Silence in L2 writing classrooms: Global Perspectives

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 9:59pm
University of New Mexico
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Students are often silent in classes. How do teachers interpret silence from students? How do students interpret silence from the teachers? Why do students’ choose to be silent in the classroom? Are teachers aware that students are choosing to be silent? Through the lens of languaging, silence is a linguistic/language device that is less addressed in the research. Like languaging, the use of silence in classrooms can be perceived as “creative and critical use of linguistic resources to mediate cognitively complex activities (Garcia & Wei, 2014, p. 10). Because second language (L2) writers have multiple languages in their linguistic repertoires, silence is one of the strategies that has been misinterpreted by many instructors.

Art(ist)s in Resistance, Nov. 6-8, 2019

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 4:56am
University of Le Mans and Angers
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 5, 2019

From abolitionist literature to antiwar painting, from documentary photography to committed filmmaking, the arts have been tools of resistance to dominant ideologies. Artistic practices provide people with a means of dissent in democratic and/or authoritarian societies. Under the cover of visual or poetic metaphors, artists imagine alternative realities that can be read as arts of resistance. The world has witnessed in the postwar era a proliferation of artistic trends, a constant re-evaluation of what constitutes a work of art, a multiplicity of experimentations and explorations, not to mention an ever-increasing diversity of media available to express the artist’s ideas.

Not Just Clowning Around: Blackface Yesterday and Today

updated: 
Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 11:48pm
PAMLA November 14-17, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

As recent events in Virginia demonstrated, blackface minstrelsy is far from being a thing of the past. Despite its taboo status and overtly racist underpinnings, blackface continues to happen. In his seminal work on the phenomenon, Eric Lott argued that early blackface minstrelsy emerged out of the “intersection of slave culture and earlier blackface stage characters such as the…clown of English pantomime and the clown of the American circus.” What might this lineage tell us about the ongoing prevalence and relevance of blackface? This session invites proposals that consider and examine modern and past manifestations of blackface minstrelsy, its legacies, and its influence.
