In summer of 2017, Wonder Woman challenged cultural assumptions of box office superheroes and positioned motherhood as an integral part of a feminist resistance. But motherhood as an act of resistance began long before Wonder Woman’s re-introduction to mainstream pop culture. Motherhood is often used as a rhetorical strategy in anti-violence movements, but motherhood is also used to justify violence as resistance. This panel invites submissions that consider the role of the mother as central to individual, local, national, and global activisms and resistance movements in literature, media portrayals, online communities, grassroot campaigns and more.

Excellence, Innovation and Ingenuity in Honors Education (2018)
Call for chapter proposals (contracted book).
Many Honors Colleges in the US are seeking to be innovative, are seeking to map honors education onto the 21st Century. Not all truly succeed. Perhaps it is a failure of vision, perhaps a failure of leadership, or perhaps it is that true innovation means a rare combination of national and global understanding and experience, combined with wider experiences in many fields of human endeavor that make up a true honors experience. A new project will assist in exploring the possibilities for honors education!

ROUNDTABLE SESSION: Scaling All Barriers: De-Marginalizing Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies Through Writing Opportunities Across Disciplines
Per William Faulkner’s famous phrase, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” This is to say that the forms of social inequality that characterize contemporary life and drive contemporary activism are rooted in long histories of violence. Yet over time, as these histories extend not only throughout individual lives but also across generations, they can become so naturalized that they run the risk of being functionally invisible.

One of the greatest challenges in teaching online is developing meaningful student interaction. In evaluations of online classes, students consistently indicate that student/teacher interaction and student/student interaction can be improved. How do we either go beyond the traditional online tools such as the discussion board or extend those online tools to increase the interaction and sense of community in an online course? This roundtable seeks 10 minute presentations that highlight innovative projects to build connections among students, instructor, and content in the dislocated space of the online classroom. Please submit 250 word proposals by June 8, 2018, to Rich Hancuff, firstname.lastname@example.org.

The importance of religion in contemporary debates ranging from nationalism to its place in the public sphere is exceedingly being felt. Nations -- referred to as imagined communities (c.f. Anderson) -- speak to the profound need for both legitimacy and belonging(ness), often articulated through one’s religious vis-a-vis ethnic identities in the modern world. This volume will explore this issue by focusing on the relationships between religion, geo-politics and the articulation of nationalism in the context of South Asia.
