CCRWT will present its fourth annual interdisciplinary conference on Friday, October 28, 2016.

In an economy where the bachelor’s degree is what the high school diploma once was for obtaining a living wage, are colleges and universities equipped to handle the wide range of abilities for students who are focused more on getting through than learning to appreciate how a liberal arts education may better equip them for the job market?

 

Overlooked, Forgotten, or Maligned: Bringing Minor Characters Into Focus

NeMLA 2017 - Baltimore, MD

This panel seeks to investigate how we can (re)read classic American novels when analyzing them via secondary/minor characters. For example, how does the town of Maycomb change when read through Jack Finch? Does Jordan Baker give us insight into The Great Gatsby that no other character provides? Secondary characters are often overlooked when teaching and/or researching classic American novels, and this panel seeks to remedy that problem. By exhuming the often maligned supporting cast, we can see classic novels with fresh eyes, deepening our understanding of canonical stories while illuminating new ways of teaching these novels to our students.

 

Young Adult Literature @ PAMLA 2016 (abstract: 6/10/16; conference: 11/11-11/13/2016) [Update]

Young adult literature is home to a host of paradoxes. Inscribing the monstrous and yet rapturous, traumatizing and yet electrifying, self-alienated and yet self-conscious experience of adolescence, texts for and about young adults explore rich and radical liminalities. The Young Adult Literature session of PAMLA 2016 invites your proposal on any theme or topic of study pertaining to the vibrant field of YA literature and culture. We welcome engaging, provocative analyses of YA literature and texts (including graphic novels, comic books, video games, and/or films). Proposals attending to the conference theme "Archives, Libraries, Properties" are especially welcome.

 

The Critic as Amateur

Edited Collection
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 20, 2016

We are inviting essays for a proposed collection tentatively titled The Critic as Amateur, with strong interest from Oxford UP. The collection will focus on literary criticism as an activity suspended (productively) between expertise and amateurism.  It will explore the idea of the critic of literature as an amateur rather than an expert, or conversely, it will consider the role of expertise in literary criticism. Individual contributions might touch on figures who have written on literature without credentials/certification, academic or otherwise, or institutional affiliations. They might also address academics who have successfully assumed "amateur" roles while writing or speaking in the public domain.
