[UPDATE] [SAMLA Nov. 9-11, 2013] Literary Science: Approaches to Teaching Literture with Scientific Themes and Contexts

updated: 
Thursday, June 21, 2012 - 10:15am
Paul Brown/ University of South Carolina

This panel investigates how to effectively teach literature that contains strong scientific elements. Literature actively participates in the ongoing rhetoric of scientific inquiry and discourse and gives voice to the promise and fears associated with technological advancement. Many literary works engage very particular aspects of theory and practice from fields such as neurobiology or quantum physics while others engage with the rhetoric associated with science and/or its misinterpretations (Social Darwinism for Evolution or relativism for Relativity, etc.).

Charting the Tradition: Irish Women's Fiction, 1880-1930; 2012 SAMLA Convention, Nov. 9-11; Deadline July 13, 2012

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 7:56pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

This special session seeks papers that focus on any aspect of Irish women's fiction from approximately 1880-1930. Irish women's writing from nineteenth and early twentieth centuries remains underresearched, though several volumes, including Ann Owens Weekes's Irish Women Writers: An Uncharted Tradition, have sought to remedy this lack. This session aims to encourage such continued exploration.

Please send proposals in Word format as attachments of 250-300 words to Dr. Audrey D. Johnson, johnsonaudreyd@gmail.com, by July 13, 2012.

1st Global Conference
The Citizen in the 21st Century

Monday 4th February – Wednesday 6th February 2013
Sydney, Australia

Call for Presentations:
n its most basic conceptualisation, citizenship is thought of as the rights and responsibilities that an individual has, and is owed to, a national government. The political concept of 'citizenship', however, is one that has been contested from its very beginning: from above, it has been a mechanism of control and surveillance; while from below, it is has been used as a tool for resistance and claims for rights and representation.
