Writing Across the Curriculum (MMLA) (Deadline Extended)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 20, 2020

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.

Topics might include, but are not limited to:

Alienation and De-alienation in the Composition Classroom (CEA at MLA 2021)

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 - 4:15pm
Andrew Beutel/College English Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 7, 2020

This panel, sponsored by the College English Association, explores how the concept of alienation can be applied to a field in which it has not received very much attention: composition pedagogy. Generally meaning an undesirable separation between self and world (i.e., other human beings, nature, and social roles, norms, and institutions), alienation has been analyzed in various contexts by philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, and critical theorists. While it came to be viewed as problematic and outmoded with the rise of postmodernism, the concept is far from obsolete today. On the contrary, alienation remains both a widely experienced psychosocial issue and a vital theoretical and diagnostic tool.
