We're looking for papers that demonstrate tools, techniques, or actual assignments that increase student success, enhance students' critical thinking, or encourage student involvement through unusual teaching methods (this can include flipping the classroom, interdisciplinary modes of rhetoric, or simply other types of ideas, projects, and assignments that have proved effective). We are interested in papers focused on means of engaging students in different ways of thinking about their own position in society and in understanding other communities.

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.

We welcome interdisciplinary papers that address the profession from psychological, structural, ethnographic, folkloric, historical, or cultural studies perspectives. Presentations on literary, filmic, or other cultural representations of teaching are also welcome.

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.

REMINDER: Teaching Terrorism-- Roundtable at NeMLA 2018

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Call for papers for a roundtable at the 2018 NeMLA conference in Pittsburgh, April 12-15: https://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/session.html

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.

The College English Association solicits abstracts on the special focus of the 89th SAMLA conference from November 3-5 in Atlanta: “High Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture.” From the selection of singer and songwriter Bob Dylan as the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature last year to the election as President of a former reality-television star, the topic could not be more timely nor seminal.
