500-word proposals for 15-minute papers/presentations treating pedagogy on the use of metacognition strategies in the context of active learning & appropriate technological support in teaching literature or composition in classroom settings. Metacognition encompasses “learning how we learn” activities and techniques. Active learning presumes learner-based instruction, and may include problem-based learning, inquiry-based learning, collaborative learning, or other forms of active learning, including the use of technology—PowerPoint, SmartBoards, student response systems, Smartphones, IPhones, IPads, IPods, social media (e.g., YouTube, Facebook), whether in F2F, online, or hybrid courses.
In light of recent scholarship on the cultural history of American creative writing programs, such as Mark McGurl's The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing (2011) and Eric Bennett's Workshops of Empire: Stegner, Engle, and American Creative Writing during the Cold War (2015), we invite papers on postcolonial responses to creative writing as a globalized discipline. Perspectives from a wide variety of fields are welcome, including comparative literature, cultural studies, empire studies, new media, pedagogy, postcolonialism, and transnationalism.
CFP for panel at 2017 ASECS National Conference, March 30-April 2, Minneapolis
Call for papers for the Chaucer MetaPage session at the International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, in May 2017
Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.
For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.
Convincing students who are resistant to feminist ideology—most often the white, straight, cisgender, male student—that feminism is relevant to their lives and the lives of those around them is an uphill battle. More often than not, composition classes are required courses, which means that the students do not want to be there in the first place. Add a feminist theme into the mix, and it can often be a recipe for disaster. This roundtable invites participants to explore the techniques and methods for teaching composition through a feminist lens, particularly focusing on how to combat negativity, while also seeking to invite those resistant students to join the conversation.

We invite diverse literary and pedagogical approaches to this theme, including papers that respond to the following questions: How do borders, whether physical, linguistic, economic, etc., signal or enact forms of violence? Conversely, how do borders function as sites of resistance? What forms can resistance to borders and/or violence take? How does violence at sites of cultural difference affect communities and individuals? This violence might be physical, emotional, metaphorical, linguistic, cultural, judicial, etc.
