CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A PROPOSED EDITED COLLECTION. We are seeking submissions for a collection of essays titled Beyond Equity Into Justice: Bringing Theory Into Practice at Community Colleges. This edited volume addresses how our changing attitudes towards serving all student populations has shifted the pedagogical and relational approaches used by faculty, staff, and administrators at community colleges. Attitudes about equality, equity, and justice are more intentional and integral to the evolution of the work we do as educators. Dr. Diane K.
The Cincinnati Conference on Romance and Arabic Languages and Literatures is the oldest graduate students conference in the United States. It has run uninterrupted since 1980, with panels on all aspects of Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese languages and literatures. In 2019 Arabic was added to the department and to the conference. By 1983 the conference was attracting more than 200 presenters annually, currently we only accept 120 papers to make it an enjoyable and intellectually satisfying experience.
CALL FOR PAPERS, PROJECTS, AND WORKS-IN-PROGRESS
In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.
Taking its cue from Lawrence Venuti's work on the scandal of translation, the ways that translations of texts originally produced in other languages carry the power to affront the norms and assumptions of both source and target languages and cultures, this roundtable for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association's conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, FL, 13–15 November 2020, welcomes submissions on either particularly scandalous adaptations or the scandal of adaptation generally.
Climate change is the existential crisis of this century, affecting biodiversity, ecosystems, and all aspects of human life. This is a topic of enormous breadth, complexity, and particular urgency with respect to knowledge, innovation, collaboration, advocacy, and activism. The spring 2021 issue of the peer-reviewed Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore the broad and impactful work of undergraduate research in the context of climate change. Are there particular models of collaborative research vital for this work? Are there particular challenges associated with the interdisciplinary demands of the interrelated impacts of climate change?
The traditional apprenticeship model is a well-documented paradigm for engaging undergraduates in research. In recent years, course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have become more common. Many factors influence a mentor’s ability to use these models, and sometimes alternative paths are needed to engage in undergraduate research. The winter 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore these nontraditional approaches to undergraduate research.
Topics of interest include the following:
