Shelley S. Rees

Seeking presentations for the "Pedagogy" section of the 2012 conference of the SW/TX PCA/ACA on the subject of teaching video games as primary texts. Many instructors have begun using video games as teaching tools, but recent developments in video game theory allow for interpretation and analysis of these texts as texts, not merely as vehicles for tangential applications.

Possible topics for this session include but are not limited to: Strategies for teaching a particular game; Teaching gaming theory; Ludology and pedagogy; Convincing your department/institution to support gaming studies.

Please submit 300-word proposals as Word attachments to Shelley S. Rees at srees@usao.edu by 15 November 2011.

AMERICAN LITERATURE: A proposed panel for the American
 Literature Association Conference, May 24-27, 2012 in San Francisco.

Monday, September 19, 2011 - 2:50pm
Andy Dorsey

This panel will explore "experience" as a constructed form of knowledge in American literature. Papers
 may focus on one text, on works by one author, or on multiple writers. I am also interested in essays centering on experience in connection with American literary historiography. Of particular interest are analyses of scholarly traditions that privilege experience as an epistemological category—often in the service of arguments that foreground the distinctiveness and/or the exceptional quality of American culture. Essays may address any American literary period(s), genre(s), and/or themes. Papers may also compare constructions of experience in American literature with the literatures of other linguistic, national, and/or cultural groups.

Home/Land: Women, Citizenship, Photographies

Conference Call for Papers

HOME/LAND: WOMEN, CITIZENSHIP, PHOTOGRAPHIES
5-7 July 2012
The School of the Arts, Loughborough University, UK

Home/Land is an interdisciplinary conference that asks what dialogues might be engendered, globally and locally, around concepts of citizenship and belonging by engaging with women's photographic practices. In the terms of this conference, 'photographic practices' may include both historical and contemporary work, still and/or moving image, derived from fine art and social science contexts and embracing genres such as portraiture, landscape, documentary and installation.
