Edited Volume: Call for Chapters

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:45pm
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity in Contemporary Higher Education
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2017

The editor is seeking papers that critique cases of inequity, marginalization and dissonance in higher education settings.  With current sociological and political debates relying on perception as the basis for determining the direction of governance, it is increasingly important that educators at all levels are reminded of the powerful impact of policy. The goal of the text is to influence future leaders who will emerge from the ranks of college and university educated individuals to possess a working knowledge of structuration theory (Giddens, 1984) and apply it toward socially just goals in the higher education setting and beyond.

Call for papers for a roundtable at the 2018 NeMLA conference in Pittsburgh, April 12-15:

This roundtable will examine teaching methods and strategies for addressing the fiction of terrorism in the contemporary literature classroom. With a focus on teaching after 9/11, and in a moment fraught with tensions about politics and secondary education (see, for example, the “Professor Watchlist”), this roundtable will also address the ways faculty can frame their classes—not only for the students they teach, but for a general public concerned with the politics of college and university faculty.
