Convincing students who are resistant to feminist ideology—most often the white, straight, cisgender, male student—that feminism is relevant to their lives and the lives of those around them is an uphill battle. More often than not, composition classes are required courses, which means that the students do not want to be there in the first place. Add a feminist theme into the mix, and it can often be a recipe for disaster. This roundtable invites participants to explore the techniques and methods for teaching composition through a feminist lens, particularly focusing on how to combat negativity, while also seeking to invite those resistant students to join the conversation.

Theorizing Reading and Activism in Environmental Literature 

This seminar will explore how theories of reading and reception—important to recent work in critical race studies, cognitive narratology, and new formalism—can inform ecocriticism. Building on the large body of scholarship attending to problems of reading, reception, race, and ethnicity, the seminar in particular invites papers on literatures of environmental justice or postcolonial environmentalism.

In Plato’s Phadrus, Socrates relates a myth of the invention of writing, presented to King Thamus by Theuth. While Theuth claims to have invented the means for increased wisdom and memory, Thamus disagrees: “this discovery of yours will create forgetfulness in the learners’ souls, because they will not use their memories; they will trust to the external written characters and not remember themselves.” Writing involves an exteriorization of the faculties of both language and, significantly, memory.
