Rethinking “Alternative Worlds”: Emerging in the Here and Now of Emergency

deadline for submissions:

Our panel seeks to make a slight pivot on the opening provocation of this year’s conference theme, “States of Emergence,” that “our sense of crisis must be thought alongside our constant commitment to challenging the calamities that beset us and to producing alternative—indeed better—worlds.” Rather than thinking of our sense of crisis and our commitment to challenging calamities as two things we might put alongside each other, what happens if our commitment to challenging calamities emerges precisely within, even as, our sense of crisis?

CFP for SSAWW 2018: “Resistance and Recovery through Collaborative Teaching Practices”

updated: 
Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - 4:15pm
Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 9, 2018

In an introduction to a 2017 special issue of American Literature, Carol Batker, Eden Osucha, and Augusta Rohrbach ask how our current political moment gives rise to new questions about the role of teaching and scholarship in American literary studies. The issue calls for the radical potential of intertwined scholarship and teaching that makes literary studies necessary to the work of unmasking the asymmetrical relations of power that persist in the academy. In response, our roundtable proposes an examination of feminist pedagogy practices, or a pedagogy that privileges collaboration and resists canonical syllabi to engage students in interdisciplinary projects of recovery and resistance.

Conference English Literature in the World: From Manuscript to Digital (May 7-10, Lisbon, Portugal)

English Literature has been able to reinvent itself along new pathways, from the age of the manuscript to the digital era. In the last decades, the digital technology has changed the paradigms involving both the reading strategies and the analysis of literary texts: among others, the relation between writer and reader; the publication in digital platforms; “distant reading”; the exploration of the image; the abundance of information; the access to the original texts. This enormous change has originated an interdisciplinary reevaluation of many of the previous paths, as well as the launching of new focuses of reflection.
