The exponential increase in Creative Writing degrees and programs at the undergraduate and graduate level has been well-documented, and much thought and scholarship has been devoted to the impact the Academy has on the writing community and subsequent creative output. However, there has been only a limited amount of public conversation about and research into the pedagogical approaches that have been or might be used in Creative Writing classrooms and programs. How are teachers of Creative Writing tweaking, extending, revolutionizing, or replacing the traditional Workshop model in their classrooms? What are or should be the academic and aesthetic goals of a Creative Writing class or program, and how can these goals be achieved?

Listening Strategies for Feminist and Queer Action

This panel responds to Krista Ratcliffe's call in Rhetorical Listening: Identification, Gender, Whiteness (2005) for rhetoricians to pay more attention to listening as a way to promote conscious identifications across race and gender that can, in turn, facilitate cross-cultural communication. In Rhetorical Listening, Ratcliffe counters longstanding disciplinary and cultural biases against listening as a passive, simplistic, "feminine" mode of reception by demonstrating its ability to serve as an active form of rhetorical invention. She also likens rhetorical listening to a "code of conduct" that can spark a more open, ethical response to the other that is capable of honoring commonalities and differences.

What did it mean to be a woman in early modern legal systems?

Drawing on a wide range of historical and literary examples – from Anne Askew to Mary Stuart, A Warning for Fair Women to The Winter's Tale – these sessions seek to bring together the latest research on the female in early modern legal contexts. By considering the idea of the woman as witness, litigant, and defendant; by imagining the role of the early modern courtroom in the shaping of female identity; and by examining contemporary literary portrayals of the plight of 'women before the law', these sessions will attend to the myriad ways in which women were placed 'on trial' in the early modern period.

Belonging and possession have long been treated as foundational to the missions and activities of museums and archives in how they connote, establish, explain, and demonstrate the ways collections belong to them; determine and express who possesses custody, ownership and control of artifacts; and, by extension, consider the knowledge surrounding objects, makers, places of origin and residence that they supply. Typically, museums and archives express their interests in possessing collections through practices of acquisition, loan, attribution, provenance, exhibition, scholarship, conservation, and rights and reproductions.
