Reminder: Please submit abstracts by September 31 for "The Art of Reading: Theory, Practice, Pedagogy" panel at NeMLA 2014 (April 2014).

In "The Art of Fiction," Toni Morrison differentiates between reading as a skill and reading as an art. The skill, Morrison writes, enables readers to "negotiate life with some measure of control." The art is a "different beast all together."

The Canon and Cultural Studies in the Composition Classroom

updated: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - 12:18pm
NeMLA, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Since the "culture wars" of the 1980s and 90s, the significance of canonical authors towards a general education has been argued by both the left and right. As the debris from those arguments has settled it's clear that the canon has remained central to humanistic education, but in what way? While conservatives may have feared the dissolution of the traditional canon and liberals pushed the need for greater inclusiveness, it's obvious that détente in the culture wars has resulted in perhaps a different educational status quo entirely.

[UPDATE] Paving the Way: Roads, Rivers, and Railways in Culture and Criticism

updated: 
Monday, September 9, 2013 - 11:27am
Natures 2014 [featuring Dr. Cheryll Glotfelty as the plenary speaker]

This conference will explore the ways in which culture has shaped and been shaped by the ever-growing and changing sources of human expansion. From ancient game trails to winding river routes, from the roads of the Roman empire to the railroads of the British Empire, from the multi-laned freeways of modernity to the internet of the new millennium, humans have marked and been marked by the earth while pushing against their physical limitations. In a parallel way, people have pushed against the ideologies of their community and forged new paths into and through social consciousness, reflecting, refining, and expanding these revolutionary ideas through cultural and critical expressions.
