Myth and Fairy Tale Call for Papers

Abstract/Proposals Due: 1 December 2011

Southwest/Texas Popular Culture & American Culture Association's 33rd Annual Conference
Albuquerque, NM February 8-11 2012

Panels now forming on topics related to all areas of myth and fairy tale and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales (one or the other is perfectly fine), but we have seen that bringing both genre categories into conversation has led to extremely valuable and stimulating conversations.

Scepticism and Doubt Across Cultures of Crisis: (ACLA panel) March 29 - April 1 2012

updated: 
Saturday, October 1, 2011 - 5:46am
American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference

Are unhappy ages, and their literary productions, less alike than happy ones? In Two Ages, Kierkegaard says that 'In an era of negativity the authentic ironist is the hidden enthusiast'. For J Hillis Miller in The Disappearance of God, meanwhile, Victorian literature is animated by a more dynamic sense of doubt than that celebrated by the modernists who took God's disappearance and other catastrophes for granted. Both these comparative examinations of pessimism suggest that every age has its own sense and its own rhetoric of crisis; and that crisis-born scepticism is interesting in proportion to its degree of doubt and uncertainty, to the contingency of its gestures towards a reclamation of faith.

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 - 7:33pm
Charles A. S. Ernst / College English Association

500-word proposals for 15-minute papers/presentations on the use of metacognition strategies in the context of active learning & appropriate technological support in teaching literature or composition in classroom settings. Metacognition encompasses "learning how we learn" activities and techniques. Active learning presumes learner-based instruction, and may include problem-based learning, inquiry-based learning, collaborative learning, or other forms of active learning, including the use of technology—PowerPoint, SmartBoards, clickers, the Internet (e.g., YouTube, Facebook, other learning sites/styles).
