English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on The Classroom of Literature

 

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)

On odd numbered years since the first October the Blackfriars Playhouse opened, scholars from around the world have gathered in Staunton, during the height of the Shenandoah Valley’s Fall colors, to hear lectures, see plays, and explore early modern theatre. In 2017, the American Shakespeare Center’s Education and Research Department will once again host Shakespeareans, scholars and practitioners, to share ideas about Shakespeare in the study and Shakespeare on the stage and to find ways that these two worlds – sometime in collision – can collaborate.

Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy

University of Florida University Writing Program
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 15, 2016

The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. Writing occurs beyond the classroom or institutional formats, yet ‘schooling’ still defines much of how we write. Students and instructors participate in public discourse through diverse media literacies, developing writing practices that compose our relationships with individuals, education, institutions, and events. Yet, institutionalized learning often prioritizes specific formats and page-based pedagogy.
