"Fun with Dick and Jane: Gender and Childhood"
A Gender Studies Conference at the University of Notre Dame
South Bend, Indiana
December 4-6, 2014
In recent years, there has been great interest in questions of gender and childhood, ranging from issues around boys wearing princess costumes to school; to Disney princess culture; to parents refusing to announce a baby's biological sex; to pre-teen children coming out as gay, lesbian, and queer; to toy companies marketing toys by gender; to gender-related bullying, and more.
Form, History, and Narrative
The term "community engagement" has of late become something of an academic buzzword in the United States, accompanying and engendering innovative new pedagogy and research possibilities, as well as new conceptions of the university and its mission. There nevertheless persists a widespread stereotyping of community engagement as the latest incarnation of administrative jargon, as a fad that lacks academic rigor and amounts to nothing more than an institutionally enforced form of volunteerism or activism. Those in literary studies especially (unlike many faculty in composition and rhetoric) often struggle to identify the relevance of community engagement to their research and teaching.
