We are seeking proposals for a roundtable on innovative ways to engage students in medieval and/or early modern studies.  This roundtable is intended to be a time for sharing ideas and discussing effective approaches to teaching medieval and early modern content.  We are particularly interested in presentations which showcase specific lessons, activities, and methods that participants have found fruitful, have resulted in especially productive class meetings, or compelling student work.  We invite proposals for short (8-10-minute) presentations.  Presentations related to teaching courses in all disciplines are welcome.  Relevant topics might include (but are not limited to):

Theme: The Art of Writing/The Writing of Art

The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.

Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.

Art & Action: Literary Authorship, Politics, and Celebrity Culture

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 1:18pm
The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 29, 2019

Writers and writers’ organisations have a long history of using their public standing and cultural capital to promote causes that transcend the literary sphere, from abolition and gender equality to free expression, anti-war agitation, and environmental issues. This two-day conference explores the intersections of authorship, politics, activism, and literary celebrity across historical periods, literatures, and media. It examines the forms and impact of authorial field migrations between literature and politics and the ways in which they are situated within, and shaped by, structural frameworks that include academic institutions, prize-giving bodies, publishing industries, and literary celebrity culture.
