The Emerson Society are inviting proposals that examine or encourage strategies for teaching Emerson, informed by disciplines other than English or methods other than literary criticism, for example, rhetoric, journalism and media studies, environmental studies, creative writing, philosophy and religion, gender studies, material culture, etc. The society is also interested in receiving proposals that consider pedagogies and approaches that engage the younger generation with the core ideas/ideals of Emerson, reviving them for the current age.
