In The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture (Oxford UP, 2016), Jeffery Einboden writes that his "excavat[ion]" of "Arabic and Persion precedents that shaped U.S. authorial lives and letters" rests on the ongoing "remappings of U.S. literary origins" which have redefinined the ways we think about authorship, nation-states, and literary texts in the wake of the transnational turn.

Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY and NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Academic institutions are structured so that different disciplines are housed in different departments. However, in recent years, there has been a call to augment the interdisciplinary scope of the humanities curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. This push for greater interdisciplinarity in the humanities has resulted from many factors including the need to recruit students to increase humanities enrollments, a desire to sustain student interest in the humanities, better employment opportunities for those on the academic job market, and the production of unique, multi-faceted scholarship.

The 17th annual Atlantic Center for Learning Communities (ACLC) Curriculum Planning Retreat* will be held October 18-20, 2017, at Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford, CT.** We are seeking proposals for workshops that fall within the general theme of “Bridging Cultural Divides through Integrative Learning.” How do practitioners of learning communities consciously address and actively seek to help bridge political, economic, racial, ethnic, gender, religious and other “divides”? What successes and challenges do we face when encountering such divides in our learning communities? How do faculty, staff and administrators model community that is committed to bridging such divides?

Writing Center directors and consultants, including student tutors, are welcome to join us on Saturday, April 22, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., as presenters or attenders of this research- and experienced-based conference.

In her poem "To Be of Use," Marge Piercy simultaneously acknowledges the commonness and affirms the importance of “work that is real.”  With this poem in mind, numerous questions about the work of our Centers can be entertained, including but not limited to these:

--Who uses our Centers, and why?  Alternatively, who doesn't use our Centers, and why not?  To what extent is data collection helpful here, yielding what observations and resulting in what changes?

International Higher Education: Forces Working Against a Global-Local English Department

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:09pm
Panel for 2018 MLA convention
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The intersection of globalization and American style higher education is perhaps most keenly expressed in the necessity of the English language as a connecting force. However, as the lingua franca of many ‘global’ or ‘international’ liberal arts programs, it is more than just a medium of instruction. English operates as the defacto language of globalized higher education, with the assumption that it can be dehistoricized and value-free. Yet faculty teaching in international contexts know that English medium education biases many higher education practices, including text selection, the subordination of other languages, and often an associated second class treatment of non-Western cultures.
