Publish, Don’t Perish: Advice on Writing for Publication (Roundtable)

Professors have been advised to “publish or perish” for nearly 100 years. First coined in 1927, this phrase warns professors that in order to maintain their jobs, they must publish their work. Publishing has always been central to academia, as it is the primary vehicle through which scholars share their research with a larger audience. Yet, in recent years, academia has changed so that publishing is not reserved for those who are already professors. Instead, publishing has become a requirement for any one who is applying to become a professor, with PhD students being encouraged to publish their research before they have finished their degrees.

Creating Safer Spaces in English Composition Courses After the 2016 Election

deadline for submissions:

This roundtable will look at pedagogical strategies for examining the 2016 election in Standard Freshman English Composition courses. English Composition instructors are struggling with approaching relevant concepts (ex. argument) and reading selections that do not alienate portions of the classroom with every choice. While it would be ideal, it is not necessarily feasible or responsible to be bi-partisan with every lesson plan. Submissions should present pedagogical approaches that stimulate constructive inquiry, application of course concepts, and/or address concerns of partisan discourse (in the texts, by instructors, or students).

Call for Chapters: Teaching Literature and Language Through Multimodal Texts

The last few decades have witnessed a growing interest in the benefits of linking the learning of a foreign language to the study of its literature. In fact, the emphasis on working with culturally authentic texts is one of the central claims for curriculum reform in EFL/ESL teaching nowadays. Moreover, the latest developments in text-based teaching point to a curriculum in which language, culture, and literature are taught as a continuum. 

Nevertheless, the incorporation of literary texts into the language curriculum is not easy to tackle. Many linguists refer to literary content as extremely demanding for both teachers and students. Not surprisingly, many teachers tend to avoid using literary texts for this reason.

Teaching Tone at NeMLA 2018

On Teaching Tone as Well as Content at NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In our current climate of fake news from seemingly authoritative sources, and high journalistic integrity from formerly discounted sources, it is clear that our criteria for evaluating the reliability of sources is shifting. I propose that a lack of news literacy is part of a larger literacy problem: readers need to understand tone from context and form. For as long as we have been assigning our composition or literature classes to read "A Modest Proposal" or anything else with an unreliable narrator, and as long as we have been explaining to potential book banners that a book with blatantly racist characters is not inherently racist, we language and literature instructors have been developing strategies to teach tone.
