The twinned concepts of idle and stasis have recently been brought to the forefront of political conversations in Canada because of the Idle No More grassroots movement, which is one of the many manifestations of a protest culture encircling the globe. No longer silent in the face of the continuing effects of colonialism and its derivative hierarchical structures, indigenous populations and other citizens are registering their discontent, while fostering networks of solidarity.

[UPDATE] Submission Deadline Extended to May 1st. 'Love that Moves the Sun and Other Stars': Exploring the Virtues in Literature

Holly Ordway / Houston Baptist University

From the classical period to today, the virtues have served as a means of self-examination, a guide for self-reflection, a pattern for living a good life, and an inspiration for literary composition. For Christians, the virtues have the added dimension of being rooted in the revelation of God's character. This re-orientation of the understanding of virtue means that pursuing virtue can be a spiritual discipline as well as a form of witness.
Literature provides a powerful means of reflecting on what virtue is, how the expression of particular virtues shapes actions and character, and what a virtuous life looks like in various times, places, and cultures.

[Reminder] Explorations of Childhood in Nineteenth Century Working Class Life Writing (PAMLA, San Diego, CA, Nov 1-3, 2

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 4:53pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This panel is designed to examine ideas of childhood based on the life writing of working class people. The life writing could include autobiographies, diaries, letters, and/or compilations of life writing fragments. How is child labor/schooling discussed in life writing from working class individuals? How are ideas of childhood vs. adulthood altered through the necessities of class and work? Questions such as these can highlight how ideas of childhood are frequently tied to middle class identity and development, especially during the nineteenth century. A comparison can be made between working class presentations in fiction as opposed to life writing.
