CFP: [Collections] ESSAYS ON ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION

updated: 
Tuesday, September 30, 2008 - 1:48pm
Aeron Haynie

        Edited collection seeking essays about student experiences
in “free” or alternative schools. Despite many current debates about
education (Charter Schools, accountability, “No Child Left Behind,”
national standards, etc.), there has been little attention paid to
students who have experienced education without tests, grades, assigned
curriculum, or other forms of external pressure to learn. What does self-
directed learning look like? What kinds of environments are created in
these “free schools”? What kinds of projects/work take place in
alternative schools? How do alternative schools change the experience of
learning?

CFP: [Renaissance] Shifting Paradigms in Early Modern Studies

Danielle Trudeau

 The 2009 Northern California Renaissance Conference will be held on
Saturday, May 2, at San José State University. This year the conference
will focus on Shifting Paradigms in Early Modern Studies. While the Early
Modern world itself was shaped by aesthetic, moral, scientific, and
technological shifts, Renaissance studies in the United States also
underwent a paradigm change during the last decades of the 20th century:
the expansion of the canon beyond the Western Civilization corpus of “great
authors.” How did Renaissance studies benefit from the opening of the
canon? What new directions or topics have emerged? What constitutes today a

updated: 
Monday, September 29, 2008 - 4:42pm
Jennifer Camden

This proposed panel for the 2009 INCS conference in Saratoga Springs, NY,
“The Mind Is Its Own Place: Enclosure and Travel in Jacobin Fiction”
identifies a peculiar juxtaposition in Jacobin and post- Jacobin fiction:
oscillating scenes of enclosure and travel, imprisonment and freedom. In
the context of the French Revolution, such scenes most obviously comment on
the storming of the Bastille, or the Revolution’s promise of liberté. This
panel interrogates the legacy of the French Revolution in the long
nineteenth century: how do authors imagine happiness (or misery) in the
context of the French Revolution? How does the French Revolution alter
