Reconsidering John Dos Passos

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 5:54pm
American Literature Association (conference); Victoria Bryan (panel chair)

In recent years, John Dos Passos has fallen to somewhat low priority in critical study, but the few publications that do exist since the 1970s are engaging and compelling and stand as proof that this author deserves further consideration in our field. This individual panel proposal for ALA's 2011 convention hopes to illustrate the value of continuing to engage in scholarly research, critical conversation, and/or pedagogical approaches to John Dos Passos in the 21st century. Papers of about 20 minutes/10 pages in length on various approaches to Dos Passos's work will be considered for inclusion on the panel. Please submit an abstract of about 250 to 500 words, a CV, and any requests for A/V equipment to Victoria M.

[UPDATE] Oklahoma State University English Conference

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 4:08pm
English Graduate Student Association

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

Defining Academic Work in Modern Languages and Literatures

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 2:12pm
2012 Modern Language Association Conference in Seattle (Jan 5-8)

This panel seeks to analyze the nature of faculty work in modern languages and literatures from an interdisciplinary, scholarly perspective. What characterizes faculty labor in these fields and the humanities in general, especially as compared to work in other academic disciplines such as the natural and social sciences? How do configurations of academic work as variable combinations of teaching, scholarship and service justify or fail to justify different career tracks for faculty members? We seek papers that advance historical, philosophical, and theoretical analyses in order to explain current configurations of faculty work and help us to imagine new ones. 500 word abstract by March 15, 2011.

The Monument in Revision, Edited Collection (abstracts due April 1, 2011)

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 12:49pm
Joseph Donica/Southern Illinois University

With the renewed focus on monuments and memorials after 9/11 new questions are being raised and old ones revisited about how objects become memorialized or even de-memorialized. And while it is clear to us now that the monument's physical presence is always in jeopardy of disappearing, it is not as clear how a monument's meaning travels in and out of various conceptual spaces as the monument changes physical shape or adapts to the cultural ceremonies or power shifts of states.
