Pedagogy as an essential part of the learning and teaching culture has an ever more important place in community colleges where we continually rethink and revise our practices for our often non-traditional student population and for a population less aware of the value of the written word. Building on the success of our first conference, Transitions and Transactions II: Literature and Creative Pedagogies invites Community College faculty to send proposals for the April 25-27, 2014 conference presented by Borough of Manhattan Community College, English Department.
The academic interest in children's literature has been growing in popularity. Why do these stories interest a young audience as well as adults? Why are new versions of old stories still interesting? Is the story itself compelling, or are readers fascinated with the aspect of the child itself? This session will focus on children's literature as well as literature about children. Papers can range from any time period and genre (young adult, picture book, folk, film, etc.) Submit a proposal of 300-500 words explaining your project pertaining to the realm of children's literature.
Topics prospective panelists may wish to address include, but are not limited to the following:
Call for Papers -- MLA 2014, Chicago

Rights are entitlements or justifiable claims; human rights are a special kind of claim that one is entitled to by virtue of being human. In her recent study _Inventing Human Rights_ (2008), Lynn Hunt argues that rights were imagined as natural, inalienable, and universal in eighteenth-century sentimental literature, prior to their promulgation in the revolutionary Declarations. Specifically, for Hunt, it is by extensively documenting the flagrant wrongs suffered by various disenfranchised groups—women, slaves, prisoners, the insane— in the form of rape, enslavement, and carceral torture that sentimental fiction implicitly underscored their rights to bodily integrity and self-possession.
The Cultural Studies Student Organizing Committee (SOC) at George Mason University invites paper proposals for our 8th annual Cultural Studies Graduate Student Conference. The conference will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
