Christian Bednar / North Shore Community College

EDvance is a practitioner-based resource for developmental educators seeking innovative methods of instruction for their English classrooms. The journal publishes research-based pedagogy that challenges students to think deeply about their learning in highly creative and imaginative ways. Our purpose is to extend the scope of what it means to teach students of the developmental level.

While we welcome submissions of a wide variety, in our inaugural issue, we are particularly interested in lesson ideas that explore the compositional (reading and/or writing) processes of developmental students.

American Studies Association (ASA) Conference

Paper abstracts are sought for the ASA panel "From the Ground Up: Reimagining Collective Dissent in the Transnational Age." The description is below:

The authors of Transnationalism From Below remind us of the cleft between the theories and practices within the transnational rubric to argue that "the power to resist hegemonic projects, exists latently at all levels of the global system. But to materialize, it must be socially organized, and cannot be taken for granted as inherently embedded in phantom discourses 'from below'." This panel will revisit the issue of collective dissent to explore how notions of solidarity and resistance have been altered, reconfigured, and reimagined in fluid global contexts.

WORKSHOP Improvisation and Innovation:
Clinicians, Scientists and Artists Together, Improving Performance

March Friday 22nd March to Sunday 24th March 2013

Harris Manchester College, Oxford

Description

In every aspect of life we are constantly confronted with change and the possibility of innovation. Some changes are small--a client cancels an appointment; some not so small--a proposal is rejected, or a hypothesis fails; and some are large--death, crime, chronic illness. In every case, having good tools to respond quickly and effectively to changing situations and circumstances is essential.

Rebeka Sára Szigethy & Ádám T. Bogár

We seek essays for an edited collection on the topics of family, tolerance, and trauma management in Kurt Vonnegut's oeuvre. Vonnegut has exhibited an anomalous and ambiguous attitude towards family and familial relationships throughout his life, which is apparent in his public addresses just as much as in his writing. The different aspects and appearances of the notion of tolerance are likewise core topics in his works, as is the exploration of diverse theories of handling trauma experienced previously. This collection aims to assemble essays that explore the possible readings of, approaches to, and practices of trauma management in Vonnegut's works, as well as how such trauma management is related to family and tolerance.

UNC MEMS, Duke MedRen, UNC Graduate School

The 13th annual North Carolina Colloquium in Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites graduate students to submit proposals that engage broadly with the notion of marginalia. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions ranging in historical focus from late antiquity to the seventeenth century. Our topic is intended to be expansive rather than limiting; while papers may certainly consider marginalia as they appear in manuscripts, they are also welcome to dwell on other kinds of marginal entities—be they social groups, texts, dialects, etc. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:

We are interested in how boundaries are established and shift between the spheres of art and non-art, and will welcome submissions that deal with all artistic genres and media, spanning all historical periods. Papers are welcome to focus on individual authors or works, or to approach the topic more broadly.
