Call for Submissions: Teaching Thoreau

In 2018, the Thoreau Society Bulletin will begin publishing a series of essays on the subject of “Teaching Thoreau.” This new regular feature will focus on strategies for teaching the life and works of Henry David Thoreau while giving educators the opportunity to share their expertise and experiences with an audience of fellow teachers and students of Thoreau.

We are currently accepting submissions for next year. We invite educators of all levels and subjects to submit short essays (1,000-1,500 words) on their pedagogical methods both inside and outside of the classroom. The series will explore the value of teaching Thoreau from many different perspectives. Possible topics include:

CHAPTER PROPOSALS ARE INVITED FOR AN EDITED VOLUME TITLED STATES AND PRISONS: HUMANITIES AND CARCERAL IMAGINARIES

deadline for submissions:

This edited anthology explores the nexus between violence and carcerality within the discursive order of state practices. Scholars within humanities, engaging with critiques of carcerality in relation to state violence from different global contexts are welcome to contribute to this anthology. This volume aims to align with the larger objectives envisioned by activist groups such as M4BL (Movement for Black Lives): building alliances with indigenous people’s struggles, political prisoners’ solidarity work, and activists resisting violence against women and LGBTQIA communities. It explores the potential to forge a global discursive order oriented toward anticolonial liberation struggles.

Anthologies are a profoundly pedagogical genre. However, while anthologies are often constructed specifically for classrooms, as scholars such as Kenneth Warren (1993) and Cynthia G. Franklin (1997) have argued, their making is typically removed from the site and sight of the classroom. While this suggests a unilateral and hierarchical pedagogy of knowledge transmission from expert to student, this panel explores what other, more empowering praxes emerge around what we are calling “the anthological impulse”: a desire to write and think with others and collect and share that work.

CFP for SSAWW 2018: “Resistance and Recovery through Collaborative Teaching Practices”

In an introduction to a 2017 special issue of American Literature, Carol Batker, Eden Osucha, and Augusta Rohrbach ask how our current political moment gives rise to new questions about the role of teaching and scholarship in American literary studies. The issue calls for the radical potential of intertwined scholarship and teaching that makes literary studies necessary to the work of unmasking the asymmetrical relations of power that persist in the academy. In response, our roundtable proposes an examination of feminist pedagogy practices, or a pedagogy that privileges collaboration and resists canonical syllabi to engage students in interdisciplinary projects of recovery and resistance.
