Ellen Glasgow Society

Session I: The Alternative Ellen Glasgow

As a transitional figure in the history of Southern and American literatures, Glasgow's long fiction is predominantly the focus of critical consideration, but what of her achievements in other genres? The goal of this panel will be to (re)consider Glasgow's poetry, non-fiction essays, short fiction, and less-discussed long fiction. Essays that also address Glasgow's major and minor works from innovative, alternative, or even "off the wall" perspectives are welcome as well.

Please submit 250- to 300-word proposals for 20-minute presentations as an attachment to an email sent to the address listed below.

Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice--February 5, 2016

updated: 
Sunday, December 6, 2015 - 8:00pm
Phoebe Jackson; Christopher Weaver

For an edited collection, "Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice," we seek chapter proposals that revisit the practice of peer review. Broadly defined as students responding to each other's writing, peer review has been a foundational practice since its adoption from the process movement in the 1960s. Though a mainstay of the writing classroom, peer review still poses many unanswered questions for instructors. The aim of this collection is twofold: to examine and reflect on the rationale and the theoretical premises that underlie the practice and to consider the centrality of peer review as a part of collaborative learning in today's writing classroom.
