Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity in Contemporary Higher Education
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2017

The editor is seeking papers that critique cases of inequity, marginalization and dissonance in higher education settings.  With current sociological and political debates relying on perception as the basis for determining the direction of governance, it is increasingly important that educators at all levels are reminded of the powerful impact of policy. The goal of the text is to influence future leaders who will emerge from the ranks of college and university educated individuals to possess a working knowledge of structuration theory (Giddens, 1984) and apply it toward socially just goals in the higher education setting and beyond.

Critical Approaches for Re-Conceptualizing the Avant-Garde

An “Aesthetic Apartheid” occurs when the artistic innovations of a minoritized group are neglected due to their difference. [1] The focus on white and western innovations in literature have created the assumption that non-white avant-garde poetry, "however singular its ‘voice’ is not ‘formally innovative’.”[2] Examples of this bias are evident in monographs about the avant-garde, in which people of color are far too often excluded. Dorothy Wang writes that “anyone who has spent time in avant-garde poetry/and or critical circles in the States [….] knows that these circles are overwhelmingly unpigmented.”[3]

AFROCENTRICITY IN VISIONARY CONVERSATION WITH BLACK/AFRICAN RADICAL INTELLECTUALISM AND AFRO-FUTURISM

Friday and Saturday, October 20 & 21, 2017

The Wyndham Historic District

Philadelphia, PA

The African world is thriving in spite of bearing witness to dystopic and threatening political, social, and cultural change and upheaval.  Society is responding to reassertions of supremacist thought, ethos, insanity, and regression, and there is a caution to avoid a pessimist trap.  In challenging chronophobia, known as a fear of the future, African people continue to maintain and pursue not only optimum liberation but also a technological awareness updated from past ingenuity to present creative consciousness.  

Room of One's Own: Writing Interiors (Panel)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 6:09pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Writers, and women writers in particular, long for space to write for many reasons. Whether writers wish to be away from the burden of children or partners, or whether they simply seek (a) room wherein the solitary act of writing can be accomplished, physical and psychological spaces matter. This session seeks to examine literary interiors, such as depictions of home design, architecture, furniture, the study, the bedroom, or the kitchen from different cultural and linguistic perspectives. We also seek to analyze writers' interiors metaphorically, in order to explore what is happening within the writer and their protagonists' minds and bodies in their homes.
