For this roundtable discussion panel, participants will be asked to prepare a very brief, five-minute presentation of their work as it pertains to digital feminisms, social justice activism, social justice pedagogy, or community engagement. In addition to these topics, other topics may include digital teaching tools (websites, blogs, geo-mapping, podcasts, videos, web-archives, etc.), digital activism and critical media, experimental pedagogy, and collaborative, inter-university projects. Presentations may reflect on theoretical contexts for intersections between these topics, or they may demonstrate actual hands-on projects that exemplify those intersections for use in teaching and research.

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

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.
