deadline for submissions:

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural studies or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

(Update) Axxed: Public Censorship and the Academy (NeMLA, March 23-26, 2017)

Resistance to the censorship of speech or publications by governmental or institutional authority has long been regarded as central to the defense of academic freedom. The hypervisibility and hyperconnectivity resulting from social media and the 24-hour news cycle have made possible the suppression and/or marginalization of unpopular ideas and texts through public shaming and/or boycotting. While on the one hand, this kind of public censorship embodies the total realization of freedom of expression, at the same time, it serves to squelch unpopular ideas and texts.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

Writing Beyond the Language Requirement 

Recently, scholars have recognized that “L2 writing is not only an ability to acquire, teach, and assess—as is conventionally assumed—but L2 writing is also a means, context, and basis for learning, both of language and of writing” (Manchón, 2011, x). That is, second language writing involves both learning to write and writing to learn. What does this mean for our curricula?

In an economy where the bachelor’s degree is what the high school diploma once was for obtaining a living wage, are colleges and universities equipped to handle the wide range of abilities for students who are focused more on getting through than learning to appreciate how a liberal arts education may better equip them for the job market?
