CFP: Digital English: A Handbook for the 21st Century Classroom

Edited by Naomi Milthorpe, Robert Clarke, Joanne Jones, and Robbie Moore.

Submissions due: September 1, 2017.

 

New university students are digital natives; our classrooms filled with technology. Our students are increasingly online only – distanced by the demands of economics, geography, or time. Yet as English scholars, most of our training has been with physical materials and face-to-face methods: books, paper, discussion. So what are the best methods of using technology in our classrooms? How, why, and when should we use it?

This panel continues the work started by the "Ecology of Ageism in the Long Eighteenth Century," a panel at ASECS in 2016 that focused on the constructions of age in the eighteenth century. Not only a reflection of genes or time, aging is a cultural discourse that affects the interpolation of identity and the power dynamics of privilege. "The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Queer Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century" seeks to expand the discussion of aging by connecting age studies to work in performance theory, disability studies, and queer studies.
