As many as half of traditional undergraduate students will take an online class in their academic career before graduation. Conversations in the humanities regarding online learning typically address the challenges facing educators in transforming their face to face techniques into an online environment. This panel would seek to gather scholars who are have been leading the conversation in their home institutions about how to leverage digital learning environments to implement their best cyber pedagogy strategies. In particular, this panel asks that these scholars think of the ways that the digital archive, in its many iterations, influences and impacts virtual learning environment.
The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA) invites proposals for individual papers and three-person panels at its annual meeting in metropolitan Atlanta. The conference will be held on Friday, 29 January 2016, at Georgia Gwinnett College.

The plight of refugees far from their homeland has been a societal phenomenon for thousands of years. In the last two centuries alone, people have fled famine and fighting for resettlement in new lands. In the last two years, families have abandoned ancient villages for new destinations on other continents. Many families have left rural regions for urban centers during migrations within countries.

The colonial appropriation of indigenous place names has been an abiding concern of postcolonial studies. The severing of names from their semantic, grammatical, and linguistic ties within the native language and their re-contextualization within the language of the settler creates, in a variety of ways for both colonizer and colonized, a gap between the experience and meaning of a place and the name used to describe it, complicating the colonial boundary.
