CCCC 2011 Panel "Contested Acts: Literary Genres in the First-Year Writing Classroom" (4/30)

Keith Wilhite / Duke University - Thompson Writing Program

It's been nearly eighteen years since College English published the point/counter-point between Erika Lindemann and Gary Tate over the place of literature in the composition classroom. The debate has shown no signs of slowing. Scholars continue to weigh in on what Peter Elbow has aptly described as "sites of conflict" between literature and composition. We have seen withering critiques of literary studies, encomiums to literature's salvific potential, and appeals to reconcile the rhetorical and poetic strands that characterize every act of reading and writing.

[Updated] -- Nation and the Mother Tongue(s) -- NEW Deadline May 4, 2010

The shape of nationalist fervor is drawn against a background of coherent visuals. But what if the mother tongue speaks in pluralities at the very origin of the nation? This panel seeks to examine the roles of multilingualisms, accents, dialects, and inflections within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.

This panel welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines and scholarly perspectives,including pedagogy and the interdisciplines.

Science in Mimesis

updated: 
Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 2:26pm
Renaissance Society of America (March 2011) panel

In recent years, many scholars of early-modern art and literature have examined the new science for its modes of representation. Perhaps it is time for us to reconsider, instead, how the new science was represented in early-modern art and literature. Papers are invited for a panel or panels on period mimeses of emergent natural science. The data can be literary or artistic; the science, from any area or discipline. The goal, however, is to find out how scientific innovations were received and understood by mimetic workers. Please email proposal and cv to jfleming@sfu.ca by May 10th.
