CFP for SSAWW 2018: “Resistance and Recovery through Collaborative Teaching Practices”

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 9, 2018

In an introduction to a 2017 special issue of American Literature, Carol Batker, Eden Osucha, and Augusta Rohrbach ask how our current political moment gives rise to new questions about the role of teaching and scholarship in American literary studies. The issue calls for the radical potential of intertwined scholarship and teaching that makes literary studies necessary to the work of unmasking the asymmetrical relations of power that persist in the academy. In response, our roundtable proposes an examination of feminist pedagogy practices, or a pedagogy that privileges collaboration and resists canonical syllabi to engage students in interdisciplinary projects of recovery and resistance.

Queer theory underscores the importance and history of intersectional identities in the LGBT movement as it pertains to race, gender, religion, class, immigration, disability, etc. We are looking for dynamic presenters who will offer case studies analyzing how outsider and mainstream art as well as grassroots and establishment political activism interrogates and employs intersectional identities to advance LGBT rights.
