The interrogation of wide-ranging labor and political-economic issues has long provided cultural and literary studies with a foundational motive. Not much has been said about maintenance—at least not directly. Against modernity’s celebration of progress, development and productivity, and against neoliberal incantations of innovation and creative destruction, attending to maintenance reveals a devalorized and oft-hidden form of labor, one on which productivity happens to depend. And, against that most fundamental drive in all forms of capitalism—growth—maintenance may offer a workable alternative.

From the earliest traces of etchings on stone tablets to the emergence of Kindles and e-readers in contemporary society, humans have invented platforms for the creation and dissemination of text. Implicit in each textual object are the figures of the reader and writer and their differing engagement with the work. But what does it mean to be a reader or a writer, and how does each role play a part in the shaping of a text?

(Update) Axxed: Public Censorship and the Academy (NeMLA, March 23-26, 2017)

Resistance to the censorship of speech or publications by governmental or institutional authority has long been regarded as central to the defense of academic freedom. The hypervisibility and hyperconnectivity resulting from social media and the 24-hour news cycle have made possible the suppression and/or marginalization of unpopular ideas and texts through public shaming and/or boycotting. While on the one hand, this kind of public censorship embodies the total realization of freedom of expression, at the same time, it serves to squelch unpopular ideas and texts.

The Digital Teaching Edition

This proposed roundtable session will consider the challenges—technological, pedagogical, and practical—of creating a digital edition of a text specifically for use in the classroom. The absence of teaching editions of some texts, in particular those by women writers and writers of color, has become a growing concern for those who specialize in these authors. Editions may have gone out of print or only be available in expensive scholarly versions; meanwhile, publishers are hesitant to invest in texts that may not have a wide readership. This situation has some instructors struggling to use online versions that may not be easy to read or use, are rarely annotated, and are usually lacking contextual information.
