Samford University invites paper proposals for its third biennial Teaching the Christian Intellectual Tradition Conference: Teaching Dante, to be held in Birmingham on October 25-27, 2018. This conference is designed to encourage excellence in undergraduate teaching across the curriculum, with a particular emphasis on core curriculum and general education courses. Specialists and non-specialists are encouraged to submit proposals; however, all presentations should be designed with the non-specialist audience in mind and should directly address curricular and/or teaching strategies. Proposals that demonstrate interdisciplinary connections are strongly encouraged.

LOVE, ETC.

A conference sponsored by the “Uses of Literature” Research Project at the University of Southern Denmark, October 3-4, 2019

What is there left to say about love? Endlessly invoked, celebrated, assailed, abused, and parodied, love has been hailed as the meaning of life and disdained as the ultimate cliché. This conference is inspired by the conviction that love is poised to become a focus of renewed interest in the humanities. We anticipate two main focal points for the conference, without excluding other options.

Journal Submission - Call: great apes and personhood

updated: 
Monday, April 2, 2018 - 12:36pm
ASEBL Journal, St. Francis College
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Call for a paper that addresses and compares great ape intelligence and social behavior. Specifically, we’d be interested, in line with the aims and scope of the journal, for a paper that looks at, among great apes, what has been traditionally considered human-unique traits and characteristics like moral behavior. Therefore, emphasis could be placed, comparatively speaking even among the great apes, on the similarities and differences in helping, aggression, and intelligence among orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos. In this regard, one could discuss recent findings in the context of great ape personhood. In turn, the paper could dovetail into a discussion about great apes in captivity, habitat loss, and animal rights.

Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?

The Adaptation Essay Prize 2018Entries now open

About the Adaptation Essay Prize

The Adaptation Essay Prize is a new innovation from the journal, launched in 2011 to encourage the best new scholarship in the field. While the journal publishes many articles which focus on the relationship between literature and film, the Editors are particularly keen to publish work which challenges the primacy of that relationship: this might include essays on computer games, opera, popular music, animation, genre fiction or work with a wider theoretical sweep.
