Administrative staff at the Regional Divisions of the MLA will lead a discussion featuring scholars who have successfully developed panels at major national conferences in language and literature. We will consider all aspects of organizing conference panels: writing the session proposal, promoting the call for papers, curating abstracts, facilitating discussion among panelists and audience members, and developing panels into publications. Interdisciplinary session proposals are encouraged. Audience members should come with questions and to share advice from their own experiences. This workshop is in preparation for a guaranteed session at NeMLA 2019 in Washington, DC. 250-word abstracts and 50-word bios.

 The new president did not show any interest in higher education until the late stage of the campaign. His pick to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos also does not have any background in higher education. In addition to his impulsive and popularist policies that horrify experts, his connivance of white supremacy and anti-intellectualism especially put academe in jeopardy. We have already witnessed unpromising changes on campuses in the U.S. since his appearance for the election. Racial and religious minority groups became targets of hate-motivated incidents. White-supremacist posters and fliers, swastikas, and racial epithets, which were once believed as taboo, cause constant controversies on campus.

Happiness - A special issue of Writing from Below

Writing from Below
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 29, 2017

Emergent research into happiness is still largely situated in fields such as sociology, psychology, and neuroscience. Traditionally the uncontested domain of the Humanities, the question of “How should we live?” is too rarely approached in contemporary literary and cultural studies. Indeed, even in a thriving field such as affect studies, research still largely focuses on negative emotions, ugly feelings (Ngai), shame (Probyn), paranoia (Sedgwick), failure (Halberstam), and the cruelty of optimism (Berlant). But perhaps the critical tide is turning. Scholars are beginning to theorise the end of our well-rehearsed “hermeneutics of suspicion,” and conjecturing what comes after (Felski).
