Undergraduate Placement: Tales from the Alt-Grad Track (NEMLA 2017)

Paul Thifault
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Concerns about the vocational outcomes of humanities majors seem to be at an all-time high. With advanced degrees in the humanities no longer guaranteeing stable academic employment, the “alt-ac” movement that has gripped PhD graduate programs is beginning to trickle down into “alt-grad” movements in undergraduate programs. Despite growing suspicion about the career prospects of those who pursue advanced degrees in the humanities, undergraduate faculty in fields like English, History, and Philosophy are being asked to justify their existence by crafting narratives of “placement.”

Call for Chapters: Occupy the Screen(s): The Great Recession in Media

updated: 
Thursday, July 28, 2016 - 9:36am
edited, interdisciplinary collection of essays
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Call for chapters in an edited, interdisciplinary collection of essays.  Chapters will explore the intersection of social class, film, television, communication, social media, and other related topics (which might include income inequality, class warfare, social justice movements, gaming culture, among others). We are interested in portrayals from a range of media and genres: film, games, television, Twitter, YouTube, art, and more.

We encourage submissions from all disciplines. Topics of possible interest include:

•    Depictions and understandings  of demonstrations, political activism, online, and across media.

Women, Rewriting (and) Authority: Critical Approaches to Feminist Translation (Roundtable)

updated: 
Thursday, July 28, 2016 - 9:37am
NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable addresses the negotiation of the textual authority of those who call themselves or are called "women" vis à vis critical approaches in feminist and translation theory. The convergence of feminist and translation studies allows for the examination of power differentials in relation to women's roles as authors, translators, and activists. Moreover, this criticism has been useful in revealing the historical and present silencing of women's contributions as cultural agents. The goal of this roundtable is to consider how translation brings global and historical feminisms into dialogue, and in doing so, challenges legacies of hegemonic cultural authority.

"Shattered"
Pivot: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies and Thought

“When you are in the middle of a story it isn’t a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it.”
– Margaret Atwood

“Here am I and there is my body dancing on glass”
– Sarah Kane

UPDATED DEADLINE: On the DL: Athletes, Athletics, and Disability

updated: 
Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 1:19pm
Joseph P. Fisher
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection.  Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level.  In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.
