Writing Across the Curriculum (MMLA) (Deadline Extended)

updated: 
Friday, April 10, 2020 - 10:40am
Alejandra Ortega / Purdue University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 20, 2020

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

 

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.

 

Topics might include, but are not limited to:

Study and Scrutiny: Research on Young Adult Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The confluence of sports culture and sociopolitical issues has a long history. Memorable examples of athletes of yesteryear embracing activism include Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists against institutional racism, Muhammad Ali opposing the Vietnam War, and Billie Jean King fighting for gender equity. Contemporary examples include Colin Kaepernick protesting police violence against people of color and the U.S. women’s national soccer team charging U.S. Soccer with gender discrimination. Each example underscores the reality that athletes are so much more than the games they play. Many authors have honored this tradition through the fictional athletes they portray in contemporary sports-related young adult literature (YAL).
