Academic Success – Determining Factors and Explanatory Models

The question of academic success and the factors that trigger it is a constant preoccupation of researchers in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and even neurology. Oftentimes, they have been encumbered by the ambiguity of the term and, implicitly, by the relativeness of the extant definitions. More often than not, academic success is related to academic performance displayed in the student’s ability to reproduce acquired knowledge, by means of graded examinations or in intelligence tests. However, we are faced with the obvious fact that not all students who enjoyed academic success (as it is understood judging by the two aspects mentioned above) also get to social success.

"Re-Shaping the Future of Graduate Education in the Humanities;" A Symposium

The University of South Florida is pleased to announce a call for presentations for its Symposium on “Re-Shaping the Future of Graduate Education in the Humanities.”

There is no shortage of experts declaring the death of the Humanities on university campuses throughout the United States. Politicians question the “value” of a humanities-based graduate education while students uneasily balance a need for professionalization with a desire for intellectual exploration. A defeatism has often hampered students and professors as they both struggle to understand the shifting dynamics of graduate education in the Humanities.

The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. Writing occurs beyond the classroom or institutional formats, yet ‘schooling’ still defines much of how we write. Students and instructors participate in public discourse through diverse media literacies, developing writing practices that compose our relationships with individuals, education, institutions, and events. Yet, institutionalized learning often prioritizes specific formats and page-based pedagogy.

Teaching Travel Writing

 

The Society for the Study of American Travel Writing seeks abstracts for a session on “Teaching Travel Writing” for the American Literature Association annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, May 25-28, 2017.

 

As a genre of Literary and Rhetorical study, Travel Writing generally occupies a marginal status in most curricula. The same might also be said of Travel Writing as a practice. Confronting this, we welcome papers on the specific challenges and rewards of travel-writing pedagogy, either as a study in itself or as a practice.

  

Proposals might consider the following questions:
