Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

Reports From Academic Moms on Life-hacking the Ph.D-Career-Kid Matrix  (Roundtable)Submit Abstract


A roundtable discussion on how women with kids manage and thrive in academia. Are women getting support on the road to becoming Dr. and Mom? Or are we ignoring: a chronic lack of mentorship; negative administrative policies; and even outdated, patriarchal, institutionalized expectations of who gets to succeed? Personal experiences good and bad are welcome, as are moms of all backgrounds, ages, and experiences. https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16122

Material Transgressions: Romantic Bodies, Affects, Genders (Proposed Collection)

Friday, August 5, 2016 - 4:41pm

Current theoretical debates about subjects and objects, bodies and minds, and genre and gender have explored in detail women’s status as objects and done much to theorize their efforts to become speaking subjects. But these discussions can be more transgressive in order to explore the ways in which Romantic writers in particular challenged the foundational ideas of materiality that they were given and on which we continue to rely when we read them in the twenty-first century. For the proposed collection, Material Transgressions: Romantic Bodies, Affects, Genders, we are soliciting essays that think outside of Romantic ideologies of gender that reiterate notions of sexed bodies, embodied subjectivity, or stable texts.
