The Teaching of Literature across Two-Year and Four-Year Colleges: Comparative Perspectives @ACLA, Mar 17-20, 2016, Cambridge MA

updated: 
Friday, September 18, 2015 - 1:41pm
American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2016

Organizer: Dominique Zino, LaGuardia Community College (CUNY)

This seminar seeks to bring into conversation a range of faculty – tenured and tenure-track professors, adjunct lecturers, and graduate students – teaching at two-year and four-year institutions.

We will aim to discuss the following pedagogical questions: What ways of reading, writing, and thinking should students be introduced to in their first two years of college, especially if they plan to study literature at a four-year college or university? What do we value most as teachers of literature? What concepts, skills, or texts do we find most fundamental to helping students to read literature deeply and to apply it to other realms of learning?

North East Modern Language Association

From artist Hans Bellmer's distorted dolls, to Rupert Brooke's "dust" in a "corner of a foreign field," to Virginia Woolf's "orts, scraps, and fragments," bodies – textual, phenomenological, cultural, political, and physical – seem to fall to pieces in modernism. How can we conceptualize the modern body in light of its affective and ecological surrounds?

Creative Alternatives to Neoliberalism: Poetic Word in Urban Spaces

In this seminar, we invite papers that explore the ways in which poetic words engage with the material and the immaterial in the contemporary urban world, marked by spatial inequality, racism, sexism and the related phenomena of segregation, marginalization, gentrification, or deliberate decay. Many examples of contemporary urban poetry speak about, and from within, spaces marked by the watershed of neoliberal policies, principles and beliefs, and the financial crisis of 2007-08.

Crip Futurities: The Then and There of Disability Studies (Feb. 11-12, 2016)

Crip Futurities: The Then and There of Disability Studies
keynote speakers: Ellen Samuels (UW-Madison) and Alison Kafer (Southwestern)

February 11-12, 2016
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

When we imagine future worlds, will they be accessible? What might crip future(s) entail? Following Alison Kafer's "politics of crip futurity" outlined in Feminist, Queer, Crip, this conference centers the then-and-there of Disability Studies, wherein disability is not understood as lack or impediment, but as a "potential site for collective reimagining" (Kafer 9). We seek to nurture coalitions between scholars, artists, and activists who collectively aim to articulate the future of Disability Studies.
