Call for Presenters: Collaborative Student Learning Workshop

Wednesday, December 14, 2011 - 3:53pm
Plymouth State University Medieval & Renaissance Forum

This teachers' workshop will focus on collaborative, student-driven learning and ways that we can get the students in our classes connected with one another to improve their learning experiences. We encourage proposals that make use of medieval and/or Renaissance texts as the focal point of the lessons presented. In place of "papers" to present, we are looking to solicit 3 or 4 mini-teaching demonstrations where presenters would provide a 10-15 minute mini-lesson on one collaborative learning approach that audience members and other participants could take back to use in their own classrooms. Additionally, these lesson plans may be considered for publication in the Forum journal or The Once and Future Classroom.

6th Conference on the Fantastic & the Miraculous - "Mythic Models of Identity" March 27-28, 2012

HOMO MYTHICUS – MYTHIC MODELS OF IDENTITY

The contemporary culture draws on the mythic on various levels in a variety of aspects. The multiformity of myth and its resistance to being defined make myth-related references both attractive and troublesome for researchers. Mythic elements in literary works and cultural artefacts often get degraded or trivialised; sometimes they are simply problematic. In modern culture and literature, myth seems to some extent to be living a life of its own. Avoiding ultimate interpretation and analysis and hiding in even the most obvious references, myth remains a realm open to explore.
