this search is that the teachers and students should be aware that subcategories of listening anxiety correlate with one another as well as have great deal of negative influence on listening process. Therefore, when a listening class is organized, the ways to maximize the confidence in listening and minimize the test anxiety should be taken into account. (Mokwon University)
