CFP: Digital English: A Handbook for the 21st Century Classroom

Edited by Naomi Milthorpe, Robert Clarke, Joanne Jones, and Robbie Moore.

DEADLINE EXTENDED

Submissions due: October 31, 2017.

 

New university students are digital natives; our classrooms filled with technology. Our students are increasingly online only – distanced by the demands of economics, geography, or time. Yet as English scholars, most of our training has been with physical materials and face-to-face methods: books, paper, discussion. So what are the best methods of using technology in our classrooms? How, why, and when should we use it?

Papers addressing the difficulties of students for whom academia is foreign, considered in terms of the student’s alienation, psychological unpreparedness, underdeveloped perspective, etc. How can such students be incorporated into academia, and thereby into work (and life broadly) made accessible by education? Alternatively, should we seek such incorporation, or instead reimagine and change academia, and how? Institutions have implemented a variety of assimilation and retention strategies, some with better records than others. Some programs engage students individually, whereas others emphasize building communities; some strategies focus on key first-year courses, such as introductory writing.

On Teaching Tone as Well as Content at NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In our current climate of fake news from seemingly authoritative sources, and high journalistic integrity from formerly discounted sources, it is clear that our criteria for evaluating the reliability of sources is shifting. I propose that a lack of news literacy is part of a larger literacy problem: readers need to understand tone from context and form. For as long as we have been assigning our composition or literature classes to read "A Modest Proposal" or anything else with an unreliable narrator, and as long as we have been explaining to potential book banners that a book with blatantly racist characters is not inherently racist, we language and literature instructors have been developing strategies to teach tone.

CFP 3rd Congress of Metafiction and Intertextuality: New Theoretical Approaches

Metafiction and Intertextuality Seminar Acatlán (UNAM)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 4, 2017

Though metafiction and intertextuality phenomena are common to literature since ancient and classic works, their manifestation has spread exponentially with the coming of Modernity. Nowadays it's almost natural to find autoreferential mechanisms and jokes not only in literature, but in film, talk shows, publicity, websites and videogames. Human production in the XXIst Century can't be explained without considering any form of boundary transgression; consciousness of itertextuality itself has become a topic for memes about TV Series. Thus the panorama for studies has grown widely, and methodologies too have required a metatheoretical perspective.

Culture In Focus
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Culture In Focus, a new eJournal of the English Department at Middle Georgia State University, is seeking papers for its inaugural issue.  Never before has culture been so important. Culture, after all, matters! So for our first issue of Culture in Focus we are setting our sights on nothing less than the state of cultural studies as it is being practiced throughout the realms of language and literature, and indeed, in all the relevant areas that fall within the scope of this journal. What is new in critical analysis? What is being reassessed or reinterpreted? What are cultural specialists doing and saying now?
