Experiments in Relational Pedagogy: Initiating Invention in the Arts and Humanities

The Arts & Humanities in the academy are in a critical juncture in its history. As we progress further into the digital age, colleges and universities are gradually adopting new policies and new programs and college-wide initiatives to foster research and teaching that addresses both technological and societal changes as well as economic and industry demands. Simultaneously, these departments are facing new or ongoing financial restraints and students, faculty, and practitioners alike confront new, real world obstacles in their respective markets.

Issue #4: From Digital to Print:  Letters and Learning in Electracy

At the 2005 annual meeting of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, Gregory L. Ulmer reminded conference-goers of the importance of understanding our relationships to writing and print, the apparatus from which our identities, perspectives, theories and practices emerge.  Over the course of thirty years and eight books, Ulmer has called for us not only to be aware of the emerging apparatus he dubbed “electracy” but also to help invent and shape it.

The proposed book will address best practices in ethical branding, corporate culture, and such topics as truth, integrity, value, and differentiation. Collectively, these cases will provide a comprehensive overview of best practice in ethical branding.

The Anthology of Babel: Papers on Non-Existent Texts

Borges once cheekily wrote, “Writing long books is a laborious and impoverishing act of foolishness…A better procedure is to pretend that those books already exist and to offer …a commentary.” Indeed authors as varied as Borges, Lovecraft, Dick, Apollinaire, Lew, and Asimov placed completely fictional books at the center of their own literary universes. That would make a fascinating subject for an anthology, but that is not this anthology. Rather, what this collection seeks are academic-style works of literary theory and criticism which take as their primary texts completely fictional novels, stories, movements, authors, and films.

We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.

“Reading World War I Literature 100 Years After” - Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses - Special Issue (2018), No. 31

Editors: Nick Milne (University of Ottawa) & Sara Prieto (University of Alicante)

A hundred years after the Armistice of World War I, further review of the literature focused on and emanating from the conflict is needed. This special issue of Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (http://raei.ua.es) seeks to approach WWI from a multidisciplinary perspective, beyond the traditional canonical voices associated with the literature of the Great War.
