Graduate student writing is a topic receiving increasing attention in academic writing research; however, this discussion is happening primarily outside disciplinary fields, within the realms of writing centers, teaching and learning centers, and graduate schools. This session aims to bring the conversation directly to the MLA fields, and ask how we can best support the graduate student writers within our departments.
The T. S. Eliot Society will once again sponsor a panel at the annual South Atlantic Modern Languages Association conference (SAMLA), to be held in Durham, NC, November 13 - 15, 2015. Paper proposals addressing Eliot's many-sided engagement with the extraliterary arts, the SAMLA 87 theme, are especially welcome, but any abstract reasonably related to Eliot's life and works will be considered. By June 1, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to John Morgenstern, Clemson University, at email@example.com.
The MediaCommons Front Page Collective welcomes responses to the survey question: How can the increased scholarly study of cosplay become a benefit to education?
This survey question seeks to bring an understanding to the practice of cosplay and how it can increase different aspects of life, such as identity and community. While studying cosplay, differing questions that may arise include: What are some advantages to studying cosplay? How can digital studies and digital media further the outreach of cosplay? What does cosplay offer in terms of studying its influences on sexuality?
This is an open topic session, but we especially seek papers that explore the intersections of literature and politics in the Medieval and early modern periods. Please e-mail abstracts to Ashley Bender by March 31.
