At the Edge: New Americanist Pedagogy

We seek submissions for a new digital project that focuses on innovative teaching in American literary and cultural studies. An open-access site, At the Edge aims to highlight emergent approaches in the field and offer possibilities for shaping class meetings and course plans around those approaches.

We hope At the Edge will offer scholars and teachers a lively forum for reflecting on our teaching practices, exchanging ideas about how we make our discipline come alive for our students, and presenting exciting new finds from the digital archives, and in the process, opening our classrooms to a broad audience of fellow teacher/scholars in the field.

Please consider submitting in one of the following categories:

4th Global Conference
Making Sense of: Pain

Thursday 9th May – Saturday 11th May 2013
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
What is pain? What is the meaning of pain? How can we attempt to make sense of it—and should we?

Pain is a complex multi-layered, multi-leveled phenomenon. Standard definitions of pain view it primarily in physical terms as being a life-preserving response to negative stimuli in sentient beings. It is something that happens to and/or in parts of the body. It is described in terms of physical qualities, as an object to be observed, assessed, analysed, managed, overcome and/or eliminated.
