Recent critical focus on media and technology maps efforts to create a dynamic classroom that at its best enriches the teaching and learning at the university. But the long-standing interest in media as a means to reach students and enhance delivery also points to an absence in current scholarship, which has not been attentive to that same media as content in the humanities classroom.

Recent reports reveal that the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, particularly among low-income, rural, and African American women (NPR, 2017). Changes to the Supreme Court endanger the viability of Roe v. Wade. In Iowa, a judge threatens to ban nearly all abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (NPR, 2018). In Wisconsin, the state legislature rejects the repeal of the “cocaine mom law,” which opponents argue forces undue medical care on pregnant women (Reuters, 2017). These reproductive threats are not limited to only women’s rights.

The University of British Columbia’s annual English Graduate Conference cordially invites submissions under the themes of Disruption, Resistance, and Resilience.

In the wake of years of political, social, and ecological crises that have disrupted, disoriented, and displaced populations across the globe, modes of resistance and resilience have emerged to confront the disarray. From the rise of Trump and “fake news” to the latest IPCC report on the impending irrevocability of climate change, humanities studies and art practices have stepped up to the challenge to revolutionize their age-old roles of disruption and resilience-making on a much larger global stage.

MLA 2020: "Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond," Special Session

How does early modern literature portray the resilience of women or other marginalized groups in times of crisis? What strength or power is found in resilience? Is resilience similar to #resist? How can we understand resilience within feminist criticism, critical race theory, postcolonialism, or other methodologies? How does resilience change our reading (or performance) of a text, and can we begin to theorize the way resilience functions in the early modern world? All texts from the early modern world and all methodologies welcome.
