How have place-based rhetorical strategies re-imagined how we see the composition classroom, both as a physical space and a cultural space? This special session welcomes critical perspectives on place within composition pedagogy to re-inform classroom practices.

This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by May 21, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

CFP: How is it Possible to Think Through and Beyond Catastrophe? Composing for a Common, Livable World

The slowly unfolding catastrophe currently referred to as ‘Anthropocene’ generates a number of dire questions that we cannot even ask – let alone begin to answer – without deep thought. This panel asks how such deep thought might be possible in the face of the self-indulgent apocalypse narratives (Haraway), barbarism, infernal alternatives and sorcery (Stengers), and blind panic / desire to look away (Klein) that are engendered in catastrophic time. What creative practices and pathways can we cultivate to make thought possible?

Amongst the many perspectives we may consider is this provocation from “Staying with the Trouble” by Donna Haraway:
