Diasporas can be seen in contrast to "home" nations, but diasporas can also function as homes themselves for those who immigrate in that diasporic subjects may become at home with, and in, communities of movement and relocation, and define their identities by their shifting subject positions.

Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it." (2.2.76-79)

Academic Exchange Quarterly

We welcome manuscripts on teaching any historical subject, time period, or region. Here are some questions that may be addressed... other questions as well as proposals from diverse perspectives are encouraged.
1. What pedagogical or andragogical approaches should be used in teaching an undergraduate or graduate history class?
2. As our understanding of history and historical development changes, how should we adjust our teaching and learning facilitation methods to reflect these changes?
3. What types of methods work best at each level--high school, community college, undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate?

Writing Gender: When Science Meets Fiction, NeMLA, Boston, March 21-24, 2013

Monday, August 13, 2012 - 7:19pm
Angela Monsam, Fordham University

This panel will explore the intersection of scientific and literary discourses in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain and its impact on the formation of contemporary constructions of gender. I am especially interested in papers that examine the various ways in which writers of this period engaged with and, at times, adopted scientific rhetoric to comment on or challenge existing gender norms. Please send paper proposal and brief cv to Angela Monsam

MLA Session, "Deliver Us To Normal: Children's Literature and the Midwest" (Chicago 2014)

Monday, August 13, 2012 - 7:03pm
Kate Slater / University of California, San Diego

Unlike the literature of the South or New England, Midwestern writing is often absent from academic discussions of American literary regions. Andrew R. L. Cayton argues that the Midwest constitutes an "anti-region," a slippery zone that lacks a consistent or distinct identity. The Midwest contains multiplicities and paradoxes that cannot easily be reconciled with one another to produce a cohesive, unifying concept of place. It is known for its cultures of niceness, of normalcy, and rootedness, but it is also ground zero for nineteenth century hypercolonization. Despite its reputation as a locus of rural Americana, it also contains major urban areas, some with international reach.
